Sen. Warren Has ‘Zero’ Sympathy for People Involved in Alleged Fraudulent Entry Into Colleges

Presidential candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) weighed in on the massive college admissions scandal that broke on Tuesday.

“So as a parent, how much sympathy would you have for these parents who are embroiled in this alleged cheating scandal,” Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski asked.

“Zero,” Warren replied.

The interaction has gotten a lot of attention on Twitter given Warren’s history with her now-proven exaggerated claims of Native American heritage while she was a professor at Harvard:

The college scandal was described as the “largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice,” by Andrew Lelling, U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts. Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among 50 people accused by the FBI of allegedly taking part in it.
