Tucker Investigates: How did Chris Cuomo get into Yale?


>>Tucker: IF YOU’VE EVER WATCH CHRIS CUOMO ON CNN, YOU WONDER HOW THIS GUY GOT A TV SHOW. HE HAS GOOD ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, GOOD FOR HIM, BUT HE CAN’T SPEAK ENGLISH. JUST PURE GIBBERISH. LIKE PIG LATIN, DOGS BARKING. KIND OF REMARKABLE. IS THIS GUY EDUCATED IN THE UNITED STATES BOOKS MAKE LET’S CHECK. WAIT A SECOND. THE ENTRY SAYS CHRIS FOREMAN WENT TO YALE UNIVERSITY IN CONNECTICUT. YALE HAS FAMOUSLY HIGH ADMISSION STANDARDS FOR YOUR KIDS COULDN’T GET INTO YALE. NO CHANCE FOR THEY’D HAVE TO BE INCREDIBLY SMART, GENIUSES, REALLY. IS CHRIS CUOMO A SECRET GENIUS? DOES HE HAVE SOME AMAZING TALENT THAT’S INVISIBLE ON TELEVISION? MAYBE HE SPEAKS URDU, A DEEP GROUNDING IN PART OF THE PHYSICS. MAYBE HE CAN CALCULATE PI TO THE FINAL DIGIT. TURNS OUT HE HAS A MORE IMPRESSIVE QUALIFICATION. HIS FATHER WAS THE GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK. IF YOU WANT TO GET INTO A TOP AMERICAN COLLEGE, IT’S BEST TO HAVE A PARENT WHO IS A WELL-KNOWN DEMOCRATIC POLITICIAN. THAT’S THE MOST EFFECTIVE QUALIFICATION OF ALL. DON’T TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT. TAKE DANTE de BLASIO, THE SON OF BILL de BLASIO, THE INCOMPETENT MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY. LIKE CHRIS CUOMO, HE SOMEHOW GOT NTL. ONCE THERE, DANTE de BLASIO FOUND HIMSELF SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE JUST LIKE HIMSELF, THE THOROUGHLY AVERAGE CHILDREN OF OTHER PROMINENT LIBERALS. ACCORDING TO PRESS REPORTS, THAT WOULD INCLUDE THE OFFSPRING OF AT LEAST THREE DEMOCRATS CURRENTLY SERVING IN THE U.S. SENATE. MICHAEL BENNET, AMY KLOBUCHAR, AND SHELDON WHITEHOUSE. ALL OF THEM SEND KIDS TO YALE. DID YOU? NO. BUT THEY DID. THEIR COLLEAGUE RICHARD BLUMENTHAL IS A STUNNING NUMBER OF SENATE DEMOCRATS WHO HAVE SENT CHILDREN TO HARVARD UNIVERSITY. SENATOR BOB MENDEZ IS A HARVARD PARENT, SO IT’S IN IS SENATE MINORITY LEADER CHUCK SCHUMER. SCHUMER SAID TO MAKE SENSE BOTH OF HIS KIDS TO HARVARD FOR BARACK OBAMA SENT ONE OF HIS, SO DID FORMER NEW YORK GOVERNOR ELIOT SPITZER. THE RECORD GOES TO FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE. AL GORE’S AN FOUR — IMAGINE THAT, FOUR KIDS IN A ROW TO HARVARD. IT’S ABOUT AS LIKELY ABOUT GETTING HIT BY LIGHTNING EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE YEAR, AND SOMEHOW THE GORE FAMILY PULLED IT OFF. CONGRATULATIONS, GORE FAMILY. ANDREW CUOMO, THE SITTING GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK SENT ONE OF HIS KIDS TO HARVARD, BUT SENT SOME TO BROWN. THAT’S ANOTHER IVY LEAGUE UNIVERSITY THAT YOUR KIDS CAN NEVER GET TO. HIGHLY SELECTIVE, APPARENTLY FOR THE KIDS OF NONPOLITICIANS. NONE BEAT STANFORD YOU CAN NEVER MEET A SINGLE PERSON WHO WENT TO STANFORD. IT’S THAT RAREFIED. YET HERE IS THE AMAZING PART. HILLARY CLINTON’S DAUGHTER READS RIGHT IN. HOW DID CHELSEA DO THAT? WAS IT HER FORMIDABLE BRAINPOWER? YOU CAN CHECK OUT HER FOOD OR FEED AND JUDGE FOR YOURSELF. THERE IS A CHANCE THAT CHELSEA IS INTENTIONALLY MISLEADING US. IT’S POSSIBLE THAT HER IF THAT’S THE CASE, CHELSEA CLINTON IS UTTERLY BRILLIANT. SHE’S THE JONATHAN SWIFT OF OUR TIME. BUT IT’S ALSO POSSIBLE THAT CHELSEA ISN’T JOKING AT ALL. IT’S POSSIBLE. IT’S EVEN PROBABLE THAT SHE IS EVERY BIT AS DULL AND SELF SERIOUS AS SHE APPEARS TO BE. IN THAT CASE, NOT ONLY IS CHELSEA CLINTON PROFILED LISA BRILLIANT, YOU HAVE TO WONDER HOW SHE HOLDS A JOB. HOW DOES SOMEONE LIKE THAT GET INTO STANFORD? SOME OF THE KIDS AT GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY IN WASHINGTON, D.C. GEORGETOWN’S ALUMNI MAGAZINE AVAILABLE ONLINE, SO THE NEXT TIME YOU HAVE A SECOND FOR YOU, TAKE A LOOK THAT YOU’LL RECOGNIZE MANY OF THE NAMES INSIDE. BIDEN, PELOSI, KENNEDY. THESE ARE THE CHILDREN OF FAMOUS DEMOCRATIC POLITICIANS. ARE THEY IMPRESSIVE, HARDWORKING KIDS WHO DESERVE TO BE AT ONE OF THE COUNTRIES MOST PRESTIGIOUS UNIVERSITIES? MAY BE. MAYBE SOME OF THEM. MAYBE NOT. IT DOESN’T MATTER. IT’S IRRELEVANT. THEY ARE THE OFFSPRING OF PROMINENT DEMOCRATS. THAT’S THE POINT. THAT’S WHY THEY ARE AT THE GEORGETOWN FEAR AND HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN? IT HAPPENS BECAUSE OUR MERITOCRACY IS A SHAM. IT’S FAKE. THEY TELL YOU THAT ONLY THE MOST ACCOMPLISHED STUDENTS GET INTO THESE SCHOOLS, BUT THEY ARE LYING. THEIR FRIENDS’ KIDS GET FIRST DIBS, KIDS WHOSE FAMILIES CAN HELP THEM DOWN THE ROAD. THE CHILDREN OF SOME PATHETIC POLITICIANS ARE AN OBVIOUS PRIORITY FOR ADMISSIONS OFFICERS. THESE ARE THE SAME POLITICIANS WHO FUNNELED BILLIONS OF TAX DOLLARS TO COLLEGE UNIVERSITIES EVERY YEAR. LETTING A SENATOR’S KID EVERY YEAR IN IS QUICK QUOTE PRO, UNREGULATED LOBBYING. REMEMBER THE VARSITY BLUES WERE A GROUP OF SOCCER MOMS TRIED TO GAIN IN THE ADMISSIONS SYSTEM? THIS IS FARM WORK CORRUPT. HOW MANY CHRIS CUOMOS GET IN EVERY YEAR? JUST LIKE HIGHER EDUCATION, IT’S A PICTURE PRESTIGIOUS SCHOOLS PRETEND THEY ONLY ADMIT THE ONLY QUALIFIED APPLICANTS BECAUSE NOBODY CAN PROVE OTHERWISE. THE REAL ADMISSIONS NUMBERS ARE SECRET, HIDDEN FROM PUBLIC VIEW. EVEN THOUGH WE PAY FOR THOSE SCHOOLS BECAUSE ALL OF THEM TAKE MASSIVE AMOUNTS IN TAX DOLLARS. ELITE COLLEGES ARE LIKE PUBLIC COMPANIES THAT LIE ABOUT THEIR BALANCE SHEETS. THEY ARE COOKING THE BOOKS TO DEFRAUD SHAREHOLDERS. IN THIS CASE, THE SHAREHOLDERS ARE THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. A HANDFUL OF ELITE SCHOOLS FROM THE GATEWAY TO SUCCESS IN AMERICA. IF YOU GO TO HARVARD, YOU ARE ALL BUT GUARANTEED TO MAKE MONEY OVER THE COURSE OF YOUR LIFE THAN SOMEONE WHO DIDN’T GO TO HARVARD. IT’S THAT SIMPLE. AND SO WHEN YOU RIG THE ADMISSION SYSTEM, WHAT YOU ARE REALLY RIGGING IS AMERICAN SOCIETY. YOU ARE CREATING AN IMPENETRABLE CLASS SYSTEM FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT. THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING. YOU OFTEN HEAR PROGRESSIVES SAY THAT THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT INCOME INEQUALITY. THEY DON’T MEAN IT. AT ALL. HOW DO YOU KNOW THEY DON’T MEAN IT? IF THE LEFT REALLY CLEARED ABOUT THE STRATIFICATION OF AMERICAN SOCIETY, THEY WOULD MAKE COLLEGE ADMISSIONS TRANSPARENT. THEY FORCED STANFORD TO OPEN THE BOOKS AND SHOW US HOW THEY ARE ASSEMBLING THIS YEAR’S FRESHMAN CLASS. THAT’S WHAT THEY DO. BUT DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS HAVEN’T DONE THAT. AND WANT TO DO THAT. THEY SEEM STRANGELY INCURIOUS ABOUT HOW THE PROCESS WORKS. LIKE THEY DON’T WANT TO KNOW ALL THE DETAILS. IN FACT, THEY ALREADY KNOW

  1. Perfectly pitched to the morons who think Fox News has any relevance to meaningful political discourse.  Well done Tucker, and enjoy the bones Rupert throws to you. Now sit.

  2. I graduated from University of XXXXXXXXXX (Add your State), Cuomo must be a shining beacon of scholarly excellence compared to the unwashed masses like myself, who had to pay their way through to graduation.

  3. I don't believe that tucker is comparing his intelligence to that of Chris cuomo . I have watched them both and hands down Chris mops the floor with tucker. Tucker whines and talks like someone took away his favorite toys.

  4. Such a silly, biased piece. Elite colleges admit strategically, including the very wealthy, and reward things like being a legacy. We all know this. Think of all the Trumps, for example. Do you really think Don, Jr. got in to the Ivy League based on his smarts? Or, consider Jared Kushner. Objectively, does he really seem like Harvard material? Why pretend that it's the children of Democratic politicians who are ubiquely benefiting from this system? His only objective is to supporti his incredibly biased narrative.

  5. I applied for a IB Leagues school. Had a 93 GPA, loads of volunteer hours, pre-engineering, math, and advanced science courses…and the lady who was posed to interview me kept changing the date to a point that I never had the chance to complete my application before the date it was due. AND the only reason I wanted to go to that school because it was considered one of the best schools for astrophysics in the USA.

    The tuition a semester was $60,000 and due to being middle class, it was going to be lowered to half (which is still a lot but I was going to work while I went to school to make sure whatever student loans I had wouldn’t be high) and with the school name and their connections—it would be easy for me to get hired because of the schools name. I knew the local universities were okay and ranges to excellent, but their names weren’t well known and getting a job with my degree would be more difficult…and it is.
