After the reveal of the nationwide college admissions scandal, in which actress Lori Loughlin among others, was found to have allegedly “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team—despite the fact that they did not participate in crew—thereby facilitating their admission to USC,” people are really realizing how rigged the system has been in favor of the wealthy all along.
And as you can well imagine, we are not happy about it.

This is how I picture the conversation between Olivia Jade and Lori Loughlin going down!

May you have as much confidence as Lori Loughlin signing autographs before her court appearance pic.twitter.com/gcRJHAYppj

Following her court appearance in Boston, where Loughlin appeared to be laughing and signing autographs, The View‘s Meghan McCain, daughter of the late U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) unexpectedly criticized Loughlin as the “face of everything, culturally, we hate about White privilege.”
The weird part is, she’s definitely not wrong about that…but McCain herself is in an odd position to comment on White privilege.
Meghan McCain called Lori Loughlin "the face of white privilege".
This is coming from the poster child of nepotism. If Meghan McCain wasn’t the daughter of a United States senator and a multi millionaire heiress, I doubt she would be working on The View.

Well, yes…but she's right about this.

Truly, does Meghan McCain really listen to the words coming from her mouth? Those who benefit most from “white privilege” are like fish. The benefit of water to fish goes without saying, is taken for granted: by fish. McCain’s daughter benefits because of her father’s veneration.

Its even more comical when you consider the Keating 5 scandal.
Plenty of shady financials in that families closet

McCain said that Loughlin’s behavior was awkward and kind of offensive.
“As someone who loves a party bus, she arrived to court in a party bus with her lawyers,” McCain said.
“I thought that was weird. Then she’s getting out and waving and smiling. It’s like, you did a heinous crime. We don’t know the ramifications, and you’re acting like it’s a red carpet. It’s amazing and so far off from the seriousness of this case, and I think it offended so many people.”
Again, while not wrong…does McCain know who her father was and presumably why she has her job on The View?
Ironic fox is here to point out some gatdam irony.

I’m the daughter of John McCain and I know privilege!

She really has zero self awareness

Some sad news. Irony died today. Meghan McCain killed it. https://t.co/9WlhScZwjc

McCain seems completely unaware of the irony, but viewers are taking close notice.
Recent news stories aside, Lori Loughlin learned a skill and worked to achieve success whereas Meghan McCain's notoriety is 100% based on who her father was.
— Doug Gately (@DougGately) April 5, 2019
Right, because Meghan McCain has become a regular face on TV because of her hard work and intellect, not because she's a brain-dead motormouth who happens to be the daughter of a former U.S. Senator.
The lack of self-awareness of shitheads is…well, not exactly stunning.

ain’t she the one who touts her dad 24/7 and just said that she thinks legacy admissions are a good thing because her family did it? pic.twitter.com/9eWtVUdH9y

Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, both headliners of the scandal, have yet to cut deals.
They face up to five years in prison if convicted.
