NYT's Bruni Ties Trump Family to College Admissions Scandal: Not 'Morally Different'
By Mark Finkelstein | March 13, 2019 7:41 AM EDT

The college admissions scandal: finally, a big story which the MSM can't pin to President Trump. But not so fast, my friend! Where there's a will to trash Trump, there's a way.

And so it was that this morning, CNN, with a big assist from New York Times columnist and CNN contributor Frank Bruni, found a way to tie the Trump family to the admissions scandal.

On New Day, Bruni suggested that a donation to Harvard made by Jared Kushner's father was not "morally different" from the crimes committed in the college admissions scandal. Right. Other than the Kushner donation being legal, and the crimes being, uh, crimes.

But hey, for the MSM, any excuse is good to tie Trump to criminality!

If CNN is so scandalized by Kushner getting into Harvard, it should tell us how CNN's own Chris Cuomo, son of former New York Governor Mario, got into Yale. Were his grades and SATs in the top 1-2%, like the vast majority of non-minority Yale applicants admitted on their own merits?

Au contraire. It is both morally and factually different, Mr. Bruni.
I have decided to officially and formally not apologize. I'm not sorry at all, even slightly.

    Indeed, I especially want to convey my absence of remorse to anyone who was offended by what I said. If you are the sort of person who gets twisted into knots when someone articulates a point of view that differs from your own, then you are exactly the sort of person who should never receive an apology for a differing point of view — if I were offering one, which, again, I'm not.

Not for a Liberal.

Remember, with liberals, methods don't matter, only the result.

Also, their "morality" has no base, it's only what they want it to be that day.
