    College cheating scandal dad Mossimo Giannulli heard blasting ‘entitled people’

    Comic Tom Arnold told a tantalizing tale of a run-in with an LA power couple caught up in the college admissions scandal.

    “Couple [weeks] ago I got into it … for 10th time with #CollegeCheatingScandal DAD at big party cause his sloppy ass was rambling on again about Trump & people carrying their own weight & his own conservative politics being ‘right of Attila the Hun.’ He embarrassed Scandal Mom again,” tweeted lefty Arnold.

    Sources told Page Six that the “dad” in question was Mossimo Giannulli, the fashion designer husband of “Full House” star Lori Loughlin. We’re told that the argument with Arnold went down at Steve Tisch’s 70th birthday party at the Hollywood Palladium last month.

    A spy seconded Arnold’s account, telling Page Six, “Mossimo was talking about how he agrees with Trump, and that people need to carry their own weight. He was saying there’s a lot of ‘takers’ out there and entitled people.”

    People in USA may be outraged because it's NOT commonplace. As I said, in a lot of other countries (especially 3rd world) this is commonplace; as is corruption in general.

    Ever get stopped by a traffic cop in Mexico? Did you give him $20 to be on your way? I've lived in many different countries and believe me, the above example is minor compared to others I've been thru or witnessed, lol.

    But does it make it right? Justified?

    No?

    Then why are you even REMOTELY attempting to mitigate it?

    One of the first moral lessons I ever remember learning from my parents is... "well, so and so do it" as an excuse is completely false. Either to excuse your own behavior or someone else's.


    Personally, I thank my parents for that. Everyone is responsible for their own actions. Period.

    Is Bernie pushing policy that enriches himself?

    The answer to the question you didn't respond to was..... zero. All 237 House and Senate Democrats voted "No".

    Business Insider reported last month that Sanders has made 1.75m in book royalties since 2016. He was also elected to the House in 1990 and so essentially received a six-figure salary for 30 years. It was $96.6k in 1990 (about $186k in today's dollars), and has been frozen at $174k since 2009. This is all coupled with a low cost of living in his home state and benefits like the congressional health plan. So it's not actually at all surprising that he could be a multi-millionaire.

    What specific implication are you making? Are you questioning that he makes this money, or how he spends it? Or are you saying he's taking shady money?
