Yes they do.
And they do.
“Birds of a feather flock together” is an old English proverb, dating back over 500 years. It suggests that people of like beliefs and like behaviors that travel in similar circles tend to congregate together and with each other.
Just as with many stereotypes, these proverbs are usually based in truth.
In this case particular case, we have the Obamas involved with an individual who is being charged in the recent college entrance bribery scheme.
According to Ryan Gaydos of Fox News, “A tennis coach who worked with the family of former President Barack Obama was among the 50 people charged Tuesday in a college admissions scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly bribed coaches and others to get their children accepted to some of the top schools in the U.S.”
“Gordon Ernst, 52, was a former tennis coach at Georgetown University and the University of Rhode Island. He is accused of conspiracy to commit racketeering while he was at Georgetown.”
“Ernst was at Georgetown [University] from 2012 to 2017 and was the personal instructor of former first lady Michelle Obama and her daughters, Sasha and Malia, according to the Providence Journal.”
“None of the Obamas are implicated in the scandal in any way.”
No…, of course they’re not.
But there is also something called “guilt by association.”
Here we have a guy, working with the president’s wife and his daughters as a “personal instructor.”
How was he referred for this job?
Who referred him for this job?
Was he not checked out before being allowed to work so closely with the first family?
I’m just wondering.
Or were his “special skills” as a college recruiter put to use in the case of the Obama family girls as well?
How about Obama family friends?
How about other individuals in the Obama administration?
Aren’t these valid questions given the situation?
I mean, I know the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” would never go down that road, but I would think a responsible and fair media would find its way to at least check this out a little bit.
“Ernst allegedly accepted nearly $3 million in bribes and in return helped a dozen students get onto the Georgetown’s tennis team, including kids who didn’t actually play the sport in a competitive fashion, according to the New York Post.”
The scam, which helped liberal Hollywood elites get their children admitted to the colleges of their choice, has produced charges of fraud, racketeering, conspiracy, obstruction of justice, for starters.
Remember, “Birds of a feather DO flock together.” Be mindful of who you’re “flocking” with!
