Actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli were included in the dozens of people caught up in the college admissions cheating scandal. The privileged couple felt entitled enough to use their wealth to bribe individuals to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, into elite universities. As it happens, Mossimo is a staunch Trump supporter who has raged against “people who don’t carry their own weight,” according to Uproxx who cited actor Tom Arnold.
It was just weeks before the college bribery scandal broke that Giannulli was at a Hollywood party in a drunken state bragging about his support for Donald Trump and how people should be “carrying their own weight.”
“Couple wks ago I got into it with 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,’” Arnold, an outspoken Trump critic tweeted earlier this week. “He embarrassed Scandal Mom again.”

You don’t have to take Arnold’s word for it. Page Six got in touch with another source who was allegedly in attendance at the same Hollywood party and that individual backed up Arnold’s account of the events. “Mossimo was talking about how he agrees with Trump, and that people need to carry their own weight,” the source said. “He was saying there’s a lot of ‘takers’ out there and entitled people.”
Did you get that? The man who raged against “takers” and “entitled people” took and felt entitled. Irony is dead. How very Trumpian of him.
Loughlin is losing acting gigs over the scandal. Meanwhile, Sephora ended its relationship with Loughlin’s daughter, Olivia Jade, after it was revealed that the high-power couple’s daughter was admitted to the University of Southern California as a member of the crew team after her parents allegedly paid $500,000 in bribes.
Weird. This appears to be Gianulli’s G/FORE brand hat being sold at the online Trump Store.
