Given the mixed success of Donald Trump’s various businesses, it’s not unreasonable to wonder what actually sunk in while he was at Wharton. But David Axelrod might not be in the best position to wonder. At least not aloud.
Amid reports that the Trump administration would be scrapping Obama-era guidance that urged schools and colleges to consider race in the admissions process, Axelrod tweeted this:
I wonder what “affirmative action” facilitated @realDonaldTrump admission to Penn? It would be interesting to see his scores and grades, which, like his tax returns, we never will. What are the odds the old man clouted him in? Hint:⬆️

That’s nice, David, but:
How about Obama’s grades? https://t.co/ixOig5Kkyt

That's a remarkable thing to say, given we never saw @BarackObama's grades…

It would be just as interesting to see Obama’s scores and grades from Occidental and Columbia.

As soon as we see Obama's grades

How did Obama get in? What were his grades like?
Are you even curious?

I wondered for years about President Obama's scores and grades, which somehow were never released, Why was that, Mr. Axelrod?
