Tomi Lahren is ripping into Ivy League schools for accepting coronavirus relief funds. During her most recent Final Thoughts segment, the FOX Nation host ripped into the universities with large endowments that are taking money.
“One Ivy League school with a $40 billion endowment – that’s billion with a ‘B’ – is set to cash in on nearly $9 million in federal taxpayer-funded relief,” said Lahren, “You don’t have to have a Harvard degree to know something doesn’t quite add up there.
“Times are tough for most Americans and most businesses. However, times don’t appear to be that tough for Harvard University, which, according to its own annual financial report, celebrated its sixth budget surplus in June 2019, a budget surplus of dang-near $300 million dollars. In fact, Harvard’s endowment has a value of nearly $41 billion dollars, an increase from the prior fiscal year because damn, I guess academic liberal indoctrination is pretty dang profitable.
“That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve heard since I found out our tax dollars are also going to fund the freakin’ Kennedy Center to the tune of $25 million bucks.”

The funds had been allocated as part of the CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.
Ya know I am always a little wary of the government stepping in to prop up any institution but this is really something else! https://t.co/e7Pe59hDbv

The coronavirus mainly comes from animals and a majority of those who were infected early either worked at or frequently visited the Huanan seafood wholesale market in Wuhan, according to The Guardian. The virus is similar to Severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) and Middle Eastern respiratory syndrome (Mers).
The Wuhan coronavirus is transmitted from person to person through “droplet transmission.” That means an infected person can pass the virus by sneezing or coughing on another person as well as by direct contact.
While a majority of the cases have been detected in the United States and China — with more than 42,900 deaths in the United States — it has now reached many countries around the world. It has also been confirmed in Italy, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and many other eastern countries.
