In a recent episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Lori Loughlin delivers a comedic performance that subtly references her involvement in the 2019 college admissions scandal. Playing herself, Loughlin engages in golfing antics, including cheating and claiming an illegitimate handicap permit, during her guest appearance on the show.

Loughlin, known for her role on “Full House,” became a central figure in the Varsity Blues scandal alongside her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, after admitting to fraud charges related to their daughters’ college admissions to the University of Southern California.

The episode, titled “The Gettysburg Address,” features a plot where Ted Danson enlists Larry David’s help to get Loughlin accepted into his country club, despite her scandal-tainted reputation. David, portraying his usual character, delivers a persuasive speech to the club members, drawing parallels to Abraham Lincoln’s iconic address, advocating for Loughlin’s inclusion.

However, David’s character quickly regrets his support when Loughlin disregards golf course rules and manipulates her way into a preferred tee time. Her actions on the golf course, including a dubious escape from a challenging shot, lead to humorous exchanges that echo the deceitfulness of the admissions scandal, ending with David questioning the integrity of her golf score.

Sen. Katie Britt Clarifies Her Response to State of the Union Amid Misleading Claims Controversy

Alabama GOP Sen. Katie Britt recently addressed criticisms that her rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address contained misleading information. The controversy stemmed from a narrative Britt shared about a human trafficking victim, suggesting the incident occurred under Biden’s administration.

In her rebuttal speech, Britt recounted a 2023 visit to the U.S.-Mexico border, where she met a woman who had been trafficked by cartels starting at age 12. Britt used this story to highlight what she perceives as Biden’s failure to address border issues, referring to it as a “border crisis.”

Journalist Jonathan Katz, however, pointed out in a social media post that the victim’s trafficking occurred not during Biden’s presidency but under President George W. Bush’s tenure, and it took place in Mexico, not the U.S.

Appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” Britt did not concede any error or admit to leaving a misleading impression. She emphasized that her mention of speaking with a woman trafficked at age 12 was accurate and did not specify the timing related to Biden’s presidency.

Britt reiterated her stance that Biden’s border policies have exacerbated the crisis, citing the halt of deportations and border wall construction early in his tenure. She referred to the victim, whom she did not name in her speech, as Karla Jacinto Romero, a trafficking victim who testified before Congress in 2015 about her experiences.

The White House responded to Britt’s comments, accusing her of propagating “debunked lies” to oppose bipartisan border legislation and siding with human smugglers and traffickers over national security.

Britt’s office has not responded to requests for further comment, while the White House and others continue to criticize the use of misleading narratives in political discourse, emphasizing the importance of factual accuracy and bipartisan cooperation to address border security and immigration reform.
