LIZ PEEK (FOXNEWS.COM COLUMNIST): I think what's so offensive about this is first of all, one of the tragedies is the kids. The kids are being basically taught from their parents that this is the way to get ahead in life, to cheat and steal. Secondly, already we have Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez out there saying oh, just another example about how the wealthy and powerful in our country are not playing on the same field as everybody else.

STUART VARNEY (HOST): She's chimed into this? 

PEEK: She already has.

VARNEY: Of course.

PEEK: And this is going to become another cudgel with basically beating up successful Americans.
