Mike Rowe’s Response To One Angry Mother Who’s Son Was Applying for the ‘Rowe’ Scholarship Goes Viral

Mike Rowe has given sound pretty sound advice to the American people over the years. Advice that those on that hard left having trouble accepting.

Work hard, do right, all the things that helped make America great. It’s only natural that some brainwashed yahoo would take issue with such wise words.

As Written and Reported By Chris Enloe for The Blaze:

Mike Rowe is awarding more than a half million dollars in scholarship money this year to students earning degrees in skilled trades. But there’s just one caveat: lazy, self-entitled students need not apply.

With eloquence and grace, as he always does.

He began his lengthy response by explaining Segal isn’t the first parent to take issue with the pledge.

“Over the years, it’s been my sad duty to inform lots of angry parents that this particular pile of free money might not be for them, or for their children…….
