Sorry, Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman; you have failed to make the grade as far as Jim Carrey is concerned.Actor-artist Carrey, who routinely tackles politics with his growing body of work, turned his talents to the college admissions case that recently put “Full House” star Loughlin and “Desperate Housewives” actress Huffman in a spotlight they no doubt would prefer not to be in.In his latest work, Carrey opined that Loughlin and Huffman aren’t the only ones who deserve an F over the matter.Also Read: Jim Carrey Takes Trump Presidency to 'Extinction Level' in Latest Political Cartoon (Photo)“It’s not only Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman and their kids, but ALL cheaters who will eventually receive a failing grade,” Carrey wrote of his latest piece.Loughlin and Huffman, along with dozens of others, were charged earlier this month with paying bribes of up to $6 million to get their children into top universities like Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and USC, according to charging documents.
