    We should also be suing The Donald for the eco-disastrous hair-like substance that keeps appearing on top of his head. It has, by itself, caused the ozone layer to shrink demonstrably (in horror). What IS That?

    Trump, like Kris Kardashian, is a weapon of mass distraction funded by corporations, corp media & congress– dont drink the koolaid, look behind the curtain, people!

    Exactly, JWL.

    I’m glad they’re trying to shut it down, but who’d be dumb enough to think “Trump University” was anything but another scam by a well-known snake-oil salesman in the first place?

    The charges are trumped up? How appropriate.

    Everything that Trump does is some variety of a fake. He used his name to get a tower in Baja built, then, when the project went under, he claimed that they only licensed his name. He opened massive casinos and, when they went bankrupt, the bond holders were left with the losses.

    He is a genius at branding and has turned “Trump” into a synonym for wealth and luxury. Unfortunately, only the naive, poor, and uneducated fall for his malarkey.

    I can’t want until his real estate becomes a house of cards.

    I’m no Trump fan, but come on. Trump University? If you’re naive enough to think this is a good choice for you, you probably shouldn’t be going to college in the first place.

    Trump will just yell, scream and belittle.

    His interview on GMA with George S. was EMBARRASSING…to ABC. George did everything but call Trump your highness and allowed the Donald to just rant and ramble. It was sad.

    How much longer are we going to be forced to hear about this bloated huckster? Not a rant about Towleroad, but at media in general. I don’t know why he hasn’t ‘Palined’ out by now and disappeared from our collective radar. He adds no value to our culture or country and I can’t wait until he’s a dim memory.

    I’ve said it time and time again that Trump is a huckster, a snake oil salesman, a grifter of the greatest magnitude. He’s a modern day P.T. Barnum, whether it’s politics, real estate or the media, Trump proves that there is in fact a sucker born every minute and he has no qualms about relieving them of their money. This Trump real estate course scam is as old as real estate sales itself. One of the best at it was the famous “buy real estate with nothing down guru” Carleton Sheets among hundreds of others promising get rich quick real estate deals.

    If anyone is stupid enough to get involved with Donald Trump, they deserve what they get or should I say lose. The man is a liar and a scamster par excellence.

    Didn’t they read the fine print?

    A lot of people lose their day jobs and feel forced to go into real estate, and then they go to training seminars on how to sell real estate. Most of it is straightforward, but some think that anything by Trump will give them an edge. He used to sell books with essentially the same self-help message for those entering real estate, but obviously that wasn’t earning enough moolah for him. Were the people who bought his books defrauded? Well, for $8, yes, but not $30K, so I guess there’s a substantial difference. However, many college degrees are equally unsubstantial.
