Trump Gets Sued for Grifting

Trump University?

New York’s attorney general sued Donald Trump for $40 million Saturday, saying the real estate mogul helped run a phony “Trump University” that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars, and even failed to deliver promised apprenticeships.

Trump shot back that the Democrat’s lawsuit is false and politically motivated.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says many of the 5,000 students who paid up to $35,000 thought they would at least meet Trump but instead all they got was their picture taken in front of a life-size picture of “The Apprentice” TV star.

“Trump University engaged in deception at every stage of consumers’ advancement through costly programs and caused real financial harm,” Schneiderman said. “Trump University, with Donald Trump’s knowledge and participation, relied on Trump’s name recognition and celebrity status to take advantage of consumers who believed in the Trump brand.”

Is there any difference between standing next to Donald Trump and standing next to a cutout of Donald Trump? Probably not. In both instances, you’d be standing next to a thin veneer lacking both soul and intellect.

Also, anyone willing to pay thousands to get to pose for a picture with Trump and/or to receive a diploma from Trump U. almost deserves to get shafted by a grifter with clown hair.

    Yeah!?

  2. redState girl says:

    You’re naive if you don’t think there’s political motive behind this lawsuit. Obama has never been shy about pushing his weight around.

  3. Charlie Sommers says:

    Welcome back redState girl, we needed a little comic relief here on Mario’s website. Please tell us in what ingenious way you have connected the attorney general of the state of New York and his lawsuit to the POTUS. Also I would like to hear about how Mr. Obama has thrown his weight around. I have seen more evidence of him having made too many concessions to the T-party members of the house who seem to think their main job is to try to counter any productive things he wants to do. I would wager that if Barrack made the statement that breathing was a good idea they would all hold their breath.

    I understand your point, but I still feel sort of sorry for them. Its not as if Trump really needed the money in the first place.. And thats why I have no sympathy for him. Rich guy like him praying upon joe-average folks. Trump is truly a scumbag in my book. And I hope students get all their money back and some.

  5. Christophe B. says:

    Ya, self inflicted wounds, like the idiots in the south who keep voting against their own interests.

  6. redState girl says:

    If you read the story, Charlie, you’d know that the attorney general of NY met with Obama the night before he filed the lawsuit. If liberals like you weren’t so blinded by your messiah idolization, you’d be able to put 2 and 2 together and understand that Obama is trying to silence his critics in any way he can. Obama is not the man you think he is. Time to wake up before this country is completely destroyed.

  7. Arthur L. says:

    You’re right, redstate girl. The President is not the man you think he is. How I wish that you and others like you had the awareness to understand the damage you’re doing to our country. Enough please. Can you not for once try to look at the whole picture and not instantly assume that everything you hear from the conservative media is necessarily true?

    and “The Donald” strikes back…in true bully (you know which party I mean) fashion:

    Hi redState…where you been? Please supply a link to “the story”…we’d all like to see just how conniving our President is…and WHO made the connection.

  9. redState girl says:

    “Trump found it highly suspicious that [New York AG Eric] Schneiderman met with Obama in Syracuse on Thursday and then filed the lawsuit on Saturday. “This guy is a political hack looking to get publicity,” Trump said. “By the way, he meets with President Obama on Thursday evening in Syracuse. On Saturday at 1:00 he files a suit.”

    The truth hurts, doesn’t it?

  10. Charlie Sommers says:

    Dear redState girl,

    Read the comments on the link you posted above. They explain rather well why the majority of Americans consider the Donald a Loony Tune. Don’t forget that Obama was elected by a majority of thinking Americans and not those who’s forte is conspiracy theories.

  11. Carol says:

    “Truth”? show me…
    Just some blowhard going on the offense…or is that offensive?

  12. john says:

    redState girl aka Liz Cheney? yes the truth hurts doesn’t THE DONALD IS FLUCKED That’s 40 million of the how many millions? he made firing people on TV. Donald i have to say it.. “YOU’RE FIRED” …and hopefully this lawsuit will shut up his disrespectful, evil, lowlife,paranoid, lying face. Find another Spotlight Trump, and pray you don’t get time in a Federal prison! They don’t do hair there! lol

  13. Cheryl says:

    No, sadly enough, redstate just wants to be Liz Cheney. She is one of the ones voting against their own interest in order to be “in the club” with Liz and company. What she doesn’t understand is that they view her as a means of keeping everything they have screwed people over for – while at the same time, viewing her with utter contempt. I have read the book by Thomas Frank – and I still don’t get the mindset.

  14. E.A. Blair says:

    Schneiderman met with Obama in Syracuse on Thursday and then filed the lawsuit on Saturday

    It takes more than two days to file and prepare a lawsuit like this. Someone send poor redState girl a fresh roll of tinfoil.

  15. E.A. Blair says:

    john & Cheryl:

    Liz Cheney needs to change her name. Elizabeth is derived from a Hebrew phrase that means “god is satisfied”. She needs to change it to something that means “other priorities” or, better still, “Daddy’s little draft exemption”.
