Yes, Trump University Was a Massive Scam

The free seminars were the first step in a bait and switch to induce prospective students to enroll in increasingly expensive seminars starting with the three-day $1495 seminar and ultimately one of respondents’ advanced seminars such as the “Gold Elite” program costing $35,000.

At the “free” 90-minute introductory seminars to which Trump University advertisements and solicitations invited prospective students, Trump University instructors engaged in a methodical, systematic series of misrepresentations designed to convince students to sign up for the Trump University three-day seminar at a cost of $1495.

The Atlantic, which got hold of a 41-page “Private & Confidential” playbook from Trump U, has attested to the same:

The playbook says almost nothing about the guest speaker presentations, the ostensible reason why people showed up to the seminar in the first place. Instead, the playbook focuses on the seminars’ real purpose: to browbeat attendees into purchasing expensive Trump University course packages.

He sued students who gave bad reviews for the seminar, and lost.

To be fair I don't have time to read the article right now but it apppears TU could have been the beginnings of another cult.  Maybe next he'll change his name to L. Donald and found the new religion of Trumpology, assuming he doesn't succeed in his bid for dictator.

I can see why Holy Moly might be a Trump fan.  They are very much alike, egomaniacs who have never really amounted to anything other than spinning their failures as "success" to an unwitting audience to sell false images of themselves for profit under the guise of some "reality" show that is most obviously staged to those of us who are paying attention.  Trump "fires" people, while Stefbots continue to vote the unfaithful off the FDR island.
