You pays your money and you takes your chances. Anyone stupid enough to fall for the "Trump University" scam wouldn't have done any better at Harvard.

Not that this is sufficient, as it is merely deflection, but Bill Clinton has his own corrupt college for profit scheme. I think the GOP has laid low on this story as it brings up the Trump U, but if the Dems bring up Trump U more and more, I think the GOP brings up this one a bit.

I am resigned to this election being 2 corrupt liars facing off.

Yep. Could be interesting though. Will probably be the nastiest election in history.

But promising personal involvement and the selection of instructors who are experts in their field and supplying neither is what's known to reasonably sane people as an outright scam

I guess in your view Bernie Madoff shouldn't be in jail?

In the said event of a President Trump, Donny'd probably show some honor among con-men and pardon him, eh?

If any of the chumps can prove fraud and collect a nice payday that's fine with me. If not then they at least learn a valuable lesson: be skeptical. Assume everything is a fraud until proved otherwise.

Talking Trump University

B-b-but Drumpf said it was operated by "the best people in the world!"

Seems I've heard him use that phrase a few times recently, too.
