Before the last legal nightmare, my life was boring. Now? It’s beyond boring. I dare not associate with any of my old “friends” for fear I’ll catch another promotion charge. Thus, my entire interaction with other humans comes via volunteering – which I only do part time (though virtually every day) – and (sorry to say) not with people I find particularly lively. And so, if I haven’t mentioned it before, I’m bored to death.
While I pay for cable and most of the premium channels, I find it impossible to fill my day with worthy entertainment. And so…I read…and then I nap…and then I read…and then I nap…and then oh forget it. You know what’s next.
To the point. It took but one day to start and finish a 240 page piece of fluff titled “Trump U,” an insider tell-all penned by a Trump employee who claims to be one of the very few people in the organization who endeavored to give the “students” what they paid for. What was that guy thinking?
The particulars of this man’s accusations and the lawyers’ claim in the class action suit which eventually cost the president $25 million aren’t worth mentioning here. Suffice it to say that it would appear the organization’s priority lay in generating revenue rather than educating its subscribers.
What boggles my mind is that anybody would fall for the snake oil come-on in the first place – especially considering the “school’s” front man. I pose this question: Would you enter into a deal with Donald Trump and expect anything but to be manipulated and hustled? I sure wouldn’t.
In several newspapers, Trump U advertised “Learn From the Master”…and invited all viewers to come to a free introductory seminar. This self-described “master” has actually filed for bankruptcy on at least four (and some say six) different occasions. Does that sound like somebody you want to take a course in accumulating wealth from? Maybe if you’re an aspiring con man!
And consider this: Ya know what happens when you go bankrupt? That’s right. You fuck people out of money you owe them. And you do it legally! Wanna know what course I’d sign up for if Trump was the figurehead? How To Hustle Suckers and Fuck Them For Their Money 101. That is the only avenue that would make any sense. And given I don’t like to steal from people, I simply wouldn’t have any use for any knowledge Trump might offer.
Ya know…if I were the sleaziest/slimiest/most drug-addicted flatbacker in all of New York…and Donald Trump offered me $10,000 for a blow job, I’d turn him down. And ya know why? Because I know I’d spend the next 10 years in the shower trying to wash the shame off my body and soul. Yet, a preposterous number of Americans actually fall for his sales pitch. Fucking amazing!
