State Of New York Files Lawsuit Against 'Trump University'
The media whore and birther hero is now facing a serious challenge coming from his own state. The Attorney General of New York has announced a $40 million lawsuit against The Don.
Looks like the king of birthers is going to be busy answering some questions:
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. 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.” A spokeswoman for Trump did not immediately return a request for comment Saturday.
Trump already has a website up defending himself and painting this as some sort of partisan witchhunt. Given Trump’s love of the camera and his own voice, we can be sure he’ll be out there echoing that even louder in the coming days.
