I just learned that there’s something called Trump University, and it’s not a place where they teach you the subtleties of contract bridge. It’s a school that boasts this astonishing website. It’s that rare institution of higher learning that uses a .biz domain instead of boring old .edu. In addition, I’m pretty sure it’s the only educational institution in the US, and quite possibly the world, where EVERY SINGLE BIT OF REGULAR TEXT ON ITS WEBSITE IS IN CAPS.
Apparently the Attorney General of the State of New York believes that this august institution has engaged in deceptive practices. For example,
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.
I know it’s hard to believe that an institution of advanced learning with an admissions process as streamlined as this:
CALL 570-345-3128 TO ARRANGE AN INTERVIEW ASK FOR JUSTIN
and with rigorous standards like these:
NOT ALL APPLICANTS WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR TRAINING
might actually deliver less than a complete educational experience, but apparently that might be the case.
I await further evidence before coming to any conclusions of that sort, however. Meanwhile, I’m reviewing a highly attractive investment offer I’ve recently received from Nigeria.
