$40 million taken

Five thousand students paid up to $35,000 to get trained by Trump in how to get rich through real estate.

Instead, they got to have their picture taken in front a life-sized picture of him.

You could say these people were idiots to trust this overblown moron, but you can also say that organizations that promise people "riches through education" should not make exaggerated or false promises.

According to the lawsuit, Trump didn't have even a single instructor at the school and had not created the course when he he advertised "a handpicked faculty and curriculum."

Trump is nothing if not a good litigator. That and making a spectacle of himself seem to be his only skills. It will be interesting to see where this leads.

When customers tried a class action lawsuit, he bloodied them with legal retaliation.

What does the New York AG say about the case?

"Trump University engaged in deception at every stage of consumers' advancement through costly programs and caused real financial harm...with Donald Trump's knowledge and participation."
