Two years ago, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office started investigating a number of for-profit colleges, suspecting they were exaggerating the ability of their graduates to get jobs, downplaying the cost of attendance, and over-hyping the generally crappy quality of their instruction. Last week, the A.G.'s office got a $10.25 million settlement out of one of those schools, an august learning institution called Career Education Corporation. We thought the next target on the AG's list would likely be Trump University, now called Trump Entrepreneur Initiative, which is where you go to learn the secrets of business from a man who's filed for bankruptcy four times.More »
Why did failing A.G. Eric Schneiderman, after years of looking, file his pathetic lawsuit on a SATURDAY afternoon (unheard of)? No case!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 25, 2013
The past couple years have not been kind to Career Education Corporation. The Illinois-based for-profit school is the fourth-largest in the nation; it operates hundreds of campuses across 23 states and 5 countries , and currently serves about 75,000 students. It also appears, if we can use a technical term, to be kind of bullshit. New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced yesterday that CEC would pay a $10.25 million settlement , after a two-year investigation found that the school had wildly exaggerated its job placement rates to lure in new students.
The face of quality, non-bullshit education.
At CPAC (that's "Conservative Political Action Conference" for those of you who don't trust the liberal bias of acronyms) this morning, Donald Trump told the gathered audience of Email chain letter–forwarders that "Our Country is in very, very serious trouble." Luckily, Trump let everyone know exactly what is wrong with America--and also what is right. If you don't have time to watch the video below, we've condensed his insights into a potent stew, much like Trump Cologne (available at Macy's).
As the New York Times faces budget cutbacks and new digital media threats, talks of an enormous buyout have risen a good deal in media circles. And rumor has it that the Donald has been recently hosting meetings on ways to become its new owner. It's safe to say that the Sulzberger family would never even imagine giving the reigns over to Trump, especially after he crudely criticized columnist Gail Collins.
So yeah, no.
Cue his advice from The Apprentice for further research.
So on Monday, New York City's biggest attention whore, Donald Trump, appeared on
He makes his announcement today on Twitter at noon. Shortly thereafter, we will hit the unfollow button. the single worst television show of any kind in the whole fucking world Fox News' Fox & Friends and told Doocy et al that he had found "something very, very big" about President Obama, something with the power to maybe even decimate the president's campaign, to end the president's political career, and that he'd let us know today around noon.
Trump, flawed as he is, is undeniably good at keeping himself in the news without actually doing anything newsworthy, so like the beaten pups that we media outlets are, we spent Monday morning on wondering what this wigged kumquat of a man had in store for us.
This announcement could be something and/or nothing at all, but much of the media is playing ball. For something to be as big as Trump claims, it has to be a deal breaker, both politically and personally. There are a couple theories going around. Maybe Trump found evidence that this man is indeed from Kenya, even though we've already seen the president's birth certificate many times now. Maybe Obama's a secret Muslim (read: terrorist), even though the president is baptized, goes to a Protestant church and has spent the last three and a half years systematically hunting and remotely butchering the absolute shit out of Muslims.More »
Earlier this week, Donald Trump promised that his acts of scumbaggery towards Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington were just getting started. Today, the world's trashiest billionaire made good on his promise.
On Tuesday -- in fine 13-year-old girl fashion -- Trump took to Twitter to call Huffington ugly. He went on to "tweet" that "I fully understand why her husband left her for a man -- he made a good decision."
Now, he claims he intentionally raised rent to $100,000 at one of his apartment buildings to keep her from moving in.
|This guy has the gall to call someone "unattractive."|
