The Donald: still unaccredited

Posted under: fluff, students, wankers

Via Inside Higher Ed, we learn that “Trump University,” the “Donald Trump creation that offers courses for those who want to emulate the real estate guru, has been ordered by New York State officials to stop calling itself a university.”  (Full story here:  “‘Use of the word ‘university’ by your corporation is misleading and violates New York Education Law and the Rules of the Board of Regents,’ wrote Deputy Commissioner for Higher Education Joseph Frey.”)

Well, you can see why he thought it was OK to call his program a “university.”  After all, he probably calls that stuff on his head “hair.”

    I’m sure he meant it in the original medieval sense of universitas vestras, or “all youse guys together.” Right?

    Right. I’m sure that’s exactly what he meant to suggest!

    So, you can get a degree in inheriting your wealth and driving casinos…freaking casinos, which can’t fail, statistically!…into the ground?

    Sign.

    But, Bing: the house always wins, unless it overinvests in real estate.

    Anybody who ever took the infamous “Regents” exams knows you don’t mess around with the Regents. One bad day can ruin your whole life (as Gen. Burgoyne discovered).

    Trump is such a fucking douchebag and a blight on everything he touches, that anything to fucking annoy him is a net positive for the universe.
