The Art Of The Scam

From P.T. Barnum, to H.L. Mencken's "booboisie", right up to Nixon's "silent majority" the one consistent thing about our great nation is that there really is a sucker born every minute.

And so, Trump.

And his, uh, "University".

Since, in America, money is the only true measure of all men, then naturally there are a lot of people looking to get rich quickly and by whatever means necessary.

Enter Trump and his spiel:

Listen to ME! Follow MY advice! I am THE ONE!

Of course, advice like MINE doesn't come cheap. So, do whatever you have to do to afford the bounty of MY wisdom.

If that means charging up $40-50,000 in credit card debt, well, that's a small price to pay to be like ME!

Do you want to be a loser? No, of course not. You want to be a winner like ME!

Follow ME and prosper!

Somewhere, P.T. Barnum is laughing.

Now, if El Trumpo were honest, hahahaha, he would tell them the true secret to his "fantastic" wealth:

First, inherit 200 million bucks from your dad. This is the key!

Then, also inherit his business contacts, his Mob contacts, and his political contacts.

And remember--if things get rough, you can always go bankrupt and leave somebody else holding the bag!

If you can just follow these simple rules, then you too can be a success like Donald Trump!
