First things first: Yes, Trump University is a real thing. Donald Trump started his own online education company to make even more money teaching people how to "get rich" for fees of anywhere between $5,000 to $35,000 per course. If you didn't hate Donald Trump before now, this should do it.

That said, let's add the whopping cherry on top: According to the New York Times, Trump is being sued for $40 million by the New York State attorney for alleged fraud in connection with Trump University. Long story short, apparently it's a fraud, and everyone who attended couldn't land one real estate deal after 'graduating' the programs. Shocking news, because the name Trump University DEFINITELY sounds like one belong to a legit institution.

From the article:


Sooooo, apparently, offering a $35,000 course in, like, real estate without a license made of GOLD isn't cool in the state of New York. Duly noted.
