Networks blow off alleged Trump scandals
Growing claims of Donald Trump scandals are being blown off by many in the mainstream media. MSNBC on Wednesday made fun of claims by former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Romney, who some say is leading the fighting against Trump for the GOP establishment, said the Republican leader may be hiding some bombshells in taxes he has so refused to release.
MSNBC’s panel said Romney had no proof and was just blowing smoke.
"Mitt Romney, who totally blew an election that should have been won and whose tax returns made him look like a fool, is now playing tough guy,” Trump tweeted. It seemed as though the Donald and MSNBC were on the same page.
At the same time, news of allegations that Trump created a phony university to make himself richer are only finally getting some mention. That is because a tentative court date has been set and Trump may have to take time off from the campaign pundits say he has already won to testify about alleged fraud multiple lawsuits.
Certainly his supporters do not care about the many rude and racist remarks Trump has made. According to Trump he could shoot someone on 5th Ave. and no one would care.
Some in his party care because they believe Trump is not a conservative and will not support those who are if elected.
The university story just won’t go away, years later.
The Washington Post reported: "Never
licensed as a school, Trump University was in reality a series of real estate workshops in hotel ballrooms around the country, not unlike many other for-profit self-help or motivational seminars. Though short-lived, it remains a thorn in Trump’s side nearly five years after its operations ceased: In three pending lawsuits, including one in which the New York attorney general is seeking $40 million in restitution, former students allege that the enterprise bilked them out of their money with misleading advertisements.
“Instead of a fast route to easy money, these Trump University students say they found generic seminars led by salesmen who pressured them to invest more cash in additional courses. The students say they didn’t learn Trump’s secrets and never received the one-on-one guidance they expected.”
The strangest thing about Romney’s allegations is that he ruled in the possibility that the question is not whether Trump paid his fair share of taxes. Romney said we may find Trump is not as rich as he says he is, which might explain why he uses every trick in the book to get free TV pay rather than pay for time.
