    These people attended a free seminar where they were sold a paid seminar. At the paid seminar they were sold a more expensive seminar.
    At the one that cost the most, $35,000, they were told they could have their picture taken with Trump. Turned out it was a cardboard cutout.
    I know he's probably broke already but I hope this is the end of him.

    Yeah, I hope he gets what's coming to him.

    Those idiots deserved to lose their money. I love bad things happening to Donald Trump, but I can't get fired up about this case.

    Yeah, I'm not sure you can have huge expectations from a three day seminar. If you don't understand that it's a little different than a 4-year "University", then I don't have a ton of sympathy for you.

    This story is all kinds of funny.

    From the filing: "Instead of a personal appearance from Donald Trump as some consumers were led to expect, some participants got their photographs taken with a life-size photo of Mr. Trump."

    But when you get past the comedy value of this. .... seriously, wtf is the attorney general doing anywhere near this?

    Let's say Trump is defrauding people. Selling something and then not delivering it. Just like any other fraudulent transaction, those people have the right to bring civil action against him. The state AG shouldn't be involved. The people who bought his bullshit entered a freely entered contract -- between a bunch of idiots and Donald Trump. That is where it should begin and end. If they feel he broke that contract, THEY can sue civilly.

    The funny thing is - Trump will have to admit that he's not involved with the program at all and sold his name to it (or more likely) got a cut of the profits. he can get out of it - but he won't look good having to admit why his isn't responsible.

    That's what folks who license their name do. How or why is that embarrassing?
