I don't believe Trump went to the Wharton School of Business. I want to see his transcripts.

The man cannot complete a sentence. He cannot finish a complete thought. He changes direction in the middle of his own argument without having been interrupted. According to Trump, you have to be really, really smart to get into the Wharton School of Business. I don't think Trump is very, very smart. I want to see his transcripts. I want to see what kind of grades he got.

1. Real estate moguls aren't necessarily geniuses?

Respectfully to real estate moguls of the world, Trump had a successful business handed to him, and managed to keep it going and make money. And lose that money. And make it back. And so forth.

Making a lot of money does not make someone a genius. Doesn't mean a person has a lot of wisdom about the world.

Republicans do not seem to see it this way. They see education as valid only to the extent it prepares people to make money. They see wealth as a sign of legitimacy, and the basis for entitlement to leadership and influence.

They also like forceful personalities and belligerence.

Trump's got all those bases covered.

When he starts having to answer questions that require any kind of knowledge or understanding about the larger world, he's going to have problems.

2. Problems that he'll try solving by upgrading his netflix subscription...

Or whatever cable/steaming service he uses to get his 'shows' that he uses for military advice.

In all honesty, if he's looking for a show to watch I'd recommend Reading Rainbow. Might inspire him to pick up a book or two.

9. Some of us don't realize -- Trump is a big TV star.


He seems to be succeeding by acting like one. No surprise if he's taking his "ideas" from entertainment as well.

10. Also helps to be ruthless and willing to step on anyone to achieve that success.

Just witness his campaign and the way he insults his opponents. Juvenile, ego-centric remarks against his opponents rather than an honest discussion of the issues. This man is used to bullying his way towards his goals and will happily take down his own party to get what he wants. Thankfully, he is not on our team.

11. Republicans have nurtured that attitude for years.


Their base bought it, and now Trump is showing them just how much of a clueless loudmouth you can be to qualify.

3. It's intentional. To appeal to complete morons

 

A coherent thought would scare and infuriate Trump level morons. All they want is "Murica fuck yeah" level discourse. He knows this and he does it intentionally.

6. I'm pretty sure most business programs

Do cover the bankruptcy chapters and restructuring, under their business law curriculum.

5. Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!!!! (old news)

 

"Among other things, Trump has allowed the media to report for years that he graduated first in his class at Wharton, despite strong evidence that this is not true and indications that he was, in fact, an undistinguished student...

Trump did not go to Whartonís prestigious MBA program. Rather, he received an undergraduate degree offered by Wharton to University of Pennsylvania students. And Trump didnít attend Wharton for a full four years. Instead, he transferred there after spending his first two undergraduate years at Fordham, the Jesuit university in the Bronx."

http://www.salon.com/2011/05/03/donald_trump_wharton/


This is old news, and yet, the media lets him get away with it unchallenged.

8. I graduated from Wharton.

Check my profile in the "Welcome" section when I first signed up. I got a full ride. There's no one else on this site of whom I am aware who attended Wharton. And yes, Trump went there.

And also, yes, you have to be really, really smart to attend, much less obtain a degree. I went on and obtained my MBA there. You know what a Harvard student and a Wharton student have in common? We both were accepted into Harvard.

12. WADR,

Enronís management consultant was McKinsey, and McKinsey was as much a prisoner of the talent myth as its clients were. In 1998, Enron hired ten Wharton M.B.A.s; that same year, McKinsey hired forty. In 1999, Enron hired twelve from Wharton; McKinsey hired sixty-one.

THE TALENT MYTH

And Jeff Skilling had an MBA from Harvard Business School.

13. And W allegedly has a Harvard MBA

Never saw that transcript.

Although he doesn't have the common sense with his mouth that God gave a snail, I believe he went to Wharton before I believe W completed the requirements for a Harvard MBA.

15. Honestly this is not necessary.

 

The GOP said that president Obama didn't go to school either. Went so far as talk to students who were there at the time and nobody knew him. Must we really follow GOP tactics?

16. The difference is

Obama was a con law teacher at Harvard Law School. We also know from Karl Rove said W had to do community service in Houston for cocaine possession. And we know W was AWOL on the Guard. So which is more credible? Obama and or Bush?
