  • ‘I Went To The Best Colleges’: Trump BUSTED Lying About Non-Existent Business Degree From Wharton

    Donald Trump, Politics

    Recently in an attempt to defend his mental fitness to be president, Donald Trump told a reporter during a presser at Camp David: “I went to the best colleges… came out, made billions and billions of dollars, became one of the top business people…”

    In the past, Trump’s bragged about attending the Wharton School of Finance, a school with the reputation of having one of the best MBA programs in the world. However, it turns out that Trump’s boasts of academic exceptionalism may be a tiny bit exaggerated. In 2016, the AP reported that then-candidate Trump never received an MBA from Wharton. In fact, his undergraduate degree was a bachelor of science in economics which is not considered a business degree.

    Vanity Fair’s Kurt Eichenwald recently resurrected Trump’s Wharton con when the president once again bragged about going to “the best colleges…” Eichenwald pointed out that while Trump did attend Wharton, he “never made dean’s list,” despite his claims of graduating first in his class.

    The writer said that Trump “has been tricking people” for years concerning his academic accomplishments, purposely misleading people into believing that he has an MBA for one of “the most highly respected” business programs in the U.S.

    “Trump has no MBA,” Eichenwald tweeted. “He can’t read a balance sheet.”

    Meanwhile, Trump’s unstable behavior continues to be of grave concern within the White House, so much so that a mass departure of West Wing staffers, as well as a few top administration Cabinet members, are expected to take place within the upcoming months.

    As New Century Times wrote in January:

    “This exodus of staff is due to a complete breakdown of morale, as well as disgust for how Trump runs the White House. Many of Trump’s staffers, such as former Goldman Sachs executive Gary Cohn, (who is in charge of Trump’s National Economic Council), are disappointed in Trump. Cohn even once described Trump as ‘an idiot surrounded by clowns.’ In Michael Wolff’s anti-Trump tell-all book, Fire and Fury: Inside The Trump White House, Cohn said:

    ‘The reason so few jobs have been filled is that they only accept people who pass ridiculous purity tests, even for midlevel policy-making jobs where the people will never see the light of day. I am in a constant state of shock and horror.'”

    Trump’s compulsive lying about everything under the sun manages to reinforce the worst prejudices people have about the American political system. His ignorant and destructive behavior continues to erode the credibility of the constitutional government and institutions upon which America was built.

    I'm originally from Louisiana, just outside of New Orleans; now living North Texas. I'm a reformed "South Park Conservative" who has grown passionate about progressive issues like social justice, education, criminal justice reform, gun control, ending the war on drugs, and economic inequality. I believe America's a stronger nation when we come together as one to find a solution and humble ourselves enough to consider other points of view from our neighbors around the world. I don't believe in American exceptionalism, but I do believe America can only be an exceptional place as long as we can be brutally honest about its strengths and weaknesses.
