While wingnuts and the most idiotic BernieBros are waiting to see if the FBI indicts Hillary Clinton for not understanding how email works, the other presumptive nominee is an actual defendant in an ongoing civil suit. Dare we hope that the Trump University scam will start to garner media coverage equivalent to Emailghazi?
I’ve thought not since the Beltway media has thus far been complicit in normalizing outrageous behavior by Trump — what’s a civil suit for fraud between friends? But that was before Trump started whining about the Indiana-born “Mexican” judge who is handling the case:
A federal judge is ordering the release of Trump University internal documents in a class-action lawsuit against the now-defunct real estate school owned by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump…
The Post reported that [U.S. District Judge Gonzalo] Curiel’s order to release an estimated 1,000 pages of documents cites heightened public interest in Trump and that he had “placed the integrity of these court proceedings at issue.”
We can safely assume Trump won’t draw the obvious lesson from the judge’s order, which is “shut your goddamned pie-hole.” And that’s okay; please proceed, bag of pumpkin-spiced dicks.
But will the DC press corps comb through the tawdry details of that document dump as methodically as they’ve parsed every boring-ass comment, report, speculation and excerpt pertaining to Secretary Clinton’s email? Here’s hoping.
