Donald Trump looked like a deer in headlights on Election Night and for the days that followed his unexpected win. Along with his new found responsibilities as the leader of the free world, he has also had court cases hanging over his head. After scaring the victim in his child rape case into dropping the suit against him, Trump finally decided on Friday to settle the Trump University case for $25 million.
Naturally, Trump had to go on Twitter and whine to the world. Looks like poor Donald just doesn’t have the time to fight a losing battle in court now that he has to staff the West Wing
with the KKK.
The ONLY bad thing about winning the Presidency is that I did not have the time to go through a long but winning trial on Trump U. Too bad!

Trump has insisted that he would never settle a lawsuit (even though he has done so more than once) and has taken great pleasure in denigrating others for settling cases out of court. Just a few months ago, Trump was on Twitter screaming about how easy it was going to be to win the “phony lawsuit” aginst his bullsh*t university.
The phony lawsuit against Trump U could have been easily settled by me but I want to go to court. 98% approval rating by students. Easy win

Just a few weeks earlier, Trump tweeted that everybody thought his fake school was just great and declared that because of his “principles,” he would never agree to settle the case.
Trump University has a 98% approval rating. I could have settled but won’t out of principle!

So much for Mr. Donald’s principles, huh?
