Billionaire Robert F. Smith is paying off the student loans of every 2019 Morehouse grad..

Sorry, I know this is ridiculously off topic. To my thinking this is a great example for other billionaires though. What a leg up for people coming into the work place to not be saddled to a huge debt before having a chance to establish themselves. I have nieces and nephews who would have greatly benefitted from having a benefactor like Smith.

    Very nice and it’s nice too see old school philanthropy from the wealthy.

    I think the Donald is doing the same for all the grads of Trump University

    He should be free to do this and it is a very generous and kind act.

    One thing does bother me though. I left college debt free because of working a couple of jobs and living with parents. I didn’t want the debt hanging over my head. I graduated with a couple of guys that were awful with money and had about 40-60k in student loans when we graduated. They didn’t pay for much school while in and partied pretty hard (not saying everyone does). If someone did it the “right” way and sacrificed all that time and discipline paying for school I’d have a bit of an empty feeling at that point that everyone was turned into “equals”. It would be more “fair” (since that’s what he’s trying to accomplish) for him to give the average owed amount to everyone.

    Kasey. ''Brokeahontas'' AKA Senator Elisabeth Warren went to George Washington University then got her law degree from Rutgers. Being she was a bankruptcy lawyer it seems likely she ran into Trump more than a few times since his specialty ( other than fraud) is going bankrupt to dodge his bills.

  • Raiderbeater1Raiderbeater1 Posts: 3,797 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    regardless if you like her she did pretty much lie pretty boldly. It wasn’t really misinterpreted.

  • WCDawgWCDawg Posts: 17,293 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Actually Warren annoys me and she's too liberal to get my vote for POTUS. That said, a harmless white lie vs Trump's literally thousands of brazen lies, many of them regarding important matters.

  • Raiderbeater1Raiderbeater1 Posts: 3,797 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    “Literally thousands”.

    I don’t love the man but why are her lies “white”? Honestly.

  • WCDawgWCDawg Posts: 17,293 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    ''Lies'' other than the claim to be part native American what lies has she told ?

    Yes, Trump has literally told thousands of public lies since being elected. There is an actual count that was north of 6000 the last I saw.

    Like him or not, Trump is a pathological liar.

  • KaseyKasey Posts: 18,641 mod

    hey @WCDawg

    brokeahontas is my new name for Trump after those tax returns came back

  • WCDawgWCDawg Posts: 17,293 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Oh, sorry I missed that Kasey. I recall reading that now.
