Yet Another Post on the Donald Trump Seminar Infomercial

I’ve already raised the question of why a billionaire would do a real estate seminar infomercial at all, and I’ve discussed Trump getting bleeped in his own infomercial. But the more I see the Trump infomercial the more things I see in it that I want to discuss.

The Trump seminar being advertised supposedly presents general info on “wealth building.” Trump mainly discusses real estate as a way to wealth. However, he also spends quite a bit of time in this infomercial discussing how people can get money from the government. So not only is Trump trying to be the next Tom Vu but he is also attempting to be the next Matthew Lesko!

At one point the hostess of the infomercial asks Trump for some “words of wisdom” for those who are going to attend. Trump gives us this:

It’s a great place to meet people. And they’re sort of like you: they’re smart, they’re intelligent, in some cases they’re beautiful or good looking. But you’re going to meet a lot of people at the institute and the seminar that are really spectacular people, that are ambitious people.

In some cases they’re beautiful or good looking?? I think I may have found the answer as to why the billionaire spends his time at these cheesy real estate investing events. (Listen to the audio here: trump_good_looking.MP3)

And in case you hadn’t guessed already, the hostess on this infomercial is an attractive female. So when Trump says “they’re sort of like you: they’re smart, they’re intelligent” he is in fact flirting/hitting on her. So it appears The Donald—who owns the Miss Universe pagent, Miss USA pagent, and his own modeling agency—can’t even turn it off while taping!

I guess this infomercial shows us all that Mr. Trump’s reputation as a horndog is well warranted.

You can see a brief clip from the infomercial at http://www.trumpinstitute.com/interview.php but unfortunately they don’t include the bleeping or the “good looking” comment.

  • maybe donald is bored to death…who knows….it is a slim possibility that trump actually believes that because he has been in the real estate business for over thirty years, that he has seen the good and bad of the business,maybe he thinks he can offer a point of view that no one else has bothered to offer…or maybe he just likes the sound of his own voice….do you think that all the people in this country who have made themselves rich off of real estate are going to make easy for the average joe like me and you?…..I don’t think so….

  • I actually thought it was okay. It was to sell you on further seminars but I got a few tips that helped me.

  • What he’s really doing is multiple sources of income by outsourcing his name on yet another product.

    Smart concept, just needs to look less cheesy.

  • Donald Trumps seminars are scams!!! Don’t buy into it! He’s scamming less fortunate vulnerable people. Taking their money to make himself richer!!!

  • I would love to see feedback from someone who actually paid the tuition and went to the seminar. I didn’t buy into it mostly because it was a high pressure sale but I am curious to see if they actually get you to make a profitable transaction. I was going to ask the guy about the “money back guarantee” and if they would refund my money if their techniques didn’t get me a deal but I couldn’t sit there for 3 hours of motivational speaking. If they do help you to make a deal $1500 is a good trade for the 10-20k they promise you. I am still highly skeptical but would love to hear feedback.

  • Yes that is funny, I did notice the thing about beautiful people….but he said “in some cases their might be beautiful people.” He loves beautiful people, so whatever, big deal. Hey if a billionaire wants to teach me some of his secrets for free, and in exchange I have to possibly listen to him promote trump university and some other courses, I’m game.

    I see you are passionate about talking about the trump…but where is the darn trump site where I can register?!

  • In response to the first comment, I’m going to take a wild guess and say he likes the sound of his own voice.
