Again, this is about Trump University specifically, but... Yes. That was the point of questioning the claim that Trump University was a "failure". It's likely that it was actually fairly successful at achieving the goal it was intended to achieve: swindling people out of their money.
Exactly on Trumps Ballance sheet it is likely a successful con.

Not the same thing as an invitation to throw down. Embarrassing, sure. Totally inappropriate for a fully growed man, sure. Not a challenge to meet after the bell, however.

Yes I expect Cadet Bone Spurs would pee his pants if Joe Biden actually came up to him with a raised fist.

More campaign reminiscing.

Remember when they were saying, during the campaign, that Donald Trump is giving great speeches and drawing big crowds, but he is spending much less money and not using social media as well as Crooked Hillary’s large and highly sophisticated staff. Well, not saying that anymore!

Let me add that Biden's comment was asinine as well.

That doesn't mean Trump's response was reasonable for a sitting President, but Biden also shoulda avoided schoolyard taunting.

Also, the implication was they would have fought 60 years ago when young and stupid.

I don't know, beating Trump as his own game is exactly what is working so well for Stormy.

As an aside, I've seen it opined that Biden's taunts amount to threatening the President.

I think that's ridiculous - its clearly a hypothetical boasting how he might have dealt with someone like Trump had he encountered him in High School. Still maybe inappropriate, but hardly a threat.

Agreed. An asinine comment, but not a threat.

When the Commander-in-Chief acts like a big mouth schoolyard kid, the possibility of any respect left in the government goes away with this behavior.

Having said that, I do think Biden would take Trump in round 2.

Perhaps the most depressing part of the Trumpsters administration. A degradation of the office, and of American governance in general.

On March 11 Trump tweeted:
"The Failing New York Times purposely wrote a false story stating that I am unhappy with my legal team on the Russia case and am going to add another lawyer to help out. Wrong. I am VERY happy with my lawyers, John Dowd, Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow. They are doing a great job and....."

Today's news: "John Dowd Resigns as Trump’s Lead Lawyer in Special Counsel Inquiry"

And three days ago: "President Trump hired the longtime Washington lawyer Joseph E. diGenova on Monday, adding an aggressive voice to his legal team who has pushed the theory on television that the F.B.I. and Justice Department framed Mr. Trump." (link)

Dowd resigning and diGenova coming on board is for people familiar with the justice system a clear sign that Trump's legal case is hopeless, and that the only play Trump still has is in the court of public opinion, the only area Cohen and diGenova have some skill in playing in.
It is incredibly embarrassing that the most powerful man in the country cannot get a tier one defense team to work for him.

Those tier one lawyers spent a lot of time building up their reputation. If I were them, I wouldn't want to sully that by associating with the president of the United States, either.

And, for those who care, a shattering of US reputation abroad. Which has come as quite a shock after the previous, eloquent and charming incumbent.


(I would note that, for some, a lowering of the USA's reputation abroad seems to be a 'win'. In which case, he is definitely the winingest president ever)
