Conveniently ignoring the fact that his “Trump University” fake educational institution has been the subject of numerous investigations, sanctions and lawsuits for several years now, pompous windbag Donald Trump took to — where else — Fox and Friends to publicly accuse President Obama of orchestrating the suit filed on Saturday by New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Noting that Obama and Schneiderman had met two days prior to the filing, Trump speculated that this incident could be a “mini-IRS,” to which the Fox bobbleheads replied, “The president hasn’t liked you for a while.”

No word on whether or not Greg Abbott, the very Republican attorney general of Texas who is currently running for governor of that state, was also at the meeting to scheme with Obama and Schneiderman. Abbott launched a probe into Trump’s “school” as well, after getting 30 complaints from the Better Business Bureau — who gave the scam outfit a D- — in 2008 and 2009.

David Perdue, will face a rematch with Democrat Stacey Abrams, who he defeated by nearly 55,000 votes in 2018 in a race where Abrams did not concede and accused Kemp, then secretary of state, of abusing his office’s authority to suppress voter turnout across Georgia’s communities of color.
