Former Wharton Professor: 'Trump Was the Dumbest G*dam Student I Ever Had'

Frank DiPrima, Alternet -  Late Professor William T. Kelley taught Marketing at Wharton School of Business and Finance, University of Pennsylvania, for 31 years, ending with his retirement in 1982. Dr. Kelley, who also had vast experience as a business consultant, was the author of a then-widely used textbook called Marketing Intelligence -- The Management of Marketing Information (originally published by P. Staples, London, 1968). … Dr. Bill was one of my closest friends for 47 years when we lost him at 94 about six years ago.  Bill would have been 100 this year. 

Donald J. Trump was an undergraduate student at Wharton for the latter two of his college years, having been graduated in 1968.

Professor Kelley told me 100 times over three decades that “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.” I remember his emphasis and inflection — it went like this — “Donald Trump was the dumbest goddam student I ever had.” Dr. Kelley told me this after Trump had become a celebrity but long before he was considered a political figure.  Dr. Kelley often referred to Trump’s arrogance when he told of this — that Trump came to Wharton thinking he already knew everything.

It's unfortunate that Dr. Kelly is dead so it can't be authenticated.

I have never thought that trump actually wanted to win so it might be that he is so dumb that he under estimated just how stupid and incompetent the dnc and hilclin were and are.

I hope I can win the lottery so I can afford to pack up all of my family and become an expat, Iceland might be a good country to move too.

Please - Trump is not an idiot. Idiots don't become President of the United States when opposed by practically the entire political elite, news media, academia, entertainment media - and outspent by a factor of at least 2 or 3 to 1.

Idiots also don't take a good start in life and make it exponentially better - especially by venturing into new arenas not already prepared by their predecessors - Manhattan Real Estate, entertainment, branding, etc.

Trump is misunderstood, because he does not fall into any of the lazy, normal assumptions people make about others. And that is why he will continue to be underestimated by his opponents - and they will continue to lose.

Trump picks fights with the grieving parents and wives of slain service members. Nuff said!
