Ditka is of course smarter than an oaf like Starving but finds Hillary's ignorance about guns to be a more important topic than whether Trump is a fraudster.

I ask Dopers: Would the following be a fair summary of Ditka's performance in that thread?
Mr. Ditka has indicated that the fraud allegations against Trump U., while probably valid, are too irrelevant for comment, and certainly less important than any misspeakings by the candidate the fraudster defeated in 2016.
I've asked Mr. Ditka to research Trump U. and report his conclusions. I will retract the above comment if/when he demonstrates sentience.

I'm glad you commented on this, as I was rather taken aback as well. He appears able to list chapter and verse on any number of Hillary Clinton's failings, but Trump University and the cataloging of Trump's 2000+ lies is beneath concern. How can one know what one opposes without understanding what one supports?

Shodan's eloquent rebuttal notwithstanding.
