Wharton Professor Called Trump Dumbest Student He Ever Had
Former Wharton professor William T. Kelley regularly referred to Trump as the "dumbest goddamn student I ever had" according to Kelley's friend Frank Di Prima. Kelley, who retired in 1092, was the author of the influential text book "Marketing Intelligence." He frequently included reference to Trump's arrogance, saying he arrived at Wharton thinking he already knew everything, Di Prima wrote recently. Kelley's characterization entered public discourse earlier this month when Trump challenged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to an IQ test after media reports surfaced that Tillerson called Trump a "moron.".
The University of Pennsylvania "Daily Pennsylvanian" reported Trump biographer Gwenda Blair's assertion that Trump was admitted to Wharton as a "special favor" to an admissions officer who knew his brother. Trump frequently touts his Wharton pedigree, but several classmates interviewed by the "Daily Pennsylvanian" suggested Trump commuted to New York on weekends and may have skipped class, while others had never heard of him during their time at the school.
