Appearing Thursday morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman had strong words for the recent Trump University scandal that is threatening to take over the political dialogue.

Schneiderman refused to tip-toe around the subject and instead called the school a “straight up fraud.”

The attorney general responded to a handful of reviews of Trump University which praised the school and said that they were happy with their education.

“It’s like selling people something you say is a Mercedes and it turns out to be a Volkswagen. And even if some people say, ‘Well actually, I kind of like the Volkswagen,’ it’s still fraud because it’s not a Mercedes. This was not a university.”

Schneiderman then delved into the damning details of the case, saying that every aspect of the school was a lie.
