    Ten Reasons Why Trudeau Should Serve More Than 10 Years

    #1. Trudeau concocted the idea of making infomercials to sell a weight-loss book before he had lost weight or even written a book because he believed “[i]f you want to get rich, write a book on how to lose weight.”

    #3. He uttered this classic quote: “I have been in the TV infomercial and direct response industry for over 20 years . . . The advertisements for these products are all false and misleading. I should know because I was involved in the production of many of them.”

    #9. In a Facebook post Trudeau proclaimed his innocence and likened himself to “all the people that stood silent and did not speak in their own defense . . . Jesus, Mandela, Gandhi, Chavez.”

    Despite orders from judges across the country, the Boca Raton man continued to bilk hundreds of thousands of people by crafting clever ads with screaming headlines that appeared in newspapers and magazines nationwide.

    "BLAST UP TO 49 POUNDS OFF YOU IN ONLY 29 DAYS!" one shouted. "Amazing Fat-Fighting Super Pill Devours Fat!" claimed another.

    On Friday, those years of successful, if bogus, advertising campaigns came back to haunt him.

    Citing years of fraudulent activity, U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra sentenced the 58-year-old to 20 years in prison.

    "The number of victims in this case is astronomical," Marra said. "They got a product but they don't have a product that I think is worth anything."...
