The host of "Face the Nation" -- flush with anger -- called Donald Trump a racist.

Bob Schieffer appeared Wednesday night on "The CBS Evening News" and reacted to Trump's latest salvo against President Barack Obama, in which Trump suggested the Prez might not have had the grades to get into Harvard Law School.

Schieffer said, "That's just code for saying he got into law school because he's black.  This is an ugly strain of racism that's running through this whole thing."

Earlier in the day, Trump said, "I have friends who have smart sons with great marks, great boards, great everything and they can't get into Harvard.  We don't know a thing about this guy.  There are a lot of questions that are unanswered about our President."

I am not a Trump fan... but it is annoying that every Democrat calls every Republican or independent, a racist. They are the real racists by bringing race into it and making everything a racist issue !

Does the Donald really think this publicity stunt is going to enhance his brand? If so, he is getting more delusional as he ages.

Trump needs to fall back before all that crap he's doing seriously backfires on him. I'm black and can't stand the race card being played on a dime....but dude is getting to a point where he's looking a little suspect right now. "It's just politics" doesn't explain EVERYTHING away.

Never, in my mind, did I ever think that Donald was (or is) being racist with the charges he's making against Barack. When someone plays the race card, that shows me who the racist is.

If he should run, I will consider voting for him. After all, the career politicians couldn't get it right.

Just because someone says something about a black person does not make it racist! If President Obama would have said that about Trump nothing would be said of it. People are so ignorant. This is completely annoying. We claim to be erasing race barriers, but when people make ignorant comments like Schieffer did, it doesn't allow us to progress. Trump is planning on running for President, and perhaps he is pointing out valid points. Once again, just because something is said against Mr. Obama DOESN'T mean it is racist.

School is not about good grades its about life experience. Mr. Trump I suggest you read up on the Fabulous Sir Richard Branson.This generation knows its not about gradess..its what else you can bring to the table...you should know better. No racism. Trump is just ignorant about everything outside of the box.
