4/28/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 don't underestimate the motives of anybody with orange skin and a floppy scalp!!
I mean, maybe he is, I certainly didn't see him all up in the news demanding to see proof of U.S. birth when it came to the white folk that were presidents.
I don’t think he’s just prejudice against blacks, but I would include gays as well.
My opinion of Trump is that he’s a nasty man, period.
Certainly not a person who I would want to be in the company of. Nope, not at all!!

How is questioning Obama's academic record racist? Answer- because white presidents aren't ever challenged, look at Bush's daddy buying his way into Yale & no one challenged him about his phony degree.

For Trump to infer Obama got into Harvard based on affirmative action & that he took opportunities away from white people, how much more racist could he be? Pathetic.

Why just his friends son's? Girls can get a law degree also!


Forget the elitist attitude, what about the blatant misogyny?


Emmit at TMZ said he got a 3.7 gpa, but had great SAT scores and that he was amazed he got into Harvard!


BTW, Harvard doesn't give traditional grades only your percentile of pass/fail - high pass, pass, low pass, fail - a lot is based on the Harvard Socratic Method where each student is required/asked a question during class in which he is given a (hp, p, lp, f) on their participation-knowledge!

The liberal media attacking anyone who dares challenge Obama...big surprise. CBS News lost its integrity years ago with the Dan Rather fiasco.

LOL really? When was bush asked for his BC ?
Reagan? Clinton? Anyone you care to mention? Anyone? Really, tell me one? Just ONE?
=============================
Moondust,

Which Dan Rather fiasco might that be,there are to many to count ?

John McCain while running for President in 2000 had to prove he was born in the Panama Canal Zone (his father was a naval officer in 1936)and his non continental U.S birth certificate was questioned and refuted by both Parties.

It's clearly a dig at affirmative action. Why should Obama need to prove that he deserved to be in Harvard. I was at Bush's 2001 Graduation Speech at Yale where he stated he was only a C student and his best memories were the crazy parties. I'm willing to bet Obama got better grades than C's, yet Trump isn't questioning how Bush was only admitted into school because of Daddy's checkbook? I like affirmative action a lot better then someone getting into school because of their father's money.

The Donald the president -
Order of business:

1/ change the name of the White House

2/ invade Libya, fire Qaddafi
and put Donald Jr. in charge...

3/ Fire the Saudi Royal Family
and put Ivanka in charge...

4/ give Baron some smaller countries

(he is only a five year old boy)...

5/ put Melania "the model" wife
in charge of fashion and lip gloss...

and if you don't like it,
The Donald will FIRE YOU...

I don't even want to read these comments because I know there are idiots who probably posted stupid comments. Donald Trump is a damn fool for thinking he has ANY chance at winning the presidential nomination. I bet he knows it too and he's doing all this presidency talk for ratings or publicity. He's a pompous dirty old man who keeps marrying young women. Then again... Sarah Palin was the VP candidate, which just shows how freakin scary the republican party is.

Bush was the biggest mistake this country ever made and he didn't have to justify a single thing. It really sucks Obama had to put out his birth certificate to shut up the crazy claims that he's not a natural-born American. I kind of wish he just stood his ground because now the wackos are saying it's fake anyways. I say from now on EVERYONE has to show their birth certificate.

OBAMA 2012!!!!

You Libtards want affirmative action, praise it, want to extend it, think it is still needed-but when your guy might have used to get where he is then it's racist. You should be proud that your racist system allowed a dolt like Obama to get where he is.
Obama has more important things to do than fix the economy though. Like going on Oprah. You retards need to be destroyed.

HOORAY FOR BOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I'm so sick and tired ( oh, gawd, I did turn into my mother) of this crap.
People are hurting in the land of plenty. I know that for some of you a black president is just very hard to swallow. But what is more important your racist bull**** or the future of this once great nation. Let's get on with the business of getting jobs. We are in this TOGETHER...... please help these poor victims of these terrible storms and our down & out economy....PLEASE....PLEASE...let's help our economy to get strong again so that our future will be one of hope and not defeat......

Obama is a very intelligent man and he made it to Harvard on merit, not because of affirmative action. Us "liberals" are not all for affirmative action, myself included. How can anyone call Obama an idiot??? Do you not remember who his predecessor was? Yes, the man who entertained us with nuggets like "you misunderestimate me." A Yale grad.

BTW, Bush got into Yale cuz his daddy was president! Yet no one questioned his merit.

Right wingers just can't stand it that a black guy is president. And a damn good one at that too.

Why do people keep on insisting Obama refused to reveal his birth certificate. He produced the exact same thing every other Hawaiian born person produces to obtain a driver's license, state id or passport. The Hawaiian Governor's both Republican and Democrat have personally viewed the original and have verified its authenticity. The Hawaiian Minster of Health has personally verified it several times. The Hawaiian Government also repeatedly explained their laws prevented anyone, even Obama himself from getting a copy.

If you paid attention today it was clearly stated that a special law enacted making it legal for Obama to ask Hawaii to wave the law and release a copy of his long form BC. Hawaii, being totally fed up with the constant requests for verification and the continued insertion Hawaiian officials were lying agreed to wave the law in this case and released the long form.

Obama is the first President who has ever been forced to produce the long form certificate. Ok, lets leave race out of for a moment based on the fact that he spent time as a younger living abroad. Certainly not the first President to have lived abroad, but lets give the benefit of the doubt here and say that Obama's color had nothing to do with the doubts.

Then comes along the rude crude braggart Donald Trump who stirs the whole "Birthers" pot again to gain attention. Finally Trump challenges Obama-you produce the long form live birth certificate and I will release all financial statements. This included the details of his 3 very shady bankruptcies that some how left him a billionaire. So Obama makes a law to bypass Hawaii's law and produces the very do***ent that Trump claimed was missing, despite Hawaiian officials assuring it was right where it was supposed to be. Now Donald say he wants to personally see the original and have it examined by experts to verify it is real. Again Trump suggest that Hawaiian officials are all in on the conspiracy and lying. If I was them I would sue Trump and make him prove his claims in court.

Now present with the fact the live birth certificate signed by the doctor in attendence is real Trump makes accusations against how Obama got into and graduated from Harvard. Now Donald Trump is demanding to see Obama's school transcripts, and clearly suggesting Obama only got in because he was black.

Sorry folks but that is clearly a blatant racists attitude, no matter how you try to spin it. Just like Trumps comments about Obama playing basketball and asking what percentage of the NBA is black. I could give more examples but why bother.

Even if Obama gives Trump a copy of his transcripts which have already been made public) Trump will come up with something else to focus on. See now Trump is up the creek without a paddle because he knows that producing his financial records will reveal too many of his under handed deals that left many people broke and robbed many of their life savings. Just google "lawsuits against Trump"

Trump won't run in 2012. His background and personal life could not stand up to the scutiny that Omaba and other Presidential candites have been forced to endure. Too many of his dirty little secrets will be exposed. Just go ask the people in Tampa.
