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."

Its a well known fact that colleges, certain jobs, etc let in a certain percentage of non-whites, reguardless of weather or not they meet the criteria for it. The reason being so many non-whites claiming discrimination so theyre given a free ride. Not saying Obama did this, but it is a well do***ented FACT. So imo, he is hardly racist, just aggressive.

just to ad a personal note here: WHITES are now the minorities as more folks come to the US. Everyone should be treated equal. Do away with the black/hispanic (etc) scholarships and give the money to ANYONE who is deserving,reguardless of nationality/race/color.

So why didn't Trump question the reason why Bush was able to enter Yale? President Obama never had a dad who could have influenced Harvard to accept him but the Sr. Bush managed to do that for the Jr.

Trump is a bigot and a pure prejudiced hypocritical arrogant filthy rich old man.

Don't you know by now when a non black brings up the race card it is just to start a race war of words and to upset peace?

Now every other poster will have something negative to bitch about blacks, while we are not giving a damn.

Stop singing for this piano ass player. I refuse to spend the rest of my life defending my people when white Tom, **** and Harry try to upset us.

Some of you think of blacks as one whole and if you want to be stupid for a minute, I will play......PAY US FOR ALL THE WORK OUR ANCESTORS DID RECEIVING NOTHING BUT A BEATING FOR BACK BREAKING WORK.

Pretty stupid huh?..........HELLO

Like Anne Richards once said about George W Bush, the same can be said about Donald Trump. "Poor (Donald) George. He can't help it - he was born with a silver foot in his mouth"

Is there any doubt that the Bob Schieffer is a biased liberal? It's no suprise that so few people watch the CBS Evening News given the inherent bias of that program.

Trump's statement was no racist at all and he is asking the tough questions that the media should have been asking in 2008. Obama is moron and done a terrible job as president and maybe this could have been avoided if the media had treated Obama the same way it treated Hillary Clinton or the Republican candidates.

A racist is someone who says things like trump has said about his friends kids getting good marks yet cant get into a good school yet Obama did? A racist is the first one who says things like I have friends who are black or I get along with "the" blacks. People who are not racist are the ones who point out comments that are racist.It is our duty to point out comments made by people who say things like this because if we dont then we are just as bad as the person with those views.

So if you question anything about Obama (who is black)..then you are automatically racist? Hmmm...that is racist to insinuate that because one questions.

And yes, Trump is correct...affirmative action is used for those who do not qualify...just simply because of their skin color. Look to all the lawsuits filed by those who can't pass civil service tests and claim it's unfair because of their race! A test is a test is a test..there should be no special "ethnic" accomodations for anyone and noone should be promoted who doesn't have the qualifications just to fill a quota.

As it turns out, Donald Trump is a wacko and a nutcase.

As they say:

"It is better to be called an idiot and remain silent, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

You got that, Donald?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

No Lily, but we can’t help it if people decide to put on the shoe that fits.

People who make up lies about the POTUS so they can have an excuse for their hate have been called racist because they do not have even one legitimate criticism of the POTUS, but seem to have a very blind and bitter hatred for no reason whatsoever.

Why is it you disagree with a black man or woman you are being racist? Enough of this crap. Trump disagrees with Obama's policies and inexperience and questionable religion just like I do, but it does not have anything to do with the color of his skin. Everytime someone doesnt get their way or they see someone is questioning Obama they are racist. I think the commentary needs a new job. This is ridiculous. Besides that Obama is black and white so where is the racism? I am glad we have a black president...just not this unexperienced one.

Of course the dumb liberals resort to calling anybody who questions their master as a racist. Its funny to watch because they don't have ANYTHING intelligent to say, so their comments are always about race. When will they come up with something better then that? NEVER cause they are all MORONS on dumbamas junk.
