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."

Heh, if you think Trump would ask George W Bush how he got into Yale, you're nuttier than he is. he's either a racist or a card-carrying memb er of the Good 'Ol Boy Network, which, come to think of it, is pretty much the same thing.

I'm starting to dislike Trump. Yes, I agree we don't know a lot about Obama, but to say that he couldn't have written a book, or that he isn't smart enough to go to certain schools is just plain mud throwing. I don't think he is being racist. He is being stupid. Trump needs to realize that if he wants to run for president, then he needs to talk about the issues and stop mudslinging conspiracies. It's getting tiring to hear.
And if Trump is listening, please stop trying to defend yourself to EVERY PERSON who criticizes you. Jeez. Have tougher skin! Who cares what Seinfeld or De Niro say? Pick your battles Trump.

Yes    

Al Gore, Kerry, and G.W. Bush have their grades posted online. G.W. Bush was the better student of the three. Obama does not have his scores posted because his first presidential act was to seal his records. So much for transparency, eh? Trump's question isn't racist, but what every citizen should have questioned BEFORE voting. I questioned this over two years ago along with his record of voting "present" over "yes" or "no."

Too all of my brothers and sisters especially my African American families you need to stand tall and BOYCOTT Apprentice and the sponsors for the Apprentice. Please do not WATCH the Apprentice or buy any of the product that is affiliated with the Apprentice. You DAMN right Donald Trump is a racist and NBC must cancel his show at once. For those who do not believe that Donald Trump is a racist is one themselves. It is obvious to the world including Ray Charles and he is dead. Wake up America when are we going to stop this madness and when are we going to stop supporting people like the Donald Trumps.

Real n the field    

hahahaha.i have a question for good ole white folks:
if you HATE blacks so so much....why did you said 3 months over life and limb just to kidnap to the stolen states of america?
And then, when you were "so-called" finished with us, why did you "BLOCK' the efforts by Marcus Garvey for the mass exodus of black americans back to AFRICA?
We didnt need you...did you hear me? .....WE DIDNT, AND DONT NEED YOU!!
Africa was (and i say "was" is because like every other continent where found indigenous people..you have RAPED, MURDERED, KIDNAPPED, AND BRAIN WASHED) a majestic, beauty
country with Diamonds, Oil, gems, exotic animals, everything.
Is it because your so miserable, that the only time your happy, is when you impose your
supremacy another....
God made each and every sort of man according to his kind a spot on earth...and here YOU go,
disrepecting other people lands, cultures and laws, and STEALING, and RAPING, and setting
up government that caters only to YOU....
Now, am i lying??
btw, im not racist, just conscious..hehehe
Google: "the willy lynch letter" it will explain everything.
Good work Aryans...your father has taught you well....

HERE WE GO AGAIN, IN 2008 THE RACE CARD WAS USED AGAINST THE CLINTONS AND ANYBODY ELSE WHO DIDN'T AGREE WITH OBAMA. WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING LEFT, BUT TO SAY SOMEONE IS RACIST, THEN YOU LOST THE ARGUMENT. FOR MYSELF, OBAMA IS THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER! YOU PEOPLE BETTER BE READY FOR INFLATION CAUSED BY THE FEDERAL RESERVE WHICH OBAMA HAS DIGITIZED AND PRINTED MONEY, DON'T SAY I DIDN'T TELL YOU SO! REMEMBER THE 70'S, TALK TO SOMEONE WHO LIVED THROUGH THE YEARS CARTER WAS PRESIDENT.

Donald Trump, is Mr. Chapter 11. He has no concrete idea's on how to help America. And all he can do is attack the President, who is the finest President your country has ever had. He will be re-clected because he is the best person for the job, period. There are many fine people in the America who know this and will ensure he gets the job done for you. The Trump's and his kind will always try to bring the President down, because they are jealous and very stupid. They have no clue and just want the power. The President on the other hand really cares about your well-being. For a President like this, you should do away with term limits and let him fix it all for you. I'm in Canada but I grew up in the states and just love, Barack Obama. You are lucky to have him as your leader.

Bob Schieffer, go **** yourself. Let's hear a plausible explanation as to why Bam Bam won't release his transcripts. Yes, yes, of course I'm racist for demanding that they be released. Liberalism is a mental disorder indeed.

White men can never accept the fact that a Black man is better endowed then them in every way. End of story.

Trump isn't a racist, he's telling the truth, the not-politically-correct truth. This is the truth that all people know resides inside their head, not the truth that has been compromised because it might offend someone of color/race/ethnicity/religion or political beliefs. Trump is the only candidate I respect for doing that when it NEEDS to be done to counter Mr. Politically Correct, B. Hussein Obama.

Why is every time someone says something against Obama it always has to be racially motivated. I am not a fan of either one however, at least trump has run a business , obama while he is a very smart man, has never run a business, has never finished any previous office he held, he is an academic with very little real world experience prior to being elected to the presidency. That being said he was elected legally LET IT GO.
I dont know Mr Trump personally, I don't know President Obama personally, I dont know Mr. Schieffer personally and I would say that most people commenting on this dont either. You cant make a judgement off of one comment. Schieffer needs to take a look in the mirror before he gives his OPINION. Try just just the facts and stop slanting to your political OPINION.
