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."

Look, Blacks did not start this chit so whatever caused you to 'HATE something a white man pulled out of his ass might be some unresolved issues inside yourself


It takes a borderline nut to come up with hateful words when Blacks said nothing

Where was Al Sharpton? .............Perhaps he was helping collect missing pieces of flesh resulting from DOZENS being blown to bits by McVeigh. Care to compare those deaths by a white man to a white girl being jumped by two black girls?

Al Sharpton is Not our God.

Ok, he releases his grades(after graduating towards the top of his class). Then what? You want a medical exam to prove that he is a man? You want to see a picture of his d***? Wait! Thats what it really is. ******gers like Trump want to see pictures of Obama's D***! That explains everything!!!!

Actually, everybody hates the Muslim, but McVeigh's the real reason we have to get naked at the airport.

al sharpton was quiet when michael jackson called Tommy Mottola a racist, devilish man. jackson's civil rights pals were aware when he said nothing was wrong with marrying pedophile racist Elvis' daughter, and dangling his baby from a balcony, sleeping with boys, and mutilating his nose to look like a white woman.

Oh well, men. Let me just reminds you of your sad and progressive nature:

"Do you think... that men have always massacred each other, as they do today? Have they always been liars, cheats, traitors, brigands, weak, flighty, cowardly, envious, gluttonous, drunken, grasping, and vicious, bloody, backbiting, debauched, fanatical, hypocritical, and silly?"

Gawker had a good post about how trump's son in law Jared Kushner got in to Harvard because his father gave a $10 million donation--Donald should know all about unworthy applicanta to Harvard. They are part of his family.

correction to my earlier post: donald trump needs to shut his giant mouth-hole right NOW! once again, a republican candidate is embarrassing us as a nation for a change. i cannot remember a time in my life, when an ELECTED american president has been accused of being a non-citizen. the question of his legitimacy to hold the office, based on birthplace has now been answered. oh but wait, now trump (and the delusional birthers who run actually back a trump for president ticket) insist that we have to question his intelligence. REPUBLICAN president (questionably elected) george w. bush proudly announced to the nation that his presidency was proof positive that even a "C" student could aspire to the highest office in the land. i'd like to see trump's much ballyhooed transcripts from the Wharton School of Business--perhaps Mr. Trump can explain to us as a nation how it is that his extensive "success" resumé is littered with well-do***ented bankruptcy not just once, but twice; a very well-known penchant for womanizing while current wives are pregnant; etc. he's a real role model. and really qualified to do the one thing he does well: name-calling and creating circus environments wherever he goes. it is alarming to see and hear the remarks being made about our president by our very own "people". i don't believe that what we are witnessing is the "freedom of speech" protected by our constitution when trump and others, continue to engage in veiled racism directed at a sitting president. the remarks are first and foremost--treason. they are incredibly incendiary at the least and dangerous at worst. once again, the republican party is causing US to be the laughing stock of the world. crucifying obama day in and day out, for all kinds of allegations, is not doing one constructive thing. other countries look to us for the promise that our nation claims to stand for. how sad that as a nation, we would allow the ultimate "celebrity apprentice" to be considered our best representative to the world. bravo to bob schieffer for breaking the journalist code of not editorializing for this important news item and calling it like it truly is.
