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."

affirmative action sows the seeds of racism. Eliminate AA, and much of the fuel for potentially racist lines of thinking will go away.

You do realize there are plenty of stupid whites and asians as well, right?

He's just catering to the racist Tea Party. They are also the ones making a big fuss about Obama's birth certificate.

Devon,

Are you sure you ready to have that conversation? Surely you didn't think you make such statements and not be challenged. Well here is one African-American, Black, Negro or even the other N word that will challenge you.

Why was affirmative action necessary? Do you think someone sat somewhere one day and thought hmmm I think I will find a way to get blacks in. Devon, if you took the time to research your facts instead of writing a half ****ed response you would know the history of affirmative action and WHY it was necessary.

Let me give you an overview just in case you don't take the time to research it. While affirmative action may have gotten a "minority" as you say in a specific college/university, it doesn't keep them there. In other words everyone that attends a college or unversity has to work in order to stay. Are you suggesting that my bachelors, masters degrees were given to be based on affirmative action and that I took some white man's place? Are you drinking from the same fountain that Trump washes his hair in? Something has gotten you off your rocker this evening. I know the police can give a DUI when you drivng drunk but I think it's time to institude a WWD (Writing While Drunk) offense and you Devon are the first recipient. Surely you are drunk if you think Trump is not racist.

Trumps comment may not be racist,but it certainly sounds sexist. Doesn't he have friends that have daughters with all the qualifications and can't get into Harvard?

Why is it racist that Obama be held to the same standards as all the other Presidents? They've all released their school transcripts.

And why did it take him 8 years to graduate from Harvard if he is such a monster brain?

To answer Trump's question about how Obama got into Harvard, that's easy, he was a legacy and they had to let him in just like Flounder in Animal House.

Would Obama's BC be in question if he was white and with a more americanized name? If you can't see how racist this is, well, then , I don't know what to tell you. Just Give me a US president who was HARASSED to show his US birth certificate, just one name
