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."

Not sure if Trump is racist or not but why is the president's grade point average coming into question. No one asks you for your transcripts when you get elected and if they do then Bush was a huge mistake.

obama is holding office and the re-elections will keep him there or not. trump wants credit for throwing him out, which can happen or not regardless of trump's stupid mascarade. someone take his millions and lock him up in a resthome. he'll have a taste of that 'take the oil from libya and go' attitude.

Why is it that when one sees racism in plain sight and is calling it out, others say they are playing the race card so it is not valid. When is it validated, when they say so? Donald is definitely racist but he does have "good relationships with the blacks", his words not mine.

Ignorance breeds stupidity! Not racist...just a valid point. Does anyone out there actually believe that any President got into office by his own accomplishments? There is always someone pulling the strings and directing the traffic from the start. Obama or Barry or whatever his name is no different from Bush, Clinton or any others. If you are elected to that office anyone LEGAL resident of the US has the right to ask any question they want of you and your background. He should unlock all his records and let people see how he made his way into power.

It is true though that minorities can get into law school with lower grades and lsat score..., I understand that minorities do have a tougher time in America and around the world but it is sometimes frustrating that ethnicity plays a factor for getting into law school or college for that matter...

I don't know, that does sound racist to me.....Saying that Obama didn't get into Harvard on his merit, I beg to differ!!!

The Question now is " Who is Donald Trump "? We know him as a rich a-hole, but really, who is he, where did he go to school, who are his contacts for getting him were he is today....I heard he has ties to the Mafia.......

I use to have a lot of respect for him and thought he was intelligent, but now, I don't think so....Instead of talking about real issues, like the Economy, Jobs, and so forth, he is showing that he is incompetent of real solutions. But, Reichties are gullible enough to vote for this Moron!!!

If we all started out on an equal playing field, none of that would need to happen. Look around, the country is still segregated as it ever was. Also, you can drop the stereotypical thinking about 'minorities'. Barack Obama was born of a white American mother and Kenyan father. He did not live the 'Black Experience' as a descendant of slaves. He was raised partially in Indonesia - not a typical American upbringing by any means. Also, let me add, this minority earned Bachelors and Masters degree with no Affirmative Action or assistance of any kind.

I sure would like to call your ignorant asses damn fools, but I won't.

According to the Harvard Law Review, Obama was thankful for the assistance he received through affirmative action. Read his 1990 letter here:
(9th paragraph down: “….. I must say, however, that as someone who has undoubtedly benefited from affirmative action programs during my academic career, and as someone who may have benefited from the Law Review’s affirmative action policy when I was selected to join the Review last year…”)

IN SUPPORT OF BOB SCHIEFFER! I enthusiastically commend Bob Schieffer in his calling this sad guy out for what he is. Besides having obvious racist undertones, Trump is a greedy, sensationalist, general waste of time. And his hotels, casinos, and tv shows all suck. Not to mention his golf courses are literally sinking. What has happened to the American public showing a certain base degree of respect to our ELECTED American president. You didn't vote for him, so what?-He's still the President of the United States of America.

Had the Liberal Media taken time out from its drooling and leg trembles and done due diligence on BHO there would be no question of his birth place OR his academic record !!
It is customary for candidates for high office to provide certtain records and for the press to vette the records !!!

Getting into law school is one thing. STAYING in and graduating is another thing entirely. Obama proved himself the equal or better of everyone in his undergraduate and law school classes by the grades and honors he earned there.
