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."

Every candidate who runs for any office, especially the President of the US is vetted thoroughly by the press. But not this dude, the press apologize before asking him a question. And I am sick of the race card being used. Obummer said he would be transparent, yet he is not, and when asked to come forward regarding his past he waves his finger and stirs up his base to scream racists! Shame on the press and the crazies; this country is going down the tubes and Obummer and the press has a lot to do with it.I mean who is this dude?????? Why is he our president????

I believe Trump has a personality disorder. I find it so strange how he praises himself so much and has to tell everybody how great he is. Donald should get help.

GypsyLaura, well that's because none of the white presidents spend a good portion of their youth growing up in Indonesia. It was an honest question that he shouldn't had a problem verifying. Hillary Clinton brought the same issue up when she was running for the nomination. Is she a racist too? Do you think this issue actually arose because he's black? Wise up!

Bob Schieffer is an idiot. There is nothing racist about what Donald Trump said. I'm so sick of the media playing the race card like this.

Val, all the past "white presidents" voluntarily furnished their birth certificates as is common practice when running for office. Get a clue!

It is a tremendous injustice to even bring race into the conversation. It is a sick level of jabbing back at Donald Trump. Donald Trump isnt innocent, his means to get what he wanted was less than prestine. Its a sad day when political fights come down to this type of rhetoric. As we the public hope that there is real progress, Congress and the Supreme court are planning their summer vacations, the President spent the day flying to the Oprah Winfrey show and back. We are at times of epic chaotic levels. We dont stand much hope with the lack of integrity and accountability from the government we created. Please go to my website there are links to contact your local official and the White House. The best thing we can do, is each one of us to do an independent act of kindness. Please share yours, Bruce Applegate, MA Ed www.NewHeraldNews.com

Trump is a birther. Trump is a racist. Plain and simple. I'm not an Obama fan by an means but these birther idiots that continue to question whether the guy was born in the US despite all the evidence that he was are all, ALL, motivated by racism. They're grasping at straws. This douche has completely shown he's a racist. He's not talking about issues.. he's trying to slip in ridiculous questions to make even bigger idiots think he's on to something. I really hate US politics anymore. It's all just one big joke.

The biggest problem with Trump being a politician is that he can't take criticism.
