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."

elpablo,
All presidential candidates provide this information when they run for office as did President Obama. All candidates are thoroughly vetted when they run. Do you really think Cheif Justice Roberts would have sworn him into office without this? Duh!

The real question is: How the hell did George Bush get into an Ivy League school?

Obama is the perfect teflon president. You can criticize him all you want but nothing sticks because you just get accused of being racist.

The liberal media attacking anyone who dares challenge Obama...big surprise. CBS News lost its integrity years ago with the Dan Rather fiasco.

Some are equating this TV clown who has gone bankrupt multiple times as a serious candidate.

Wake up America. Your future ain't a freaking video game or a game show, or a TV episode where all ends well after an hour.

Trump is a scary sign of current reality. Forget the issues, support the loudest egomaniac, even if he makes no sense.

The rest of the world is laughing their heads off as the country keeps imploding and turns to a D-list TV personality as their savior.

Everyone should stop attacking Donald Trump. This guy can't be serious. He is too much of a smart man to be talking all of this claptrap. I think he's helping the President Obama by mimicking idiot birthers and Republicans.

Wow ! Is that the only come back you guys have ?? Being Racist is so over dramatic today. Only a shollow attempt to derail facts ??? come on ! WAKE UP AMERICA! Black, yellow white or purple Obama is our nations worst president including Jimmy Carter. Its just too bad Carter was white or the parties could have used the racist word then. It wouldnt have made him a better president or helped our nation. What if Obama was green? Oh but that does bring up the Alien factor again..... get real people the fact is when you wake in the morning our America is another multimillions in debt. I dont think Trump is racist and if he is I guess i will vote for the racist. It wasnt too many years ago that the word BAD really ment BAD but now represents COOL. Maybe this RACIST word is headed towards the same changes. Keep useing it... it might be cool and accepted oneday. REALLY Lame reporting ! Get to work and give us the real news.

I hate the race card being played so nonchalantly. Every stop to think that many people hate Barack Obama because he's been an absolute failure as a leader, not because he's black?

This is the crux if the Campaign for 2012,
anyone who criticizes Obama is a racist and
anyone who doesn't vote for him must be too.

Obama incites hatred and for that alone he must go.

Good point about how Bush got into Yale. We know it wasn't his grades.

Obama graduated magna *** laude. Obviously not the sign of a dumbie.

Trump needs to suck a big one and shut up.

Underlying this Orangutan statement is the belief, he and many whites have, that black people cannot be successful without the aid of affirmative action. If Obama gets into a prestigious university it must be due to AA and not his grades. This comes from the same effer who was born into with a silverspoon in his mouth and who hires mail-order brides.

20% of university recruits from from LEGACY recruiting, which benefits mostly wealthy/established whites. e.g. George W. Bush., Donald Trump, who got to where he got because he was born wealthy.
