'Face the Nation' Host: Trump's a Racist!

4/28/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."

I used to like Bob Schieffer. When does questioning "qualifications" become racist? Why when democrats have no great answer to a good question, they say your racist. Would it had made a difference if Colin Powell had asked the question? Really? If Obama practiced transparency all of this would not be news. When the Clinton's said he did not have a birth certificate proving he is American he could have stopped it then. Same with his transcripts. If Obama was a republican, he would have coughed it up already. The media would not let him get away with it then... Certainly not 3 years later.

The man was Law Review, for goodness sake! You do not make law review based on skin, you make it based on academic excellence.

I guess the 52% of Americans that disapprove of Obama's
performance must be racist too. Every idiot who can't think
of an intelligent argument or point plays the race card.
It's sort of like hearing a car alarm go off in a parking lot full of cars. Noone pays much attention any more.

Only about 37% of americans think Obama's doing a good job. Thats down from 70% when he took office. So Obama has turned 33% of americans into racists in less than 3 years?

Affirmative action president and commander in Chief of the armed forces of the United States of America........

Does anybody know if Obama or trump are Freemasons ??
Both candidates are usually "holding hands under the blanket"..

I thought I heard somewhere, Trump was member of the Skull and Bones during his business college days ?

I have read that all past presidents and members of Congress from Yale or Harvard are members of the Bohemian Grove and the DeMolay society.

These "fraternities of gifted" formed in youth working together their entire lifetime to concentrate power for the benefit of attaining political and economic influence in this world....and beyond??

You all played that Race card when he was running before and every one backed off as Oooohh you can't question a Black man that makes you a racist.

Bull Chit!!! His 2 1/2 years has NOT been the best for America and it not only our right but our job to question leaders. All Leaders Black and White. ANY Honest reporter would ask the questions that need to be asked and HAVE been asked in the past.

His Policies suck, I am sick and tired of him apologizing every time you turn around.

If it was anyone else but the chosen one you would have asked any and all questions.

When the Republican candidate is named I do not want to hear ONE QUESTION that has not been asked and answered by Obama.

If any candidate is questioned about something that was NOT asked of Obama then we will KNOW WHO THE RACIEST IS ! ! !

Good for Schieffer. Trump is a pissant, hilarious that he thinks he could be anything other than a fat old white racist living on daddy's money.

You're right and Schieffer knows it. But he doesn't care because he's aiming his bogus message at people who don't have two brain cells to rub together.

How quickly people forget that this whole birther issue was brought up by Hilary Clinton supporters during the Democratic primaries.

Many have also forgotten that McCain was challenged about his birth and eligibility to run for president as well.

I for one, never doubted President Obama about his birth place, but that fact that Congress got involved in the McCain investigation and that Obama has spent a lot of time trying to hide some of his past made me wonder if he was trying to hide something. Again, I didn't believe it had anything to do with him being eligible to be president, but wondering what he was/is trying to hide about his past.

On the issue of school records, lets also remember that Bush was also questioned about how he got into Yale.

So based on these things, do we assume that Hilary Clinton supporters were racist? Do those who disagreed with Bush and question how he got into Yale racist?

Now to bring this all back around to the topic of the article. So Trump jumped on the dumb bandwagon of the birther issue and wants to see the academic records of President Obama. How exactly does that make him a racist? I'm honestly tired of having the race card be pulled out as the first response to anyone who challenges Obama. What else has Trump done to have people accuse him of being racist?

by voting no does that make me a racist? Because apparently if I critize President Obama in anyway I must be a racist.

If you think thats nuts wait til you hear about the commentator on tv today who called Trump a racist for telling Obama to get off the basketball court and do something about gas prices. They are very afraid of Trump and he hasn't even announced he's running yet
