Donald Trump Bristles at Claim He's a Racist

4/28/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump says it's "terrible" the host of CBS'  "Face the Nation" accused him of racism.

Donald Trump Racist

Trump tells TMZ ... "That is a terrible statement for a newscaster to make.  I am the last person that such a thing should be said about."

Bob Schieffer delivered a scathing statement against Trump Wednesday night on the "CBS Evening News," reacting to Trump's insinuation that President Barack Obama may not have had the grades to get into Harvard.

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."

We asked Trump if he was suggesting Obama got into Harvard Law School through affirmative action.  He said, "Affirmative action is out there.  It's a program that is available. But I have no idea whether it applies in this case.  I'm not suggesting anything."

Trump would not say if he supports or opposes affirmative action.  But he's clearly trying to douse the flames he ignited, by saying, "Grades are the least important aspect of somebody being president.  It's not a big subject for me."

So all of you are stating that Trump is a racist and that is fact,, OK...


So then you all can agree that Obama is a Liar and falsely produced a "legal" do***ent this week and should be impeached right?

That makes him a fraud, liar, & a con.. Nixon was impeached for the same reasons.

Earth to Donald Trump: Bob Schieffer is not a "newscaster."

Schieffer has been a CBS reporter and news anchor but, as TMZ indicates, Bob is currently the host of FACE THE NATION.

Fresno has PLENTY of pretty, available women.    

This forum proves just how dumb and trivial Americans really are. If it weren't for blogs like TMZ, you wouldn't even have a voice at all. Enjoy your fifteen seconds of shame, losers.

donald trump is indeed a racist. I know he wishes for the time when the master's son or daughter taught a slave how to read or when the place of education on the plantation was burned to the ground and the teacher hung or beaten so that there would be no education on that Plantation. How much money did his father pay educational institutions to get his "A" educated? How much money did his daughter's father in-law donate/pay to get her husband educated? I never liked donald trump and I will continue to use my mute and channel change buttons whenever he, Sarah Palin and other racists appear on my television. By the way, Mr.Schiefer is not the only reporter that called donald trump a racist. Please note that I did not capitalize donald's name as it sickens me to utter the name of that racist.

Clearly the only thing these threads prove is the American way is to bash other bloggers whom you don't agree with politically, racially, religiously, nationally, sexually, economically, or socially. Dirt is the way and everyone has a shovel. Where is Diogenes when we need him? Or a voice of reason would sometimes work.

To my knowledge Mr. Trump you were that great of a teenager yourself in school according to articles your parent had to put you in military school. "Donald Trump attended the The Kew-Forest School, Forest Hills, New York, as did some of his siblings. After he had some difficulties there when he was thirteen years old, his parents sent him to the New York Military Academy (NYMA), hoping to direct his energy and assertiveness in a positive manner".... no wonder you are such a hypocrite!!

Didn't CBS demand Nixon turn over the tapes?

Didn't CBS demand that Reagan testify about Iran-Contra?

Didn't CBS demand to see Bush's National Guard records?

But when someone asks to see Obama's required birth certificate and educational records, CBS takes a hissy fit and cries FOUL! Cries RACISM! What a fine example of an unbiased news organization!


So according to CBS's Bob Schieffer, BECAUSE OBAMA IS BLACK AND A LIBERAL HE [naturally] GETS A PASS. AND WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS.....PLAY THE RACE CARD.

Chris Wallace (Rep) political journalist was just on the news. Trump gave a speech in Vegas last night full of "F" bombs.
Chris said Trump's interrogation on Omaba is completely out of line, and last night he hit the final nail in his coffin
