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."

tgrfan42069 1 day ago nothing racist about questioning how a guy who got crappy grades at one college all of a sudden got accepted into Harvard.trump better get used to this though..thats what happens when you run against mr black president

-----------------------------------------------------------

If Chump was impartial he would have questioned how W got through Yale without any help. That's one of life's greatest mysteries.

Again, I hope the ******gers encourage Trump to blow every last dime on his campaign. The fact that he's the cream of the crop now for the republicans speaks volumes. He's going to need more than the kind of tutoring that can get you through Harvard if he wants to talk about the real issues. He never struck me as well educated himself.
Who would he appoint to his cabinet, Donny Dr. and Baron?

Most people confuse racism with prejudice. Anyone can be prejudice, but Read Dr. Francis Cress Welssing - The Isis Papers to discover that there is ONLY one form of racism - White Supremecy - Descendant from the Indo-Aryan cast system in which more power and prestige was given based on lighter color. Racism is a system, not a personal view and those whom support that system by personal views or otherwise are racist. Watch Dave Chappell - to see a Black Racist (as he portrays a Blind Black KKK member - by definition this is what a Black Racist would be).

It is a shame that "TMZ" has to attract individuals, on both sides of the spectrum, who have to resort to name calling in an attempt to get their point across. The internet has become a haven for conservative and liberal zealots who delve in shadows and generate hate. Let us remember that this is and will remain a democracy, in spite of them.

I have lost all respect for Mr. Trump, not just because of this recent incident but all the fights he picks with everyone. He is worse than a woman when it comes to petty bickering. Of course we know he is a red neck, you can just look at his neck and tell that and as you know all red necks are racists, that is why they are red necks. I can see Trump in a wife beater. Wonder what kind of grades his kids got in school, they must have graduated at the top of their class. Anyway, Trump is just trying to get ratings for his boring reality show, every year about this time he picks a fight with someone but it still does not help his ratings. Oh Trump, you ought to just trump off with your ugly wife who looks like a dragon.

Trump doesn't need drugs to act like Charlie Sheen....it comes naturally. If you want to know how great Trump is all you have to do is ask him.

Note to Marius.....Trump is not one of America's Richest Men. He has been claiming to be a billionaire for years but his books don't add up according to Forbes. I am sure he knows Oprah is worth at least 3 times what he is. Don't be surprised if Tyler Perry catches up. Of course Trump is a bigot....in my opinion.

Mr. Trump has bigger things to worry about other than running for the presidency of the United States. His health! He's a heart attack / stroke waiting to happen. Mr. Trump- put first things first like your health which obviously needS an overhaul!

The Donald is an elitist, racist punk. No one should be surprised by him shooting off his mouth. His ego is making a fool of him and he's showing his true colors. It's extremely unfortunate that the media wants ratings more than facts thus providing him a platform to spew his factually incorrect accusations. He will cause damage to NBC, his business interests when Americans with a pulse begin to boycott his hotels, resorts and advertisers pull schedules from NBC.

"But I have no idea whether it applies in this case. I'm not suggesting anything."
Shows one what a racist idiot he is. He makes a a statement and claim, about something he claims he does not know anything about,
what a moronic dink and he wants to run for president- there is a lot for his racist ignorant mint to learn.

This is a fact and NOT debatable: Donald Trump is racist as hell! He was quoted as saying, in reference to a black accountant at Trump Plaza, “laziness is a trait in blacks.” He also complained about “Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day." And in 1973, Trump Management Corporation, was sued by the Justice Department for alleged racial discrimination, during a time when Trump was the company's president. And at Trump's Comedy Central Roast, Snoop Dogg referenced that case by joking about Trump's potential 2012 run for the White House by saying, "Why not? It wouldn't be the first time he pushed a black family out of their home."
