Donald Trump Bristles at Racism Allegations, Tries to Downplay Obama Comments

by at . Comments

Bob Schieffer of CBS' Face the Nation and that network's Evening News made headlines last night when he flat-out called Donald Trump a racist.

At issue? Trump's questioning of President Obama's birth certificate and later his academic record, criticisms Schieffer says have racist undertones.

The Donald was far from pleased with Bob's assessment.

Moments ago, he told 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's scathing statement against Trump came last night in response to Trump's insinuation that Obama may not have had the grades to get into Harvard.

Schieffer said, "That's 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."

Asked if he was implying Obama got into Harvard via affirmative action, Trump said: "Affirmative action is out there. It's a program that is available."

"I have no idea whether it applies in this case. I'm not suggesting anything. Grades are the least important aspect of being president. It's not a big subject."

Trump insists he's not racist and wouldn't say if he supports or opposes affirmative action. But he's clearly trying to douse some of the flames he ignited.

What do you think? Is Trump racist?

Obama isn't a good president but if Donald Trump was president, the country would probably be very profitable but at a price or to put it bluntly Trump knows how to make money but he has no compassion or PR tact.

Of course he's racist, with all that shit he spouts about the Chinese and this relentless pestering of the President... Open your eyes, naive America.
If this man (or Sarah Palin) becomes president, I will leave and never return to America.

This is a case when you push an issue too far and it goes overboard. With the internet and the media today these things can get out of hand quickly and gain followers. People need to dot their I's and cross their T's before they start sprewing garbage. This is a lesson to all.
