CBS's Bob Schieffer said Wednesday that Donald Trump is racist because he wants to see Barack Obama's college grades.
Such was told to Katie Couric on the "Evening News" (video follows with partial transcript and commentary):
BOB SCHIEFFER: I want to go on to what, to what Donald Trump said after he said this is out and everything. He said, “We need to at [Obama’s] grades and see if he was a good enough student to get into Harvard Law School.” That’s just code for saying he got into law school because he was black.
This is a ugly strain of racism that’s running through this whole thing. We can hope that that kind of comes to an end, too, but we’ll have to see.
To be sure, this is the kind of idiocy one expects from the shills on MSNBC, but the host of "Face the Nation" should know better than to get into the gutter this way.
PBS's Tavis Smiley said Tuesday that the upcoming presidential race is going to be the most racist in history.
This is a perfect example of just how right Smiley was because everything any opponent of Obama's says in the next eighteen-plus months will be deemed by some media member as racist.
As David Byrne said many decades ago, same as it ever was.
