CBS's Bob Schieffer Says Donald Trump Is Racist For Wanting To See Obama's Grades

(By Noel Sheppard, NewsBusters.org) - 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":

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."
