Good for Bob Schieffer.
He said what all of us know to be true, but none of the rest of us dared to say.
First, Donald Trump – ignoring all the evidence that’s been out there for three years – resurrects the old lie about President Obama not being born in the United States. Demands that he release the “long form” of his birth certificate.
Then, when Obama surprises everybody by doing just that, what does Trump do? Accuse Obama of being a “bad college student” – and demand that the president now release his college grades.
Forget the fact that Obama graduated from Columbia University, was accepted at Harvard Law School, graduated from Harvard Law magna cum laude and was elected President of the Harvard Law Review.
Did you ever hear ANYBODY ask for George Bush’s college records? Or Dick Cheney’s? Or even Bill Clinton’s?
No, no, no. And that’s where Bob Schieffer spoke out for all of us.
There’s only one reason Trump is questioning Barack Obama’s citizenship, authenticity, and intelligence. Because he’s black.
Thank you, Bob Schieffer, for telling it like it is: Donald Trump is a racist!
That’s my parting shot for today.
