Bob Schieffer didn't hold back in his criticism of Donald Trump on Wednesday's "CBS Evening News." In an unusually unvarnished comment, he accused Trump of peddling "racism" through his comments about President Obama's academic qualifications.
Trump has received substantial negative attention for saying that he is suspicious about how Obama was admitted to Columbia and Harvard. Schieffer told Katie Couric, "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 can hope that kind of comes to an end too, but we'll have to see."
