“I want to go on to what Donald Trump said after he said this is out and everything. He said, we need to look at his grades and see if the – 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’s black,” Shieffer said.
“This is an 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.”
Glenn disagreed with Schieffer’s comments, and said that it had nothing to do with Obama’s race to look at his records. Glenn said that he had wanted to see Hillary Clinton’s term paper, which was written in part on Saul Alinsky’s “Rules of Radicals”.
Pat also pointed out that people questioned Bush’s records in school and his intelligence, but no one attributed it to racism.
“Why can’t we see a man’s records? I’d say the same thing about George W. Bush, the same thing about Bill and Hillary Clinton, the same thing about Ronald Reagan,” Glenn said.
