Obama Rips Ole' Donald Chump A New One..
This year's White House Correspondents' Dinner featured Saturday Night Live's head writer, Seth Meyers. Mr. Meyers took the opportunity to not only roast real estate baron and potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump but to carve him up as well.
Here's what 'The Donald' said about Obama last week ..... "I heard he was a terrible student, terrible. How does a bad student go to Columbia and then to Harvard?" Trump told AP on Monday, according to a CBS News report. "I'm thinking about it, I'm certainly looking into it. Let him show his records."
While Trump's comments may have implied accusations as to President Obama's honesty, it is not necessarily clear that his inquiries are coming from a racist motivation.
"If the sons of his presumably wealthy friends couldn't get into Harvard with great credentials, then how could a person from Mr. Obama's humble background and academic achievements get into Harvard? Trump's inference is that Mr. Obama is a cipher, cannot be trusted and is concealing a dark secret," Dan Farber reported for CBS News.
Late night television host David Letterman accused real estate baron and potential Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of racism and suggested banning Trump from reappearing on his show unless he apologizes for his remarks.
