Joy Behar: Donald Trump 'Racist' For Questioning How President Obama Got Into Harvard!

Wed, April 27, 2011 4:14pm EDT by 47 Comments

Whoopi Goldberg agrees with her View talk mate, accusing Donald of showing ‘insane disrespect’ with his birther rants — and for slamming the president’s qualifications!

Joy Behar says Donald Trump has gone too far in knocking President Obama and questioning how he got his degrees from Harvard and Columbia.

“It’s very racist,” Joy says, adding that she knows why Donald is so riled up.

“Obama came from humble beginnings,” Joy says on the ABC show. [Donald] says he can’t believe he got into Harvard …in other words he is saying he didn’t get into Harvard on his own, he didn’t write his own book. Obama came from humble beginnings and wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Au contraire — Donald was! He can’t understand. How come I can’t get into Harvard and this guy can?” Donald “can’t fathom that a black man can be that smart!”

The View‘s host Whoopi Goldberg agrees: “It’s very difficult on a daily basis to see this stuff. Being black, you say ‘Oh, this is racist!’ nine thousand people say, ‘Oh no, you’re playing the race card. Well, I’m playing the damn card now.”

She also says that Donald’s questions about whether the president was born in the United States and how he got into elite colleges makes America a laughingstock around the world., “You know how Donald is always saying they are laughing at us? Here’s one of the reasons people are laughing at us — well, when you show such insane disrespect to the president of our country, people in others countries think we are idiots. You’re helping to perpetuate the idea that this country is a little idiotic.”

The White House released the president’s original Hawaii birth certificate this morning, and Donald immediately took credit for forcing the move.

“I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully, hopefully, getting rid of this issue,” he told reporters after landing in the early primary state of New Hampshire, according to ABC News.

Whoopi grudgingly gave Donald credit as well.

“If he had not sort of shown his ass and made this a ridiculous focus, this probably would not have happened. Donald can take some credit for making this happen, making the president say. ‘Here it is, back off.’ He can take that credit.”

What do we think HollywoodLifers? Is Donald Trump a racist?

Donald Trump has asked what EVERY American Should have asked and had information on several years ago BEFORE Obama was elected. Why do these talking heads appear to be not only bathed in ignorance..they wish simply to bury any possibility of a response…The Snake Oil salesman Obama..certainly is groundbreaking..and has in many ways broken the spirit of truth replaced with flagrant disregard…hey…I like many of us want the TRUTH NOW…show us the transcripts or your all fakes.

How can joy behar call him racist, because he uses his right for free speech. He happens to be 50% white. Behar and whoopi bring up the race card every chance they get, accusing eveyone of being racist. She can ask questions about george w life and service its ok, but god forbid(sorry she doesnt believe in god) let trump ask about obama. There are more americans than him, that would like to know. Whats the big deal about asking a question about someone working for you. We are paying his salary and by taking the job as president he is open game RIGHT JOY BEHAR.

Trump would’ve made a good slave master. He would not have seen anything wrong with it …. He’d give us almost clean water to drink, his fresh scraps to eat, made sure he only took the prettiest females and never speak of freedom. He’s the Master…. of everybody under his name / logo. If you thought I meant blacks only…. think again. He doesn’t give a crap about nobody, especially non-whites.

You people are blowing this out of proportion because you are scared. The democrats want to be led. They want the US to be the primary employer and strip everything this country was based on. We are a young country that has risen to world super power status, yet you think the system is broken? Republicans are not all racist and besides their silly influence from the religion department I agree with the party. The good news is that there are now more white men like myself that will grow tired of squaking screechy old bats like Joy and as liberal Hollywood attacks the right, the public will soon get sick of their spins and side with trump. So keep up the good work and slander every white man for posing a question and watch Obama lose the next election. People like Joy only further my negative opinion from the insane left. There are great ideas on both political parties but the insane few on the left annoy me and their good points fall on deaf ears. White people are getting very annoyed with constantly being called racist for not agreeing with the Hollywood left. Their tactics will soon back fire and sway the independant vote to the right.

Really!!! What white people are sick of being called racist! That’s a joke right…The sense of entitlement in your comment is insulting. How many slaves did your ancestors own? Trump is racist and we are laughing that he is running for the presidency!! He is a man who couldn’t commit to his wives do you think we will trust him in leadership, the silver spoon priviledge only goes so far.

calling him racist when there are valid arguments available only shows ignorance of the issues and your own failings.

President Obama is mixed race not black.

if you want to learn to make a valid argument take a forensics course and learn proper debating skills.

personalities have no place in a debate and even in an argument are a sure way to lose because you are not helping your own cause and only looking desperate when you have to resort to insults.

Calling someone racist is the last resort of someone who comes to a debate or argument unprepared.

Donald Trump is like the bad guy Biff Tannen from Back to the Future II! Like Biff from that film, he turn the courthouse into a casino and built a nearby toxic waste disposal and nuclear plant, via winning on races with his sports almanac, given from his older self c.2015. He even killed George McFly in order to win his love to Lorraine, which is suppose to be Marty McFly’s mom.

Fan of the Back to the Future trilogy.

I encourage all Americans who are as embarrassed and deeply offended by Donald Trump’s behavior towards our President as I am, to immediately boycott NBC programming for the next 30 days or until such time that network ratings fall to a level that NBC executives (who, in my opinion, have condoned and therefore encouraged his bad behavior) have no other alternative other than to “FIRE” Trump and cancel his two bit reality show, The Celebrity Apprentice. Since money seems to be the only language that poor imitation of a man and NBC executives speak and comprehend, the only way to assist them all in modifying their behavior is to hurt them in the pocket book. This also includes not supporting any of Trump’s other business ventures (e.g., hotels, casinos, fake university, etc.). Calls can also be made to one or more of the show’s sponsors, which include, but may not be limited to: 7-Up, OnStar, Australian Gold, Camping World, ACN, Omaha Steaks, and Farouk Hair Systems. In addition, since Comcast now owns 51% of NBC Universal while GE owns 49%. I urge you all to FLOOD their executive office with telephone calls: 212-664-4444; faxes: 212-664-4085; and letters: GE Building, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York City, New York 10112 expressing your dissatisfaction with Trump’s outrageous behavior and calling for his immediate termination and the cancellation of The Celebrity Apprentice. Key contacts are: Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Comcast Corporation; Stephen B. Burke, Chief Executive Officer, NBCUniversal and Executive Vice President, Comcast Corporation; Ron Meyer, President and Chief Operating Officer, Universal Studios; Robert Greenblatt (Chairman, NBCUniversal Television Entertainment). Furthermore, suspended support of the show’s sponsors and their products, as well as both GE and Comcast product offerings will send a definitive message. Remember, there IS power in numbers so please do not assume others will do what we all should do – please take action now and send a very strong message that there is no place for racism in our society and we will not sit idly by as proud U.S. citizens and watch the President of the most powerful nation on the planet be openly disrespected any longer!!!

He is just a bit smarter than the average republicans who look up on him because of his billions of ‘stolen’ money. He is a master of deception and he has screwed the bankruptcy laws to advantage himself.

His actions and words speaks volumes about what he thinks about African Americans and people of color, not only about Obama but also about the people of color in the Republican Party, there is an old saying: what you hear a person say about someone else is what they say about you behind your back. Eat,feast and laugh with you in front of your face but break your glass, plate and throw away the silverware you used after the party is over. The Donald is too dumb to realize that what he is doing and saying affects his whole party. Steele, West, Cain, M. Rubio, some of the Repub Latino governors that was just elected last election, these people think that they have arrived and is part of something the last laugh is on them it’s about them alright and against them,too. There is no doubt, DT really doesn’t care because he thinks that his money insulates him from criticism from the rest of the world. The Donald’s actions points to the assumption that people of color are inferior to white people.

“Carnival Barker” as applied to Donald Trump, demeans carnival barkers the world over. Donald Trump is the biggest narcissistic bigot ever to present himself (THROUGH THE MEDIA)to garner publicity. He “takes credit” for what? WHen our President first ran, he provided the proper authorities with LEGAL PROOF of his birthright to run for the land’s highest office. And that’s not good enough for Trump, Palin, et al??? Trumps self-glorifying comments this morning are nothing more than a huge plug for his half-baked “reality” TV show, and Trump – like his TV show – portrays anything but reality. His arrogance is only exceeded by the ridiculousness of that road-kill he wears on his severely balding head. Every American who thinks this guy has something to offer besides self-agrandizement, should be ashamed at how this idiot demeans the America we believe to be a fair and just nation. That noise you hear in the background – that’s the rest of the world laughing at America for allowing this insanity an ounce of free publicity. An absolute disgrace of what this country purports to be all about.

Don’t believe “the Donald” is racist, but no one really knows for sure. All of us have an element of racism in us, especially the likes of the Whoopi’s of the world. But without a question, someone (BHO) who refuses to prove they have a legitimate claim to be president, black or white, has a severe issue. This matter should have been settled before Obama’s name ever went on the ballots. However, after the fact the President owes Americans the truth. Because if he is not a legally sitting president, everything he has signed or done should be made “null and void”. I guess my though is this, Blacks or African American or what ever they are calling themselves now are “segregationists”. They themselves chose to be separate from the rest of America by labeling themselves Afican American, etc., instead of American. If they are interested in equality, then they should start by identifying themselves as simply “Americans”. But, of course, this would take away their trump card of yelling “racist”.

your comment smacks of ignorance and contempt. If it were up to white America, black people would be neither American / African American – and more that ugly term whites coined and use when trolling. From my experience ‘African Americans’ are and see themselves as American but recognize they have been displaced and disregarded by white America. Its well documented that white America has robbed, murdered and raped the African-ness out of them for centuries – and whites still have the nerve to ‘carry on’ the bullsh** today. The legacy of these crimes are echoed in both your and donald trumps hateful and ignorant rantings.

racism is wrong, in any form. I just don’t get it anymore. comments like “We will not let off to remind white people of their malignant and subconscious racist tendencies” implies that all white people have a certain quality. If that were true, it is the same as saying an entire race share negative traits because of the color of their skin. It perpetuates racism in itself. While unfortunately racism will never go away, we have to work together to squash the ideas that keep it going. You can’t fight racism with racism, as it only validates the idea. The african american community were among the first Americans. Regardless of them being “brought here” they have helped to build and defend this country since it’s begining. Don’t focus on the negative people out there and turn into one of them by making similar claims about their group. It is just counterproductive. If somebody makes racist comments against african americans, it is because they are ignorant and need to be educated. So when you just sum up their race with negative traits, all you do is let them turn the table back around on you.

The first question is WHY does the first African American president of the United States of America have to sucomb to such bigotry? The answer to this question is that CHANGE is never accepted by racism or the status quo. Racists such as Donald Trump who are afraid of any change that may upset their wealth or the mundane normalcy of their existence in this nation of the free and the brave. This nation was supposed to be founded on truth and the acceptance of our tired and our poor, our humbled masses yearning to breathe free! This country was founded as a melting pot for all!
Maybe if past presidents had been questioned on whether their backgrounds were Polish, Scottish, Irish or Swedish, we wouldn’t need to have this conversation! Well the fact of the matter is past presidents were not asked about where they came from.

It’s going to get worse for them. We have the Martin Luther King, Jr’s, the Nelson Mandela’s, we have Barack Obama. Hey I could even throw in the Mahatma Ghandi for all the colored people of the world. While they nurture the Hitlers, the Ku Klax Klan, Apartheid, and all manner of institutionalized hate and just plain evil against all the other races of people. All ye Racists, wonder not about your fate, you will lose all the time, it’s the Tao, ask what that means from the Chinese.
