Chris Matthews and Clarence Page: Trump Must Be Talking About Bush When He Says “How Did He Get Into a Good School” (Chuckle, Chuckle)

Chris Matthews Ten Minutes Later: No One Would Ever Question the Academic Chops of a White President!

Bumped For Hot Video: At the Right Scoop.

No, he really said this. Ten minutes apart.

First, bringing up Transcriptism, Clarence Page chuckled that “He [Trump] must have his presidents mixed up,” meaning it must be Bush who needed special help to get into Yale (and Harvard Business).

They both had themselves a laugh at that. How dumb Bush is! They’ve been saying that for ten years, of course.

Then, next segment, still marveling that only a racist could question a president’s academic ability, he said, quote, “They would never say this about a white president!!!”

Um? Didn’t you? Like five minutes ago?

Didn’t you? For ten years straight?

And then, in case you completely forgot about the last ten years, I repeat: Didn’t you just five minutes ago?

This is not about “racism.” This is simply about their certainty that Bush was dumb and Obama is smart.

I’m not so sure. Am I racist?

Why? Because I’m supposed to just assume that someone who gets into an Ivy school is smart, the same as Matthews and Page don’t as regards Bush?

And let me point out: by Chris Matthews apparent rule, it would in fact be racist of Page to make this joke, since his unstated premise seems to be you can only talk smack about a president of your own race.
