David Letterman on Donald Trump

Via the Los Angeles Times:
Apparently, Dr. Phil is friends with the incendiary real estate tycoon, and Letterman asked what he thought of Trump's recent behavior. Dr. Phil tried to laugh it off, joking that maybe Trump was hoping to convert the White House into a condo. Letterman, who clearly had a bee in his bonnet, wasn't having it.

"It's all fun, it's all a circus, it's all a rodeo, until it starts to smack of racism. And then it's no longer fun," he said. Letterman was particularly troubled by Trump's latest line of inquiry -- how President Obama managed to transfer into Columbia, then gain acceptance at Harvard Law School. (For what it's worth, Trump also transferred into an Ivy League school, the University of Pennsylvania.)

Letterman asked Dr. Phil, point-blank, "Do you consider him to be a racist?"

"I do not," he replied.

"Well how can you say things like that if you're not a racist?"

It didn't end there, and Trump buddy Dr. Phil did not escape unscathed.
