Matthews: You’d never say that about a white person!

Chris Matthews was talking up the birther thing tonight as if it just started yesterday, arguing that birthers are nothing more than petty racists. He brought Trump into the conversation, of course, noting that Trump was now suggesting that Obama wasn’t smart enough to get into Harvard and must’ve had help.

Bush is in fact a white person:
