Chris Matthews and Pat Buchanan got into a long argument on Tuesday’s “Hardball” about President Obama’s academic credentials.
The clash was precipitated by (surprise, surprise) Donald Trump, who has said he doesn’t think Obama was qualified to go to Harvard or Columbia, and was suspicious about how he was admitted to both schools. Buchanan said he supported Trump’s curiosity.
“These are legitimate questions!” he exclaimed, wondering why Matthews was supporting what he called Obama’s “right to conceal” his academic records. He guessed that Obama’s rise through the Ivy League ranks was “affirmative action all the way.”
