Obama Advisor to Trump: Forget About Getting His College Transcripts

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(WASHINGTON) -- A senior White House advisor has a message for Donald Trump: forget about it.

Not content with having President Obama produce his long-form birth certificate to prove that he was born in Hawaii, Trump still wants the commander in chief to release his college transcripts to prove what "a terrible student" Trump alleges he was at Columbia University and Harvard Law School.

If Trump expects that will happen, he'll be waiting a long time, according to Valerie Jarrett.

The president's advisor told SiriusXM Radio's The Joe Madison Show Thursday, "We know this is nonsense.  [Obama's] almost 50 years old and he's president of the United States and I don't think anybody would debate his intelligence and so now we need to get serious."

CBS veteran correspondent Bob Schieffer says that Trump's questions about Obama's college and law school record smack of bigotry, adding, "This is an ugly strain of racism that's running through this whole thing."
