Minority Leader Harry Reid slammed Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on the Senate floor Thursday for comments Scalia made about African American students during oral arguments in Fisher v. University of Texas, saying “these ideas that he pronounced yesterday are racist in application, if not in intent.”“The only difference between the ideas endorsed by [Donald] Trump and Scalia, is that Scalia has a robe and a lifetime appointment,” Reid said.
