<p>Acting more like a doorman than a journalist during PBS coverage of the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, <em>CBS This Morning</em> co-host Charlie Rose invited former Attorney General Eric Holder to blast Donald Trump: <strong>&ldquo;You also said that Donald Trump, you questioned his gray matter. You mean he&rsquo;s not smart enough to be president?&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Holder replied: &ldquo;Yeah, I wonder. You know, I sometimes think that he hides behind a certain bravado to hide a lack of substance that he has....he seems to me to be a very shallow man.&rdquo; Rather challenge the nasty personal attack or lecture Holder to tone down the rhetoric, Rose urged him to continue: <strong>&ldquo;And because you don&#39;t see any intellectual interest, you don&#39;t see anything other than a businessman?&rdquo;</strong></p>
