Tom Nichols:

Sorry, Republicans. You can’t call out Northam for racism and give Trump a pass.

Trump’s record on race-related issues is abysmal. For years, he fueled birtherism to attack President Obama. He once argued that a federal judge, Gonzalo P. Curiel, couldn’t be impartial in a case involving Trump because, as Trump said, “He’s a Mexican. We’re building a wall between here and Mexico.” Early in his presidential candidacy, Trump called for a “total and complete ban on Muslims entering the country.” In office, he ruminated on the United States needing more immigrants from places such as Norway and fewer immigrants from “shithole” countries, referencing Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries.

Republicans' and right-wingers' hypocrisy is palpable.
