Clin­ton right to de­nounce big­otry

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Ed Sch­nei­der, Bal­ti­more

Don­ald Trump says ter­ri­ble things about His­pan­ics and Mus­lims, and he makes racist and misog­y­nist com­ments. He fails to de­nounce the white su­prem­a­cists who sup­port him.

His­pan­ics, women and blacks over­whelm­ingly sup­port Hil­lary Clin­ton. Mr. Trump’s sup­port­ers don’t ap­pear to have a prob­lem with his trash­ing a large per­cent­age of the U.S. pop­u­la­tion — at least, any ob­jec­tions they have to his state­ments are not reported.

But when Ms. Clin­ton calls Mr. Trump’s over­whelm­ingly white vot­ers on the big­otry they’re sup­port­ing in him, they and the press de­nounce her. An­other word be­sides big­otry comes to mind: hypocrisy.
