Donald Trump is, by all accounts, a man who does not shy away from criticizing those he disagrees with.

In the wake of his election, Trump has received criticism for not denouncing his racist supporters in as harsh a manner as he criticized Hamilton or The New York Times.

As of this writing, Trump, since being elected, has published 12 tweets criticizing the media’s coverage of him, 3 criticizing the Broadway show Hamilton and 1 criticizing Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him on Saturday Night Live. He has not tweeted about the 700 reports of hate crimes committed between Nov. 9 and Nov. 26. He has also not tweeted about the racist “alt-right” conference in Washington, in which dozens of Trump supporters Nazi saluted and celebrated his victory.

Outside of Twitter, Trump has made statements denouncing hate crimes and the alt-right. On 60 Minutes, Trump told those committing hate crimes to “Stop it.” His transition team also issued a statement on the National Policy Institute conference but did not mention the organization by name. In a Nov. 23 interview with The New York Times, Trump said, “I dont want to energize the group, and I disavow the group,” in reference to the alt-right.

Trump’s denouncements of racist groups, though he has made them, are certainly less spirited than denouncements he’s issued about a number of topics and people in the past, ranging from Rosie O’Donnell to Macy’s Department Stores.

Below, we’ve gathered a list of things that Trump has criticized and disavowed more harshly than his most racist supporters.

Rosie O’Donnell

Donald Trump’s 10-year-long feud with Rosie O’Donnell has been well documented in the press. Trump has called O’Donnell “disgusting,” “a degenerate” and said she has a “fat, ugly face” and that he wanted to sue her and “take some money out of her fat-ass pockets.”

A search shows that Trump has mentioned O’Donnell on Twitter 60 times 60 more times than he has tweeted condemnation at his supporters like NPI head Richard Spencer, who believes in “peaceful ethnic cleansing.

Macy’s Department Stores

In July 2015, Macy’s “discontinued” it’s business relationship with Trump following his comments about Mexican immigrants being “rapists.” Trump responded by issuing a statement about the department store on Instagram and criticizing the company for a $650,000 settlement it paid over alleged racial profiling.

The then-nominee said that Macy’s stores are “bad for U.S.A.” something he has yet to say about groups who support him like the NPI, whose president stated that the institute’s goal is an “ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans… a new society based on very different ideals than, say, the Declaration of Independence.”

President-elect Trump has made many statements claiming he’s been treated unfairly in the press. At a campaign event in July he referred to journalists as “terrible people,” which is something he has not called those committing hate crimes following the election.

Trump has also tweeted several harsh statements about individual journalists on both sides of the political aisle.

John McCain

Aside from claiming that Senator John McCain was not a war hero because he was captured in July 2015, Trump has hurled negative remarks at the former presidential nominee on Twitter several times.

In one tweet, Trump called McCain, “very foul mouthed” a label he has not pointed toward supporters drawing swastikas or one who reportedly shouted, “They’ll deport you soon, don’t worry, you fucking terrorist” at an Uber driver.

Neil Young and “Rockin’ In The Free World”

Trump became upset with the “Rockin’ In The Free World” musician when his campaign was asked to stop using the song during events. Trump, from the campaign trail, shot off three tweets in one day calling Young a hypocrite and stating that he “Didn’t love [the song] anyway].”

Young’s request to not use the song elicited a harsher Twitter response in Trump than the NPI conference in Washington in which a group celebrating his election referred to America as “…until this past generation a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity.”

Trump claims to “believe in vaccinations” but has been outspoken about multiple shots at once and their link to autism. The president-elect has brought up his debunked vaccine theory at a GOP debate in September and has denounced certain types of vaccinations on Twitter since 2012.

Trump’s harsh (and unfounded) condemnation of vaccines greatly outweighs his condemnation of groups like the National Policy Institute, whose president used the term “Lgenpresse” to refer to the mainstream media on Nov. 21. Lgenpresse is a word once invoked by the Nazi party to refer to their critics in the press.

The musical Hamilton

Trump blasted Broadway’s smash hit Hamilton three separate times on Twitter, following an incident in which VP-elect Mike Pence was booed by audience members and respectfully addressed by the cast following the show’s bows on Nov. 18.

Trump took to Twitter to call the cast “very rude” and state that the show is “highly overrated.” Trump, of course, has yet to call hateful messages like the swastikas painted on playground equipment in Brooklyn “very rude” on the same platform.

Saturday Night Live

Trump’s recent feud with Saturday Night Live seems to have severed his positive experience hosting in 2015. Trump is not a fan of Alec Baldwin’s impersonation of him and feels the show has gone down in quality.

Trump, who tweeted “Equal time for us?” following the Nov. 19 show, has not spent an equal amount of time denouncing racist messages left in schools around the country following his election, like one in a Georgia high school that stated a teacher should “hang [her]self” with her headscarf.

Mark Cuban

Fellow billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has had an on-again, off-again relationship with Trump. President-elect Trump has spent hours on Twitter denouncing the talents and personality of Cuban, calling him an “asshole” and a “weak man with a big mouth.”

Trump has not called anyone involved with the NPI (whose president Richard Spencer referred to Martin Luther King Jr. as “a fraud and degenerate“) an asshole.

Climate change

Donald Trump’s views on climate change have been widely reported on he has said it is a Chinese hoax. Since 2011, the president-elect has criticized climate science and those who support it on Twitter. Trump has referred to climate change as “bullshit” that “has got to stop” a firm directive he hasn’t used on the more than 700 reported hate crimes committed between November 9 and November 16.

As of this writing, President-elect Trump has tweeted 56 times. He has yet to strongly condemn hateful messages, hate crimes or groups like the NPI who support “peaceful ethnic cleansing.”
