I don't think "standing up to political correctness" is the proper term. I'd go with "listening to political correctness and trying to work their viewpoints into actions that make financial sense."

Trump says the kind of things publicly that conservatives have been thinking and saying in private for years.

This is why I believe that no amount of corruption or incompetence on the part of Trump even matters. It's all about the backlash against political correctness and as long as he continues to deliver on that, he will continue to remain popular.

This is also why other Republicans like Pence won't suffice and why impeachment will never happen. Other Republicans are more or less a part of the Washington establishment and while they may fight for many of the same policies that Trump supports, they won't say the things Trump says.

Question is, is standing up to a "liberal PC agenda" the most important quality in a POTUS and if so, why?
Trump represents Trump. Period. He could not care less about this country nor the people in it. Political correctness is the least of our problems.

It is only one of MANY reasons that we like Trump. Oh, let me count the ways...........


PC is the enemy of frank and rational discourse, designed to intimidate and prevent dissention. It is a primary tool of totalitarians (liberals) and it is important to attack this vile, profane use of the language, which has been weaponized not to enlighten, but to suppress the truth.


Because Trump is simply the opposite of a liberal in every facet makes him very popular among conservatives.
