Guy Takes Story About 'Political Correctness' Poll To Task In Epic Viral Thread

Donald Trump ran his campaign on a platform that he doesn't conform to political correctness. His base ran with the idea and now the term is being twisted to mean a loss of free speech. But is it?


After being called out for implying Mexican immigrants are rapists, and openly mocking a man with physical disabilities, Trump famously said in 2016 while campaigning for the presidency:

I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. I've been challenged by so many people and I don't, frankly, have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn't have time, either.

So what did Trump mean by this statement? Could it be this?

The Washington Post

Writer A.R. Moxon, who goes by the Twitter handle Julius Goat, broke down what it really means to be politically correct after coming across a survey with NPR 52% of Americans are against the United States becoming any more politically correct.

Being held accountable is not the same as being silenced.

Having said that, I do know a thing or two about being too curvy to get things to fit properly.
