|Donald Trump: tackling the real threats to America|
When politicians criticize "political correctness," they're just using it as what one author calls "the mother of all straw men."
In the end, being politically correct is mostly about just being a polite, decent person. It's about being conscious of the words you use and open to changing your language to be more widely acceptable and respectful. Some people hate that, apparently, and Donald Trump's been waging a constant war on it.
