When conservatives use the term “political correctness,” the statement is practically meaningless. Anything they regard as liberal gets that label. Donald Trump is happy to have won Time magazines Person of the Year, but he thinks it’s “politically correct” to call it that.
President-elect Donald Trump on Thursday bragged about being named Time magazine’s Person of the Year, but criticized the title of the honor as “politically correct.”
“I was lucky enough to receive the Time Person of the Year,” Trump said in Des Moines, Iowa, the third rally on his “Thank You” victory tour. “They used to call it ‘Man of the Year,’ but they can’t do that anymore, so they call it ‘person.’ They want to be politically correct. That’s OK.”
Apparently it’s “politically correct” to acknowledge that women also win the award and it’s inaccurate to label them the man of the year. That isn’t politically correct, it’s just plain correct. But accuracy is something Trump could not possibly care any less about. Of course, he also thinks it’s “politically correct” to say that sexually assaulting women by grabbing their pussies against their will as well.
