I have a few thoughts to share after South Carolina.
I have been trying to understand the Trump phenomenon since his ascent. Those who support him tell me two things: “He tells it like it is” and “He’s strong.”
When I probe further it becomes clear that people are responding to his blunt, unrehearsed language, statements that have not been focus-tested. In short, Trump’s language is anti-PC. He says things that are outrageous. But their very outrageousness places them outside of the accepted PC word usage.
