Video: Bernie Sanders: Trump Won Because People Are ‘Tired’ of ‘Politically Correct Rhetoric’

Alex Griswold, Mediaite, December 14, 2016


Sanders said, “I think he said some outrageous and painful things, but I think people are tired of the same old politically correct rhetoric, and they believe that he was speaking from his heart and willing to take on everybody.”

Sanders’ definition of political correctness was someone different than its usual meaning. “It means you have a set of talking points which have been poll-tested and focus-group-tested and that’s what you say rather than what’s really going on. And often, what you are not allowed to say are things which offend very powerful people,” he said.
