From the January 7 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor:
BILL O'REILLY (HOST): Hi, I'm Bill O'Reilly. Thanks for watching us tonight. Can Trump win? That's the subject of this evening's Talking Points Memo. Perhaps for the first time in memory, the left wing media and the Republican party establishment agree on something. It would be bad if Donald Trump is the GOP presidential nominee. The liberal media despises Mr. Trump because he openly mocks their values or lack of thereof. And the Republicans, some of them, don't believe Trump can defeat Hillary Clinton.
Despite that, Trump continues to dominate the national GOP polling. The reason for that is that many Americans are fed up with what has happened to America. They're tired of standard politicians lying to them and they believe Trump will blow up the entire system. But there's more. In a Wall Street Journal column today, Danielle Henninger puts forth that political correctness has alienated so many Americans that the anti-PC guy Trump is acceptable no matter what he says. Mr. Henninger points to phrases like gender neutral, diverse, inclusive, multiculturalism, racism, sexism, and on and on. I don't know about you but I'm fed up with that garbage because it's used to hurt people. The politically correct crowd often fires vile accusations toward those they don't like. Folks who oppose gay marriage, for example are homophobic. People who want a responsible welfare system are anti-poor. Americans who believe that the enormous out-of-wedlock African-American birth rate is hurting the country are anti-black. That's vile stuff and clear-thinking people, Americans know it. Thus, when a guy like Trump actually attacks politically correct madness, he gains devoted followers. The truth is that Donald Trump could win the Republican nomination but he will still have to moderate his tone a bit and he will have to get more specific in his problem-solving vision. But I believe he's got a chance. And if he does win, it will be the most incredible political upset in history. And that's the memo.
