DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): One of the things about woke is -- Can you explain it to your mom? Think about that. And I remember when president Trump was running, and this was before he won in 2016, he used to get standing ovations initially when he would say, "Political correctness is ruining our country." And everybody that was clapping knew exactly what he meant, but it's sort of like the Supreme Court definition of pornography of you know it when you see it.

So the Democrats want to get you in an argument where you're having to define woke-is as if the Webster's dictionary is defining it, and it's not what it is. It could be a feeling, it could be a sense, and I wonder if Republicans or conservatives are going to have to define it more. She could be right. I don't know.
