“The people are tired of this political correctness when things are said that are totally fine…. It is out of control. It is gridlock with their mouths….” --- Donald Trump
“I disagree with a lot of things I’ve watched in politics over the years, that’s why I’m running…. ,” “And that may make me less popular with politicians. But I have to be honest. I didn’t get there by doing it the way a lot of these people do it….” --- Donald Trump
“People want people to represent them who are going to stick up for what they believe in…. Politicians have been very weak and very ineffective over the last quite long period of time….” --- Donald Trump
The Donald’s push-back type message was contained in a very succinct NY Times article; and it is encapsulated in these three short paragraphs: “ Donald J. Trump has some advice for panicked Republicans in Washington who are melting down over his most incendiary statements: Man up…. ‘Politicians are so politically correct anymore, they can’t breathe,’ Mr. Trump said in an interview Tuesday afternoon as fellow Republicans forcefully protested his ethnically charged criticism of a federal judge overseeing a lawsuit against the defunct Trump University…. ‘The people are tired of this political correctness when things are said that are totally fine,” he said during an interlude in a day of exceptional stress in the Trump campaign. “It is out of control. It is gridlock with their mouths.’…” (See “Donald Trump’s Advice to Panicked Republicans: Man Up” by Carl Hulse, 6/8/16, NY Times [http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/09/us/politics/donald-trump-republicans.html?_r=0]; that article was also featured on the Microsoft News Feed [http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/donald-trump%e2%80%99s-advice-to-panicked-republicans-man-up/ar-AAgOM49?ocid=spartandhp] ).
Later on in the article, Timesman Carl Hulse went on to make note of the following: “…. anyone thinking that Mr. Trump is going to suddenly adopt a more cautious, strategic approach yearned for by election-conscious congressional Republicans is likely to be disappointed. He wrinkled his nose in disgust at the mere mention of the word “pivot,” though he conceded he wants to get on to broader discussion of the economy…. In his view, it is clear that his way has worked and the establishment’s has failed. After all, he vanquished every senator, governor or former governor who challenged him for the party’s nomination…. ‘I disagree with a lot of things I’ve watched in politics over the years, that’s why I’m running,’ Mr. Trump said over a meatball lunch he barely touched in the restaurant of Trump Tower. ‘And that may make me less popular with politicians. But I have to be honest. I didn’t get there by doing it the way a lot of these people do it.’…”
GOP ESTABLISHMENT CRITIQUE OF TRUMP & TRUMP’S PUSH-BACK AGAINST IT
Also part of the Times article was this: “Back in Washington, congressional Republicans were in a fever, with Speaker Paul D. Ryan, a reluctant Trump convert to begin with, calling Mr. Trump’s comments about the judge “the textbook definition” of racism. Senator Mitch McConnell, the Kentucky Republican and majority leader, denounced Mr. Trump’s crusade against Judge Curiel as stupid and urged him to apologize. Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois withdrew his endorsement, and others were pondering it…. Mr. Trump, arms crossed tightly across his chest during lunch, was aggrieved and considered some of the Republican pushback inappropriate and unhelpful — though he did not want to address specific critics. He insisted that he is anything but a racist and, with his usual rebuttal by the numbers, stressed that voters have rewarded his outspokenness with a record haul of primary votes while Washington is held in dismal regard…. As the primary season came to an odd close with him under Republican fire in the nation’s capital — an unheard-of spectacle in the last half century of presidential politics — Mr. Trump took some time to huddle with his campaign team. His daughter Ivanka, a trusted adviser, was close at hand, as was his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, his press secretary, Hope Hicks, and his special counsel, Michael Cohen…. ‘People want people to represent them who are going to stick up for what they believe in,” Mr. Trump said. “Politicians have been very weak and very ineffective over the last quite long period of time.’…”
