How to use correctness in a sentence?

  1. Tim Clemente:

    The fact that we can’t even look at somebody’s heritage or religious background in a Muslim that’s a Muslim extremist – that’s what we need to look for, to exclude the FBI from looking in that direction is a mistake. We’ve gone so far in political correctness to stay away from the term ‘profiling’ that we can’t do a regular investigation.

  2. Donald Trump:

    The Kentuky( sic) Derby decision was not a good one, it was a rough and tumble race on a wet and sloppy track, actually, a beautiful thing to watch. Only in these days of political correctness could such an overturn occur. The best horse did NOT win the Kentucky Derby - not even close !

  3. Nathan Larson:

    A lot of people are tired of political correctness and being constrained by it, people prefer when there’s an outsider who doesn’t have anything to lose and is willing to say what’s on a lot of people’s minds.

  4. Donald Trump:

    Political correctness is killing us. if I got close, I wouldn't ever do it.

  5. Army Col. Robert Maginnis:

    I think the seriousness Mattis will bring to this building will be translated through every policy we begin to execute, i think he will put a stamp on the organization that will be positive – no more political correctness, just a focus on being warriors.
