Apparently “we cannot afford to be so politically correct anymore”. Or so presidential hopeful Donald Trump professes.
Why? We're not quite sure, but Samantha Bee and her Full Frontal team are endeavouring to find out. According to a couple of Trump supporters they caught leaving the National Republican Convention, the shackles of empathy and mutual respect are “tearing down the US”.
“It's damaged our country so badly,” one fan toting a 'Make America Great Again' poster explains.
“It’s a prison of the mind, it’s a prison of the soul,” another philosophises.
However, when probed about exactly what things they wish they could say but can’t, one free speech warrior was left without words, conceding, "On most things you can say them politely."
Watch Full Frontal with Samantha Bee Tuesdays at 8pm (AEST) on SBS 2. All episodes are available earlier that day on SBS On Demand.
