It is a phenomenon we must prepare ourselves to see a great deal more of after Donald Trump is inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States.

A local Republican politician in Connecticut was arrested for allegedly pinching a female employees genitals , after saying: I love this new world, I no longer have to be politically correct. A Georgia high-school teacher found a note on her desk telling her that her Muslim headscarf บิกินี่ facebook isnt allowed any more. The note continued: Why dont you tie it around your neck & hang yourself with it? It was signed: America. Trump and Puzder are not the only members of the incoming administration to have been associated with prejudiced views.
