The Chrome extension that makes Republicans palatable (by replacing 'political correctness' with 'treating people with respect')

Much has been written about Donald Trump in recent days after he responded to a question about misogynistic remarks he made in the past by saying the big problem the US has is "being politically correct".

This comment quickly snowballed into Trump appearing to suggest Megyn Kelly was on her period when she questioned him during the Republican debate, Trump being dis-invited from speaking at a conservative event, later claiming he meant the Fox News host had been bleeding out of her nose (right...), and his long-serving political adviser quitting because, and we quote, the "Megyn Kelly sh-t" was "f--ing crazy" and "killing us".


This was all too much for New Zealander Byron Clark, who rejigged his browser to automatically replace the words "political correctness" with "treating people with respect" (here is, in part, why).

He later made an actual Chrome extension so that we can all bask in this calmer, more respectful, state of affairs.

We think you'll agree it's a massive improvement.
