and, what's better is that we can blame them for every bad thing that happens in the country, regardless of the facts that indicate the problems were present and festering long before he came into office...

Honestly, I personally dislike this framing and approach.
For the past eight years I've raged against people who were being obtuse and obstructionist simply for the sake of doing so - or doing so purely out of political spite and with political motives.
The idea of doing so now, myself, simply because I can is not at all appealing.
I myself won't be attacking conservatives nor Trump just because they're conservatives or Trump. That's not principled or moral at all. If I agree with them, I'll say so. If I disagree, I'll say so as well.
That's not to say I won't fight viciously - I'll just make sure I fight properly.

So you think that as soon as trump is sworn in, suddenly all conservatives become "pc"?
I think your a little confused, someone being politically correct has nothing to do with what party happens to be in office. It describes policy and points of view that do not target specific groups of people.
"The term political correctness (adjectivally: politically correct; commonly abbreviated to PC), in modern usage, is used to describe language, policies, or measures that are intended primarily not to offend or disadvantage any particular group of people in society. "
For example, if Trump came out after being signed in and says "all Muslims are terrorists" (not that he would) this would still be considered politically incorrect. It doesn't suddenly become pc because he holds office.
