How to get rid of the “Trump effect”
I am a Trump supporter.
I have a soft spot for his campaign.
I don’t think he has any real policies or ideas.
I’ve never been in the business of running a business.
And I am not a fan of the media.
I do not trust any of them, especially Fox News, which has consistently failed to be fair or balanced, to be objective or balanced.
I think it’s really important to have a nonpartisan media.
And that is something that I am very excited about.
I believe that we need a media that is open and accountable.
But we also need to have an honest and objective media that we can trust, not just Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.
And as far as I’m concerned, there is a lot of overlap in our views.
There are many, many, I believe, good news organizations that are critical of the Trump administration.
And they are doing so by not using their power to suppress their own viewpoints, but to support our agenda.
So I think we are going to have to have very good reporting and honest journalism.
I am also a big believer in the First Amendment, which says that there are certain rights that we shouldn’t have, that are reserved for the people.
So if a group of people are going after somebody who is a First Amendment supporter, and they are going for the death penalty, I am going to stand up and fight that, but if they are trying to intimidate me, then they should go to jail.
And if they try to bully me into silence, well, I’m going to say, well it’s a First-Amendment issue, and that’s okay.
And it should be, because I believe in the right to freedom of speech.
And for that reason, I think the media should be free to report whatever they want.
But I am deeply concerned about the Trump effect.
Because it seems to be getting worse, and we’re seeing it everywhere, from Hollywood to Washington, D.C., from Hollywood.
There is a real, real danger that the media is going to become the mouthpiece of the president and his supporters.
And what I’m really concerned about is the media being controlled by a small group of billionaires, who will be able to dictate what people say.
And so the answer is, first, we have to take away their power.
And secondly, I want to ensure that the First- Amendment is protected.
And this is where we need to put in place a constitutional amendment that protects the First amendment.
Because the First, Second, and Fourteenth Amendments all guarantee that the rights of the press are protected.
So you can’t have it both ways.
You can’t give the press a monopoly over truth and the press give the president a monopoly on the truth.
And there is no reason for that.
We’ve seen that time and time again.
So let’s have real, honest, fair journalism that we deserve, not some kind of fake news.
So this is a challenge that we have here.
And we’ve been able to achieve some significant progress.
We have had the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, which means that gays and lesbians can openly serve in the military.
We also have a federal ban on gun violence.
We repealed the Affordable Care Act, which is a key part of my legislative agenda, and I also want to keep our veterans out of prison, but we also have to put our military back to work.
But there are still a lot more things to be done.
And the real test is going forward to determine if this is something we can accomplish together or if we need the Senate to step in.
And ultimately, I will have to say that I believe it is our duty to stand with the people of Florida and to stand in solidarity with our First Amendment supporters.
But let me also say, I hope the Senate will also join us, because this is not going to be the end of the story.
I know that some of you are frustrated by this administration, but the Senate is also going to get to work and we’ll have to see if we can find a way to get something done.
But the truth is that we are getting better.
The truth is we are winning.
And let’s keep fighting this, because it’s not going away. [Applause]
