At his fascist-filled social media summit, Trump had some very disturbing things to say about freedom of speech. He said the First Amendment does not cover the “mainstream media” anymore because they’re so “crooked” and “dishonest” and they “see something good and then…purposely write bad. If he had his way, he’s made quite clear, the First Amendment would be completely gutted.
“And we don’t want to stifle anything, we certainly don’t want to stifle free speech. But that’s no longer free speech,” said Trump. “See I don’t think that the mainstream media is free speech either, because it’s so crooked, it’s so dishonest.”
“So to me, free speech is not when you see something good and then you purposely write bad, to me that’s very dangerous speech, and you become angry at it,” said Trump. “But that’s not free speech.”
