Short transcript:

"My fellow Americans. This is truly the best of times. It is the worst of times.”

“I did not plagiarize my speech last night. I would never do such a thing. I could not, would not with a goat. I would not, could not on a boat. That is because I learned honesty during my humble upbringing in West Philadelphia, born and raised, and on the playground is where I spent most of my days.”
