Melania Trump Steals Words From Michelle Obama Speech

July 18, 2016

It is late.  I am punchy after a long day and then I read this news from Politico.

A passage of Melania Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention on Monday night bore a striking resemblance to the speech delivered nearly eight years ago by another first lady hopeful, Michelle Obama.

As journalist Jarrett Hill flagged on Twitter, a portion of Trump’s speech in which she discussed the values instilled in her by her parents appeared to be largely the same words uttered by Michelle Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver.


“From a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise, that you treat people with respect,” Melania Trump said in her speech. “They taught and showed me morals in their daily life. That is the lesson that I continue to pass along to our son. And we need to pass those lessons on to many generations to follow because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.”

    Are you kidding me, pkarm. Mrs. Trump would love any country where she could have whored her way into the bed of a millionaire.
