Melania Trump’s speech: she couldn’t make it up

Melania Trump’s speech: she couldn’t make it up

Was Donald Trump’s wife’s address to the Republican convention a blatant steal from Michelle Obama (and Rick Astley)? Or was it all an elaborate act of sabotage by a rogue speechwriter?

Donald Trump introduces wife, Melania

Name: Melania Trump….Age: 46.Appearance: Carla Bruni meets Katie Price and stands uxoriously by the side of a madman.

The Donald’s wife. I don’t suppose she’s in the news because she has delivered an impassioned speech at the Republican national convention urging people not to vote for her Cheeto-coloured, fascistic narcissist of a husband, is she? No.

Just a dream I had. She delivered a speech about honesty and integrity that appears to plagiarise one that Michelle Obama gave to the Democratic Convention in 2008.   

Could you wait a second while I get my Things You Wouldn’t Dare Make Up notebook … She stole from a speech about honesty and integrity?   (more + see video here)

    From David Nir – Daily Kos -– The Donald Duck Trump Show Fails to Disappoint

    Melania Trump’s stunning plagiarism at the Republican National Convention should by all rights be fatal to her husband’s campaign for president, not merely because she plagiarized but because of whom she plagiarized ….

    Melania, who claimed beforehand that she wrote her speech “with as little help as possible,” stole from none other than Michelle Obama, whose family has been the target of the right’s most bitter hatred and ridicule for a decade now.

    Donald Trump has argued again and again that Barack Obama is an incompetent danger who is trying to drive the country aground, yet it’s the words of Obama’s own wife that the Trump family has seen fit to appropriate as its own.

    Those two things are impossible to square.

    If the Obamas are so odious and hazardous, how could their values be worth adopting?

    Conversely, since the Obamas’ values are so evidently worthy of adoption, as Melania demonstrated through her theft, then the case against the Obamas falls apart.

    The particular passage that Melania chose to lift makes her transgression all the more devastating.

    Michelle Obama spoke eloquently about working hard and treating others with respect and dignity. “Your word is your bond,” she said.

    If you copy without attribution a passage about hard work, dignity, respect and your word being your bond, then you lack all dignity and self-respect, yourself.

    Donald Trump did not speak these words himself, but he cannot disavow them. He personally introduced Melania on stage before she spoke, and the very purpose of her address was to promote an image that her husband wants to see promoted.

    They stole from a speech about honesty and integrity? – The irony!!?!
