Let’s not get into any sticky political talk. Let me just lay out the facts for you to decide.
- Last night Melania Trump delivered a much anticipated speech at the Republican National Convention.
- NBC’s Matt Lauer interviewed Melania earlier in the day and asked her how she prepared. Melania responded with, “I read once over it, that’s all, because I wrote it … with (as) little help as possible.”
- Melania, whether realizing it or not, absolutely lifted word for word segments of Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech.
Melania Trump last night:
“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. They taught and showed me values and morals in their daily lives. That is a lesson that I continue to pass along to our son,”
And we need to pass those lessons on to the 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.”
Michelle Obama in 2008:
“And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them.And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and to pass them on to the next generation. Because we want our children — and all children in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.”
Maybe Melania meant to tell Matt Lauer that only Google helped her during the writing process. Who can really blame her though? Michelle Obama really is an inspiration to everyone. All I know is this: If I were in the 10th grade, my English 101 teacher defs would have failed me for turning in a paper like this.
