A great portion of Melania Trump’s speech at the RNC was almost word for word from Michelle Obama’s DNC speech in 2008.
Before her speech, Melania told a reporter she’d written the speech herself with a little bit of help. Either this is the political equivalent of directly copying someone’s homework or a huge coincidence.
Take a look at the transcript of First Lady Obama’s 2008 speech as you listen to Mrs. Trump’s words in Cleveland.
“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 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.”
