Melania Trump's speech plagiarizes parts of Michelle Obama'sI must say, watching the paid-by-the-hour Trump hooker on CNN and the pro-Trump potato bug on MSNBC drowning in flopsweat and running in circles screaming "Foul!" is fucking hilarious.
As Joy Ann Reid said, if Michelle Obama had done anything like this in 2008, the media would have gutted her and her husband. But it's not Mrs. Obama, it's a pretty, white Republican lady who is the wife of a rich New York celebrity so the media has gone immediately into full "It wasn't her fault! Fire the staffer who did this!" mode
But I must say, the fact that, of all people, they ripped off Michelle Obama -- the one person the Right hates with a harder, crazier, more bigoted fury than anyone else on Earth -- is what makes it art.
Mr. Sonia on the Twitter machine points out that there also appears to be a Rickroll slipped into the middle of this hot mess:
But to reiterate (and to paraphrase @tvoti), the real speechwriter's scandal here is this ACTUAL RICKROLL?!?!?!?!?! pic.twitter.com/eSuFbbVs43— mr. sonia (@soniasaraiya) July 19, 2016
Remember, this is the launch event for the Republican campaign for president.
A campaign being run out of the back pocket of the man who has all the best words.
A man who knows there is no better word than "stupid".
