The woman married Trump, can we please not use her to generalize the intelligence of all white woman? Besides let's not even kid ourselves into thinking that she wrote her own speech, or Michelle for that matter.


But did Michelle claim to write the speech herself like Melania did?

Michelle Obama is quite the outlier, having attended Princeton and Harvard. I doubt she wrote her speeches herself, but she obviously has a decent education. She's not just some typical girl who can represent the masses, and I'm sure she'd take offense, just like I would, at being compared to common people. "Black woman democrat", come on. It's Michelle LaVaughn Obama.

You do realise that they don't write their own speeches. The man who "wrote it" has probably been fired, and will never get a speechwriting job ever again.


"It's outrageous--That writer's speech was irresponsible and unprofessional, he should not be allowed to write speeches in this campaign, and I think he should resign immediately!...Oh, wait, I already fired him!"

Trump's definitely having a bad week...

1) Paul Ryan, who keeps claiming Trump isn't racist, shares a photo online if an all white intern staff. http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-07-18/paul-ryan-posts-selfie-with-room-full-of-white-capitol-interns
2) The Nevertrump movement and rogue GOP Members try hijacking the GOP Convention (which also is being called out as having all white speakers).
3) This speech (which Melania claims to have spent a week writing) is outed as plagiarized from Michelle Obama and possibly others. The joke going around is that all these hardcore Republicans cheered the words of a Democrat.
4) The Ghostwriter and Publisher of Trump's "autobiography" today admitted that it was entirely a work of fiction. The Ghostwriter has apologized for glamorizing the "cruel businessman" that is Donald Trump (he needed money at the time). He's gone as far to say after spending 18 months with Trump writing the book, Trump had little to no input in it and left him to paint a picture that was the opposite of what he was witnessing. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/07/25/donald-trumps-ghostwriter-tells-all

And the convention still has three more days to go.

Did you watch the GOP convention? Because you're not telling the truth. David Clarke was definitely speaking. You're not racist for not hiring Blacks/Whatever, maybe the people he hired are just better at their job, and hiring based on skill is definitely not racist, or you're a complete moron. The NeverTrump movement was shut down as they realised they were in the minority and were booed out.

Both Michelle and her husband wrote significant portions of their 2008 speeches.

Granted, the segments they wrote were heavily vetted, but they still wrote much of their own material.

About the all white intern staff, I don't think a black person ever applied to work in his office. part of Ryan's congressional district is poor low income and black. When he first ran for congress, a special district was carved for him--small part black and poor; large part rich and white-- the black part votes democrat but their person never wins. They are no better off under Ryan than they are under a democrat. So i don't think black people in his district would even try to apply for a job is his office even if they are qualified.

How many black people would work for a Republican? Just saying. They're overwhelmingly democratic.

Let's be fair, many of the current problems facing blacks were based on discrimination, particularly poverty and hiring practices since before the 60s. So hiring practices can be racist. Just saying.

Unless you actually watched the full speech please don't jump on the bandwagon, if you did, which I did, you would be able tell that only a few sentences resembled Michelle Obama's speech. Most of what she talked about was her life before becoming an American citizen. SO, unless they've lived the same life, I don't think that their speeches were the same at all. I personally agree with the sentiment they both espoused and it is also an excellent way to define work with merit. Therefore don't ridicule something that is a positive statement and nothing more.

I was more concerned about Melania Trump quoting Rick Astley:

"He will never, ever, give up. And most importantly, he will never, ever, let you down."
