      She has 0 political experience. I would much rather vote for Gary Johnson
      who actually showed his worth and experience in leading as governor of New
      Mexico and left with a 1 billion dollar surplus. (coming from a die hard
      Bernie Sanders fan)

    Did you all catch that Melania give Michelle Obama’s speech?

    • Mostly Brenda
      July 19, 2016 at 3:19 PM

      And Republicans cheered like crazy for Michelle’s speech.

    My favorite part was Michelle Obama’s speech.

      +Remco Bleyenberg Well you would have a point if Michele actually did steal
      Elizabeth Dole’s speach but like always this is just another right wing lie
      to deflect from the ineptness of team Trump. Anyone that has the internet
      can easily google and find Elizabeth Dole’s speach. I did it and wasn’t at
      all shocked to see this is yet another lie.

    • Natalie Hamilton
      July 19, 2016 at 3:41 PM

      Yes, the Trumps both stole from the Obamas.

      LOL……just wait until Trump give the speech out of the independence day
      movie “we will not go Quietly into that night…..” the people are so
      stupid at these conventions they probably wouldn’t notice.

      Well when you have no actual plans that Americans can all get behind, what
      other route do they have? Still waiting on their plans for replacing the
      Affordable Care Act!

    • lecorsaire
      July 19, 2016 at 1:41 PM

      +Secret lemons Go back and look at how George H.W. Bush spoke at the RNC in
      1988. Even if I don’t agree with everything that he said, that is how you
      deliver a proper speech that will fire up the base and even get others to
      cross over. I will reserve judgment until I hear Trump’s speech, but I
      don’t have high expectations given how he has spoken throughout the
      campaign. Even though I am pro abortion, Bush was really compelling when he
      said adoption instead of abortion mentioning his adopted granddaughter.
      That is how you properly make a strong case for a position.

      Of course the Republican base will down play the plagiarism and criticize
      the media for pointing it out.

    • Imladros
      July 19, 2016 at 1:05 PM

      It’s the patriotic thing to do.

    • lecorsaire
      July 19, 2016 at 1:33 PM

      +Kenji Of course they will and already have. What kind of message are they
      sending children? Plagiarism is a fast track to getting kicked out of
      college or ruining one’s career. In Germany a promising politician was
      stripped of his doctorate for plagiarism in his thesis. Now he is known as
      Dr. von Copy und zu Paste! It is totally ok to use someone else’s words or
      thoughts when proper credit is given. His campaign should’ve handled this
      immediately and apologized for it. This is not about politics but integrity.

    Trumps wife stole Michelle Obama 2008 DNC speech! Word for Word! WOW!

    • TimorousSpecter
      July 19, 2016 at 4:22 PM

      +Arm D They probably just meant that certain portions…well many portions
      were taken word for word. With mild changes of course.

    • Annie Scott
      July 19, 2016 at 4:24 PM

      +Arm D I suppose you think that’s acceptable?

      that you think receiving food stamps and having watermelon eating contests
      are acceptable?

    Melania also copied Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech. The Trump campaign is
    extremely classless. Zero integrity.

      speech 😂 seriously are these people mentally ill to believe people
      wouldn’t notice this stupidity! Although some republicans were coming out
      of the convention saying it wasn’t plagiarism LOL!

      I’m sure the weight set in the background of your avatar is just a

      everyone that you work out?

    For as much as Trump hates Obama that didn’t stop his wife from copying
    Michelle’s speech from 8 years ago. Hypocrites! But none of Trump
    supporters care about the truth, you guys just love drama.
