    • 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)

    • +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.

    • 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!

    • +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.

    • +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.

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

    • +Annie Scott when did I say that? Why do you suppose that? Let me suppose
      that you think receiving food stamps and having watermelon eating contests
      are acceptable?

    • They keep saying how intelligent she is she speaks three different
      languages. Then why with a skill like that did she have to mimic someone

  1. *Trump·tard*
    *1.* trump supporters
    *2.* The inbred sheep of America

    synonyms: inbred, racist, obesity, triggered, kkk, hypocritical,
    republican, neckbeard, fedora

  2. 3000+ Americans perished under the last republican leadership and of course
    that’s all covered.. 100,000,000 worldwide not mentioning creating these
    new people that hate us.

    • +UTubeHobby “You work hard for what you want in life, You’re word is your

      Not too many people say this. Funny how both their parents said it and they
      are both campaigning to be First Lady. Yeah huge coincidence.

      You do what you say you’re going to do.”
      “You do what you say and keep your promise.”

      “You treat people with respect.” -Both

      You’re right. No difference.

    • yep watching this on bbc news LOL she copied word for word Michelle Obama
      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!

  3. Love how Trump’s wife plagiarized Mrs. Obama’s 2008 speech. lol I wonder if
    the media will call her out on it.

  4. wow, im completely blown away, TYT didn’t think much of the republican
    convention…i never saw that coming

    • +Mr Tee I listen to republican talk radio for the exact same reason, but
      sometimes my soul can’t bare the bs

    • +Mr Tee

      I’m sure the weight set in the background of your avatar is just a
      coincidence, right? Or could it be a sad, not-so-subtle attempt to tell
      everyone that you work out?

  5. 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.

  6. The elephant is the perfect symbol for Republicans: they never forget, lead
    each other around by the tail, and think everyone should work for peanuts.


  8. LOL anytime a Trump supporter gives you grief just laugh in their face and
    say this convention had Scott Baio as major speaker.

    • +America First And by “veterans” you mean veterans of Charles in Charge.
      Well, in fairness, that show was a dark period in our nation’s history so I
      guess he was hero for surviving it.

    • +Pascual Silvestre
      I’m blocking you simply for using “the young Turds” as a sad attempt at an

    • +keepit real but she legit plagiarized. A thing taken very seriously in
      academic circles

    • +Hunter B Wow you just didn’t read the transcript did you? There was more
      than just that
