RE: Official 2016 GOP Convention thread
Melania's speech was superb, there is nothing else to say.

What makes it really notable is the absence of mawkish personal stories and anecdotes. Those would normally be the bread and butter of this kind of speech because they would be deemed necessary to "humanize" the candidate through the wife's testimony. The press were waiting with bated breath for these bullshit anecdotes so they could mock and deride them relentlessly. But the inspired choice made by the speechwriter denied them that opportunity and they are very dismayed now.

The night should have ended with that speech and their exit. Mike Flynn is a terrible speaker and no one wants to keep listening in any case.

same old shit, sixes and sevens Shaft...

Watching it now, LoOz.

There was a subtle emphasis when she said "...for President of the United States, My HUSBAND, Donald J. Trump!"

She's in a position that makes millions of women envious and has to roll that off with class.

Without a doubt, though, she's a dangerous one. And a strong first lady.

Joni Ernst got shafted here a bit, after Melania the interest level was always going to drop. There was some buzz around her since she was mentioned as a possible VP pick, and the fact that she's not as well known nationally. Would have been great to showcase her with Sessions and Rudy in the lead up to Melania. She's killing it, but most people have probably tuned out by now. Flynn killed the mood a bit, even though he's substantive, he's just not very smooth as a speaker.

I'm disappointed Jason Beardsley doesn't have a more epic beard.

And yes Dismal Operator is right Melania should have been the final speaker. Always close on a high note.

He spoke well, good charisma. They should have had the vets speak, Sessions, then Rudy (now aka The Hype-Factory), and finally Melania.

Isn't it great how both Mr. Trump and Melania represent among the best each gender could be, provided their not hampered by bullshit in childhood, and as long as they put their heart, soul, and focus into it?

Also, Donald Trump Jr. said to Sean Hannity that the White House is never blue (in response to a slain police officer).

Is it just me or does this convention give you guys the feeling that you are watching a different political partys convention? I like the shift.

Looks like her speech was plagiarized straight from a speech from Michelle Obama.

...someone will never work again after tonight. It makes it worse that she did an interview earlier tonight that will be aired tomorrow where she talks about how she wrote her own speech. Even MSNBC is saying it's a shameful thing that was done and seriously harmed the campaign and her image.

If you are going to impose your will on the world, you must have control over what you believe.

RE: Official 2016 GOP Convention thread
I'd need to see a side-by-side compare of their speeches, I mean is it copied as far as generalities (talking good shit about her husband, how he'll bring the country together, etc.) or specifics? If specifics, how did it get through without anyone noticing? Really can't take the media seriously nowadays, after all, I'd need to see it for myself.

But yeah, if really plagiarizing, you can't blame Trump for it but they'll use whatever shit they can against him. That'd be unfortunate.

Here are two funny images to make things better.

The part people claim was plagiarized, vs Michelle Obama's speech, from Vox:

Quote:Here’s the key moment in Trump’s speech:

My parents impressed on me the values: that you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise. That you treat people with respect. They taught me to show the values and morals in my daily life. That is the lesson that I continue to pass along to our son.

And we need to pass those lessons on to the many generations to follow. [Cheering] Because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.

And this is from Michelle Obama’s speech in 2008:

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.

Note that some key things Michelle Obama said were not "copied" by Melania.

Plagiarized? I doubt it. Influenced? Maybe. This is seriously generic stuff though, and enough is different that I doubt Melania was looking at Michelle's speech while she wrote hers.

Not that the truth will matter, whatever it is. It sure hasn't so far in this race.

Someone on 4chan speculated that this was intentional. 4D Chess mastery again by Trump. The media which would have normally ignored Melania will now play her speech vs Michael Obama's speech over and over the next few days. The American people will see a real woman, Melania, compared to the man-ish Michael Obama. The people will tune out that it might be plagiarized and instead listen to the message. BAM! Another $50 million in free advertising for the Trump campaign.

One can't trust the liberal news (MSNBC, Vox, etc.) these days. They would just do anything to make Trump look bad by swaying the voters to HRC.

I guess there's a really popular speech writer for first-ladies lol

Notice the Democratic vs. Republican differences in believes reflected through the scripts:

R: "That you treat people with respect. They taught me to show the values and morals in my daily life."
D: "that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don't know them, and even if you don't agree with them."

R: " Because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them."
D: "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."

Melania Trump writing her own speech inspired by Michelle Obama - horrible plagiarisation, awful, despicable
Michelle Obama ordering a speech from the hack campaign speechwriter inspired by focus group results - incredible creativity, brilliant, touching

I'm not sure if this is 8D Korean space chess from the Trump team, but I also think it's much ado about nothing. The speeches are similar, even contain similar phrases. I don't honestly think anyone anyone was expecting some earth-shattering insights and wisdom from Melania anyways.

The lib media just wants to find the shit lining in everything. There's SO MUCH MORE TO COME from both inside and outside the RNC that this will be nothing by the end of the week.

I hate linking to Gawker, but this is the side by side comparison link that I have been seeing making the rounds.

https://www.facebook.com/Gawker/videos/1...637212629/

From this it definitely looks like parts of the speech are too similar.
