Now’s a good time to compare the current First Lady, Michelle Obama, and our potential next First Lady, Melania Trump.
Hell, the leftist media has been doing it all week, we might as well join in!
Despite the similarities between Melania’s speech and Michelle’s in 2008, there is a stark contrast in what they actually said. Sure Melania repeated a few words, but the greater tone and message of her speech greatly overshadows the words that our current First Lady said. Or ever said.
It’s clear that we have a First Lady that possesses as much vitriol for America as her husband. Despite her half-hearted campaign to make fat kids healthy (something the regressive left now calls fat-shaming), she represents everything wrong with race relations in the country. From the moment she opened her mouth in 2008, she has reinforced resentment to the men and women who helped build this country.
On the other hand, Melania Trump represents the millions of immigrants who came to this country legally, worked hard to build careers for themselves and their families, eventually attaining citizenship. She embodies everything for which America stands. She projects no bile or resentment against other Americans, only respect and camaraderie.
So yeah, she took a few words from Michelle, but what she said was worlds apart.
As the media pores over one passage in Melania Trump’s Republican National Convention speech that is similar to Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech at the Democratic National Convention, they overlook a key sentence that was undeniably written by Mrs. Trump and reveals all the difference in the world between these two women and their husbands.
“On July 28th, 2006, I was very proud to become a citizen of the United States — the greatest privilege on planet Earth,” the smiling Mrs. Trump said to thunderous applause…
What a difference these sentiments are to Michelle Obama’s infamous remarks during the 2008 campaign, when she said, “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country.”
Why was she suddenly proud “for the first time” in her “adult life”? Because her husband was running for president.
Contrast that with Melania Trump’s inherent pride in being an American citizen, which in her words is “the greatest privilege on planet Earth.”
It’s clear that Michelle and Melania have very little in common and Mrs. Trump will be a far greater First Lady.
