Melania Trump stole her speech from Michelle Obama and the Internet came for her

"Becky with the borrowed speech"

Melania Trump

The speech Melania Trump delivered on the first night of the Republican National Convention about her husband Donald Trump, was stylishly stolen from lady Michelle Obama’s Democratic convention speech in 2008.

Melania Trump said in her speech:

"From a young age, 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 and showed me values and morals in their daily life. That is a lesson that I continue to pass along to our son, and we need to pass those lessons on to the many generations to follow 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."

Michelle Obama’s convention 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."

The Internet went ballistic after journalist Jarett Hill noticed the similarities:

This year is too controversial, its just July and it seems the world is about to end.

2017 should come quick please.
