Melania Trump Plagiarizes Michelle Obama Speech

 

Thank you Michelle Obama.

This morning Melania Trump is under fire for copying Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech.  Her husband’s campaign manager is completely denying the allegations.

“To think that she would do something like that knowing how scrutinized her speech was going to be last night is just really absurd,” Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort told CNN.

Many are wondering how did Trump’s campaign think they could get away with this in today internet driven world.

Read below to see Melania’s speech vs. the First Lady’s 2008 DNC speech.

Melania Trump:

“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 lives. That is a lesson that I continue to pass along to our son,” Trump said.

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.”

“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 to 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.”

With Trump’s campaign already denying she copied the First Lady’s speech we’re wondering what the remaining RNC will bring.

Over coming the death of her mother is tough but she states she had to remain strong for her son Titan. Kelly states,  “It was a tough, emotional point for me. “I remember not wanting to be sad for Titan. I wanted to keep myself together because I believe that all that stress and grief can be passed on to your baby. Knowing Titan needed me, and having that to focus on, helped me through.”

Kelly knows motherhood has its ups and down but she offers some great advice to new moms who may struggle.  She advises new moms to be patient. Rowland states  “It takes about a year to get the weight off. Don’t beat yourself up if it takes even longer.” 

Most new moms struggle with the weight they gained during their pregnancy, Kelly’s advice to patient is great advice to new moms or moms to be who may put themselves down about it.

If new needs help or advice she calls on some of her other friends who have children.

VIDEO:David Aldridge talks about the early hours of free agency

From NBA.com staff reports

Last night’s opener to the free agency season in the NBA was like many more before it — some initial movement, a couple of re-signings here and there and, for the most part, a formal starting of the rumor mill.

The biggest moves last night were by one player who wasn’t even on the free-agent market this summer (Anthony Davis) and another who wasn’t expected to go far from his home team (Kawhi Leonard). Both players reportedly agreed to deals with their current teams — the New Orleans Pelicans and San Antonio Spurs, respectively — and earned big paydays to boot.

Davis reportedly agreed to a five-year, $145 million maximum contract while Leonard got a reported five-year, $90 million deal. The Portland Trail Blazers also reached a reported…
