Trump Book Warns About Trump’s Piss-Poor Speech Writers

Barack Obama,Donald Trump


Poor, wonderful Melania Trump was tripped up by an incompetent, crooked, Trump campaign speech writer. An entire paragraph from this lovely lady’s speech, at the Republican National Convention, was lifted almost word-for-word from Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC 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,” Melania Trump said. “They taught and showed me values and morals in their daily life.”
The first lady made similar remarks in 2008, saying both she and then-Sen. Barack Obama learned those same values when they were growing up.
“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,” Michelle Obama said according to a transcript from CNN.

This unraveling, if it is one, began with Donald Trump listening to family, likely against his own better judgment, and letting dynamo Corey Lewandowski go. Then came The Pence Compromise.

“The Trump Revolution: The Donald’s Creative Destruction Deconstructed” points out the need for Trump to “tap” the likes of “Old-Right conservatives” like the “scrappy, always brilliant populist Patrick J. Buchanan, who was Trump before Trump,” as well as “Ann Coulter,” who “writes pellucid prose.” (AND knows how to use Lexisnexis.)

Prof. Tom DiLorenzo thinks “Mercer would make a good speech writer in a Trump administration.”

What a disservice to Melania. (More.)
