More than one person has said to me today that their favorite part of the election so far is how budding first lady (and wannabe Bond Girl) Melania Trump stole exact passages for her speech last night at the opening of the GOP convention. And not just passages, but from current first lady Michelle Obama. And not just some Michelle Obama speech, but her own convention address from eight years ago. “Who expected that the star of the GOP convention would be Michelle Obama?” someone said.
Well, it keeps getting better, thanks to the internet. The meme #MelaniaTrumpFamousQuotes, which puts others’ words in Melania’s mouth, is trending more than Pokemon GO right now. “The first rule of fight club is: you don’t talk about fight club. — Melania Trump” and “All my life I had to fight, I had to fight my daddy, my uncles, but I be damned if I have to fight in my own house! — Melania Trump” and “And I say to you this: Fish don’t fry in the kitchen. Beans don’t burn on the grill. Took a whole lot of trying just to get up that hill. — Melania Trump” and my favorite, “My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die. — Melania Trump.”
What is yours? That you’ve seen or come up with? We need more entertainment round here. Or as Melania might say, “We need a little Christmas, right this very minute. Candles in the window, carols at the spinet.”
