When Obama entered the White House to begin his presidency, Michelle, his better half, gave an inspirational speech that she’s pretty much stood by throughout her hubby’s presidency.
So when Melania Trump did the same thing yesterday, we never actually expected her to do THE EXACT SAME THING. Maybe she got the wrong memo?
This was the biggest speech of Melanias life and , naturally, Donald wanted it to be perfect.
According to the New York Times, the Trump camp turned to two of the best speechwriters in politics, Matthew Scully and John McConnell to start working on Melania’s speech months ago. After issuing her the first draft last month, they heard nothing back.
Meanwhile, Melania was cutting and pasting away at the bits she didn’t like, leaving the resulting speech nothing much like the original….

Ok Ok, we know that’s only a few minutes of footage and Melania didn’t plagiarise Michelle’s whole speech, but seeing as the whole Trump campaign is pretty much a joke, we thought we’d get involved too.
Here’s some of the best comments and tweets from around the web…
