Must have been embarrassing

2016-08-02 06:00

A SPEECH given by presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s wife, which turned out to be a rip-off of one given by Michelle Obama years ago, must have embarrassed the front-runner.

Melania Trump defended it as her own “with a little help”.

The husband despises the current president, while she “admires” the first lady.

If Obama had been running against the hotelier-turned-politician, who knows? It could have turned out to be a photo finish!

Florida would then have had to do a recount — which previously resulted in George W. Bush toppling Al Gore, and an “Inconvenient Truth”.
