How not to handle a crisis.

 Image result for melania trump images Folks are still talking about Melania trump ripping off some of the First Lady's speech.

At first you wouldn't think it's such a big deal. I mean who among us hasn't taken some liberties with the inspirational words of others? If you write enough, or engage in enough public speaking , it's easy for the P bug to come and bite you in the ass. I mean sometimes you just forget to give proper credit where it's due without thinking about it.

The president did it with Duval Patrick's speech, and Joe Biden among others have also ripped off the writing of others without properly attributing it. (Although in the case of Obama and Biden they were borrowing lines from ideological soul-mates)

The thing that makes the Melania plagiarism scandal so bad is how the campaign has been reacting to it after the fact. Instead of just making a statement to the effect that she did take some words from the First lady's speech because regardless of their political differences she has had similar inspirations, sadly, they choose to deny the obvious and look like bigger fools because of it. They have in essence  kept a news story going that should have had a very short life span.

Now, as it turns out, the story is getting even weirder.   

"A new report is providing some insight into how Melania Trump ended up reading a speech featuring a paragraph that plagiarized Michelle Obama.

NBC News’ Hallie Jackson reported on MSNBC tonight that Matthew Scully was brought on to write her speech for her, and “the draft submitted by Scully shows none of the portions in question.”
So, basically, the passage in question was added after the draft was submitted."

I guess now they can't throw the speech writer under the bus. But they have to do something; this scrutiny on Mrs. trump is not a good thing. There might be all kinds of things about the  former beauty queen that I am sure the campaign would rather the rest of us don't find out about. If that's the case, the sooner they put this one to rest and come clean, the better.

If this is how bad he botches the convention, imagine how bad he would botch the presidency.

Didn't she also falsely claim she was a college graduate? Newt praised her and said Mrs. Obama could learn from her. Ain't that always the way, a sista with a law degree from an Ivy League University who carries herself flawlessly is looked at as below a former model who shows her ass and didn't finish college. Damn shame.

Melania Trump would be a disgrace as FLOTUS, especially following Michelle Obama. Hell, Laura Bush was better.

Ironic that Trump has spent months denigrating immigrants for their myriad character flaws then trots out his own wife who promptly plagiarizes the First Lady on the eve of his coronation as the Republican candidate for the highest office in the land.

I really don't blame her as (like many of us) she's simply not sophisticated enough to write a speech for millions of people watching on primetime television, but she may have been better off just flashing her booty (as she has before) and not saying anything than trying to fool us with false pretense like her husband and hoping we'd all be charmed by it.

I am so looking forward to proudly say "Madam President" in the near future.

Melania Trump's speech is a distraction. There is a GOP Convention with speakers telling one lie after another. Judicial watch published a Pentagon report about the U.S, creating and building up ISIS to overthrow Libya and Syria. We found out the government has been covering up Saudi Arabia's role in the 9/11 attack for years. Police are brutalizing police brutality protesters. Melania Trump's speech is a shiny object the media is waving in front of our eyes,

She could pass for a transgender; looks a tad like the former Bruce Jenner.

LOL@ OMG!!!

It's funny, blacks will insult and denigrate Melania Trump, but will basically get on their knees and worship Hillary Clinton. You people are weird.

Yisheng said...

Melania ain't nuthin' more than an uneducated green card obtaining, gold digger that landed the biggest tang orange philandering blabber mouth in the world.

The fact that the world has seen her boobs and she's a former half naked "model" is further proof of the existence of dumb ass white privilege since she's given a pass on that 'ish that NO other woman would get! That alone makes her unfit to EVER be FLOTUS.

Hey Yisheng, check out Sargon of Akkad on YouTube. That goes for all blacks on this blog.

Donald Trump is a Trojan Horse designed to erase the legacy of the first Black POTUS. Any other person would not be considered for this office after so many vile and ruthless speech this man has spoken.

He was such a confidential braggart that he spoke of assualting someone and nothing would happen. Donald is hoping that he will garner 50.1 percent of the vote ala' Prez Obama to put him there.

I do give them credit for keeping the "angry Black male" meme with the use of Chief Negro Policeman and Dr. Kit Carson, ( I like calling names like Donald). The white race has always had a negro or two to use as puppets in demonizing the Black race. It is long past the time where we as a people should cease having this need of the whites approving of our existence here. .

Don't allow them to paint our young petitioners of justice a fear machine- for the scared whites. AND, I know whites have more guns than we can count, fortunately they live in areas that we can't easily travel in. But the gun will not be the formula for success. Vietnam and these third world countries have shown that arms alone will not accomplish mission. As a group, most Black males are satisfied for his social order. after all, taking the master's grand-daughters is routine.

I heard Melania was stealing black women's EBT, WIC and section 8. The woman has no shame. Black men need that to survive.

What it is about you trolls, how many times do I have to tell you that I do NOT follow your suggestions/links?

Take this one, along with the others you've made over the years, and stuff it back up your ass where it came from.

Either vote third party this election, or don't vote at all.

But the "third party" can't win.

"blacks will insult and denigrate Melania Trump, but will basically get on their knees and worship Hillary Clinton."

No Black woman fears losing her man to Hitlery Clinton.  Black women hate Melania Trump for the same reason they hated Nicole Simpson.

"Melania ain't nuthin' more than an uneducated green card obtaining, gold digger that landed the biggest tang orange philandering blabber mouth in the world."

Jealous much, Yisheng?  Melania is everything you wish you were, and neither you nor your offspring for a hundred generations could ever come close.

"The fact that the world has seen her boobs and she's a former half naked "model" is further proof of the existence of dumb ass white privilege"

Insane jealousy because nobody wants to see YOUR boobs.  95% of White people would be relieved never to have to see you at all.

"Melania is everything you wish you were, and neither you nor your offspring for a hundred generations could ever come close."

She's married to a man with small hands and tang orange skin/hair, and has a "pulled back" face that looks like the alien "in the Edgar suit" from men in BLACK 2.

She has NO college education, a flat ass, and NO career.

Yep, you're f*kin' delusional!

Who is worth several billion dollars, has a real-estate empire and looks to become the next POTUS despite everything the establishment that loved Obutthole can do to stop him.  Face it, the guy's got moxie.

"and has a "pulled back" face that looks like the alien "in the Edgar suit" from men in BLACK 2."

A face you can see the likes of in all the top fashion magazines.  Moochelle's, not so much.  Noses that can be swapped with a gorilla's just don't make it there.

"She has NO college education, a flat ass, and NO career."

She had a career as a model before she switched to billionaire's wife and mother.  Or are you saying that parenthood isn't work?

As for asses, Taylor Swift's is flat.  Melania's is just about perfect.  I bet that you think this morbidly obese sheboon is some acme of feminine allure.  Yet the rich Black NFL and NBA players go for... White girls that look like Melania Trump.  Generally stupid White girls, but White, and slim.


"Yep, you're f*kin' delusional!"

When it takes all of 2 seconds of thought to debunk your emotional spew, a well-grounded person would sit back and take stock.  Not you, though.  You'll keep providing entertainment for ages.  Wind her up, watch her go!
