Michelle Obama Reminds The World She's The Fiercest First Lady EVER By Getting Her Freak On With Missy Elliott For Carpool Karaoke!
There is no denying that Michelle Obama is the FIERCEST first lady ever.
Not only did the fitness activist get her groove on to Stevie Wonder, but she also confirmed that she is 100% a member of Beyonce's Beyhive. Oh, and got REAL about her and her man's secret service code names. LOVES it!
Also, Missy Elliott made a surprise appearance in order to promote the song, This Is for My Girls, which she collaborated with Miz Obama on for an education campaign. Obviously, the carpool crew made sure to perform M.E.'s hit Get Ur Freak On too. AH-Mazing!
Be sure to ch-ch-check out MObama's full ride along for yourself (below)!
It's been mere days since Donald Trump has been named the official Republican presidential nominee, and his campaign has already been ridden with more scandals than Kerry Washington would know what to do with.
In her statement, McIver described herself as an "in-house staff writer at the Trump Organization" who worked with Melania on the speech.
Apparently, Miz Trump read out some passages from FLOTUS as inspiration, and the staff writer was so incompetent, she accidentally included them in the speech. (Sounds fishy to us — but hey, that's politics!)
However, the confession may have actually caused a much bigger problem for team Trump, because both the letterhead and employee are from The Trump Organization — aka the candidate's personal business — and NOT the campaign!
Trump's campaign is allowed to use Trump Organization employees if they are paid by the campaign for that work, but McIver's statement — plus, the fact that she's a registered Democrat — strongly suggests that was never a campaign employee at all!!!
Though it does explain why the speech writer is such a big fan of Michelle Obama! LOLz!
Do YOU think Trump's campaign is in legal trouble?
Melania Trump Speechwriter Takes Blame For Plagiarism, Offers To Resign From Campaign… But She's Not Going Anywhere!
Next they're gonna say she improvised the entire thing…
You would think the biggest news to come out of the Republican National Convention would have at least something to do with politics, or social issues, or even the economy — but you'd be wrong.
No, in today's reality TV show that is the 2016 Presidential Election, the only thing people seem to care about from the RNC is potential First Lady Melania Trump's plagiarized version of a famous Michelle Obama speech.
That's because Trump campaign staff writer Meredith McIver claimed responsibility for the stolen words on Wednesday — despite the fact that speechwriters Matthew Scully and John McConnell were reportedly penning Melania's political presentation last month — and even offered her resignation!
Surprisingly, according to a public statement from Meredith, the former Celebrity Apprentice host decided to not use his catchphrase "You're Fired" on the family friend, saying:
Apparently, Donald Trump is a glass-half-full kind of candidate.
Despite saying she did her own work, viewers couldn't help but notice large chunks of the potential First Lady's speech were lifted from the current FLOTUS's 2008 address at the Democratic convention.
After the uncanny resemblances sparked online controversy — and the hilarious hashtag #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes — Trump's campaign tried to disprove the accusations by quoting Kid Rock and My Little Pony (we don't get it either).
Now with the dust settling, the big cheese himself weighed in on his wife's scandal — and his thoughts on the subject aren't the least bit surprising.
On Wednesday, Trump shared on Twitter:
Donald Trump Jr. Accused Of Plagiarizing His RNC Speech Too — But Did He Actually Pull A Melania Trump?
The Trump family's report card isn't looking so good right now!
First, Melania Trump got major heat following the Republican National Convention on Monday after viewers realized large chucks of her speech were lifted from Michelle Obama's 2008 address to the Democratic convention.
But it looks like the good old "copy and paste" speech-writing tactic is used by the whole family. Right after Donald Trump's team tried to put out Melania's fire, Trump's son was called out for plagiarizing a part of his speech at the second night of the RNC!
First flagged by The Daily Show's Twitter account, Donald Trump Jr. was accused of plagiarizing a passage on education reform in his speech from a May article in the American Conservative.
Trevor Noah and Co. shared a side-by-side of the lifted passage on Tuesday:
