bytesize for the ladies

Bytesized | 22 July 2016 – all about the ladies

The twittersphere lost its mind this week. Melania Trump (Republican) plagiarized a speech that Michelle Obama (Democrat) gave in 2008 and the internet responded in the best way possible. Michelle Obama gets even cooler in Carpool Karaoke. Taylor and Kanye went to twar, all their celeb friends jumped in and who better to explain it to us than our very own Suzelle DIY. What a mouthful – this week in Bytesized.

Melania Trump got some “inspiration” from Michelle Obama & the internet lost its mind

The speech writer admitted to using part of Michelle Obama’s speech, which everyone knows but I wonder how they thought the internet wouldn’t notice. And if you were going to pilfer some words, surely the last person you would plagiarize from is the current First Lady, who happens to be a democrat. Bold. Is bold the right word?

Just when you thought that the First Lady couldn’t get any cooler…
