The RNC's Chief Strategist Just Used 'My Little Pony' To Defend Melania Trump

By

In case you spent most of yesterday under a rock, the Republican National Convention kicked off and took Cleveland by force.

You had second amendment proponents walking around with AKs like it was the set of "Starship Troopers." You had a congressman say white people have done more for civilization than any other group. You had Scott Baio pretend like he didn't call a picture of Hillary Clinton with the word "cunt" the "best meme ever."

Unfortunately, that was just the tip of the iceberg.

One of the "highlights" listed in the above tweet is the speech Donald Trump's wife, Melania Trump, gave Monday night. Immediately following Melania's speech, the assessment was heard loud and clear: Donald Trump's wife copied Michelle Obama's speech.

I mean, come on. As you might imagine, Republicans have been quick to defend Melania Trump's speech, claiming she merely used "common words and phrases."

The best defense of Melania's speech, though, just came from the RNC's chief strategist, who used "My Little Pony" to prove Melania didn't plagiarize Michelle Obama.

Seriously, that just happened. I'm done.
