Melania Trump Responds: ‘The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself’

Hello, it is me, Melania Trump, future First Lady of the United States and reluctant participant in the current presidential election. After delivering my first major address last evening at the Republican National Convention, I have been accused of plagiarizing part of Michelle Obama’s own convention speech from eight years ago. To this, I want to prove that I am no plagiarist by saying what I alone can say:


Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country!


People seem to forget that I am an immensely intelligent woman. I speak five languages; I am a mother, a businesswoman, a wife, and I Am Malala. You ask, what is my policy? I can say it is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime.


That is my policy. I mean, if I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times.


Four score and seven years ago, I was a young girl in Slovenia full of so many dreams. I had a dream—a dream that that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.



But last night after the convention, I was devastated. How could I express the unique words I have in my heart? It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union.


I’m every woman

It’s all in me

Anything you want done baby

I can do it naturally


But I refuse to be discouraged. I wrote my speech and intend to write many more. Now Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
