Michelle Obama Talks Beyonce, Melania Trump And Barack Impressions On The Late Show


Michelle Obama

It's getting ever closer to the 2016 US Presidential Election, where we'll tearfully bid farewell to the coolest President America has ever seen, as well as his accomplished First Lady Michelle Obama. She took to the 'Late Show With Stephen Colbert' on Tuesday night (September 20th 2016) where pure hilarity ensued. 

Michelle ObamaMichelle Obama calls Melania Trump's speech 'tough'

Michelle Obama discussed everything from her global initiative to educate girls all over the world (Let Girls Learn) to the Melania Trump controversy. As it turns out, Michelle has 'no sympathy' for the spouses of the presidential candidates, even in the case of Donald Trump's wife who was blasted for plagiarism when she lifted much of Michelle's 2008 address for her Republican National Convention speech.

Just How Much Of Melania Trump's Speech Was Taken From Michelle Obama?


Michelle Obama

Well, this is awkward. There seems to have been some fraudulent behaviour going on within American politics as an inspiring speech made by Michelle Obama eight years ago seems to have been half stolen by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's wife Melania Trump for her Republican national convention address last night (July 18th 2016).

Michelle ObamaMichelle Obama's speech gets totally ripped off

Whoever the Trumps have got on the payroll to write their speeches needs to be fired, stat. Or given a medal for making Donald Trump look more of a fool than he already is. I mean, it's a pretty good idea to take inspiration from one of America's most popular woman - First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama - but to take her speech verbatim isn't the smartest move in a generation ruled by the internet.

Maya Angelou Michelle Obama Oprah Winfrey

The US Postal Service’s attempt to commemorate the late author and civil rights activist Maya Angelou has ended in farce, after a postage stamp bearing her image contained a quotation that was, in fact, attributed to somebody else.

According to the Washington Post on Tuesday, the words that appear on the stamp - “A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song” – would seem to make reference to Angelou’s 1969 autobiography ‘I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings’.

However, though these words are associated with her they were not actually written by Angelou, but instead by Joan Walsh Anglund in her 1967 book of poetry ‘A Cup of Sun’, with the “it” on the stamp changed from a “he”.
