HELLO EVERYONE! I am finding, today, surprisingly, so much easier than yesterday, and the rest of this week. I’ve gotten all my assignments completed, and am hoping to finish my blog before Marathi Shala starts. My Kumon was completed earlier in the day, and I was able to finish TX history fast, and my work, is now being used as an example of what to do. How exciting! I also was able to finish my ELA assignment, due on Monday, quickly after being stuck- with the help of Mumma- giving me time to finish this post up. I started this yesterday, as I mentioned, but couldn’t finish it, so I am now. Anyway, this post isn’t about me, it’s about Melania Trump’s speech.
So, as we know, President Trump is running for his second term as president. The first time he ran, Melania Trump gave a speech, and that speech was accused of being a copy of Michelle Obama’s speech. So, today, I’m going to go further into that, and also compare 2016’s speech with the 2020 speech.
So, we’re going to be reviewing, Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech, when she spoke for President Obama to become president, and Melania Trump’s 2016 speech when she spoke for President Trump to become president. Here is the first clip- Michelle Obama’s speech. Second clip – Melania Trump’s speech. Final clip- Both speeches comparing ( Update: Due to lack of time, this post will talk about both speeches rather than each one individually)
So, in the final clip, they start with Michelle Obama’s speech. You can see how much she means and cares when she says every word. It sounds like it is truly what she means. To be honest, when hearing that Melania Trump’s speech was “similar” to Michelle Obama’s, I thought word for word. Of course not! I’m ridiculous. The speech did, actually, sound like Michelle Obama’s, but phrased differently and bending to her own life and thoughts. But still, in the end, if you pay attention and try to remember a few bits of the first speech, you can hear the faint echo and similarity in the second speech- Melania Trump’s speech. The part I just listened to, right now, sounds a lot like what Michelle Obama said. It was a little different, but, it felt identical. Now, this whole blog isn’t all, Melania Trump copied Michelle Obama and that’s bad, it’s also, seeing how she’s changed her speech and it shows what she thinks and cares. CLICK HERE FOR MY REVIEW OF HER 2020 SPEECH!
In her, Melania Trump, 2020 speech, she talks about a lot of the accomplishments in her life. Dreaming of being a fashion designer in America and traveling there one day. Becoming an American citizen. Voting as a woman, and voting for her husband. Traveling internationally for a project and meeting kids and many people. She also speaks clearly from her heart about COVID-19 and it’s effect over the world. It feels more like a story this time, rather than a speech or a repeated speech. It was really well done, and I think, that, if she had given a speech like this in 2016, the 2020 speech would have seemed even better and convincing.
Anyway, I know this was shorter than my plan, but, I’ve got to go. I have half an hour until Marathi Shala, and I just want to relax until then. BYE!
