Even Nigel Farage, former leader of the English right-wing, Islamaphobic UKIP party can’t believe what the Trump-led Republican Party gets away with in our country. He is a leader who is well experienced in throwing half-truths against the wall, and seeing if they stick. In the case of the recent referendum, his Party was the leader in this practice and helping to get British voters to vote to leave the European Union.
So it is now with the Trump Republicans thinking it is Spring Training for the big leagues, and soon one of their excuses for Melania Trumps plagiarism at the RNC will stick to the wall.
First came their denial that they were in Spring Training and no excuse was needed for Melania’s educated words that Michele Obama had used eight years ago to sell another candidate. That short memory had worked very well for Donald in his primary lies, half truths, and just plain old bad throws. When even the media didn’t seem to buy that one they tried to blame a ghost writer for the speech, but Melania had sort of pulled the rug from that one since she originally claimed she had written her speech.
By the third day the Party thought they had hit a home run with this one. The Ghost writer revealed herself and made a statement that she indeed took responsibility but it was based on Melania Trump’s great admiration for Michele Obama’s 2008 speech that those words were included in her speech to the 2016 Republican convention.
Now how could any “left wing press” not let that one stick to the wall.
Nigel Farage, bow your head. Unlike you English, we are truly an exceptional people.
