‘Ask yourself if Michelle Obama would have been given a pass had she done the same thing in 2008?’

......the hypocrisy was too much for Joy Reid to stand by and say nothing. Reid pointed out that if Michelle Obama’s speech had been plagiarized she would not have been given a pass.

“I’ll start by quoting a guy called Tom Nichols, who’s a conservative and very prominent on Twitter, who said, ‘Ask yourself if Michelle Obama would have been given a pass had she done the same thing in 2008?’ I think we’re all very quickly passing the responsibility onto staff. Clearly, this is a campaign that is poorly staffed. I think that has been clear for a long time. But they sent Melania Trump over to Matt Lauer to say that she wrote it . But we’re immediately dismissing the idea that she had anything to do with it. I doubt that we would dismiss the idea that Michelle Obama had anything to do with it.

She’s an adult woman. She’s grown up. She has participated in the delivery of this speech. She gave the speech. So I think you have to give responsibility — sure, to the staff, the campaign management has been poor here — but Melania Trump did give the speech and Michelle Obama wouldn’t have gotten a pass.”


The 4 Stages of Attending RNC in One Photo


Oh, the irony

Sarah Hurwitz, Michelle's head speechwriter, used to be Hillary's. So the Trump campaign plagiarized from a Hillary speechwriter.

Norovirus outbreak reported among GOP convention staffers

A handful of Republican staff members in Cleveland for the GOP convention were reported to be suffering Tuesday from a possible norovirus infection.

And if there are a few people with norovirus, it’s likely there will be more.

Norovirus, for those who are unfamiliar with it, is a massively contagious and unpleasant but usually non-life-threatening ailment that turns cruise ships into giant vomit-filled shit canoes.

If Uday and Qusay Trump appear on stage tonight and open their mouths to sing their horrid racist father’s praises but instead emit twin streams of projectile vomit while simultaneously shitting their pants, I will reconsider my lifelong atheism.

George W. Bush Told Inner Circle He Worries About Being 'Last GOP Prez'

Wouldn't this be fitting:

Former President George W. Bush confided to his closest ex-aides that he fears Donald Trump's nomination could hasten the downfall of the Republican Party, according to a Politico story out Tuesday.

"I'm worried that I will be the last Republican President," Bush told former aides and advisers at an April reunion in Dallas.

The Bush family has chosen to remain on the sidelines of the GOP nominating contest after former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush left the race. Jeb Bush has said he won't vote for Trump, and neither George W. Bush nor his father, former President George H.W. Bush, are attending this week's convention.


Bombshell report: Megyn Kelly has told Murdoch lawyers she was sexually harassed by Roger Ailes

It looks like the biggest shoe in the Roger Ailes sexual harassment scandal has just dropped.

According to New York Magazine’s Gabriel Sherman, Fox News star anchor Megyn Kelly has told investigators hired by the Murdoch family that she has been sexually harassed by Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

Specifically, Sherman has two sources who claim that “Kelly has told investigators that Ailes made unwanted sexual advances towards her about ten years ago when she was a young correspondent at Fox.” The sources say that she described the alleged harassment by Ailes in great detail.

Another juicy tidbit in Sherman’s piece: His sources say Ailes has “received advice on strategy from Donald Trump and Rudy Guiliani” for beating the rap on sexual harassment, which adds a whole other layer of intrigue to this saga.
