First lady Michelle Obama parodies about Melania Trump plagiarism: ‘Yeah, that was tough’
( CNN) Michelle Obama on Tuesday joked about the plagiarism contention that engulfed Melania Trump during the Republican National Convention, extraditing a dry rejoinder when “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert questioned the first lady if she was sympathetic to the plight of a fellow political spouse.
“Melania Trump was criticized for using what turned out to be a portion of your addres — but do you have any sympathy? Because there are people around her making occasions, and you know, I have sympathy for her. Do you understand how that might be sympathetic, for what happened to her? ” the CBS host asked.
