This circus just keeps getting funnier and funnier.

RNC Communications Chief Cites 'My Little Pony' In Defense Of Melania Trump's Plagiarism
Appearing Tuesday on MSNBC, Republican National Committee communications director Sean Spicer quoted the children’s television show, as well as singers Akon and John Legend, to explain why portions of Trump’s convention speech lined up so closely with Obama’s words, arguing that an online search for any line in the speech would turn up similar phrases.
...
“Hold on, it’s getting better,” said Spicer. “Melania Trump said, ‘The strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.’ Twilight Sparkle from ‘My Little Pony’ said, ‘This is your dream, anything you can do in your dreams.”

Yeah, I saw that. They really need to stop talking right now and regroup, come back with something a lot more coherent.

This whole outage seems contrived. It wasn't word for word copying, from what I've seem. It was the same tired, bland platitudes all these speeches consist of for decades. I'll bet the speech writers in both camps attended the same really awful Communications classes.

And Twilight Sparkle would make a much more interesting First Pony than Bill or Ma Trump.

Maybe it's time for virtual candidate, like the virtual celebrities they have in Asia.
