Coulter: MICHELLE'S SPEECH WAS TRITE, TOO

Political Cartoons by Lisa Benson

Ann Coulter 
. . . "Not one single person on MSNBC said, "Yeah, um, can we talk about something else because this is so lame and trivial, we risk looking like sissies.' " . . .
 . . . "Obviously, Melania's speechwriter didn't think up those words -- and neither did Michelle's. You can hear the same thing at any third-rate college commencement, at Orientation Day at Excel academies, at motivational speakers' corporate events, and right now, in the greeting card aisle of your local Rite Aid. 

"Not even Hallmark cards could claim authorship because there were probably caveman drawings with rainbows that said, "You can achieve anything you set your mind to!" 

"If I were giving a speech and suddenly burst into, "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets ..." you'd have a right to say, "Um -- Ann, did you write that part about fighting on the beaches yourself? 

"But if I say: "The only limit to your achievement is your dreams!" no one can claim the rights to those words because they're insipid nothings. 

"No one invented "the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams," anymore than I invented "Hey -- how you doing?" There's nothing there! These are phrases designed to allow you to make sounds while moving your mouth. 

"People who wanted to hate Melania thought her speech was godawful, and the ones who like her thought it was awesome and are now requesting copies of the speech to use at the office. 

"But all that actually happened was: Melania Trump gave a typical first lady speech. " . . .
