Despite having previously mocked Melania Trump, wife of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, first lady Michelle Obama had two words of advice for her this Friday morning.
“Do you,” she said while speaking on NBC.
“You know, I would just urge the next person coming into this world to make it your own, because it’s believable when it comes from the deepest part of who you are, because this is a powerful platform to make a lot of change,” she continued.
The advice, although aimed at both Melania Trump and former President Bill Clinton, husband of Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, nevertheless differed quite a bit from the fierce words she had spoken last month, when she expressed her lack of sympathy for the spouses of presidential candidate.
“If you’re in it, and if you don’t agree, you should have agreed before they ran,” she said at the time.
“Bottom line is, if you didn’t agree with what Barack was saying, I would not support his run,” she continued. “So I stand there proudly, and I hope they are, too, standing with their spouses proudly. So no, no sympathy.”
Obama also indicated at the time that she had little sympathy for the scathing backlash Melania Trump had received during the Republican National Convention.
It was at the convention that the GOP candidate’s wife delivered a speech that contained a paragraph identical to a paragraph from a speech the first lady had delivered in 2008.
Melania’s speechwriter Meredith McIver later admitted to having unintentionally plagiarized Obama’s speech and apologized publicly for it.
ll the first lady herself had to say about the whole affair was this: “Yeah, that was tough.”
Many felt that the statement had a tone of disdain.
Regardless, the first lady sounded much more sympathetic this Friday than she had last month.
