Even though it’s been a few weeks since the event, Melania Trump’s discourse during the Republican National Convention wasn’t forgotten, especially after she was accused of plagiarizing one of Michelle Obama’s past speeches.
Last night, the First Lady talked about this during “The Late Show”, where host Stephen Colbert, asked her is she was sympathetic to the unfortunate situation Donald Trump’s wife was put in, says CNN.
The audience appreciated the answer!
“Melania Trump was criticized for using what turned out to be a portion of your speech — but do you have any sympathy? Because there are people around her creating things, and you know, I have sympathy for her. Do you understand how that might be sympathetic, for what happened to her?” Stephen Colbert asked.
“Yeah, that was tough,” Michelle Obama responded, to the delight of the audience.
When asked about political spouses, who usually stand behind partners and have different political beliefs. “Do you have any sympathy for the people who have to go there and stand by the person running for president?”
The First Lady’s answer was clear and concise: “No. Because if — you know, you have to be, you know, in it. If you’re in it, and if you don’t agree, you should have agreed before they ran. Bottom line is, if you didn’t agree with what Barack was saying, I would not support his run. So I stand there proudly, and I hope they are, too, standing with their spouses proudly. So no, no sympathy.”
Smooth touch by Mr. Colbert
Of course, one of the best moments of the night was when the two talked about how eating too many carrots can turn someone orange.
“And if you turn really orange, you have to start saying crazy things and run for president,” Stephen Colbert concluded.
