Obama - or Trump?

I know. almost the definition of a no-brainer. But today's Guardian provides an extra reason for exploring the cpmparison. Melania Trump, anxious to promote her husband's candidacy, wanted nothing but the best for her speech in his support. so she went all the way back to eight years ago, and pilfered large chunks of Michelle's Obama's speech, in a similar context, for a similar purpose. the Guardian prints the two side by side, and it's hilarious - or embarrassing.


There's intelligence, humour and self-awareness - and there's arrogance, prejudice and virtiol. To adapt the amazon motto, if you liked that then it's surely inconceivable that you could vote for this. And so you'd have thought, three months ago. But after Brexit, anything could happen.
