6 ways Melania Trump and Michelle Obama are oddly alike
We’re confused too
My heart aches to see Michelle Obama leave the white office, she will definitely go down as the coolest First Lady in history. Melania Trump will soon be filling those heels and I don’t know if the world is ready for this, but its happening very soon. These two women are completely different but they do have some similarities, here are 8 ways they are ODDLY alike:
1. They both give really similar speeches
There has been controversy, and a lot of memes made, over Melania Trump’s speech from the Republican National Convention sounding almost exactly the same as Michelle Obama’s speech from the 2008 Democratic National convention.
Whether she was so inspired by Michelle’s beautiful words that she wanted to borrow them, or if her speech writer was secretly a Clinton supporter, the world was provided with a plethora of memes to laugh about.
2. Both women are always supportive of their husbands and constantly cheering them on.
Both women have been by their sides throughout the campaign. Michelle and Barack Obama bump fists at an election night rally at the Xcel Energy Center, they spoke together during a rally at Alliant Energy together, Michelle is always there to hug her husband after his acceptance speeches, and constantly fixing him up whether its his tie, collar or wiping something off his forehead.
Melania defended her husband when he was accused of sex allegations, and in an Anderson Cooper interview she says that she was disappointed in Trump’s “grab her by the pussy” comments but she continued to support him by saying “ Bush instigated the comments, claiming her husband was “led on like, egged on from the host to say dirty and bad stuff.”
3. Both promote change for the younger generation
Melania has made her statement that she wants to put a stop to cyber bullying, she says “Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers,” Yet her husband was mean to people various times on twitter. She also says,“It is never OK when a 12-year-old girl or boy is mocked, bullied or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground and it is absolutely unacceptable when it’s done by someone with no name hiding on the internet.” Michelle developed a public health campaign to prevent childhood obesity called “Let’s Move!” This campaign provides healthier foods in public schools and making sure that families have access to healthy affordable foods. FOTUS said,” In the end, as First Lady, this isn’t just a policy issue for me. This is a passion. This is my mission. I am determined to work with folks across this country to change the way a generation of kids thinks about food and nutrition.”
4. They are both mothers
FLOTUS and POTUS did a wonderful job of raising there two beautiful daughters. The world has seen them both grow up into intelligent young woman. Michelle Obama said at the Democratic convention,” We’ve had the joy of watching them grow from bubbly little girls into poised, young women.” Melania’s only child is Barron, who has her full attention. She refuses to hire a nanny, she’s not too occupied with other responsibilities that she cannot take care of her own son. Although her husband has won the election she will still be taking Barron to school. In an US weekly interview she said,” “Barron is the priority for now.”
5. Shamed on social media
Unfortunately, both women have been trashed on social media. Melania was slut-shamed because she was a model and has posed nude several times, and these photos have surfaced the internet, because she will be the next first lady people are not having it, people have made comments that “she is a whore,” “she’s trashy,” “she’s a trophy wife”. Meanwhile A teacher posted a comment on Facebook that stated that Michelle Obama was a “gorilla.” The teacher implied that FLOTUS is going to have a hard time surviving in the real world and that she needs to get a makeover.
6. Mrs. Trump and Mrs. Obama have made fashion statements.
They are always in public looking extra classy. Elle said, When Michelle Obama became the First Lady of the United States in 2008, she immediately gained the fashion community’s vote for her all-American style. Lately, she’s been alternating more daring cuts and colors mixed in with her signature knee-length floral dresses. Hopefully, after FLOTUS leaves the White House she will continue to slay with her legendary fashion.
According to the Daily Beast, Melania has been seen in younger brands such as, Jason Wu and Prabal Gurung while also wearing bigger, more established names like Michael Kors and Narciso Rodriguez. Mrs. Trump has been faced with some backlash as to whether or not fashion designers will want to dress her or not. Despite this, I’m sure she will continue to give us her best fashion statements.
