RNC Spokesman Quotes ‘My Little Pony’ to Defend Melania Trump
The RNC’s Sean Spicer quoted the Notorious B.I.G., Akon, and the cartoon pony Twilight Sparkle to defend Melania Trump’s speech.
MSNBC’s Craig Melvin listened in disbelief Tuesday as a spokesman for the Republican National Committee quoted a list of figures—including the “My Little Pony” character Twilight Sparkle—to defend Melania Trump’s convention speech.
“A simple Google search of three phrases comes up with everything from Sparkle Pony to John Legend to Akon to the Notorious B.I.G.,” Sean Spicer, communications director for the Republican National Convention, told Melvin.
Spicer argued that since Melania’s phrases—including references to hard work and pursuing one’s dreams—were so common, they could not possibly have been plagiarized from a strikingly similar speech by Michelle Obama.
Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony famously said: “This is your dream, anything you can do in your dreams.”
