OMING OFF of a rousing and very Michelle Obama-esque speech on the Republican National Convention stage last evening, Melania Trump has announced that she is "very, very hard at work" drafting a second speech, which rumor has it scans to a remarkable extent to the final segments of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s now legendary "I Have A Dream" oration.
However, Mrs. Trump has heatedly denied all such rumors, insisting that her version "is not similar at all. No. It is my very own, special dream speech, not like anyone's dream speech."
A first draft of Mrs. Trump's "I Have A Dream, Which Is Special Dream" has been leaked to the press, and will ring uncannily familiar to many, in this section, for example:
"I have a dream, which is special dream, that my little child Barron will one day live in nation where he will not be judged by the color of his beautiful golden hair but by the content of his character.
"I have a dream, which is special dream, that one day in New York City, where I live with my husband, your future president, Donald Trump, right here in New York City, my little Barron will be able to join hands in Central Park with little boys and girls as sisters and brothers, but only in park for two hours, and then Barron's nanny must bring him home for dinner with his mother and father, your future president, my husband, Donald Trump."
Critics are crying foul, but Mrs. Trump is standing firm.
"This is America, where we are all free to have our own special dream speech. No one else in their dream speech discusses my husband Donald. Go ahead, split your screen on Internet and place me on one side and Martin Luther King Jr. on other side. We will discuss things that are not the same, you will see!"
Mrs. Trump would not confirm or deny rumors that she is working on her husband's potential inauguration speech, tentatively entitled, "Do Not Ask What Country Can Do for You!"
