As all who live in Ponyville know “friendship is magic,” and, like a true magical friend, Republican National Convention chief strategist Sean Spicer is a loyal companion, ready to rescue the Republican presidential nominee’s wife from her publicity crises. When asked about the controversy surrounding Melania Trump’s speech in Cleveland, which many have pointed out sounded a great deal like Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech, Spicer claimed that several of the phrases in the 2,000-word statement were similar to others that appear in pop culture. He compared passages from the speech to the words of such political luminaries as Kid Rock and Ice T, claiming that these are “common values.”
Spicer explained, “Melania Trump said, ‘the strength of your dreams and willingness to work for them.’ Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony said, ‘This is your dream. Anything you can do in your dreams, you can do now.’” And that, folks, is why Princess Celestia (a.k.a. Melania) can count on Spicer.
Donald Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson echoed Spicer when she told reporters today that Mrs. Trump wanted to “communicate to Americans in phrases they have heard before.” You know what else Americans heard before on My Little Pony? “Chaos is a wonderful, wonderful thing!”
