During Monday night's RNC opening speeches, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's wife, Melania, spoke, and allegedly took a few pages out of Michelle Obama's book. Specifically, part of her RNC speech resembled some of what Obama had to say about her husband at the 2008 DNC. And in an epic turn of events, John Legend combined the RNC with the Kimye/Taylor Swift drama in one tweet.
After Kim Kardashian West released a phone call between Kanye and Swift to her Snapchat on Sunday night in which Kanye tells Swift about the line in his song "Famous" — Swift initially said she had not heard the line or the song before it was released — the singer wrote, "I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative." She's not the only one who wants to be excluded from some of the narratives going around these days.
Chief strategist of the RNC Sean Spicer suggested on Tuesday morning that Melania Trump "used common phrases used by Kid Rock, John Legend, Public Enemy, Akon, House of Pain," prompting Legend to respond à la Swift with the most glorious tweet, in which he asks for the same courtesy as Swift. In a wonderful combination of RNC drama and celebrity feuds, Legend's insight is definitely welcomed.
In a phone conversation that Kardashian West posted to her Snapchat on Sunday, Kanye can be heard sharing the line "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," to which Swift responds, "I know, I mean it's like a compliment, kind of." Swift previously denied that Kanye ever reached out about the lyric.
Just a day later, journalist Jarrett Hill took to Twitter with an important insight into where Trump's "American values" speech actually came from, sharing Michelle Obama's 2008 DNC speech.
And before the Internet could recover from either scandal, Legend chimed in with his combination of both incidents. So much shade.
