For my first blog, I decided to write my article on the controversy of Melania Trump’s speech given during the Republican National Convention, in the month of July. Allegedly, Melania Trump’s speech was quite familiar, in the sense of resembling Michelle Obama’s speech delivered in 2008. “The Republican Party woke up to a cascade of finger-pointing and confusion on Tuesday as the Trump’s convention speech had been cribbed from the one that Michelle Obama delivered to Democrats in 2008.” I found this topic to be of interest due to my major being in Public Administration, as well as my interest in government/politics. After reading this article, I concluded that ethics definitely played a major part and role in this controversy. In cases such as this, you began to question the Trump family’s moral ethics and integrity. To be more specific, I would compare this to the ethical concept of vices. Melania’s plagiarized speech, is considered to be immoral, dishonest, and ultimately disappointing. Moving forward, I’d say someone’s virtues/ethics, morale, and integrity are all weighed heavily when looking for the next potential President. Personally, my interests in the next potential President would be someone who is genuine, original, and has the best motives for their country, United States. My post is not made to slander the Trumps; for I am sure Hillary Clinton has done some unethical things herself. However, my intent in blogging this article is to bring awareness to the importance of having good morals, virtues, and ethics as a next potential President. I encourage everyone to do their own personal research on both candidates, and most importantly go vote!
