It probably shouldn’t be a surprise given Donald Trump’s background as a reality TV star, but his presidential campaign is looking more and more like something you’d expect to see airing in the middle of the night on TruTV.

All this election needs now is guest appearances from Juan Pablo Galavis from “The Bachelor and Puck from “The Real World: San Francisco.”

But the character at the center of the latest ugly storyline is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee’s wife, Melania Trump.

Mrs. Trump delivered a speech during the opening night of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland Monday night, in which she blatantly ripped off big chunks of Michelle Obama’s address at the Democratic National Convention in Denver eight years ago.

This has got everything you want in trash TV: family infighting, adults behaving like petulant children and even an ex-wife throwing shade. Truly, these people are not here to make friends!

Here’s MSNBC’s Joy-Ann Reid with the latest episode recap.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.
