Isla Fisher didn’t hold back in her acceptance speech at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards on Wednesday. While accepting her Trailblazer award, the actress mocked Melania Trump’s plagiarism scandal and poked fun at President-elect Donald Trump.  “From a young age my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in this life, that your word is your bond, you say what you want to do and you keep your promises, that you treat people with respect,” Fisher said per news.com.au , before confessing she’d copied Michelle Obama’s words verbatim from her speech at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. Melania famously used Obama’s words for her speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention.  ”I figured if Melania Trump can use them and have success, I should try,” Fisher joked.  The 40-year-old actress closed her speech by naming Donald Trump as the inspiration for her continued success.  “I do need to thank Trump,” Fisher said. “I don’t think I’d be here if it weren’t for him showing the world that unqualified orange people can win things.”  If only that weren’t the understatement of the year.  Also on HuffPost Celebrity News & Photos Celebrity News & Photos 1 of 373 Celebrity Photos: December 2016 Lea Michele surprises an Amazon Prime Now customer in LA with a Golden Ticket prize.  Share this slide: Michael Simon More: Donald Trump Michelle Obama Melania Trump Isla Fisher Suggest a correction Comments Close SUBSCRIBE TO & FOLLOW ENTERTAINMENT HuffPost Entertainment is your one-stop shop for celebrity news, hilarious late-night bits, industry and awards coverage and more — sent right to your inbox six days a week.
