Nothing wrong with a little plagiarism as long as you don’t get caught. First Lady Wannabe Melania Trump needs a new speech writer–one who uses original words, not plucked from the speech of the current first lady.
Then again, Melania’s competition is Bill Clinton. I have to admit, she is prettier than he is, just not as smart.
The Trumpers need to get this one behind them and fast. Campaign manager Paul Manafort will have none of that, according to TPM.com:
Jarrett Hill appeared to be the first to notice that Melania Trump’s speech lifted significant portions from Michelle Obama’s speech, but Manafort blamed reports of plagiarism on Hillary Clinton.
“This is once again an example of when a women threatens Hillary Clinton, how she seeks out to demean her and take her down. It’s not going to work,” he said on CNN.
It seems to me that the video comparison speaks for itself. The Trump campaign has to own this one. The denial is pathetic.
