CLEVELAND, OHIO – It became very obvious that Melania Trump’s speech Monday night at the Republican National Convention plagiarized from Michelle Obama’s address to the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
Social media pundits had immediate reactions to the speech of Donald Trump and began posting side-by-side video comparisons with Obama’s speech eight years ago.
The Trump campaign released a statement on the speech after the similarities were uncovered, but the statement did not mention the plagiarism charge.
“In writing her beautiful speech, Melania’s team of writers took notes on her life’s inspirations, and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking. Melania’s immigrant experience and love for America shone through in her speech, which made it such a success,” according to Jason Miller, the senior communications adviser.
