Yep, It Looks Like Melania Trump Straight Up Stole Michelle Obama's Speech
On Monday night at the Republican National Convention, Melania Trump delivered what was arguably one of the most uplifting speeches of the day. Compared to what was said by most of the other speakers, her speech sent a decidedly optimistic and inclusive message.
But there's just one thing: It looks like Melania plagiarized her speech from Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
The similarities are impossible to deny.
Check out this segment of Melania Trump's speech from Monday night:
And now read this passage from Michelle Obama's speech in 2008:
If you're still not convinced, check out this video, which really highlights how close the two speeches are, breaking it down line-by-line:
Interestingly, Melania said she wrote the speech with "as little help as possible."
But it sure seems like she got a whole lot of help from the first lady, without her permission.
A lot of people are stunned.
Will this hurt Trump's campaign?
It's hard to say at this point. But given he's been caught in blatant lies throughout this election cycle, and still remains in the race, it seems unlikely.
In fact, the media's uproar about this might only serve to strengthen Trump's claims that the liberal media is simply biased against him, and will say and do whatever to discredit him.
Simply put, Trump's lies just haven't mattered. They haven't hurt him during this election.
This man just gets away with things that other candidates could never do.
Unsurprisingly, Trump's campaign denies there was any plagiarism.
But any reasonable person can see Melania Trump's speech has far too many similarities to Michelle Obama's.
This debacle has sparked a new trend: #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes.
People are pulling famous quotes and pretending Melania said them.
This has definitely been one of the strangest and saddest elections in recent memory, and perhaps ever. Is it November yet?
