Donald Trump’s wife, Melania, had to deliver a speech at the Republican National Convention last night. It was an intelligent, well structured and inspiring speech. Too bad that it a huge chunk of it was almost a carbon copy of a speech that Michelle Obama delivered in 2008!
And when I say COPY, I mean some parts it was copied word for word! To make things worse, she actually boasted that she had apparently written most of the speech herself with as little help as possible!
Watch a video comparison of their speeches below:
In the aftermath, the Trump communications adviser admitted in a press release that 'fragments' of the speech were plagiarised. He said: “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.”
It's hardly a success, if you ask us!
