Trump Campaign Denies Melania Trump Plagiarized Michelle Obama's 2008 Speech.

This is Weird..

Former model and the third wife of American billionaire Donald Trump…Melania Trump made her Monday night speech which was virtually identical to Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech.

No one was  fired after Melania Trump speech plagiarism episode

On Tuesday morning, Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort told CNN it was “crazy” to think this was plagiarism. “There’s no cribbing of Michelle Obama’s speech,” he said. “These are common words and values — that she cares about her family, things like that. She was speaking in front of 35 million people last night; she knew that. To think that she would be cribbing Michelle Obama’s words is crazy.”

“There was a process, certainly, of collaboration,” he added. “Certainly there’s no feeling on her part that she did it. What she did was use words that are common words.”

“Once again,” Manafort said, “this is an example of when a woman threatens Hillary Clinton, she seeks to demean her and take her down.” (Clinton, as best we can tell, has not yet said anything about this.)

By contrast, Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski argued that staffers were more likely to blame for this mess: “I think Mrs. Trump is a very smart, articulate woman. Her thoughts are her own thoughts. And I think if there was a mistake, it was at the staff level, and the staff should be held accountable.”
