Leave it to the Democrats and their propagandist media to nitpick something, anything. “Plagiarism really?” Granted there are similarities in two portions of Melania’s speech to Michelle Obama’s DNC speech in 2008. However, in looking at the supposed stolen lines you should notice there’s not many other ways to make these points.
Melania 2016- “My parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise, that you treat people with respect.”
Michelle 2008- “And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values, that you work hard for what you want in life, that your word is your bond and you do as you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect.”
How many times have we all heard “you have to work hard for what you want in life?” And “your word is your bond, do what you say you’re going to do?” And of course “treat others with respect.” Plagiarism? Not at all these statements are repeated a million times a day and are common values taught by parents all over the world. The media and Democrats have no case here as they try and try to put the Trumps in a bad light. They have to lie and twist things in order to create false claims. The same holds true on the similarities about children. Common statements, made repeatedly as we teach our children the ways to achieve their dreams.
Calling out plagiarism is tricky because of language restrictions. I could claim plagiarism against Fox News as I published an opinion piece on my blog on July 17 2016. ” Erdogan Continues to Arrest Opposition, Solidifies Control” it ends with “Turkish Ottoman Islamic State Erdogan has always envisioned”. The Fox News story of July 18 2016 “Erdogan’s appeal to Islamists in wake of failed coup spurs fears of Turkey’s future” covers the same ground and has “fears coup will give Erdogan all the justification he needs to transform the nation into an Islamic state.” Their story and my opinion mirror each other and I was published the day before. They didn’t plagiarize my piece, it was two stories about the same subject of course there will be similarities.
The Democrats and MSM have nothing here and need to stop the lies they so much need to manufacture. Melania Trump doesn’t need to take anything that’s not hers. May be MSM should look into more important issues and stop being propagandist for the Obama/Clinton corruption and failures.
Melania is a lot more trustworthy than Michelle Obama, who joined in the dancing and laughter of George W. Bush at the Dallas memorial for the murdered police officers. Where is that story and outcry MSM? Remember the truth shall set you free.
