Oops: Melania Trump Plagiarizes Her Husband’s Ex-Wife In First Speech Since RNC

The last time Melania Trump gave a major speech, it was at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. In that speech, she stole several passages from Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech.

Today, in her first major speech since the RNC, Melania Trump apparently has doubled down on plagiarism – this time, though, she stole words from Donald Trump’s ex-wife, Marla Maples.

A simple Google search of the line shows that aside from the Trump speech today in Pennsylvania, the only other result comes from an interview with Donald Trump’s ex-wife.

According to Rosenberg, Melania Trump didn’t just deliver some throwaway line commonly used in political speeches. Instead, she went full Michelle Obama for the second time in two big speeches.

Of course, this is hardly the fault of Melania Trump alone. Certainly, she didn’t ask to be thrust into a presidential campaign, especially not one like her husband’s.

Instead, it is the fault of a campaign that apparently can’t figure out how to write original speeches for a major figure in all presidential elections – the candidate’s spouse.

Once again, Melania Trump’s attempt make her husband more appealing to suburban women voters seems to have come up short. Instead, she and the Trump campaign are facing criticism for the second plagiarism episode of this election cycle – a perfect two-for-two record – and the fact that she spent much of the speech decrying cyberbullying, a hobby her husband engages in quite often.
