Melania Trump Accused of Plagiarizing Michelle Obama 2008 Speech At RNC [Video]


Donald Trump‘s campaign manager is avidly denying allegations that Trump’s wife, Melania Trump, plagiarized a Michelle Obama speech on the first night of the Republican National Convention.

Trump’s campaign manager is calling the accusation “just really absurd.”

“To think that she would do something like that knowing how scrutinized her speech was going to be last night is just really absurd,” Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “New Day.”

At least one passage in Trump’s speech Monday night plagiarized from Obama’s address to the Democratic National Convention in 2008.
Side-by-side comparisons of the transcripts show the text in Trump’s address following, nearly to the word, the would-be future first lady’s own from the first night of the Democratic convention in Denver nearly eight years ago.
Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said at a Bloomberg Politics event Tuesday morning he’d “probably” fire whoever was responsible for including plagiarized quotes, though he added, “It all kinda depends on the circumstances and how these things are written.”
Manafort said on “New Day” the words Melania used were not “cribbed” but are common words.
“There’s no cribbing of Michelle Obama’s speech. These were common words and values. She cares about her family,” Manafort said. “To think that she’d be cribbing Michelle Obama’s words is crazy.”

Hmmmmm. Do you think Melania copied Michelle?
