    Melania Trump’s Plagiarism Matters

    by Josh Levin

    Sure, it pales in comparison with other Trump transgressions. That doesn’t mean we should ignore it.

    On Monday night, Melania Trump stood onstage at the Republican National Convention and said, “From a young age, 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.”

    In 2008, Michelle Obama stood onstage at the Democratic National Convention and said, “Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values. Like, you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond, that you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect.”

    Williams retweeted a tweet from user @meakoopa, who pointed out that Trump's plagiarism provided an example of how white people have systemically exploited and taken credit for black labor in America.

    Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Tuesday that whoever is responsible for writing the should be fired.

    "Whoever was the staff person who wrote this speech should be held accountable and should be fired," Lewandowski told CNN's John Berman and Kate Bolduan.

    Lewandowski, who is a CNN contributor, was fired from the Trump campaign last month.​

    If this was a copyright issue, I'd say Michelle Obama and company would have a strong case.
    For now, nobody is claiming credit for it.

    Don't blame them either.

    Melania Trump: The Story Behind the Speech She Didn’t Deliver


    ... According to a knowledgeable source, Kushner indicated his approval of the speech draft shortly after it was submitted, but the speechwriters never heard from him again about it.

    The speech delivered by Melania Trump last night included almost nothing of the draft written by Scully and McConnell.

    In an interview with NBC News aboard Trump's plane Monday evening ahead of her speech, Melania Trump said she wrote her speech with "as little help as possible."

    Melania Trump lacks any form of original intelligence. She has draw on talent and brains from some outside source.The usual trick of a dummy.
