The big event last night at the opening of the Republican (Hot Mess) convention was the plagiarized speech of Melania Trump. The Trump campaign issued this statement after the speech:
“In her beautiful speech, Melania’s team of writes took notes on her life’s inspirations, and in some instances included fragments of that reflected her own thinking,” the statement read. “Melania’s immigrant experience and love for America shone through her in her speech, which made it such a success.”
After it was noticed that part of the speech was plagiarized the Trump supporters were embarrassed. Chris Christie hopes we will move on. The Huffington Post asked the Trump campaign about the plagiarized speech, but a spokeswoman did not reply to the questions. A Republican Party spokesperson said the Republican National Committee would not be commenting on the issue. Donald Trump’s campaign manager denied allegations Tuesday that Melania Trump plagiarized Michelle Obama’s speech. “To think that she would do something like that knowing how scrutinized her speech was going to be last night is just really absurd,”
Yet Trump’s own people seemed to contradict each other. Jeffrey Lord, a Trump supporter on CNN, said whoever was responsible for the plagiarism “should not be there.” Melania said: “I read once over it and that’s all. Because I wrote it and with [as] little help as possible. ” However the reality is that Melania has been working with speech writers FOR WEEKS. After the video tape comparison came out, Trump communications adviser Jason Miller, in a response early Tuesday, acknowledged that Melania Trump plagiarized “fragments” of her speech and referred to a “team of writers,” essentially refuting her claim that she wrote the speech.
Get ready! FIVE members of the Trump family are scheduled to speak during the campaign. We have already heard from Melania, so we have four family members left. We only have three days to go, so one day there must be two family members on the same day. Given Melania’s remarks, I anticipate that other memorable quotes from the family speeches might be:
Money should be the change you wish to see in the world.
Yes, with enough money, we can.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. You just have to be willing to pay for it.
Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country if you are wealthy.
Here’s looking at your money kid.
Show me the money!
Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with a lot of money.
The British are coming to take our money away.
I have a dream that my little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the amount in their bank account.
Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of money.
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge, but money.
