Trump Staff In Hysteria Trying To Explain Melania Plagiarism

Share This Story

The original story: Melania Trump’s speech at Monday’s RNC had striking similarities to Michelle Obama’s (plagiarism).  Original video below:

The similarities are highly questionable, and so the Trump campaign responded within a whole host of different reasons:

Via NYTimes:
“I think if you look at a plagiarism, Jamie — and I remember this from back in school — you’re talking about much broader than what we saw last night, of people who are copying and lifting from speeches. I know her and I don’t believe she would do that. And I don’t believe that last night sounded like anyone other than Melania Trump. I wasn’t sitting there saying, ‘Wow, that sounds like Michelle Obama to me.’ That sounds like Melania Trump to me.” — Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, Trump campaign adviser, in an interview with Jamie Gangel of CNN

“First of all, we think that Melania’s speech was a great speech. Obviously Michelle Obama feels very similar sentiments toward her family. We’re comfortable that the words that she used are personal to her.” — Mr. Manafort at a briefing Tuesday morning

_______

“I don’t blame her. Some of these things are pretty common types of themes.” — Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee chairman

_______

“I’m sure what happened is the person who was helping write this plucked something in there, an unfortunate oversight, and certainly Melania didn’t have anything to do with it.” — Sam Clovis, a Trump campaign co-chairman, in an MSNBC interview

“If the staff did not do their job properly, and didn’t vet the speech properly based on the larger picture and narrative that she put together, then there should be accountability. No question.” Corey Lewandowski, Mr. Trump’s former campaign manager
