Hmmmm.. Melania Trump Is Accused of Plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention Speech

Melania's moment

(CNN)At least one passage in Melania Trump’s speech Monday night at the Republican National Convention plagiarized from Michelle 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 first lady’s own from the first night of the Democratic convention in Denver nearly eight years ago.

The controversy quickly overshadowed the speech, which was to have been her introduction to voters. It focused on her immigration to the US and her love for her husband.
