ICYMI, Donald Trump‘s wife directly quoted one of Michelle Obama‘s speeches while speaking at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, OH, and everyone noticed immediately, because, duh, the Internet exists and people can look stuff up. Here is an excerpt from Michelle’s 2008 speech:
“And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them.
Here is the part of Melania’s speech that she’s under fire for:
“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 response, Melania tweeted a statement on July 19, admitting that she didn’t write the speech:

Donald Trump’s campaign has called the accusations “absurd”, and NJ governor Chris Christie agreed, saying that “there’s no way that Melania Trump was plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s speech”, but no one is fooled. Come on, a side-by-side comparison of the speeches doesn’t lie!
