Uh oh! It turns out that Melania Trump’s RNC speechwriter Meredith McIver may not be all that on board with her boss’ political leanings. After plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC address, now it’s been revealed that Meredith is actually registered as a Democrat! Could she have sabotaged Melania’s speech as a result?
After plagiarizing Michelle Obama, 52, to craft Melania Trump‘s Republic National Convention address, it turns out Meredith McIver, 65, isn’t even a member of the political party that Donald Trump, 70, will be representing in the 2016 presidential election. According to the New York Daily News, the longtime Trump Organization staff writer is actually a registered Democrat who lives on the Upper West Side of New York City. Needless to say, she could easily be pinned as trying to sabotage Melania’s speech to make the Republican front-runner’s wife look bad. But the paper also notes that she’s super tight with the Trumps and that might explain why they wouldn’t let her quit and forgave her “innocent mistake.”
According to her bio for All American Speakers, Meredith has worked closely with Donald since 2001 and has helped ghostwrite four of bis books, including 2004’s best-seller “Trump: How to Get Rich.” While she might be great a helping Donald churn out hit books, she certainly blew it at political speechwriting.
Oddly enough, no news organization has been able to track down Meredith after she released a statement detailing how Melania read some passages of Michelle’s speeches to her to show her what type of direction she wanted in her RNC address. Meredith claimed to have not actually checked Michelle’s speeches and just changed the phrasing on what Melania gave her, resulting in the sensational plagiarism scandal. She claimed to have offered her resignation to Donald following the dramatic blowback, but he rejected it, saying people make innocent mistakes. Donald has gone on camera July 20 to confirm he refused to allow her to quit because she made an innocent mistake. So if he believes in her, it means she probably didn’t go out of her way to hurt or sabotage Melania and Donald by causing such a scandal.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Meredith made an innocent mistake? Or did she try to make Melania look bad?
