Twitter Goes In On Melania Trump ‘Plagiarized’ Speech Starts #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes
Melania Trump gave the speech of her life in Cleveland, Ohio last night! Well, she thought she did. After viewer who tuned in started to notice the similarities in her speech were close to Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech.
At least two paragraphs of Melania’s Trump 2016 RNC Convention speech are the same as First Lady Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech. Are we surprised? Honestly, we’ve had our culture, recipes, and names stolen for years so why do we believe our first black First Lady was off limits?
All of the blame shouldn’t be placed on Melania Trump although she wrote the speech with “as little help as possible.”
It didn’t take long before Twitter picked it up and went to town.

If you want to be the next First Lady it’s only right that you hijack part of her speech.
Twitter has since started a hashtag #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes.

I can assure you if this was Michelle Obama’s speech the right wing media would be broadcasting outside the White House on the incident.
Melania Trump will get away with this like her husband. White Privilege will cloak around them like a cloak of invisibility and no one will see that they have done anything wrong.
According to CNN Trump’s campaign has no plans to fire or discipline anyone over Melania speech.
What do you think of Melania Trump’s speech or are you not surprised?
