Melania Trump plagiarism scandal

SHARE
From Breitbart we learn that Scott Adams thinks, from his experience of script writing, that Mrs Trump's speech was probably not intentional plagiarising Mrs. Obama and will make the former sympathetic to the public.

It could happen so easily that people would genuinely not know that they had plagiarized it. You could imagine that a first draft would be largely plagiarized, just as placeholders.

In my opinion, what is bad is that she lied when she said that she had written it herself without help. Except she is not standing for election, so it doesn't matter.

This tweet made me smile.

  3. The GOP has vilified this woman and everything she does nonstop, but now feels just fine stealing her words. Not really a scandal, but pretty unattractive.
