BUSTED: Melania Trump Caught Shamelessly Plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC Speech

The Republican National Convention has been equal parts bizarre and embarassing, and the speech by Trump’s third wife Melania Trump was no different.

Not only did she curiously announce at the “Family Values” convention that she had been dating Trump for a year before he got divorced from his second wife Marla Maples, it appears that she shamelessly plagiarized a speech that Michelle Obama gave to the 2008 Democratic National Convention, even though she promised reporters that she had written it herself.

It appears that she has picked up on her husband’s penchant for blatantly stealing and appropriating from others in order to claim credit for herself.

Melania’s speech read:

My parents impressed on me the value of 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. Show the values and morals in in the daily life. That is the lesson that we continue to pass on to our son.

We need to pass those lessons on to the many generations to follow. [Cheering] Because we want our children in these nations to know that the only limit to your achievement is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.

The First Lady’s speech read: 

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.

And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation. Because we want our children — and all children in this nation — to know that the only limit to the height of your achievements is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.

There is no rhyme or reason to why she would have plagiarized so obviously – unless it was simply another classic Trump stunt – steal what other people have done successfully and repackage it into a ostentatious and gaudy but insubstantial mockery.

Here’s a side-by-side video comparison:
