Is Melania Trump a liar?
It would seem on the surface that Melania Plagiarized 50 words of her 1400 word speech.
The liberal-leaning press is having a heyday with this, the idea being to smear Trump and to put him on defense thus controlling the narrative. If Hillary, or her staff, can do anything to take some of the wind out of the sails of the Republican National Convention, they will do it.
Most of the press is liberal leaning, for reasons only they know.
Did Melania lie?
She said she wrote most of the speech with little help as possible.
I would tend to believe that she did indeed write a speech.
I would also tend to think that once she wrote it, the speechwriters took it, and re-wrote it. English is not her first language and even though she is fluent in five different languages, writing a speech that will resonate with the American public is best left to those that do it for a living.
The fifty words she is accused of plagiarizing out of the 1400 word speech are relatively common sentiments or phrases said by different people over the years, including the writers of “my little pony.”
Here is the error.
It is easy to check online if what you are claiming as yours was plagiarized from somewhere else. As a writer, I often check what I write against it, just to make certain that I did not write something that I may have heard somewhere in the past. The Trump Campaign should have done that!
In short, she is not running as an elected anything. There are so many more plusses with her and her husband than the “other person who’s name I will not mention,” That I am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Some of my friends will find this as fodder for many heated posts, and reasons why a corrupt, morally bankrupt, self-serving psychopath should be elected Vs Trump… “Vote how you like, right now it is still a free country…..”
