Melania Trump caught apparently plagiarising speech from Michelle Obama


In 2008, Michelle Obama was in the same position as Melania Trump found herself on Monday night: giving a speech to make the case for her husband’s candidacy to become president of the United States.

“Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values,” Obama said at the time, “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.”
