Did Melania Trump Plagiarize Michelle Obama's Speech?
Donald And Melania Trump
Melania Trump's RNC Speech
The tale of the speech
When Melania Trump delivered her historic speech at the Republican National Convention it was met with much ''praise'' after the speech. Unfortunately it was not the "praise" she would have been expecting and hoping for. Instead she was heavily criticized by many around the world for apparently plagiarizing Michelle Obama's Democratic National Convention Speech. In my opinion, the plagiarism of speeches especially around politics has been around for a very, very long time. Back in 2008 around the time of elections the Obama campaign actually accused the Clinton campaign of plagiarizing. Michelle Obama herself in 2008 was also accused of taking some her lines of her DNC speech from Saul Alinsky.
In conclusion, I think that people should realize that many speeches of the past have been plagiarized in the past especially at these conventions for both the Democratic And Republican parties. Most of the hate is not only coming from her speech but the fact that she is associated with Donald Trump who has extreme hatred around the world at the moment. People took this speech too seriously and caused a lot of undue drama and hatred towards Melania Trump which she probably didn't deserve.
Side By Side Comparison Of Melania Trump's And Michelle Obama's Speeches
Looking at the above video it can be clearly distinguished that both speeches are similar. However, it is well known that these "big" political speeches are written by a team of writers and not by the people saying the speeches themselves.
