Portions of Melania Trump’s RNC speech were plagiarized from a 2008 speech by Michelle Obama

Pablo Picasso once allegedly said that “Great artists don’t borrow, they steal.” Whether or not Melania Trump is a great artist is up for debate, but her penchant for stealing is not.

Mother Jones just reported that a portion of the potential First Lady’s Republican National Convention Speech was plagiarized from a past speech given by current First Lady Michelle Obama.


The text of the borrowed speech was first noticed by journalist Jarrett Hill who posted a partial transcript to Twitter:

For clarity, Mother Jones showed a portion of a speech Michelle Obama gave in 2008 and compared it next to Melania Trump’s version, and the result is undeniable:

Mother Jones’ Kevin Drum also made a notable observation:

It’s interesting that one of the phrases Melania left out was about treating people with dignity and respect “even if you don’t know them.” How very Trumpish.

We can’t wait to hear how Trump’s camp is going to spin this one.
