Cleveland, OH—Melania Trump attempted to explain allegations that parts of her speech at the RNC convention was plagiarized from an earlier Michelle Obama speech. Mrs. Trump told the press, “I am willing to look at what happened, because the unexamined life is not worth living.” She then went on to say, “The only thing to fear about plagiarism is plagiarism itself. A speech by any other name would sound as sweet. One small speech for man, one giant leap for mankind,” and finally, “Ask not what my husband can do for you, but what you can do for my husband.”
When asked who wrote her convention speech, Melania replied, “I wrote it and, remember, good artists copy, but great artists steal.” She was then asked if someone should be fired. She replied, “To err is human: to forgive, divine, and keep in mind well behaved women seldom make history and hell has no fury like a woman scorned. Oh, and the pen is mightier than the Google! Remember the first part, you should ask about doing stuff for my husband.”
To a dismayed press she then recited Churchill’s entire, “We shall fight them on the beaches!” speech, without ever referencing Churchill or the Nazi incursion of 1940.
