Melania in the Media Crosshairs for Soundng Too Much Like Michelle

       For media hoping to discredit Cleveland, accusations of plagiarism and hand wringing over how the Trump campaign doesn't meet the standards of the massive Clinton effort. Melania Trump's speech bore similarites to one given by Michelle Obama. 
        So much emphasis of the tick tock and little on content.  The whole day was labled a string of failures, but I thought it was pretty good optics.
        Of course this is the Morning Joe take.

As if Moochele was the first to write those words and coined those terms used in her speech.

Anyway, the trophy wife did not do well. She spoke in broken English similar to the instructions written by a Chinaman, where the words don't quite match what was obviously intended. Often repeating herself like her husband does when he speaks on the fly. But this was written ahead of time, so it should have been better.

I agree 942. What difference does it make when trump will invariably lose in November?

"sounding too much like michelle," "melania trump's speech bore similarities" -- no, the passage in question was obviously copied. read your own link. it's completely obvious.

on the other hand, it's actually a blessing for republicans that there's this much focus on the tick tock instead of content.

Cute, Rick, and funny. But the point is still valid: This is blatant plagiarism.

Several key (almost identical) phases were lifted/copied directly from Mrs. Obama's 2008 DNC speech. Do those two women think that much alike – not likely? We must call it for what it is ... and that is blatant plagiarism. Honestly should be the yardstick in such cases and not raw partisanship after-the-fact BS designed to cover one's 6 o'clock, that we used to say.

Did anyone ever care to look up anything about Mooooochele... born Michael so I hear.. If so that could explain alot of whats going on in this country today...

Aren't the 58 words that were "plagiarized" words that every dutiful wife would say about her husband, who happens to be running for President? Aren't those some of the most important qualities we look for in a President? With all the available fodder to try to make Trump look bad, this is the best the press can do. Talk about getting fired? Maybe, the talking heads need thinning.

For chrissakes,she didn't write that speech,any more than moochelle wrote hers.These elite people have speechwriters copying each other's words ad infinitum.Tempest in a teapot,as it were.

Well this might explain why the train wreck of the Trump campaign refuses to fire the persons(s) who brazenly stole, err…. wrote the speech.

"I wrote it -- with a little help as possible," Melania Trump told NBC News' Matt Lauer in an interview Monday.

Just like her husband who possesses an elementary school-level public speaking skill, and the half ass party that nominated him, she’s a fraud and a liar.

But as a recent Trump University graduate, I blame it on the corrupt media and Morning Joe.

Nixon: "I am not a crook!"

Hillary: "I am not a crook!"

As if The Donald or Milania would have ever listened to one word that came out of the Muslim-in-chief's, wife's mouth.

Christ, if you wanted to torture any working class non black American with a process worse than waterboarding, you would just put them in a room with a tape recording of Muchella's whining.

Jeff, I’m with you on this. As a staunch conservative and strong advocate for personal responsibility, I blame the “corrupt media” for this latest Trump campaign mess. They’re just a bunch of meany pants!

I also blame the Morning Joe guy, and Lyin Hillary, and Michelle Obama, and her husband, and the English language for getting in the way.... and Pokemon.

But mostly, I blame Chachi…. especially Chachi.

Well, what was to expected from this dog and pony show? But, on the flipside, Michelle is finally proud to be an American...remember that one folks?? So, in retrospect, maybe reciting the same speech is the way to go. Heck the Obama's fooled us all for 8 years, maybe the Trumps are on to something.

11:33 I don't feel as bad about myself now that you posted your feelings first. I have thought of this many times over the years. Especially hearing the rumors about what establishments her husband used to visit and the fact that she actually filed divorce papers.

But when poor dear BFF of Barry Oprhra asked Moocheele Barry had to defriend her from his BFF list.

Oh me or my, I have to sign my name

Scott Baio,
Happy Days.

Gee, I didn’t know that the Trumps were such fans of Michelle Obama. But then, Don the Con did say Hillary would make a great president.

Quick, somebody fact check me on that.

I don’t get it! I thought Chachi and the hot chick were brilliant! Is there something I missed?

Yours truly,

B F D ... who cares? It was just a damn speech.

I'm more interested in Hilary's cover-ups, misuse of classified emails within her personal emails and why she isn't being charged for breaking the laws.

9:58, I don't think party line clowns like you should mention the word trust. Not your strong point with Hill your woman. Avoid it. Talk about vaginas and common sense this or that. Avoid bribery, perjury, corruption. Not a winning puke.

Wrong again. 11:39 , You really have a lousy batting average and can't . Seem to get or do anything right .

1. Your Oranged Top Vulgarian is going to get whomped in November and end up in history's dust bin , like YOU

2. I am NEVER voting for Billary either , but as bad as she is , she pales by comparison to your Orange Topped ,megalomaniacal buffoon

3 I WILL vote 3rd party as i believe NEITHER party candidate is worth of support and both are unfit to lead

4 . You, on the other hand will continue to lose at life and THAT is certain .
