Just imagine if the Democrat’s wife had that kind of accent? Can you say Commie??
And, is she legal?July 18, 2016 at 7:54 pm #21680
And, who from Queen approved the use of their song We Are The Champions?July 18, 2016 at 8:56 pm #21682LangstonParticipant
Her father was actually a member of the Communist Party in Slovena. Have not heard much about that. Again, can you imagine the outrage if Michelle Obama’s father had been a member.July 18, 2016 at 9:46 pm #21684July 19, 2016 at 9:38 am #21691
Trump’s campaign manager angrily denied the plagiarism across the morning news programs today. Somehow, he alleged it’s Hillary’s fault. Because of course it was.
Followed by Chris Christie admitting that “only” around 6 or 7% of the speech was plagiarized.
Note from the real world: Using any words in a speech that are not your own without proper attribution is by definition plagiarism. The percentage is irrelevant. Try that defense in school and see where it gets you.
Speaking of school, Mrs. Trump lied about that in her speech, too. She never graduated college.
Of course, none of this is actually her fault. It’s Donald Trump’s fault. There’s no way she wrote a thing she read last night. Trump’s campaign staff prepared the text of that speech. She’s basically just a trophy wife that Donald collected and has now thrust into the limelight due to his inane run for the presidency. She’s, rightly, uncomfortable with all of it and is not in any way prepared to deal with the onslaught that comes along with being married to someone seeking high public office.
I feel mildly bad for her.
Day one of the RNC was a total shit show. Chaos on the floor, yelling and screaming from delegates denied the roll call, the podium abandoned for stretches of time, followed by hours of red faced, irrational, illogical, and fact challenged fear mongering from the B and C list speakers.
Who knew we lived in such a dystopia? That’s quite the positive vision the R’s are laying out. LMAO.July 19, 2016 at 10:35 am #21692proud2baconservativeSpectator
So what’s the big deal about borrowing a few lines from another speech? It’s not as if they are iconic lines like “four score and seven years ago…” or the result of any profound or original thinking. It’s very basic stuff. President Obama or Vice President Biden wouldn’t do that too?
“She’s basically just a trophy wife that Donald collected and has now thrust into the limelight due to his inane run for the presidency. She’s, rightly, uncomfortable with all of it and is not in any way prepared to deal with the onslaught that comes along with being married to someone seeking high public office.”
She’s not riding his coattails to something bigger and better as has done her husband’s opponent. She’s not looking for $250,000 speaking gigs. They are making a sacrifice for the good of the country.
It’s also very demeaning to refer to her as a “just a trophy wife.” She’s a successful woman in her own right.July 19, 2016 at 10:51 am #21693

If you are going to try to assert that if roles were reversed, and Michelle Obama had plagiarized from Laura Bush you wouldn’t be making a stink out of it, you’re an even bigger hypocrite than we already know you to be.
Fact of the matter, FLOTUS doesn’t need to plagiarize.
She’s more than up to the task.
For all the many fine qualities I’m sure Mrs. Trump has, she’s no more up to the task of FLOTUS than Donald is for POTUS.July 19, 2016 at 1:06 pm #21696AmusParticipant
I knew it!!
It’s Hillary’s fault!!July 19, 2016 at 1:32 pm #21700
They’re also trying out the “My little Pony” and “John Legend” defense today on cable news. We have officially entered The Twilight Zone.
In other clown show headlines, The Donald was a no show today for a meeting with RNC business leaders at The Browns stadium. He simply failed to appear without notice. Apparently he flew back to New York.
Maybe he’s looking for his tax returns?
Oh, but stand by! Tonight UFC president Dana White, another soap opera actor, and several of Trump’s kids are going to tell us how great Trump is.July 19, 2016 at 1:56 pm #21701Andy BrownParticipant
