Melania Trump Releases Statement After Plagiarism Accusations

A statement was released to Melania Trump‘s Twitter account after she has been accused of plagiarizing Michelle Obama‘s 2008 DNC speech at the Republican National Convention on Monday (July 18) in Cleveland, Ohio.

“In writing her beautiful speech, Melania‘s team of writers took notes on her life’s inspirations, and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking. Melania‘s immigrant experience and love for America shone through in her speech, which made it such a success,” the statement read.

Twitter did not take too kindly to this statement, with responses including, “Your response to being accused of plagiarism is a quote from someone else? Are you trying to rip a hole in time?” and “you said you wrote it. Now you say you had a team? You’ve outdone your husband here.”

It’s also being noted on Twitter that Melania originally said she wrote it, yet the statement claims she wrote it with a team. Watch below.

    This doesn’t even warrant a comment. What did we expect? The woman has lied in regard to her so-called college degree, and probably a few other facts in her life. Her husband wouldn’t know the truth if it bite him in his butt. His idea of telling the truth is saying an out and out lie and then admitting it was a mistake. This is not a fellow who should be a breath away from starting World War III. BTW, to all who state he’s their man because he’d change things, those changes could be horrendous.

    you are wrong. his idea of telling the truth is telling a lie and doubling down.

    Um, you all do remember that President Obama used parts of Governor Deval Patrick’s speech in 2008, and Vice President Biden is a known plagiarist. I guess only Democrats are allowed to get away with it…

  • sydney jane

    But, you’re probably okay with your next president being someone who violated our espionage laws, betrayed our military, hates the police and, oh, yeah, who considers herself above the law.

    If only Democrats took half the effort they use attacking Trump and used it to support their congressional representatives. They would never have lost both Houses of Congress.

  • Alien Visitor

    This is why I blame liberals for the mess of Congress. They don’t vote. Polls show that if they vote, Republicans would NEVER get into office.

  • Alien Visitor

    Um, not. He used well established lines like–we hold the truth to be self evident, ask not what your country can do for you, etc.

  • Alien Visitor

    I see you’re coming from the alternate reality that most Fox News viewers exist in.

    If Donald Trump and his slut wife Melania become President and First Lady the United States will be a laughing stock and should successfully be taken out by Russia in a matter of days.

  • Claire

    Will he also ban her IF he becomes POTUS ?
    She can’t write a stence. Plagiat

  • la petite bonnieux

    Unfortunate people as delusional as you can vote…

  • HG

    Lmfao sure!, we saw the two speeches he not only used the governors speech but today a similar one to Busch was also revealed. Obama sure brought change like he promised , racism , hate for police , and terrorism support . Like Rudy said last night extreme radical Islamic terrorists is what they are period!!

  • HG

    You must be on drugs because most intelligent democrats that I know even think she’s above the law, oh I know a step by step video needs to come out before you wake up from lala land . You would have to have a really low IQ to believe any other person besides Bill Clinton would be allowed on a Tarmac to walk across to reach lynch and get his corrupt wife from getting jail time . Nixon got impeached for a lot less than what she walked away with.

  • HG

    No it’s called video proof and the liars own mouth , we actually know reality from delusion and denial.

  • HG

    Lmao, then killary must have triple downed …

  • Juicy Lucy

    Melania leanred how to lie like a champ from her husband. Well done you!

  • person

    he won’t win. And some time soon they will get a divorce. And she will write a tell all saying how much she loathed him and what scum he is. she clearly hates him and married him for his money. As for the plagiarized speech- perhaps the writers deliberately were trying to get at Donald and are not actually on is side? Or else he has the weakest team ever! Not a good person or a good candidate. yuck. He is revolting.

  • Alien Visitor

    No one lies more than fraudulent Trump. Wake up and see through the orange tan and bad hair transplant.

  • Alien Visitor

    Rambling Joe, yes, Obama should be blamed for being black and daring to run for president and win. It’s his fault membership in white supremacist groups jumped 200% after his election. It’s his fault the Birthers, Tea Party and Donald were created to take take country back to a place of white male supremacy. How dare that uppity negro think whites wouldn’t fight back through increased racist attacks and white-supported police brutality. After Emancipation, The Civil Rights Act, he was the LAST straw. Whites have had enough!

    My Step Daddy would whisper real loud when my Mom was fixing to unload on me for an infraction- “You lie and I’ll back you up!” Same thing here, lol

    I thought Melania Trump had a college degree. She lied. However, she does have a degree from Trump University:)

    “Included fragments that reflect her own thinking…”

    Um. How about, “included parts of someone else’s speech that she thought sounded good so she copied them”! First of all, she or her amateur speech writer had to be digging around for inspiration and listened to or read Michelle’s speech. And they were so ethically deficient that instead of “We’ll write something that good” they thought, “I’ll just copy and paste that part.”

    Why do I get the feeling we’ll never find out who actually slapped this speech together?

  • Louisville Cardinals

    Hey all you “liberals”, LISTEN to what she tells Matt Lauer, “I wrote it with as little help as possible”. She NEVER said that she wrote it by herself with no help. You’re as bad as the left leaning media but your smear campaign will still not get CROOKED Hillary elected.

  • Josephina

    The point IS her recital is not original. Her recital is almost word for word. It was lazy, classless and copied from a recent source.

    It is up to the RNC to pay ATTENTTION to detail which it did not.

    People are pointing out the obvious.

  • sanity1

    You wanna believe that lying slut, that’s on you. She claimed she wrote it with a “little” help. Typical Conservaturd spin.

  • sanity1

    Don’t waste your time…as Trump said, he could shoot someone in the middle of the street and these brain dead lemmings will love him.

  • Josephina

    This country was founded on racism… The concept was specifically developed to enslave Africans to create obseen wealth. During the Reconstruction era policies/regulations were created to continue a revised level of oppression and to prevent freed Black people from full equal rights to govern themselves. The construct of racism is very deep rooted in American culture and has NEVER been erased. Anyone born today is either a benefactor or a victim of this man-made hatred of systemic oppression.

    U.S. penal system
    U.S. Voting Rights Act
    U.S. Jim Crow laws
    U.S. discriminatory housing pracitces

    U.S. Employmetnt discrimination

  • Josephina

    She also said that she has been with Donald for 18 years. That would mean since 1998… however, he divorced his mistress-turned 2nd wife, Marla, in 1999…
