Celebrities React to Melania Trump’s ‘Plagiarized’ Michelle Obama Speech
Melania Trump’s speech is all anyone is talking about.
The wife of presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump gave a decent speech at the Republican National Convention on Monday evening (July 18, 2016). Besides the fact that it looked like she taking an eye exam, things started off accordingly with Melania praising her husband. “I’m so proud of your choice for president of the United States – my husband, Donald J. Trump!” she told the cheering crowd. “When it comes to my husband … I will say that I’m definitely biased.”
The only problem is several sentences of her speech are nearly identical to those in a speech given by Michelle Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention — and obviously, Twitter noticed. Celebrities including actors Jesse Williams and Anna Kendrick contributed to the #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes hashtag that immediately went viral.
Donald’s management team has denied allegations that Melania’s speech was plagiarized, calling the accusation “just really absurd.”
