Melania Trump Plagiarizes the First Lady - and Rick Astley!

Melania Trump made her speaking debut at the Republican National Convention this week and immediately she drew praise from all sides for her poise and speaking ability. Well-done, Melania!

Then five minutes later, some guy on Twitter realized he had heard her speech before because it contained phrases such as "word as my bond." Was that a coincidence? Well, no. It turns out that Mrs. Trump somehow managed to plagiarize a speech given by Michelle Obama in 2008 that was basically a cut-and-paste job.

The the tweets hit the fan!

Update: There have been several twists and turns so far, but the latest spin is that a ghostwriter from several of Donald Trump's books named Meredith McIver has taken the blame for the fiasco. But that in itself caused more confusion as people tried to find information on Ms. McIver and found little or nothing about her credentials or career. Some don't even believe she is a real person (like Donald's alias, John Barron), so stay tuned.

Here's the guy who discovered 
the plagiarism: Jarrett Hill, who admired
Michelle Obama's speech and remembered it

The Rickroll Comparison!

Trump picks Pence for Vice President


Soon after announcing that Governor Mike Pence was his running mate, Trump and his campaign rolled out a new logo for the team. And it was an unmitigated disaster. Not only did the letters "T-P" together remind people of toilet paper, but the logo itself was described by the Guardian newspaper as "Erotic," which may be the nicest thing anyone said about it.

Within twenty-four hours the logo was scrubbed from the official Trump website! What an embarrassment for a campaign that didn't need much else to begin with.

And, it's over!
