feature:#famousmelaniatrumpquotes: twitter’s hilarious response to melania trump plagiarizing michelle obama

July 19, 2016

Last night- the first night of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland- brought much in the realm of entertainment. From Trump’s Kanye-esque entrance, to the hundreds of republicans booing him, trying to salvage their reputation with another candidate- there was much to see. The biggest take-away though, has to be the blatant plagiarizing of a one Melania Trump, as she recited a speech that was a little too word-for word what First lady Michelle Obama said at the 2008 Democratic Convention. Side by side comparisons of the speech have further proven the undeniable similarities/copying- and though the Trump administration vehemently denies any plagiarism, the internet-  the Comedy central roast that it is- wasted no time in creating the hashtag #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes exposing the ridiculousness of it all. Twitter is exploding; everyone from celebrities to activists to your next door neighbor have seized the opportunity to get their punches in, and it’s getting more and more hilarious. Check out some of the best ones below.
