I don't think it's plagiarism at all.
I think Obama and Trump both hired the same idiot speech writer for their wives... which means both boys have access to the same people.
Ergo, they're both a member of the Big Boys' Club of America.

Personally I wouldn't have the balls to get up in front of millions of people and give any speech. It makes it worse that it is going to be hyper-analyzed by every talking head in the universe. She is braver than me.

You're not doing them or the GOP any favors by trying to justify this. It's bad and needs to be reconciled in a decisive way. But, alas, it will most likely result in Trump doubling down and getting nasty as well as more bumbling by his organization because, if the pressure was on before...
That is some out of the box thinking there. A different take than others in this thread

Word for word almost.
I really hate to think of people cheating. I am a big believer in giving the benefit of the doubt.
The words are close. But they also don't display uncommon concepts
A speech about family values is going to present these types of concepts.
We were raised to work hard. We want to pass these values on . Yada yada.
I think ill just wait to see if there's a reason offered.

Trump is a genius at generating publicity!
On the scale of things, his wifes speech is inconsequential and unlikey to sway voters either way. Most people are saying they feel sorry for Melania.
But the publicity already generated In the media is PRICELESS.
