There is a video circulating of Obama himself ripping off multiple speeches during his tenyor in the White House and during the the 2008 election season. Judge for yourselves

Trump is smart. Look, he got free press. At first it looked horrible for him then guess what....everybody does it! Non Story. All this press, costs him 0. He does it over and over and over...media falls on the sword every single time. Does not matter if it's bad press. You can clean it up later, just get the press. From his book.

Ultimately, isn't it their speechwriters who are ripping off all these other speeches? lol

Absolutely, modern politicians can't order at the drive through without TelePrompTers and an ear piece.

Ah, thank you Fam, that is it exactly.

It seems to me someone rick rolled the Trumps, considering the music that played at the end of the speech. Me thinks this was done intentionally.

More importantly, Obama didn't write 'Dreams from my Father.'

Or is it still taboo to talk about that?

Does this honestly surprise you? I'm sure 98% of all of us are already aware how corrupt the "elite" are.

Trump was mocking them. He knew exactly what he was doing. It also dug up the dirt on Biden getting busted for it in college. It was a nice shot, hit all his enemies with it. They can't say anything because they are all guilty as charged of it.

True.

Who was it that directed President Obama to cry?

There must be 10 or 13 times when the man began to cry during a speech or while making a statement.

Give me a #ing break!

I'm unable to find any remarks from Deval on these, anyone else?

If he were to ever tell a Carlos Mencia joke, he may just cause a singularity!

That clown has never had an original thought from word go, why is this just now a surprise?

Oh yay...more tit for tat.

I'm sure this was discussed WHEN it was relevant. Today's story is not this. Nice try though.

What music was played? Was it "Never Gonna Give You Up, Never Gonna Let You Down"? If so, that would be glorious.

he is using common phrases that we all know. he is not blatantly ripping off others peoples speeches.

"there is nothing to fear but fear itself"
"we need a change"

um last time i checked i think ive heard those phrases a thousand times elsewhere...


melania is a dingbat and could probably never write her way out of a paper bag.

Im sure these men can at least write and formulate good portions of their own speeches with some editing work done from writers not entire speeches copied and handed to them with them reading over it once T_T FAIL

In fairness, it is the speech writers ripping each other off not the candidates. All of this plagiarism stuff is just a bunch of fluff. That is why it is fun to watch Trump eschew the use of the teleprompter. At least something interesting might happen.

Coen Brothers movie that goes down all these twist and turns, really draws you in and then you realize ended up going nowhere. That what Trump does IMO. He starts all this stuff and it goes nowhere but people and the media want to get on the roller coaster.

Well hs IS the worst in my opinion and certainly the worst in my lifetime which sadly extends 6 decades now. You would be hard pressed to find someone worse...especially when you factor in Obamacare and his being the most 'transparent' POTUS ever. Not to mention his failure to get us out of the ME, his war on the 2nd and trashing the Constitution and other campaign promises he hasn't even addressed.

Bush had the excuse of being a moron...Obama doesn't have that he is just bad.
