#FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes — saying every single memorable quote Melania Trump never did.
With her latest speech at the Republican National Convention, the words were compelling, touching, and struck a chord with many audience members soaking it all up. The problem? These words may not have been 100% hers.
Internet sleuths are coming out with side-by-side video proof that many of the words and thoughts were taken word-for-word right out of First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech. See for yourself.
So did Melania Trump’s speech writers co-paste Michelle Obama’s speech?
Twitter agrees. In fact, they’ve started making the hashtag #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes a thing.
