If your going to plagiarize at least don't copy from the wife of the person your husband is bad mouthing - it just not becoming from someone with an architectural design degree or whatever B.S. they made up.

The more I think about it, it's almost a sign of admiration to plagiarize someone you admire, to lift from someone who's your foe is goofy.

The question is: who's hotter delivering the same speech? I think we all know the answer.

Easier to get upset about 2 sentences in a 17 minute long speech than to actually use your brain to think.

That got a chuckle out of me. If it were team hillary guy or gal in the same limelight it would bore me the same. People have leaned on words since the invention of the pencil.

Michelle's? Hers? IDGAS.

Trump’s wife joins Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Joe Biden as accused plagiarists. Even Michelle Obama was accused of plagiarizing part of her own 2008 DNC speech.

Barack Obama: “Don’t tell me words don’t matter.” As then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) surpassed Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, largely on the strength of his oratory, Clinton said that Obama’s record was “just words.” Obama responded in a speech whose refrain was lifted from then-Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick. The Obama campaign did not even bother to refute the claim. Instead, it circulated examples of lines that it said Clinton herself had borrowed from Obama. The left media defended Obama, saying that he had not committed plagiarism, but merely, at worst, “poor footnoting.”[…]

Michelle Obama: “…the world as it should be.” In 2008, the aspiring First Lady was accused by bloggers of lifting lines for her DNC speech from Saul Alinsky. Alinsky wrote, in Rules for Radicals (emphasis added): “The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be.” Michelle Obama said: “And Barack stood up that day, and he spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about ‘the world as it is‘ and ‘the world as it should be.’” (Perhaps Mr. Obama who left out the attribution.)

I wouldn't read too much into this. Was it appropriate? No. Was it plagiarism? Yeah. Will anyone care outside from late night talk show hosts? Not really.

Just enjoy the comedy fodder and on to the next thing, because aside from the chuckle, who honestly gives two fucks about a speech from a potential first lady?

If it indicates that a campaign is mismanaged or otherwise not ready to handle a general election, they'll be much more obvious warning signs than a few sentences from a speech that no one really even cared to listen to.

How ugly both teams get from now until one crosses the finish line should be fodder alright.

Right...after a few minutes of watching her, because she's hot,I fell asleep. When I woke up a bit later the anchors were only talking about how she copied Obama.

Not sure why everyone's surprised -- writing an original speech is hard work and English isn't her first language so someone wrote this for her. Shame on them putting her in this position.

I think she's getting a hard time because I think she said she wrote the speech.

Figured she'd use her own words to describe what her family meant to her.
Wasn't like she was invoking some deep rhythmic verse you'd admire for future reference.
Figured that architectural degree proved she had her head wrapped around the English language.

EXACTLY!

And boy does Drumph love to call Hillary a liar...

But here we have he and his own wife and presumptive first lady, lying about her "college education". Which has been proven false. She dropped out as a freshman for goodness sake:
