Did Melania Plagiarize Mrs. Obama’s Speech?

The candidate's wife is accused of lifting from Michelle Obama's 2008 speech

Melania Trump was widely hailed for her passionate about husband Donald for about 20 minutes. Even the CNN crew was gushing about her performance, and Van Jones said of Trump’s entrance upon her final remarks, “That entrance was swaggerific!”

However, the good times stopped rolling when someone pointed out that Mrs.Trump’s speech was eerily similar to Michelle Obama’s convention speech from four years ago. The comparisons are striking, but you be the judge. Plagiarism or simply borrowing from an inspiring speech? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

    What would be *really* interesting would be to see if there is a third source they *both* borrowed from. I’d lay high odds there is.
