WEIRD NEWS WEDNESDAY: Trump Refuses to Fire Melania’s Plagarizing Speechwriter!



The speechwriter who wrote the plagiarized speech , taken from Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech(one paragraph as far as Momzinga knows)—at this time, gets to keep her job for another day or two. I’m certain Trump and his employees have their hands seriously busy right now with the RNC convention going on.

Meredith McIver apologized in a statement sent out by the campaign and said Donald and Melania Trump did not accept her resignation. McIver offered her resignation, but Trump did not accept it. He is giving her another chance. Maybe heads will roll when Donald Trump is not so busy, or maybe he really is a great guy after all.

McIver explained that she included the passages from Michelle Obama’s speech after listening to Melania Trump read passages from the 2008 speech.

“Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama’s speeches. This was my mistake, and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant.”

“The speech was very effective and communicated those feelings,” Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort said Tuesday. “The controversy you’re talking about is not meaningful at all. She’s not a candidate for office. She was expressing her personal feelings about her country and her husband and why he’s best for the United States.”

Manafort on Wednesday agreed Melania Trump’s speech used “similar words” to Obama’s and insisted, “I’m not lying about anything.”

The Republican National Committee also boosted the Trump campaign’s defense, with its communications director Sean Spicer slapping down plagiarism charges by pointing to similar words and themes in everything from John Legend songs to “My Little Pony.”

“The media is spending more time doing a forensic analysis of Melania’s speech than the FBI spent on Hillary’s emails,” Trump said in a tweet. Momzinga.com.
