Apparently, Melania Trump Plagiarized Again…This Time Copying Marla Maples Of All People


melania-trump-speecheditedMuch of the scuttlebutt around Melania Trump’s much-anticipated speech earlier today was around her ironically decrying cyberbullying. Obviously, Twitter had a field day with that, considering her husband’s social media habits.

However, it also appears that Mrs. Trump called back to another famous speech she gave. As you may recall, Melania got into a whole bunch of hot water this summer when it was discovered that she had lifted whole portions of her at first well-received RNC address from Michelle Obama. Well, this time around, it looks like she stole from another well-known woman.

Yair Rosenberg highlighted how another Twitter user — who initially realized Melania lifted the phrase from Marla — knew for certain that Mrs. Trump could only have gotten that phrase from Donald Trump’s second wife.

There was some reaction on Twitter about this second foray into plagiarism for Melania.

Some even noted that she may have gotten it from Rocky Horror Picture Show, which featured a similar line.

Seem unlikely that this will get the traction that the first plagiarism scandal did, but it will probably be good for a chuckle or two for some.
