Brzezinski Says That One of Trump’s Children Was ‘Probably’ Responsible For Melania’s Plagiarized Speech

Is there a reason that no one has yet been fired over in the Trump campaign for the fact that Melania Trump read an evidently plagiarized speech Monday night at the Republican National Convention?

In the minds of some, the answer is yes: because someone who can not be fired was responsible.

According to Morning Joe‘s Mika Brzezinski, one of Trump’s five children was “probably” responsible for the flap. During a discussion about the unprecedented influence that the children in the Trump family have wielded on the campaign, it struck the Morning Joe host that perhaps there was something else that they had a hand in that no one had considered.

“Were one of the kids responsible for Melania’s speech?” she said Wednesday morning, silencing the rest of panel who considered her offer. “Were one of the kids responsible for Melania’s speech?” she repeated matter-of-factly.

“Were one of the kids responsible for Melania’s speech?” she said for a third time. “One of the kids, or one of the in-laws? I’m just asking the question again and again because the answer, probably, ultimately, is yes. Sorry.”

Trump himself was notably mute on the issue Tuesday, further adding to the speculation that the Republican nominee is aware of that the controversy was in-part mobilized by a member of his own family.
