CNN’s Jeff Lord on Melania Speech Plagiarism: ‘This Is Not Benghazi’

jeff lordCNN’s chief Donald Trump defender Jeff Lord went ahead and tried to downplay the Melania TrumpMichelle Obama plagiarism controversy by playing the Benghazi card.

No, seriously. As the rest of the panelists were criticizing the massive unforced error, Lord said, “You need to have a sense of perspective. This is not Benghazi.”

Van Jones hit back by reminding everyone how the current First Lady was treated years ago:

“I remember Michelle Obama, when she was running for this very position. There were no kid gloves for Michelle Obama. There’s been no kid gloves for anybody in this process.”
