RNC Spox Invokes ‘Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony‘ to Dismiss Melania Plagiarism

RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer went on CNN today to give the most unbelievable defense of Melania Trump‘s speech plagiarism so far.

He said that it was 70 words in a 2000-word statement, and the lines were similar to words said by musicians. And then came this:

“Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony said ‘This is your dream, anything you can do in your dreams you can do now.’ I mean, if we want to take a bunch of phrases and run ’em through Google and say, hey, who else has said them, I could come up with a list in five minutes. And that’s what this is.”

Wolf Blitzer said, “The similarities are pretty stark.”

Spicer shot back, “I just quoted Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony. She said something similar too, so did Mrs. Obama plagiarize her too?”
