Yes clearly.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcbiGsDMmCM - watch this <2:00 minute video

Is this right? No, the entire apparent 2 months Melania spent writing was clearly watching M.Obama, what do you think about this?

You know to be honest they probably just had the same dude writing their speeches. They are in really similar situations right now.

Very good point. Expect M. Trump said she spent 2 months writing and memorizing this speech.

Imperator, Melania claims to have written it herself...

The speech was obviously copied in part. Can't legitimately deny that. What's sad is how lazy they were. The message was completely generic so they could easily have reworded it without issue but no, they kept it the same and apparently thought no one would notice. Talk about incompetence!

Interesting, although I'm not really buying it. The phrase is practically exactly the same, and the impression I get is that, as I said, they have the same script writer, not that melania is looking up old first lady speeches and taking notes on them.

Remember, English isn't her first language, and honestly she doesn't seem to speak it that well. Having someone else write it for her makes perfect sense.

Agreed on all counts. Like I said, a sign of laziness and incompetence more than anything else.

Melania got Rickrolled in front of millions of people on live television. At the end of the speech she said "He's never gonna give you up and more importnatly he's never ever gonna let you down." In case you don't know that is the chorus for Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give you up.

Link to the speech is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ

I don't think they have the scriptwriter, since scriptwriters typically don't switch parties. Michelle's speechwriter is probably either retired or working for a Democrat right now.

Portions are obviously taken from Michelle.

Sounds like the evil corrupt Hillary is at it again! Damn you Clinton!

Why is everyone talking about plagiarism by Trump's wife when the candidate himself has been plagiarizing Mein Kampf for a year?!

Obviously it was a copy from Obama's speech. No way Melania wrote the speech herself, and of course there was no way that she would have known it was Michelle Obama's speech.

Fault lies with whoever wrote and okay-ed the speech imo, but it seems so dumb a mistake to make...

+1 to this, had they just shifted more pieces around and changed a few more words they would've been off just fine and no one would've cared.

Der,
James Carville raised the question of whether she had possibly been setup as an effort to make Trump/his campaign look bad. Doesn't make too much sense to me since I would think anyone employed by them as a speechwriter would not benefit from doing so but who knows. The real question boils down to who actually wrote that segment of the speech and possibly who, if anyone, tipped off the media/democrats to the plagiarism.

Well I mean you can't really fault the picks, Willie Robertson has a very successful business and is also a southern conservative christian, all core characteristics of the republican party. The fact that he starred in a tv show doesn't really change much, and probably helped since Trump himself also starred in a reality tv show.
