Melania Trump: Copyright Infringer?

The irony of Melania Trump’s now well-documented plagiarism of Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech is plain to see. Without getting too political about it, Donald Trump elbowed his way into national politics as the leader of the birther movement, trumpeting (pun intended) the demonstrably false claim that Barack Obama was not born in the U.S. and therefore ineligible to serve as president. That Mrs. Trump would lift portions of a speech singing the praises of then-Senator Obama in order to sing the praises of Mr. Trump is strange at best.
