In her speech last night at the Republican National Convention, Melania Trump spoke on the themes of hard work and striving to achieve one’s dreams, passages that critics say were lifted nearly verbatim from Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech at the DNC. What do you think?

“That’s a shame. If only she’d asked for permission first, I’m sure Michelle would have said yes.”

“I’d have a pretty hard time filling 20 minutes with praise for Donald Trump too.”

“Sure, what Melania did was embarrassing for Trump’s campaign, but wearing an insufficient amount of makeup would have been way worse.”
