Melania Trump got busted cribbing her RNC speech from Michelle Obama


A lot of people spoke on the first day of the 2016 Republican National Convention, and one of them was the potential First Lady, Melania Trump.

But some of that speech sounded familiar, as journalist Jarrett Hill noticed.

Here are some side-by-side comparisons.

So that's awkward.

It also pulled a little bit from Rick Astley.

Of course, this could be a complete coincidence, at least according to RNC Chief Strategist Sean Spicer:

What do the Trumps themselves have to say on the matter?

Melania's speech took Twitter by storm.

So, what does this mean? Well, George W. Bush's chief speechwriter, Michael Gerson, had this to say:

"An error like the one Melania Trump committed last night tells us that the Trump campaign lacks seriousness and structure, which is also demonstrated by its divisive style, weak ground game and poor fundraising numbers."
