Did she really think no-one would notice?

And of all the public figures to plagiarise, why Michelle?

And now that she's been caught, why continue with the denials???

You are assuming that she wrote the speech herself

Could it possibly be that she knew nothing about it?

///Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus he did not blame Mrs Trump, but added he would "probably" fire the speechwriter over the controversy.///

Shoud have been part of above post

///It was Mrs Trump's first speech of the campaign and she had the help of a speechwriting team.///
Having said that , even if she knew , i doubt , she would have been allowed to have any objections
We might have own problems when it comes to politics but thank god we are not America !
I watched a programe about DT ;last night .

It was scary to listen to the way that some people were being taken in by the rhetoric of DT and some of his claims

You asked:

That is a reasonable assumption, but according to the Wall Street Journal:

In an interview with NBC on Monday, Mrs. Trump told Matt Lauer that she read over the speech once on the plane to Cleveland and that’s all she needed because “I wrote it, with as little help as possible.”
If she wrote it, I bet it was in crayon and nobody had to help her follow the lines and draw her margin!
"I wrote it, with as little help as possible"

Yeah, right.
Could they have had similar life experiences? That might explain it.
Sorry for the interruption.....

Sandy do you have a shell shaped tattoo on your foot? Is it new what does it mean to you?
Come back Ivana, all is forgiven.
EcclesCake, I do. It's explained in this thread from yesterday.

Please excuse the digression, sp1814
So either Mr Trump employed a bunch of incompetent, plagiarising speechwriters or Mrs Trump is an incompetent, plagiarising speechwriter. Either way, team Trump is not looking good.
Ellipsis...when did the Trump Team ever look good ?

Absolutely it could...but we all express those life experiences in our own words. The similarities are too much for coincidence to be the reason.

In Melania's defence however - she's really quite astonishingly beautiful.
Indeed she is. I wonder what she saw in a billionaire with a comb over?
(apologies to Mrs Merton)
didn't an American presidential hopeful a few years ago nick one of Neil Kinnock's speeches? He wasn't elected.
Is he now the Vice President?
