Katie bar the door! It’s Melania-Gate!!!
CNN’s GIGANTIC headline this morning was in even bigger lettering than their headline after three police officers were ambushed in Baton Rouge on Sunday.
Yes, I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Melania Trump borrowed some language from Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democrat Convention speech.
Here’s the clip of the similar portion:
Whoops. Um. That appears to be the wrong clip.
Sorry. My bad. I heard “plagiarism” and “Obama speech” and just made an honest mistake.
Let’s see if I can find it.
Ah, yes. Here we are.
I’m sorry. Were they similar? I’m not saying they weren’t, but honestly, whenever I have to watch Michelle Obama speak, I tend to, out of self-preservation, suffer hysterical blindness coupled by a loud roaring in my ears.
I’m not saying it wasn’t kind of stupid for Melania Trump to use Michelle Obama’s nonsensical, deeply disingenuous tripe as a template. It was. But, just a reminder. The First Lady is not a position of authority. The First Lady is not an elected office, nor is it an official Presidential appointment. She’s the wife of the President. That’s it.
For CNN to splash that headline across their main page as though Melania Trump committed some crime is a little over the top.
I mean, it isn’t like Melania mishandled classified information and did favors for foreign governments in exchange for hefty donations to the Donald Trump Foundation.
To be fair, Hillary is going to plagiarize her speech from Karl Marx.

Let’s be honest here. For journalists to act like their hair is on fire because Melania Trump’s speech was not original is a little like the pot calling the kettle black.
If you are a regular listener to Rush Limbaugh, you know his frequently used “Media Montage” audio clips where he shows how a dozen or so television news people will utter the exact same words when reporting on a story — almost as if they are given the Democrat Talking Point playbook in advance.
Regular content-borrowers who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones my friends.
If journalists weren’t able to “borrow” from other writers, the major newspapers would be a one-page flyer and 24-hour cable news would be 7 hours and twenty-two minutes.
Look, CNN is making this into Melania-Gate for one reason and one reason only. They believe it will help them discredit Donald Trump and give Hillary a win in November. In a world with honest reporting from a Free Press, this would have warranted a small blurb before the news moved on to stories that are actually, well, newsworthy.
But we don’t have honest reporting.
And we don’t have a Free Press.
We have a Democrat/Media Complex hell-bent on framing every narrative in just the right way to advance the agenda of the Left.
