Oh - Hypocrisy...Thy name is Liberal.
First Lady Melania Trump is accused of plagiarizing Michelle Obama, again?!? MSN.com:
First Lady Melania Trump came under criticism[.]Ah, The Left and Their Selective Memory. How soon they pretend to forget.
Soon after the violence at the rally in Charlotesville, Virginia, Melania tweeted August 12, "our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts. No good comes from violence." #Charlottesville.
[No sooner had her tweet been published were accusations that she had copied a comment from first lady Michelle Obama last year.]
In 2008, Barack Obama plagiarized from a speech by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. CBS News:
Obama's speech Saturday sounded similar to a speech given by Patrick in his 2006 campaign for governor, according to the video.And I would be egregiously remiss if I did not mention the King of plagiarism, Joe Biden. From Slate (hardly a right-wing publication):
[Obama used many of the same phrases as used by Patrick].
Biden's misdeeds encompassed numerous self-aggrandizing thefts, misstatements, and exaggerations that seemed to point to a serious character defect.
[Biden adapted, for his own speech, a previous speech given by British Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock.] (Heh- "adapted." Sounds better than "stolen" or "plagiarized". - DD)
Over the next days, it emerged that Biden had lifted significant portions of speeches from Robert Kennedy and Hubert Humphrey. From Kennedy, he took four long sentences in one case and two memorable sentences in another.
If that wasn't bad enough, Biden admitted the next day that while in law school he had received an F for a course because he had plagiarized five pages from a published article in a term paper that he submitted.
And Biden conceded that he had exaggerated in another matter by stating in a speech some years earlier that he had joined sit-ins to desegregate restaurants and movie theaters, and was thus actively involved in the civil rights movement.
Newsweek soon reported on a C-SPAN videotape from the previous April that showed Biden berating a heckler at a campaign stop. While lashing out at the audience member, Biden defended his academic credentials by inflating them, in a fashion that was notably unbecoming and petty for a presidential candidate.
"I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect," Biden sniped at the voter. "I went to law school on a full academic scholarship." That claim was false, as was another claim, made in the same rant, that he graduated in the top half of his law-school class. Biden wrongly stated, too, that he had earned three undergraduate degrees, when in fact he had earned one[.]
|"I graduated summa cum laude with 17 and 11 Phd's in Lying."|
I also must mention Biden's five military deferments, for asthma. Five is also the number of deferments of Dick Cheney.
It's a bit puzzling that someone with asthma played college football. Because doesn't dirt and dust and sand - and those sometime damp, wet and humid football Friday Night Lights' games - act as an irritant to asthma?
But oh, wait - Joe was lying about his college football career too.
I wonder if THIS SONG was written with Biden in mind?
Well, nobody messes with Joe. Nobody.
