Donald Trump Jr., Let Me Google That For You.
I’m sure everybody knows how Trump’s wife Melania got in trouble for plagiarizing parts of her convention speech from First Lady Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic convention speech. I guess Trump’s son, Donald Jr., was trying to get his revenge. So today, Jr claimed that Barack Obama, in his DNC speech last night, stole the line “That is not the America I know” from Trump Jr’s RNC speech last week.
There’s just one problem. If you Google the phrase “That is not the America I know” you will get many many hits. Including of course, Barack Obama, in a speech in 2010 (and several other times). Or George W Bush, in a speech in 2001 where he spoke about tolerance for Muslims at a mosque. Or Hillary Clinton. Of course, it only took a few minutes for the internet to point this out to Donald, Jr.
Donald Jr., which one of them did you steal it from? Next time you might want to check your facts before accusing the president of stealing something. Especially when doing so will remind everyone about what your step-mom just did.
