As I’m sure you’ve all already heard, last night, Melania Trump, the potential next First Lady of the United States, made a speech at the Republican Convention after being introduced rather dramatically by The Donald.
All was going well for the Eastern European who was easily able to charm her audience, just as the big D has done throughout his presidential campaign, reports UPROXX.
However things took a rather awkward turn when somebody noticed her speech sounded very similar (i.e WORD FOR WORD similar) to one of Michelle Obama’s speeches.
Being exposed on an international level as a colossal plagiariser, Melania Trump began to go viral as people across the world took to cruel realms of Twitter to show off all the times she’d definitely come up with an inspirational original quote herself.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.
If you’re gonna plagiarise like crazy, don’t do it at the Republican Conference in front of thousands of people, and with millions of others watching across the globe.
As I once said: ‘Be yourself; everyone else is already taken’. Be yourself Melania.
