Leave it to good old Donald Trump to thrown the common man under the bus. After days of denying that Melania plagiarized Michelle Obama’s speech, the Trump campaign came up with plan to cast the blame on one of his assistants, and of course it was one at the bottom of the totem-pole.
Trump’s bimbo wife has take no responsibility in the scandal, even though the staffer claims that it was Melania who gave her the Michelle Obama quotes. Below is the plagiarism explanation according to the staffer, Meredith McIver.
In working with Melania Trump on her recent First Lady speech, we discussed many people who inspired her and messages she wanted to share with the American people. A person she has always liked is Michelle Obama. Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama’s speeches. That was my mistake, and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant.
Mr. Trump told me that people make innocent mistakes and that we learn and grow from these experiences. I asked to put out this statement because I did not like seeing the way this was distracting from Mr. Trump’s historic campaign for president and Melania’s beautiful message and presentation.
Today, more than ever, I am honored to work for such a great family. I personally admire the way Mr. Trump had handled this situation and I am grateful for his understanding.
I would have taken this apology has sincere and honest if the Trump campaign did not spend two days lying and denying that they stole from Miss Obama. Donald Trump may not be a regular politician but he is just as deceitful.
