Melania Trump didn’t plagiarize FLOTUS Michelle Obama after all. At least that’s what RNC chief strategist Sean Spicer is saying in defense of Mrs. Trump.
We’re talking about 70 words, three passages,” Spicer told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday. “I mean, if we want to take a bunch of phrases and run them through a Google and say, ‘Hey, who else has said them,’ I can do that in five minutes,” Spicer said. “And that’s what this is.”
Spicer also sited John Legend, Kid Rock as folks who used the “common phrases” mentioned in Trump’s speech.
The Trump campaign has announced that no one will be fired for the mistake, and Spicer blamed the Clinton Campaign for making this a public controversy (even though it was twitter users who discovered the plagiarism). John Legend responded to his name being used as a source in a tweet and a new bio. Check it out below.
I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative https://t.co/I46VtY2CXI
