Melania Trump is learning the hard way how the mainstream media cares very little about Republican women.
It looks like someone on the Trump team gave her a speech that are very similar to a speech Michelle Obama gave.
You would think that Trump did something outrageous based on how the media reacted.
Clearly, if you’ve been paying attention, there is a huge double standard here.
President Obama has even been accused of plagiarism in his book.
The media didn’t care back then.
Newt Gingrich, who is never scared to speak the truth, had something to say on the subject:
From Washington Examiner:
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich accused the media of applying a double standard with the accusations of plagiarism in Melania Trump’s covention speech.
“It is the most disgusting example of the news media’s desperation to smear somebody who had a home run, bases loaded, amazing speech,” Gingrich told the Washington Examiner.
Gingrich argued similar charges brought against Democratic politicians have not received similar treatment, saying the media wasn’t “upset” when it was reported that President Obama lifted lines from then-Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.
Plagiarism is wrong, but we need to keep things in perspective here.
Attacking Melania is something the Dems would never tolerate if the roles were reversed.
