Following the controversy surrounding Melania Trump’s speech at the Republican National Convention (RNC), in which the media has accused her plagiarizing, Donald Trump’s spokeswoman Katrina Pierson is firing back.
Melania has been accused of lifting lines from First Lady Michelle Obama’s 2008 address to the Democratic National Convention (DNC), but Pierson has a message for those making the accusations.
“These are values,” Pierson said. “Republican values, by the way, of hard work, determination, family values, dedication and respect. And that’s Melania Trump.”
“And this concept that Michelle Obama invented the English language is absurd,” Pierson continued. “Look at the remarks from Laura Bush in 2004. I think you’ll find something similar.”
