On Tuesday, July 19, 2016, Melania Trump, the wife of the Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump gave a speech at the Republican National Convention that sparked outrage.
Melania was accused of lifting parts of the speech Barack Obama‘s wife Michelle gave at the Democrat National Convention in 2008.
Many observers have expressed their displeasure with the Trump team on various social media platforms.
Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams took to Twitter to mock Melania in a series of tweets and retweets. “Queen of Television” Shonda Rhimes has also voiced her displeasure.
Melania’s writers said the plagiarism wasn’t intentional as Melania only shares the same ideologies with Michelle and their words happened to match.
An employee of the Trump team has since taken the blame for the plagiarism.
