Michelle also stole, i don't know if it was the same speech, but most of one of her speeches from saul alinsky. Sooo not like she is any better
@StiffWood, although I agree, we shouldn't really condone plagiarism just because they stole it from someone who plagiarized. Sorta like if a robber stole something from a different robber.
@Charlemagne, I'm not condoning it. They are both wrong in their actions. Melanie Trump is just the only one who will catch heat, because of last name Trump.
@StiffWood, All the speeches are written by some other writers and they are all plagiarized. Obama has done plenty of speeches copying from others
@StiffWood, what a shallow effort at intelligence. Did you check on this yourself, or just parrot what you heard? Michelle quoted her husband, and used 11 words (not an entire speech) that were similar to Alinsky's. Alinsky: "The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and where fores of life as it is lived, THE WORLD AS IT IS, not our wished for fantasy of THE WORLD AS IT SHOULD BE." Michelle: "And Barack stood up that day, and he spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about THE WORLD AS IT IS and THE WORLD AS IT SHOULD BE." She is openly quoting her husband. He may have used the same two phrases as Alinsky, but Alinsky used them in reference to judgment and contrasted them. Barack used them as goals for the future, and in consonance. Mariana used Michelle's exact same words, in the exact same sequence, in the exact same cadence, in the exact same setting. The Donald appreciates lazy people who believe what he says, because he knows you won't check.
@StiffWood, and then Melania rickrolled the audience.
@abecedarian, i looked it up after hearing about her speech plagiarism. And did not care to look into the details, just thats she had copied his speech. I admit i was lazy not to go into hours of research before presenting to funnypics community that it's not just Trumps that copy, and not saying this makes it any better but Melanie didn't even write the speech, so the plagiarism should not be blamed on her, but the actual speech writer.
@StiffWood, While I kinda agree, Melania and the Trump campaign claimed that she wrote it with "little help" (even though we know she had a team of writers)
@Richard Cypher, that is the laziest comment I've ever seen.
@abecedarian, D@mn it i want to kiss you on the mouth right now. I hope you're American because i would kill myself and everyone else in this country if it meant just a handful of people like you were the only Americans. We all need to stop getting opinions from other opinions that are from other rumors/opinions. Only facts. And if you dont know alot about a subject,its okay, just say so and go on your way instead of spreading half-a$$ed bullsh*t out of your mouth.
@StiffWood, Actually one staff writer took the blame but said Melanoma quoted her passages from Michelle Obama's speech because Melanoma admired Michelle, wrote them into the speech without doing due diligence, then Melanoma read through it once before speaking and apparently didn't notice those were the exact words she dictated to the staff writer. They scapegoated the staff writer to take the focus off the dumb bimbo married to the sorry excuse for a presidential nominee
@Charlemagne, what about Robin Hood? He stole from people who stole?
@The nOly One, and he was a criminal. Just because the motives are good doesn't excuse the crime.
@StiffWood, I love that people's first response is to deflect. "So and so did it too!" It's like little kids fighting on the playground. Pathetic.
@abecedarian, look up Mrs. dole's speech from 1996...Michelle Obama stole the lines from that speech. Complete with the whole bit about how her parents taught her that "my word is our bond."
@CommanderShep, Can you blame her? English is like her fifth language. She probably didn't even realize she was plagiarizing. Her writers should have checked. And every politician has writers, so it's not an insult.
@Godricgryffindor , It wasn't meant as an insult. I apologize for my lack of clarity. What is being said is that she wrote it mainly on her own
@CommanderShep, Oh I see now, my apologies. Yeah everyone's attacking her specifically, they don't realize it's not entirely her fault.
@Godricgryffindor , It's fine. I can understand the confusion. This is situation is similar to where an author would unintentionally plagiarize in a novel. It's the fault of both the author and the editor, but the author will catch the most heat because his name is on the cover
@StiffWood, it took me 60 seconds to find this info, so yes, I believe people have an obligation to do minimal checking before posting potentially polarizing propaganda.
@abecedarian, well i did not look at a second source, the one i looked up did not show the speech, but did say how she copied from his speech. My problem is that nobody will look at a liberal and see their flaws. But see a conservative and boom they have no intelligence, and my comment did not show the most, as it was not wholly researched. But that is one instance from one person, most other political subjects from people that actually matter on the political landscape, I have done actual resesrch on.
@Chef Goldblum, Have you ever thought that, maybe it's because popular is so liberal that people just get tired of how one sided everything is? I mean just within maybe the past month and a half have memes making fun of Hillary been popular. But Donald Trump.has been made fun of the whole time. Anytime a riot or a shooting takes place, it's ban guns, dang we had a speech from Obama where he basically compared christianity to ISIS with the inquisition i believe. So yes conservatives might be a bit cranky when this stuff only happens to conservative party members
@StiffWood, "most of one of her speeches". Read that, instantly laughed away your comment. Thanks!
@Greedy Ghandi, from the source i read, she stole a speech from saul. It said she stole the speech. I gave the benefit of the doubt and said most of that one speech, if you will read my other comments i have since looked at other sources and seen that it was just her citing her husband, who took what saul said a bit. But yes, stay on your high horse, you are superior to someone named stiffwood on a funny pictures app. You should be proud and tell all your friends and family.
@StiffWood, Yes, superior in the fact I don't ruin a funny picture with "fact based data" bud.
*rides off on incredibly tall horse to inform family of outrageous accomplishments*
@Greedy Ghandi, okay all this aside, I'm going to draw an unnecessarily tall horce once i get home. It's gonna be great, but cool. You win. I surrender, lay down my arms, get on my knees, commit sedoku. (Obvious mistake just in case you actually think i was serious) And die with what dignity i have left
@StiffWood, Yes yes yes, make it super tall. Like eating leaves off the moon tall. With the greediest of ghandis on top. Upload. Enjoy the upvote glory that will be showered upon your face. Close your eyes, it burns. Now face the camera. Damn i really need to stop watching porn while replying on this thing...
@Greedy Ghandi, when i get home, finish drawing, get of the porn as well, maybe cook some burgers, I'll try to upload, now. Should ghandi, since he is greedy, be greedy for all the space hoes, since it's a pretty high horse? My only question really
@StiffWood, Space hoes? Gimme.
I guess Donald Trump was right. Immigrants are stealing stuff from hardworking Americans 🔥🔥🔥
@D0N RAM0N, Somebody already made that joke.
@D0N RAM0N, nice. #Shotsfired.
@D0N RAM0N, on a scale of 1 to 10. Trump for President is a Nein !!!!
@D0N RAM0N, haha
@D0N RAM0N, Is it even plagiarism when you have a couple sentences that are the same as another in your couple thousand sentence long speech?
Dey terk her speech!
She's getting up there in years, the Dongle Trumpster might be looking to switch her for a new model soon, pun intended.
Bring black my speech*
Black speeches matter.
Get lost you racist $&@)#%
People steal lines from speeches all the time hillary stole from bernie and no one batted an eye. I dont really think it matters at all if you say something someone else already said.
This has gotten all out of hand. I saw someone today say Trump plagiarized something from My Little Pony? People need to take a chill pill
I like how people conveniently forget that bitchell has never had an original thought of her own.
Make speech great again.
