The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trump's Claim False Plagiarism

Last week Donald Trump and his Keystone Cops 2016 campaign thought scheduling his wife on stage to vouch for Trump's ability to lead the nation would be a good idea. It may have been worked as a good strategy had Mrs. Trump had an opportunity to work with a competent campaign team. 

There is much more to stage performances than  visuals via the camera Yes, there is much more to ascend a stage to speak, even if the visual is augmented via obvious external appearance augmentation. Of utmost importance is the content of the speech. Content when developed with even a minute of words from the speech of another person must be accompanied by attribution to the original speaker. In the case of Melania Trump, that did not take place. You know and the world knows Mrs. Trump didn't offer proper attribution as she used the words of Michelle Obama, FLOTUS, from a previous speech. 

Subsequent to the Trump passage lifting and plagiarism, the world now knows more about the Trump family.  Trump's wife also has lived life with a fabricated educational background. A background discovered via the curiosity of journalists after the plagiarism; a background which has now been scrubbed from her website. 

It doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to know what has transpired over the course of the Democratic Party Convention. Mr. "I hit back"  Trump has his fumbling campaign team seeking opportunist to falsely label speeches a plagiarize.  Do the Trump's have any respect for the minds and psyches of people who so willingly support the as if they worship a family of Pied Pipers?  The question is a rhetorical question, especially if you consider what follows.

First, we have a Trump offspring (standing with his father), making a claim that Obama lifted passages from Trump The Younger's speech. Yes, to state it civilly, it is a preposterous claim, but let's explore the Trump mind and its campaign.

Trump (The Younger)

The statement President Obama has used since early 2010 (and maybe prior to 2010). 

 "That's not the America I know."
I'm honored that POTUS would plagiarize a line from my speech last week. Where's the outrage? 
Well, to answer the misguided Trump, there will be no outrage because there was no lifting of passages. Moreover, there was no plagiarizing. 

AddicitingInfo published a piece regarding the feeble campaign strategy. 

Excerpt (AddicitngInfo)
Here's what the younger Trump said last week in Cleveland.
Donald Trump Jr: There's so much work to do. We will not accept the current state of our country because it's too hard to change. That's not the America I know. We're going to unleash the creative spirit and energy of all Americans. We're going to make our schools the best in the world for every single American of every single ethnicity and background.
And here's what the president said in Philadelphia.
President Barack Obama: What we heard in Cleveland last week wasn't particularly Republican and it sure wasn't conservative. What we heard was a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other and turn away from the rest of the world. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems, just the fanning of resentment and blame and anger and hate. And that is not the America I know. The America I know is full of courage, and optimism, and ingenuity. The America I know is decent and generous.
Obama has also frequently used the construction of "the America I know" and "not the America I know" in public addresses.
During an economic address in Cleveland, Ohio in 2010, for example, he said "Instead of setting our sights higher, they're asking us to settle for a status quo of stagnant growth and eroding competitiveness and a shrinking middle class. Cleveland, that is not the America I know. That is not the America we believe in."

Is there really a person on Earth who can assimilate to the mental giant, cognitive behemoth, and creative genius speechwriter, Obama, lifting from a speech delivered by this fool? Really?

Yes, the Trumps are surprisingly inept about the way they are managing their public aura.

After Hillary Clinton's speech of last night, the Trumps are at it again. This false charge of plagiarism is out of this world nutty.

Aol News
Sean Spicer, who works for the Republican National Committee, tweeted that Clinton lifted the phrase from political scientist Alexis de Tocqueville.
According to Aol News the charge is pure fallacy as it is not in de Tocqueville's book

Let's not spend any time on that ridiculous claim.

Again I ask, "Is there an original and creative bone in the wealthy New Yorker's campaign?"
