And here we are. The final chapter in the Melania Trump plagiarism story. Meredith McIver, who has written some of Donald’s books and helped Melania write her speech, has taken the fall.
They could have fessed up to this early Tuesday morning and avoided all the angst. Why didn’t they? Who knows. More to the point: it seems as if all of Trumpland spent the entire day yesterday insisting that the disputed parts of Melania’s speech were just common phrases and nobody plagiarized anything. Steven Dennis summarizes:
Melania plagiarism defenses:
* Twilight Sparkle
* Michelle Obama doesn’t own words
* John Legend
* Didn’t happen

So are all these folks going to apologize for obviously trying to deceive everyone they talked to? I think we know the answer to that.
