The Most Famous Speechwriter, Ever

CLEVELAND — Today, the anchors on CNN were doing a happy dance because the woman who wrote Melania Trump’s Monday RNC speech has owned up to copying three lines from Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democrat 2008 convention.

Meredith McIver, who works for Donald Trump’s business empire, issued a statement explaining how the plagiarism accidentally happened:

In working with Melania on her recent first lady speech, we discussed many people who inspired her and messages she wanted to share with the American people. A person she has always liked is Michelle Obama. Over the phone, [Mrs. Trump] read me some passages from Mrs. Obama’s speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama’s speeches. This was my mistake and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant.

An innocent error, it seems, but one on which CNN spent hours of coverage during the past two days. “The media is spending more time doing a forensic analysis of Melania’s speech than the FBI spent on Hillary’s emails,” as Donald Trump said on Twitter this morning.
