As a retired teacher of English/Language Arts, there have unfortunately been many instances of plagiarism by students that had to be addressed in which consequences had to be given. Now the prospective First Lady, Melania Trump, has been caught bare handed in the same nasty situation during the first night of the Republican National Convention.
“… you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise. That you treat people with respect.”
– Melania Trump 2016
“that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect. ”
– Michelle Obama 2008
Since no coherent Republican platform has been established which addresses educational issues, it seems bizarre to have plagiarism, which is an ongoing education problem, become the first example of what to expect from the Trump campaign. The First Lady of Plagiarism.
Oddly, even during a night of oddities, Melania’s recital was the least offensive discourse of a hate filled night. A recitation of platitudes from an eye-candy professional model. Blah, blah, blah, yak, yak, blather – with brief intervals of applause.
The Theater of the Absurd, called the Republican National Convention, began on this note. There was an element of Mel Brooks’ “The Producers” in the theater on Monday night.
Well, why would Melania Trump do this?
As many politicians have repeatedly explained to us, immigrant workers are necessary because Americans are unwilling to perform certain jobs.
Plagiarism? Is that the best she and her professional writers can do?
I would have given her an F if she had been in any of my classes.
