The Donald Trump campaign is still apparently sore about being caught plagiarizing last week. And now they have a great retort - better even than that "My Little Pony" defense:
They might have plagiarized an Obama speech last week, you see, but now an Obama is plagiarizing them!
President Barack Obama said at one point in his speech on Wednesday night, "That is not the America I know." And Donald Trump Jr. used that exact same line just a week prior - albeit with a contraction: "We will not accept the current state of our country because it's too hard to change. That's not the America I know."
Case closed. It's plagiarism. The media's double standard at work, yet again.
Except that, by this standard, Obama didn't plagiarize the line from Trump Jr. until Trump Jr. had already plagiarized it from him. Obama, after all, has said this phrase on several occasions. And that wasn't even its first bout of plagiarizing; none other than George W. Bush used it before Obama.
