While the Trump campaign refuses Melania Trump’s blatant plagiarism of First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech, the actual writer of the speech (Melania, did not write it..no surprise there) is admitting to her mistake.
Meredith McIver, an in-house staff writer for the Trump campaign, issued a statement admitting her ‘mistake’ and says that ‘no harm was meant.’
Meredith was honest about Melania’s natural love for Michelle Obama and she read her passages of the First Lady’s speech over the phone.
Here is the kicker though! When Meredith realized how much energy was being spent on the plagiarism narrative she gave Donald the offer of resigning but Donald refused.
Do not for one-second think Trump was being kind to his employee because he is way too narcissistic for that. He told her he did not want her to resign because everybody “make(s) innocent mistakes” , but what he really meant was — If you do that it would look even worse for my campaign so you should take the fall.
If this isn’t some Olivia Pope type sh*t I don’t know what is. Read her full statement below:
In my opinion, this would not have happened if Melania had just told the truth in the first place, but we all know why they couldn’t do that!
