Melania's speech was articulate, but with significant passages copied word-for-word from Michelle Obama's 2008 speech. I am less bothered by her speech than by how Trump's campaign handled the incident. First, the speech was not vetted properly, displaying a serious lack of attention from the "best people" Trump swore to surround himself with. Then when the truth came out, they denied there was any plagiarism. And when they could no longer deny it, they blamed Hillary Clinton for pointing it out and trying to embarrass them, when in fact, the story broke on Twitter. So the campaign went from denial to false accusation over a relatively unimportant footnote to the campaign before finally owning up to its blunder.
