Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, has denied that Melania Trump plagiarized aspects of First Lady Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2008. Melania Trump also claims to have written many aspects of the speech herself, saying in an interview with the Today Show, “I read it once over, and that’s all because I wrote it with as little help as possible.”
But despite the denials and the attempts at damage control, the social media sphere went IN! See the speech mash-up below and all the super HILARIOUS reactions below:

BMWK, what do you think? Was this intentional plagiarism? Or if it was unintentional, does it matter?
