RNC 2016: Was Part of Melania Trump’s Speech Plagiarized?

Melania Trump, the wife of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, took to the RNC stage Monday night to deliver remarks about herself and her husband.

But as her speech concluded, some people noticed something interesting. It appears that she lifted a portion of her speech from Michelle Obama’s DNC speech in 2008.

Here’s Mrs. Obama’s speech:

Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: 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, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them. And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation.

And here is Mrs. Trump’s:

From a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that 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. They taught and showed me values and morals in their daily life. That is a lesson that I continue to pass along to our son, and we need to pass those lessons on to the many generation to follow.

One of the first people to make this observation was Jarrett Hill:

Oh snap!
