PENNSYLVANIA–(ENEWSPF)–November 3, 2016
Melania Trump is not someone used to public speaking and on top of that, English is not her first language. So she gets a little leeway. But her speech writers do not. Plagiarizing Michelle Obama was really bad. But today in in Pennsylvania might be worse!
Melania just plagiarized Trump's second wife Marla Maples. Here's the only Google results for "if you could dream it, you could become it": pic.twitter.com/ALeHuSZqEm

Yes, she is plagiarizing her predecessor, The Donald’s other ex, Marla Maples. And hilariously, it all comes from an interview conducted in May, 2011—two decades after Maples and Trump split.
It’s not just the one line, either. A whole section about family and parents and opportunity.
How humiliating. She didn’t only get Maples’ sloppy seconds of a husband, she’s getting her thoughts, too. If Trump can’t put together a campaign that avoids huge embarrassments like this—particularly after the RNC plagiarism fiasco—how could Trump possibly put together a team to run the country?
Think you might have heard that quote before? Yeah, it’s originally “’If you can imagine it, you can create it. If you can dream it, you can become it.” That’s William Arthur Ward. The only two people Google can find who misquote it this way are Maples and Melania. So the campaign can’t even do famous quotes right.
