Arushi Patel. Five Plagiarism Cases You Might Not Know About. Odyssey Website. https://www.theodysseyonline.com/5-famous-plagiarism-cases

I chose this piece because it talks about Melania Trump and a speech she gave that was almost the exact same speech that Michelle Obama had given a couple years before. Trump tried saying that Melania had written the speech herself and that she wanted to do it with as little help from the official presidential authors as possible. However, in the end it seemed as though she had just found Michelle’s speech, changed some of the words, and tried to pass it off as her own. People already try to find as many negative things to say about the Trumps as possible and this was just the icing on the cake.
