So apparently in the Trump family plagiarism is not a bug, it's a feature. Update!

Courtesy of NBC News: 

For the second night in a row, a speech given by a member of Donald Trump's family is raising eyebrows for lines previously used elsewhere. 

Donald Trump Jr. in his headline address at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland delivered a near-exact repetition of a small part of an American Conservative article written by F.H. Buckley, titled "Trump vs. the New Class." 

"Our schools used to be an elevator to the middle class. Now they're stalled on the ground floor. They're like Soviet-Era Department stores that are run for the benefit of the clerks and not the customers," Trump's son said in his speech Tuesday night. 

The line in Buckley's article reads, "Our schools and universities are like the old Soviet department stores whose mission was to serve the interests of the sales clerks and not the customers."

Two convention speeches, two charges of plagiarism.

I can hardly wait to see who Eric Trump plagiarizes tonight.

My money is on either Bill Clinton or Spongebob Squarepants. Or, perhaps both.

Speaking of plagiarized speeches, after revealing that the first draft of Melania's speech did not contain the portions "borrowed" from Michelle Obama, they have now decided that those were the fault of former ballet dancer and English Major Meredith McIver.

Personally I'm a little surprised, I always thought that former ballet dancers were the shit when it came to speech writing.

Update: Courtesy of Vox:  

"I was a principal speechwriter for the speech," Buckley told Vox. "So it's not an issue." 

So here's the difference, and it's big: Melania Trump's convention speech copied whole paragraphs from Michelle Obama's convention speech. That's not okay. Don Trump Jr.'s speech was written by a speechwriter who used some of his past material in the speech. You can argue whether that's the height of speechwriting, but there's nothing unethical about it — it would be a very weird standard to argue that writers couldn't take a line they were proud of writing in a small-circulation policy magazine and let a political figure they like use it in a major national speech.

Okay so here's the question that we have to ask ourselves.

DID F.H. Buckley help to write the speech, after all he was not given credit at the outset, or is this the Trump way of providing cover for yet another example of plagiarism.

I do not know the answer to that question for certain, but let's just say that I remain skeptical that things are ever the way that Donald Trump or his handlers say that they are.

Update 2: Donald Trump has now decided to see all of this controversy as a good thing.
Well, I guess if you are a serial liar what else can you do but obfuscate?

      Phrases, paragraphs etc. taken from someone else, even with their permission, are acknowledged by, "So and so said and I quote" or if written the author's words are acknowledged by an acceptable means and credit is given to that author.

    3. Yes, you can steal from yourself. It depends on whether he retained the copyright to the words he wrote for the American Conservative article.

      If AC acquired the rights to the article on publication, then without their permission, Buckley did not have the right to re-use the material.

      Exactly, try using a phrase on a paper you have previously turned in, and you will be dinged for plagiarism - so says the MLA.

    5. Anonymous2:55 PM

      Yes. You can.

      Even if you recycle previous material, Universities consider it recycling your own work to be plagiarism. You must first get the professor's permission and in some cases the university's permission if you are going to reuse previously written material.

      Melania plagiarized. Or her speechwriter did. (I still maintain it was Trump himself that inserted the material, then instructed Melania to tell everyone she wrote it all herself with no help.)

      Trump Jr. also plagiarized.

      Neither speech cited the previous material.

      This is why Trump loves the uneducated. They don't know and they don't care.

      After the Melania debacle you'd think they'd be really careful. But no. So they're caught again.

      You better believe that every journalist covering this is putting their speeches through plagiarism software and finding every time they've stolen material.

      And yes, even if a speech writer steals from himself, using previously written material and recycling it is still plagiarism. Ask any university professor.

  10. Anonymous6:44 AM

    Melania Trump's blatant use of Michelle Obama's 2008 speech was plagiarism. But I'm not sure why you're recycling misinformation about Trump Jr.'s speech last night. The writer of the article, F.H. Buckley, also helped to write the speech. Not the same thing.

    Seems a little too much like a C4P or Breitbart approach to reporting the truth. You can do better.

    1. Did you read and understand? The author was not given credit for the speech,but after it was noticed that sections were lifted from his article,he suddenly claims to be the author. Is it possible that this is an elaborate con job to cover up Dishonest Don Jrs plagiarism?Could the author have been roped into this after the fact to say he was a speech writer?

    2. Anonymous7:42 AM

      No, you are wrong, if the lines or more material are "lifted" from previously published material then the speaker, or writer, acknowledges that So and so said, and I quote. It is not ok even if the speech writer is the one inserting the lines that have appeared in print elsewhere prior.

      In this case Buckley was paid as a columnist for the previously published article so it may well be that the owner of that news, not Buckley, can demand money for use of what they previously paid Buckley for the submission.

    3. Anonymous1:47 PM

      Yes, the same thing, Buckley had published it elsewhere - it was no longer his to use.

    4. Anonymous4:06 PM

      Yep, years to get that MLA set right. And then the don and his useless family ruin it. It is plsgerism. Other, I like how melania likes Mrs. OBAMA.

    5. Anonymous2:59 PM

      Um, yes it is.

      If a speech writer uses previous material he wrote and recycles it, he would need to cite himself as the source of the previous material.

      So, yes, it's plagiarism. And after the Melania gaffe you'd think they'd be more careful.

      The bottom line is they are lazy, liars and thieves and they just don't give a damn.

The closest they got was Junior where I believe he uttered the word 'jobs' once. Instead, what we got was a non-stop Hillary bashing extravaganza. Cable news pundits have remarked on how poorly this whole thing has been staged. The RNC has not capitalized on utilizing prime time for their nightly keynotes. The first night, the last two speakers had nearly an empty auditorium when they spoke and yet it was prime time on the west coast.

      He may well have done and Jr may have dropped the citation. The hubris in this family doesn't allow them to credit anyone. That's why Melania was instructed to tell anyone that asked that she wrote the speech herself with very little help. And why they doubled down on denying the plagiarism.

      The entire family are lazy, cheaters, liars and thieves. The Republicans voted them to represent the "values" of the party.

      And there you have it.

  26. Even if Bucklery wrote the article and as speechwriter for L'il Donny chose to recycle part of his article, he could possibly be guilty of copyright violation.

    This could happen if American Conservative owns the copyright on articles that it publishes.

      I maintain Melania didn't do it, Trump did.

      Melania lied. She had almost nothing to do with writing the speech, only practicing and performing it. (Which she did badly.)

      The speechwriter didn't do it either as even a high school student would know better than to steal from such a famous and recent speech as one the First Lady gave in 2008.

      No, I think this was all Trump. Does anyone really think he would allow Melania to give a speech he didn't read and sign off on? Given his own lack of morals, ethics and values, does anyone believe he wouldn't think twice about changing a word or two (still plagiarism) and putting entire chunks of Michelle's speech in Melania's speech?

      The guy still doesn't understand what plagiarism is or why it is wrong. He certainly will continue to deny it. Because to him, the speech was a success because everyone is talking about it. That's his attitude. Good or bad, it is the publicity that counts. He doesn't think it was wrong, didn't think he stole anything, and would never apologize because he doesn't think there was anything wrong about it all.

      That's Trump. The liar, cheat, con man, thief. It's the Art of the Deal all over again. Read the article. The ghostwriter has Don the Con nailed to a tee, and this current plagiarism situation is consistent with that Trump.

    In 2003, when Melania was younger and presumably even hotter, Trump admitted to radio host Howard Stern that although he had known Paris Hilton since she was 12, it didn’t stop him and then-girlfriend Melania from ogling her sex tape. Trump told Stern, “Now, somebody who a lot of people don’t give credit to but is in actuality very beautiful is Paris Hilton. I’ve known Paris Hilton from the time she’s 12, her parents are friends of mine, and the first time I saw her she walked into the room and I said, ‘Who the hell is that?’ At 12, I wasn’t interested… but she was beautiful.” The Daily Beast reported that Trump “also admitted to watching Paris Hilton’s sex tape with Knauss, despite knowing her since the age of 12 and being very close friends with the Hilton Family.”

    In the same interview, Trump boasted of his 21-year-old daughter Ivanka, “You know who’s one of the great beauties of the world—according to everybody—and I helped create her? Ivanka. My daughter, Ivanka. She’s 6 feet tall, she’s got the best body."

      When Kasich’s adviser asked how this would be the case, Donald Jr. explained that his father’s vice president would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy.

      Then what, the adviser asked, would Trump be in charge of?

      “Making America great again” was the casual reply."

    BIG FUCKING LIE "Born on April 26, 1970 in Slovenia, Melania Knauss began her modeling career at the age of sixteen. At the age of eighteen, she signed with a modeling agency in Milan. After obtaining a degree in design and architecture at University in Slovenia, Melania was jetting between photo shoots in Paris and Milan, finally settling in New York in 1996."

    " She completed her first year at a Slovenian university before moving to Milan.[7] Knauss studied design at the High School of Design in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, and architecture at the University of Ljubljana. Although her web site and the Republican Party convention program say that she obtained a degree, other sources say that she did not."

      She also worked for Kyrocera and Xerox. Graduated with honors and a degree in "copy and paste".

    What people said in these comments has me overthinking. Like Trump commenting on how beautiful Ivanka and Paris Hilton are. And How he is like the Palins, any brash thing come out of his mouth and it gets him more attention, and how Melania and Jr. are not apologizing or ashamed that they just reread other's speeches. If Trump gets elected we know we have more of that to come. And he sounds like one of those pure race type. Most of his followers are old fat people but the rest are nice looking enough healthy looking enough white people. I am wondering how long into a Trump presidency until this mind shift of calling every out of shape person, every disabled person, every not too good looking person, and every not white person out. Not long I suspect. In order for any of that to happen everyone knows their history by now, that would take a huge undertaking of cattle trains, ovens, and graves. Oh, and let's not forget that one excuse that is used to blame people for the downfall of the whites. The economic downfall. Donald is always one step from bankruptcy. Hitler was pretty poor and downtrodden back then too. Then he used his hate to elevate him. Hate is a powerful motivator. The Republican's know that fact and that's why they are hating on Hilary. She's the reason for everything on this earth in their minds. They know if they incite and incite, that the voter will remember when it comes time. That trust issue is already planted in voter's brains. Is she trustworthy? I am voting Hilary. I will exercise my freedom to think on my own, and make my own decision. No news agency, no Donald, Chris Christie, or military mom will sway my mind. Thank you. It's good to be able to say that and hope that we are able to keep this right as humans. If Donald gets in his followers say very condescendingly, that America will be ok. I doubt that with all my gut intuition.

      Did he really say that? Yup it's there in his own words.

    What is so sadly ironic is that Donald Trump Jr's nonsensical plagiarized words attempt to skewer public school teachers and higher education.

    Yet the RNC pamplet and Melania's internet bio lie and state she has a university degree in architecture and design, when in fact she flunked out her freshman year.

    Why the heck would they lie to showcase a university education and then trivialize teachers and higher education at the same time?

    Oh wait I know why - it's all just a clown circus sh@t show with conflicting messages in order to dupe the idiots who will vote against themselves.

    Goebells is cheering from Hell.

    Picture shows Donald Trump creep on his own daughter

    There is a fuller picture of daddy and his young daughter within the video. Where's her mother during this?

    The beginning of the daddy daughter video so that Trump's voters can't argue it is not the complete video

    And you would be WRONG, Gryphen. At university, if you have ever turned in an assignment, with the same seven words or the idea, you cannot use it again - unless you cite it.

    Buckley, if he had written for that magazine, gave/sold them the rights to it - therefore, he stole form them aka plagiarized.

    1. Anonymous3:49 PM

      Actually, Buckley would still own the copyright on his own words.

      However, he would have to CITE HIMSELF and the article if he reused/recycled himself.

      So, yes, Jr. committed plagiarism and Buckley should have known better.

      I have an MLIS. I know copyright.

    Rub it in dim bulb Don. You hung your wife up wet for seventy two hours before coming up with an excuse. Something tells me she's the laughing stock of the ladies who lunch, and the world sees what a weak little man you are. If Melania figures it out, you'll be sleeping with rosey palm for a long time. Yeah, any attention is good attention, but the buck stops at family. You're a coward.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
