I actually think that speech would have gone over better than the one that Melania actually gave.
In other news the Trumps have thrown some woman named Meredith McIver under the bus as the bitch who wrote those plagiarized portions of Melania's speech.
Everipedia page, which totally does not look like it was thrown together in a hurry.
(Some are even wondering if a Meredith McIver actually exists.)
Interestingly enough if this is all true it may cause a completely different problem.
Courtesy of the Washington Post:
But there's another problem. Notice the letterhead of the statement: The Trump Organization, which is to say Donald Trump's personal business. And notice how McIver describes herself: As an employee of the Trump Organization, not the campaign.
If Trump used corporate resources to write a political speech, that could be illegal.
"On the face of it, this looks like a corporate violation," explained Lawrence Noble, general counsel for the Campaign Legal Center. And that is "a violation of federal law. It can result in civil penalties to the corporation and the campaign." If the campaign used corporate resources "willingly and knowingly," the offense is a criminal one.
