Donald Trump Jr. HILARIOUSLY Accuses Obama Of Stealing His Speech (VIDEO)

Oh, my gosh. You can’t find a story more ludicrous than this one.

ThinkProgress is reporting that Donald Trump, Jr. has taken a page directly out of Daddy’s playbook.

After the mess that was made at the Republican National Convention, a lot of Trump’s minions are trying to cast the Democrats in a dim light.

Yeah. Good luck with that.

In this case, Donald, Jr. is reacting to the well-known scandal in which Melania Trump, his Dad’s latest beautiful wife, was strongly criticized for plagiarizing the speech of Michelle Obama.

In a moment of extreme reality testing, little Donald tried to claim that President Obama had plagiarized his speech at the RNC.

Oh, dear, Baby Donald, you are delusional!

Young Donnie claimed that the President of the United States plagiarized his speech because he used one sentence that was somewhat similar to a line that Obama used at the DNC.

What was the borrowed line?

“That’s not the America I know.”

Young Donnie said this:

“There’s so much work to do. We will not accept the current state of our country because it’s too hard to change. That’s not the America I know. We’re going to unleash the creative spirit and energy of all Americans.”

Huh. That does sound familiar, doesn’t it? President Obama said something similar, a few days after Little Donnie gave his speech. He said:

“What we heard in Cleveland last week wasn’t particularly Republican and it sure wasn’t conservative. What we heard was a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other and turn away from the rest of the world. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems, just the fanning of resentment and blame and anger and hate. And that is not the America I know. The America I know is full of courage, and optimism, and ingenuity. The America I know is decent and generous.”

So, sure, the two comments sound very similar. But here’s the thing: this is a phrase that the President has used for years. For example, in 2010, the President said this:

“Instead of setting our sights higher, [Republicans are] asking us to settle for a status quo of stagnant growth and eroding competitiveness and a shrinking middle class… Cleveland, that is not the America I know. That is not the America we believe in.”

So. The baby Donald says that the President plagiarized him. But the reality is that if that’s true, then Donnie plagiarized the President first.

Puh. Leeze.

Melania Trump took entire chunks out of the speech of Michelle Obama in 2008. That’s not the same as using the same phrase in an entirely different context.

Nice try, Baby Donnie.
