Yesterday Melania Trump was just your average Slovenian model married to a Republican presidential nominee, but this morning everything changed. I mean she’s still a Slovenian model married to a Republican presidential nominee but this morning she has her own hashtag. And you know what that means” an absolute Twitter demolition derby.
After it dawned on people last night that Melania Trump had plagiarized parts of her speech from Michelle Obama, the internet went nuts. The news is filled with everything from videos that place the two speeches side by side, to conspiracy theories claiming the plagiarized speech was an inside job. But I’ve been too busy LOLing on Twitter to care. The hashtag #MelaniaTrumpQuotes has been providing some golden comedy nuggets for hours, highlights of which include” a photo of Melania posing in her gaudy Louis-IV-esque New York penthouse with the quote “I have a dream”, and her face photoshopped into the Obama family photos.
Because I am a giver, I have taken time out of my busy schedule to give you the highlights of the #MelaniaTrumpQuotes. Don’t worry guys, I’m never going to give you up, never going to let you down (sorry I had to.)
1. The good old attributing-a-famous-quote-to-Meliana-Trump tweet.
Melania apology. “Indeed, I did have a relationship with Ms. Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact, it was wrong.” #MelaniaTrumpQuotes ” Mark Critch (@markcritch) July 19, 2016
2. Don’t get me started on the theory that Meliana Trump got “rickrolled”( the practice of inserting lyrics from the 1987 hit “Never Going to Give You Up” into unexpected places).

3. Seems plausible. Wouldn’t you cry for help if you referred to your husband as “The Donald”?
I think Melania Trump’s rickroll was really a cry for help. If you look closely, she could be blinking in morse code… ” Corinna Oak (@Corinna_Oak) July 19, 2016
