Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has come out in defense of Melania Trump, wife of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who was accused of plagiarizing first lady Michelle Obama in her speech at the Republican National Convention.
Naturally, Jones saw a conspiracy behind Melania Trump’s botched speech.
“Melanie is a great speaker,” said Jones on his radio show. “There is no way she deliberately copied Michelle Obama’s speech. That teleprompter was hacked in a joint operation between the CIA, ISIS and Black Lives Matter (BLM.) All three organizations have some of the best hackers in the world.’
Jones also said Melania Trump was much smarter than Michelle Obama and there is no way she would have to steal her words. However, it was recently revealed that Melania Trump did not graduate from college, while Michelle Obama graduated from Princeton and Harvard Law School.
Republicans have been clutching at straws to defend Melania Trump all week.
Paul Manafort, chair of the Trump campaign, said the words Melania Trump used were common in the English language.
Republican National Convention Chief Strategist Sean Spicer told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer the words came from a children’s book.
“Melania Trump said, ‘the strength of your dreams and willingness to work for them.’ Twilight Sparkle from ‘My Little Pony’ said, ‘This is your dream. Anything you can do in your dreams, you can do now,’ ” said Spicer.
However later in the week Meredith McIver, a Trump campaign worker, admitted to borrowing from Michelle Obama’s speech.
“This was my mistake, and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as to Mrs. Obama,” said McIver in a statement posted online. “No harm was meant.”
