I posted this on Facebook:
OK watch this: SUPPOSE for one second that the Trump campaign–which defied all the odds and managed to knock out the Bush dynasty plus some other candidates that were ostensibly qualified politicians–isn’t completely stupid. SUPPOSE for one second that they wouldn’t let a plagiarized speech by the candidate’s wife slip through. (After all, critics think the “Star of David” was intentional and not a slip up.) So now you’ve got all the media broadcasting Melania’s speech, side by side with Michelle Obama. So free publicity, and subconscious message that “Trump campaign respects the thoughts of a black woman when they uphold American values.” Discuss.
Then Dan Doherty added in a comment: “Not to mention that it already has you subconsciously associating Melania with the first lady in your head.”
When Scott Adams links to this post, I’ll be happy if he praises me, but it’s OK if he just says, “Exactly. I’ve been predicting this for a while now.”
