Joy Reid Asks the Crucial Question Every Sane Person Knows the Answer to About Melania Trump’s Plagiarism Scandal

In the immediate aftermath of Melania Trump‘s Republican National Convention speech, MSNBC‘s Joy Reid makes the case that First Lady Michelle Obama would have not been protected if this plagiarism scandal happened to her.

In the clip, Reid says that Obama would be crucified for such an accusation and would have not been given a pass at all.

“I think we’re all very quickly passing the responsibility onto staff,” Reid says. “Clearly, this is a campaign that is poorly staffed. I think that has been clear for a long time. But they sent Melania Trump over to Matt Lauer to say that she wrote it [the speech] … I doubt that we would dismiss the idea that Michelle Obama had anything to do with it.”

The MSNBC anchor says that blaming a staff member for the SNAFU is a mistake because Melania is old enough to understand the importance of her speech.

“She’s an adult woman,” Reid explains.” She’s grown up. She has participated in the delivery of this speech. She gave the speech. So I think you have to give responsibility — sure, to the staff, the campaign management has been poor here — but Melania Trump did give the speech and Michelle Obama wouldn’t have gotten a pass.”

  1. Kind of like dismissing the fact that Clinton lied to the FBI and the American people???

  2. Kind of like HIllary "getting a pass" for lying to the FBI and the American people??

  3. Emails? Get over yourself

  4. Sarah Burk says:

    Hillary Clinton exposed America's secrets, then lied about it to all Americans and got away scot-free. Based on this bit of history of Obama's friends, let alone family, I think we all know a Michelle gaffe would have received VERY little publicity.

  5. You think hilary got away with it. It may cause her the election. Secondly she's not the only one, She just happen to be exposed publicly.

  6. No a Michelle Obama gaffe would have received great publicity. Conservatives/racists would have pounced all over it.
