#BREAKING Trump Speech Writer Meredith McIver RESIGNS over Melania Trump Speechgate #HNNpolitics

Media preview

It's been trending since the whole RNC started. Melania Trump's convention speech strikingly similar to Michelle Obama's speech in 2008. Now folks on my Facebook thread mostly Americans are even saying that Michelle's speech came from Jackie O's speech in the 60's . That will be Mrs Kennedy. So what's all this FLOTUS speechgate about? Now comes word that the speech writer Meredith McIver has actually resigned releasing a statement below. Some conservatives like radio host Glen Beck think Melania may have been sabotaged.:

The statement reads: 

"Over the phone, she read me some passages from Mrs. Obama's speech as examples. I wrote them down and later included some of the phrasing in the draft that ultimately became the final speech. I did not check Mrs. Obama's speeches. That was my mistake, and I feel terrible for the chaos I have caused Melania and the Trumps, as well as to Mrs. Obama. No harm was meant.

"Yesterday, I offered my resignation to Mr. Trump and the Trump family, but they rejected it. Mr. Trump told me that people make innocent mistakes and that we learn and grow from these experiences.

"I asked to put out this statement because I did not like seeing the way this was distracting from Mr. Trump’s historic campaign for president and Melania’s beautiful message and presentation.

I apologize for the confusion and hysteria my mistake has caused. Today, more than ever, I am honored to work for such a great family. I personally admire the way Mr. Trump has handled this situation and I am grateful for his understanding."

I guess that situation has solved itself. The main thing is the message.
