• Melania Trump has been accused of plagiarizing Michelle Obama at least twice
  • Melania Trump's Be Best campaign seems to be inspired by Michelle Obama's "be better" response to Oprah Winfrey
  • Melania Trump was lambasted on Twitter amid plagiarism claims

Melania Trump has been accused of plagiarism a handful of times.

Years ago, she was lambasted for seemingly copying Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech. She was also bashed for copying the ex-FLOTUS’s “Be Better” campaign.

During her 2016 appearance on “Oprah,” host Oprah Winfrey asked Barack Obama’s wife what men can do to help end sexism at the workplace. Michelle simply said, “Be better.”

Months later, Melania launched her Be Best campaign during a Rose Garden speech.

At that time, President Donald Trump’s wife said that Be Best will focus on three main issues such as the opioid crisis, social media use, and promoting well-being.

Following her speech, the FLOTUS was mocked on Twitter for copying Michelle once again.

“Michelle Obama said ‘Be Better’ in a talk with Oprah in 2016. Ever the plagiarist, Melania announced her #BeBest initiative in a sad attempt to outdo Mrs. Obama. Seems the only original thought Melania is going to have is divorce,” Twitter user @ReignOfApril said.

“#BeBest… at plagiarism,” Twitter user @tristamac said.

“Even with divorce, two other women got there first,” Twitter user @graymattersrep said.

“Well… at least Melania has enough sense to plagiarize the best and brightest,” Twitter user @AGirlHasNoPOTUS said.

“Oh my God, Melania Trump is pathetic,” Twitter user @Madsp4 said.

“Melania originally suggested ‘be bester.’ Luckily Donny corrected her,” Twitter user @NancevanDijke said.

“It’s been two years and all Melania Trump seems capable of doing is making promises to fight cyberbullying and plagiarizing @MichelleObama. Somehow, that’s earning plaudits today from a lot of people who I thought were smart,” Twitter user @JamilSmith said.

Meanwhile, the FLOTUS was once again accused of plagiarizing last month after the White House seemingly claimed that Christmas wreaths are Melania’s idea.

The first lady's previous plagiarism scandal was linked to the recent event. And some netizens recalled how similar Melania’s speech was with that of Michelle.

However, President Trump’s communications adviser, Jason Miller, denied the allegations. He said that Melania’s team of writers were the ones who wrote her speech.

Despite the backlash, the POTUS showed his support for his wife by saying that Melania’s speech and demeanor were absolutely incredible.
