36. Quite possible deliberate set up- hoping attacks on Melania would backfire on Dems

Wouldn't surprise me if her speech was a trap by Trump camp. No other explanation makes sense to me with such obvious plagiarism and a rick roll, all those contradictory explanations and the glib reactions by Trump and Donald Jr. who didn't seem the least bit perturbed, but just full of praise of Melania and of course not firing anyone.

I can envisage Trump (with dirty tricks expert Manafort) concocting the scheme hoping that Hillary and Dems would appear mean spirited harshly criticizing Melania. Trump tweeted that it was "Good News" that her speech got more publicity than any speech in the history of politics . His other tweet said it was scrutinized more than Hillary's emails. On ABC News tonight he seemed quite pleased with all the attention towards Melania.

Today's final reveal of how it went down (Melania admiringly quoting Michelle's speech verbatim over the phone) is suspicious while painting Melania in a favorable light above reproach.

Hillary and the Obamas have wisely not commented and Donna Brazile who appeared on ABC's GMA on Tuesday pleasantly made light of the speech voicing pleasure that Melania agreed with Michelle's values and hoping Trump would do likewise in emulating Pres. Obama.

Another possible clue that it was a deliberate mind game is the way Trump's campaign manager Manafort immediately made unfounded bizarre accusations against Hillary in his first comments about the plagiarized speech. Trying to pit sweet innocent Melania against mean Hillary in voters' minds.
