Melania Trump didn’t ‘steal’ MLK tweet from Michelle Obama. That’s fake news.

Melania Trump didn’t ‘steal’ MLK tweet from Michelle Obama. That’s fake news.
Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs / CCL
From the day Melania Trump became first lady, she’s been criticized by the left for her dialect, her wardrobe, and evidently, for allegedly plagiarizing previous first ladies.

But just like the previous allegations against her, the latest has been found to be a bold-faced lie.

Mrs. Trump tweeted a message on Jan. 15 honoring the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that read:

Melania Trump
Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. & his service to this great country.  I am honored to be First Lady of a nation that continually strives for equality & justice for all. #MLKDay

But when a viral image accused the first lady of copying a similar post in 2016 by Michelle Obama, it was none other than the left-leaning fact-check site Snopes that set the record straight.

The claim
The first lady allegedly stole her “MLK Day” message from her immediate predecessor — Michelle Obama, who purportedly tweeted a strikingly similar message on Jan. 18, 2016, that seemed to merely switch the words “country” and “nation.” Obama’s alleged tweet read:

On this day we honor Dr, Martin Luther King Jr. and his service to this great nation. I am honored to be First Lady of a country that continually strives for equality and justice for all. #MLKDay

But Snopes reporters observed that the alleged Obama message “appears to be a fabrication.” The fact-checking site reported:

We searched both Michelle Obama’s personal account and the archived @Flotus44 account for these remarks and could not find them on the specified date or any other time. We also examined news articles from 2016 and could not find any record of Michelle Obama’s uttering these words.

This message is also missing from official releases from the White House pertaining to that year’s Martin Luther King Day.

Snopes reporters added that this wasn’t the first time Trump was wrongfully accused of plagiarism.

According to the site:

Fake news stories have been published alleging that Melania Trump stole a remark from Hillary Clinton to defend her husband after the Access Hollywood tape was made public, that she had plagiarized Michelle Obama for a speech at the United Nations, and that she again lifted a phrase from the former First Lady in her remarks about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Other ridiculous claims
The first lady’s accusers have come after her for things other than lifting words from other speeches and messages, however. Comedian Chelsea Handler came under fire in January 2017 for saying that Trump, who is fluent in five languages, “can barely speak English.”

Additionally, in August 2017, Vogue magazine contributing editor and self-described fashion expert Lynn Yaeger blasted the first lady’s choice of footwear when she headed off with the president to inspect the damage left by Hurricane Harvey.

Mrs. Trump, who was wearing stiletto high heels when she boarded the plane, changed into sneakers before landing in Houston, Texas.

The accusations of plagiarism leveled at Melania Trump for her MLK Day Twitter message was yet another example of fake news.
Apparently, if liberal reporters can’t find anything legitimate to pin on the Trumps, they just make it up.

NEWSTrump-Haters Gleefully Share Photo of Obama Helping Hurricane Victims in Texas, Until They Realize …

When it comes to the gullibility of the average social media user, it’s not surprising to see fake news spread like the wind.

A recent example of this was a photo of former President Barack Obama allegedly serving food in Texas, which continues to feel the catastrophic effects of Hurricane Harvey.

The caption stated, “Something you’ll never see trump do: Obama is in Texas serving meals!”

"This Obama photo, doing the rounds after Harvey, is actually from 2015"http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/28/us/obama-houston-photo-debunk-trnd/index.html …#HurricaneHarvey

The problem is, the photo is from 2015 of the then-first family serving Thanksgiving dinner at a homeless shelter.

An account under the name Aiden Benjamin — described as a “parody account for laughs” under the profile — tweeted the photo, before later deleting it and offering an apology.

With Americans seemingly bored out of their minds, spreading false information is as easy as a PhotoShop app and a social media account.

An example of this is another Harvey-related photo making the rounds that features a SHARK superimposed on a flooded Texas freeway — it has been shared almost 59,000 times.
