Melania Trump: The Plagiarism 1st Lady


A booklet published by Melania Trumpโ€™s new campaign for childrenโ€™s online safety bears an uncanny resemblance to a document released under Barack Obamaโ€™s administration. In fact, other than the introduction, โ€œTalking with Kids about Being Online” touted as a booklet by First Lady Melania Trump and the Federal Trade Commission is exactly the same thing released by the Obama administration.ย  So they changed language on the website to,ย โ€œa Federal Trade Commission booklet, promoted by First Lady Melania Trumpโ€.ย ย Visitors who click on the link are taken to a booklet almost identical to one first published by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in 2014 under the title: Net Cetera โ€“ Chatting with Kids About Being Online.ย ย Their front covers are the same except for a minor tweak to images of mobile phones to make them look more like iPhones. The 2018 document, part of Melaniaโ€™s initiative unveiled in the White House rose garden on Monday, includes a preface accompanied by her photo and signature. โ€œThe lessons in this booklet can help kids act thoughtfully and kindly,โ€ she writes.

Maybe she will give that copy to her husband.
