Melania Trump: The Plagiarism 1st Lady


A booklet published by Melania Trump’s new campaign for children’s online safety bears an uncanny resemblance to a document released under Barack Obama’s administration. In fact, other than the introduction, “Talking 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.  So they changed language on the website to, “a Federal Trade Commission booklet, promoted by First Lady Melania Trump”.  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 – Chatting with Kids About Being Online.  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 Melania’s initiative unveiled in the White House rose garden on Monday, includes a preface accompanied by her photo and signature. “The lessons in this booklet can help kids act thoughtfully and kindly,” she writes.

Maybe she will give that copy to her husband.
