"Melania Trump said, "The strength of your dreams and willingness to work for them, '" Spicer said".
The Trump campaign has been accused of lifting passages from Michelle Obama when crafting Melania Trump's highly anticipated address to the RNC, which prompted one GOP spokesman to compare both speeches to quotes from "My Little Pony". We're talking about 70 words, three passages. Republican National Committee Communications Director Sean Spicer cited Twilight Sparkle of the "My Little Pony" franchise Tuesday in defense of Melania Trump's now-infamous Monday night speech.
Twilight Sparkle and her My Little Pony pals got dragged into the latest political controversy.
"I mean if we want to take a bunch of phrases and run them through Google and say, 'hey, who else has said them?' I can come up with a list in five minutes, and that's what this is", he added.
Along with borrowing a line from "My Little Pony", Spicer said another line from her controversial speech was also similar to a well-known singer, Slate reported.
Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was also quick to defend the billionaire's wife Tuesday morning.
In a live interview with CNN, Spicer compared lines of the possible First Lady's speech to quotes from famous celebrities, showing how often these "common words" are used.
The Trump campaign announced it doesn't plan to fire anybody over the allegations. "To think that she'd be cribbing Michelle Obama's words is insane".
