In Trumpworld words such as integrity, honesty, and truth have no meaning; there is no such thing as shame.  Much of what Donald Trump touches is corrupted such as his phony schools, contractual obligations, failed enterprises such as Trump Airlines, Trump Vodka, The Bankruptcies, and Trump Casinos.

Now his wife Melania is caught up in a scandal that involves plagiarizing in her speech to the GOP convention last night.
To any fair-minded, objective observer important passages of her presentation were lifted directly from Michele Obama’s speech to the Democratic convention s 2008.

Michelle Obama, 2008
Melania Trump, 2016
Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you’re going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them, and even if you don’t agree with them. And Barack and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generation.
From a young age, my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life: that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise; that you treat people with respect. They taught and showed me values and morals in their daily life. That is a lesson that I continue to pass along to our son, and we need to pass those lessons on to the many generation to follow.

The question in my mind, in view of the fact that Melania claims to have written her speech, is she to be viewed as a victim of Trumpworld or a willing participant who is allowing herself to be corrupted by her husband and his campaign.  The campaign itself is denying plagiarism and blames the dustup in the media on Hillary Clinton!  Melania, herself, has tweeted that the controversy is hurting her children! 
I think I must conclude that Melania, like much of what Donald Trump touches has been corrupted and is a dishonest fraud.  If Michele Obama had plagiarized Nancy Reagan in a similar fashion the GOP would have called on Barak to resign from the campaign in 2008.
