Plagiarism or just Plain Ignorance?
Much ado was made about the first meeting between President Obama and Russian-elect, Donald Trump. But in the private quarters of the White House, the First Lady of the United States sat down with Melania Trump to go over a few things. No one really knows what the two women talked about, but here’s a good guess.

If you arrived in the United States and illegally made money, you’d be in a lot of trouble. But Melania Trump, the woman Republicans want to be the next First Lady of the United States, apparently worked illegally when she came to this country, and Republicans are clearly okay with that.
Melania Trump was paid for 10 modeling jobs in the United States worth $20,056 that occurred in the seven weeks before she had legal permission to work in the country, according to detailed accounting ledgers, contracts and related documents from 20 years ago provided to The Associated Press.
The details of Mrs. Trump’s early paid modeling work in the U.S. emerged in the final days of a bitter presidential campaign in which her husband, Donald Trump, has taken a hard line on immigration laws and those who violate them. Trump has proposed broader use of the government’s E-verify system allowing employers to check whether job applicants are authorized to work. He has noted that federal law prohibits illegally paying immigrants.
Mrs. Trump, who received a green card in March 2001 and became a U.S. citizen in 2006, has always maintained that she arrived in the country legally and never violated the terms of her immigration status. During the presidential campaign, she has cited her story to defend her husband’s hard line on immigration.
And just when you thought the Republicans couldn’t figure out how to take their presidential campaign to new lows, Donald Trump accuses Ted Cruz of buying the rights to Melania Trump’s nude GQ cover photo.
“From what I hear, he and his campaign went out and bought the cover shoot. Melania did a cover story for ‘GQ,’ a very strong modeling picture. No big deal,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“But it was a cover story for ‘GQ,’ a big magazine. And it was, you know, fine. And from what I hear, somebody bought the rights to it and he was the one or his campaign bought the rights and they gave it to the super PAC.”
Trump said Cruz knew about the ad, adding he started the latest fight between the two. Last week, Trump threatened to “spill the beans” on Cruz’s wife in response to the ad featuring Melania Trump. He then shared a tweet featuring a photo of his wife next to a photo of Cruz’s wife, stating, “A picture is worth a thousands words.”
Cruz has denied knowing anything about the ad, and called it deplorable on Sunday.
