At Least Donald Trump, Jr. 'Recycled' A Conservative's Words

Donald Trump, Jr.'s speech was not particularly rousing, until it was run through the anti-plagiarism machine.

This isn't an accident anymore. I have the sense that the Trump family spent today clearing the speeches of any language that came from Democrats, but plagiarism is not a problem for them. Not a problem at all.

When I was watching the speech, I remarked that these lines (one of the more memorable) sounded like they came from Paul Ryan, but no. It's F.H. Buckley.

It's true, you know. The Trumps take other people's work and slap their brand on it. Whether it's wine, or steaks, or speeches.


Apparently it was just "recycled."
