RNC Hack Invokes Twilight Sparkle From 'My Little Pony' To Dismiss Plagiarism Charges

Sean Spicer, the Communications Director for the RNC, needs a few lessons in communicating after witnessing this pathetic affair.
Views:

The RNC is now so beholden to Trump that they'll resort to this type of foolishness to defend the indefensible. Luckily for Sean Spicer, he'll always have a willing dupe in Wolf Blitzer, and others just like him in the media, to play along.

A Republican National Committee spokesman used a popular children's toy franchise on Tuesday to defend Donald Trump's speechwriters against allegations that they plagiarized portions of Melania Trump's speech at the GOP convention.

"When it comes to the speech, let's actually put this in perspective," RNC communications director Sean Spicer told CNN Tuesday afternoon. "In a 2,000-word statement, we're talking about 70 words [and] three passages. Melania Trump said, 'you work hard for what you get in life.' John Legend said, 'work hard to be anything you want in life.' Kid Rock said, 'work hard to be anything you want in life.'"

Spicer continued, "Melania Trump said, 'the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.' Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony said, 'this is your dream. Anything you can do in your dreams, you can do now.'"
