What Is Wrong With These People!?!?!

Now Donald Trump Jr lifted some lines!!!! Check it out.

As this story has unfolded, it appears that the author of a Spring article in the American Conservative, Frank Buckley, also helped Don Jr. write his speech. So Buckley was in essence recycling his own anecdote into a speech he was helping write for Don Jr. That is certainly irregular for a speech writer. But there’s no injured party since it’s Buckley reusing something presumably he wrote himself. What’s amazing about this is how exactly, after last night, did either Trump or Buckley or really anyone else involved think it might be a good idea to remove this passage from the speech?

The deeper story here is that Melania and Don Jr have seriously upped the ante for Trump on who he’ll plagiarize Thursday evening.
