Oh Twilight Sparkle - Say It Isn't So

This story is the best news I have heard in a long time. I love this so much I can barely contain my girlish glee. My Little Pony? They had to drag out the My Little Pony Defence? That is dirty, even for American politics. I so wish that Donald could come out and just say I FUCKED UP just once because for such a micromanager he sure missed this. I think someone did it on purpose to tell you the truth. They knew it would be caught and they wanted to bring down Trump even further. I so hope that is the case because this world needs more heroes like that. Less sycophants and more free thinkers.

Republicans have come up with a new excuse for Melania Trump’s convention speech plagiarism. According to the RNC, Mrs. Trump may have lifted phrases from My Little Pony, not First Lady Michelle Obama.

There are some problems with this latest excuse:

1). Michelle Obama gave her speech in 2008. The latest My Little Pony series debuted in 2010.
2). It is being reported that part of the speechwriting process for the Trump convention is to go through stacks of old convention speeches.
3). Twilight Sparkle has never given a speech at a political convention.
4). Michelle Obama has given speeches at national political conventions.
5). Melania Trump stole from Michelle Obama.
6). It is unclear if Twilight Sparkle is also a plagiarist.
How dare Donald Trump and the RNC drag Twilight Sparkle through the mud to cover for the plagiarizing Trumps?

Somebody is guilty of plagiarism here, and I don’t think it is the cartoon pony.
