Melania Trump delivered a solid speech Monday night at the Republican National Convention. Yet within an hour, a huge controversy emerged. Did her speech plagiarize portions of Michelle Obama's 2008 speech at the Democratic National Convention?
"I have to tell you up front. I would be shocked if Melania or Donald knew what was happening last night," Glenn said during his radio program on Tuesday. "She has been done a grave disservice by somebody."
The Trump campaign responded by saying Mrs. Trump wrote the speech, which is unfortunate. When you hear it word-for-word, side-by-side, it appears to be more than a coincidence.
"Donald Trump needs to fire whoever was assisting his wife on that speech and needs to make it public, because she was torpedoed. What was a great speech and a great presentation is going to just be remembered as, 'Oh, my gosh, she's fake. She didn't mean any of those words,'" Glenn said.
The speech was well received by those watching from the convention floor and elsewhere.
"I watched it, and I'm like, 'Okay, you know, she's really good. She could be Jackie Onassis,'" Glenn said.
But just an hour after the speech, Mrs. Trump was being mocked and hammered for plagiarizing Michelle Obama.
"I don't blame Melania Trump for this at all. Somebody in the speechwriting process screwed up on this, and it's their fault," co-host Stu Burguiere added.
"Somebody he has hired or the GOP hired is either wildly incompetent or a saboteur. Because this was a horrible mistake last night," Glenn said.
