Donald Trump is, amongst many other things, a walking PR disaster.
Right now though, he's part of a disaster that isn't of his making. This time it is his wife Melania who is responsible for it all.
Melania Trump spoke at the GOP convention on Monday and won over many Republicans but the real world was far more sceptical.
Within hours people had uncovered that large segments of her speech mirrored Michelle Obama's from 2008 at the Democratic National Convention.
When you listen to @MELANIATRUMP's speech & later realize she plagiarized @FLOTUS's 2008 DNC speech...#morningjoe pic.twitter.com/TuaWXrO8cW

It didn't stop there as one man appearing on CNN, RNC chief strategist Sean Spicer, cited that My Little Pony's Twilight Sparkle may have been a reference for Melania.
Thei100 handily picked up on what Spicer said: "Melania Trump said, 'the strength of your dreams and 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'."
He then mentioned that John Legend lyrics were also cited:
"Melania Trump said 'you work hard for what you get in life.' John Legend said 'work hard to be anything you want in life.'"
Legend tweeted saying "I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative" which is exactly what Taylor Swift tweeted following this week's Kanye and Kim debacle. Lad.

I'm not sure it's the 'perfect' response but certainly a good one!
