President Donald Trump is facing accusations of plagiarism after someone spotted a few eerie similarities between a speech he gave at Liberty University and one that features in the film Legally Blonde.
If the old adage is true, and behind every great man there really is a great woman then, for Trump at least, that woman appears to be Reece Witherspoon’s Ellie Wood, the film comedy’s heroine who defies her critics to end up the toast of Harvard.
But if Trump was hoping for a similar level of success this time round, he may be left sorely disappointed after the eagle-eyed team behind the scenes on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon spotted how similar the two speeches were and broadcast it to the world.
Not that Trump out and out plagiarised it of course.
No, like all good University students desperately stealing an essay off boredofstudy.com, he’s done the sensible thing and rearranged the words.
That way, it’s original, right?
Anyway, it’s not like this is the first time a member of the Trump clan has been caught out for copying their homework.
Who could forget Melania Trump’s famous speech which sounded almost exactly the same as a previous effort from Michelle Obama. Mainly because it was.
