Trump: Media spent more time analyzing Melania than FBI spent on Clinton.

After Melania Trump — the wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump — gave her well-received speech on the opening night of the Republican National Convention, the liberal media was quick to search for a line of attack and pounce.

Shortly after Melania’s speech, the mainstream media stuck her in the middle of controversy and filled the airwaves for 24 hours with headlines blaring accusations of her speech writers committing plagiarism.

Instead of touting typical liberal media talking points praising left-wing feminism (as they always do), they outright ignored Mrs. Trump for being a strong conservative female role model, who shined a light on the hard work and values that it took to bring her to this historic moment in life.

The liberal media spotlight instead shifted focus to anything that could potentially damage Melania Trump’s public reputation and persona — and her husband’s campaign.

In a well-orchestrated attack, virtually all media coverage of Melania’s speech became marred by accusations of “plagiarism,” with several passages of her personal story of love and her journey to America containing similarities to Michelle Obama’s speech at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Rest assured, nobody was more satisfied to see Donald Trump’s wife drawing negative criticism from the press than the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.

But the Trump campaign never backs down from a good ol’ fashioned fight. And they quickly struck back with a pinprick to the heart of the attacks.

Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s convention manager, fired back after CNN kicked off the news cycle with the plagiarism accusations:

“I mean, this is, once again, an example of when a woman threatens Hillary Clinton, how she seeks out to demean her and take her down. It’s not going to work.”

Paul Manafort was referencing Bill Clinton’s long history of rape and sexual assault accusations from dozens of women.  Some of those women maintain that Hillary Clinton enabled her husband to commit those horrendous acts by attacking their character and dismissing their stories.

Maybe Manafort is on to something.
