Melania Trump has been torn apart endlessly by the media and the Democrats for plagiarizing part of Michelle Obama’s 2008 DNC speech, but it looks like the Democrats aren’t much better when it comes to the creativity department.
Check out these six famous Democrats who have also stolen someone else’s work:
1. President Barack Obama
During Obama’s 2008 campaign, he gave speeches that bore a striking resemblance to speeches given by former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick.
Check out the videos below.
When caught Obama did admit he should have gave credit to Patrick, but that was the last we heard of the controversy.

2. Vice President Joe Biden
Joe Biden’s failed 1988 Presidential campaign was plagued with all kinds of plagiarism, the worst of which was when he stole lines from British politician Neil Kinnock.
Looks like Biden is no better than Obama.
You have not done your homework. Plagarism has run rampant with Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Michelle Obama. Get your facts straight!!!

3. Rep. Ami Bera
He wrote a column in the Sacramento Bee in favor of the Trade Promotion Authority bill in 2015. It was found out by Buzzfeed that Bera took statements from Third Way, Business Roundtable and a White House economic report. He eventually admitted to the plagiarism.
OOPS… Pardon my plagiarism!

4. Former Sen. John Walsh
Walsh plagiarized an entire page from a Harvard paper without any kind of attribution in his paper for his master’s degree at the U.S. Army War College. He was forced to drop out of the Senate race in the 2014 elections as a result of this.
This gentleman was briefly a senator until his plagiarism was exposed. https://t.co/8rhP1kDDcR

5. Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf
It was found out during the 2014 gubernatorial race that parts of his policy on energy efficiency were taken from an energy company called Johnson Controls.

6. Former Democratic Senate candidate Gordon Ball
According to Buzzfeed, Ball who ran in 2014 appears to have plagiarized almost every word on his issues pages from a wide variety of politicians including West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
7. Sen. Elizabeth Warren
Warren has claimed for quite some time that she is of Native American heritage.
Pressured to prove this claim, she claimed that her cousin was the editor of a 1984 cookbook called “Pow Wow Chow.”
Hmmm, but something seems a little off.
Warren herself apparently submitted some recipes, but it turns out almost half of them weren’t hers.
Check out these images provided by the Boston Herald.
Also, it looks like her “Herbed Tomatoes” recipe may have been copied from a 1959 Better Homes and Garden recipe.
At least Melania Trump isn't a VP contender who could be a heartbeat away from the presidency. https://t.co/ZC3skXbZHb

Don’t let the Democrats try to feign a moral high ground because usually they’ve done something much worse.
