The Liberal magazine Newsweek made a stupid charge against Ivanka Trump. They claimed she plagiarized herself. Her brother Donald Trump Jr. came to her defense on Twitter:
I’m old enough to remember when Newsweek knew what plagiarism means. https://t.co/nqmagFkSU6

Here’s an excerpt from Newsweek’s article:
The city of Hyderabad had been anticipating White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump’s speech at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit for months, banning the act of begging in the streets, rounding up the homeless and building a shopping center in preparation for the international envoy.
It may have seemed safe to assume the first daughter’s speechwriters were working overtime as well, preparing a robust keynote address that would showcase her appreciation of women entrepreneurs in India and their contributions to technology and the workplace.
While Trump did say a few lines crafted specifically for the event she was attending—”In this ‘City of Pearls,’ the greatest treasure is you!” she said, citing Hyderabad’s moniker to an applauding audience—it appeared the breadth of her talking points were recycled from a previous speech she gave during a foreign trip earlier this month.
Several lines the 36-year-old delivered Tuesday had been directly pulled from her poorly attended November 2 speech in Tokyo, where she attended the World Assembly for Women alongside Japanese President Shinzo Abe.
Does Newsweek have any idea how dumb they look for saying this?
