In the aftermath of the tainted speech and the subsequent character assassination of Melania Trump, a member of the Republican Presidential nominee’s team has stepped forward and absorbed the blame.
Speech writer Meredith McIver took the proverbial fall and admitted in an open letter to being careless in cross-checking content and phrasing with specific elements from Michelle Obama’s address. McIver, who has co-authored a book with Trump, offered her immediate and public resignation. The Trump campaign decided to ultimately forgive the costly mistake.
While the nation learned that Melania Trump is an eloquent and graceful speaker, the reality of the grinds and rigors of a full-time campaign were on full display with the erroneous support effort from a seemingly reliable and competent employee. While the conspiracy theorist will want to pursue an investigation to uncover possible bribery or other related vehicles of subversion, it’s officially onward to the next newsworthy event in the stretch run for the prize of Commander in Chief.
