On Tuesday, the Republican National Committee's chief strategist, Sean Spicer, reportedly attempted
to argue that the lines Melania allegedly swiped from a past speech given by Obama were common phrases used by numerous celebrities. "When it comes to the speech, let’s actually put this in perspective,” Spicer said. “In a 2,000-word statement, we’re talking about 70 words, three passages. Melania Trump said, 'You work hard for what you get in life.' John Legend said, 'Work hard to be anything you want in life.' Kid Rock said, ‘Work hard to be anything you want in life.'"
