Defending Mrs Trump as A Mere Spouter of Platitudes
Fox News et al are defending Mrs Trump and suggesting that she simply shared a number of platitudes the sort or which one hears at every election.
Let’s suppose that’s true. Mrs Trump likes cliches and is bound to repeat them without any interjection of originality. This raises a serious issue for Trump’s supporters because- whether they recognize it or not- this makes her quite intellectually deficient.
If the best one can do is spout cliches, one’s intellect is seriously in doubt. Defending Mrs Trump’s plagiarism with the claim of platitudes doesn’t really help her very much. Indeed, it doesn’t really help her at all.
