Newsweek: Ivanka Trump Plagiarized Herself

Newsweek really jumped the shark Thursday when they claimed that Ivanka Trump “plagiarize[d] one of her own speeches” during her trip to India.


Newsweek bashed Ivanka for reusing lines from some of her old speeches. Of course, that’s not plagiarism, as plagiarism requires the words or ideas be taken from someone else.

Recycling speeches and parts of speeches is pretty standard for people who have a lot of speaking engagements.

“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,” Newsweek writer Chris Riotta snarked.

Riotta admitted that its common practice to reuse pieces of speeches, but argued that Ivanka proved she had nothing “else to say about women’s empowerment” and “show[s] where the first daughter’s focus lies in the White House.”

You want plagiarism? I'll give you plagiarism.

The credibility of Massachusetts Democratic Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren took another hit today as Boston radio talk show host Howie Carr released evidence that appears to confirm Ms. Warren may have plagiarized at least three of the five recipes she submitted to the 1984 Pow Wow Chow cookbook edited by her cousin Candy Rowsey.

Two of the possibly plagiarized recipes, said in the Pow Wow Chow cookbook to have been passed down through generations of Oklahoma Native American members of the Cherokee tribe, are described in a NewYork Times News Service story as originating at Le Pavilion, a fabulously expensive French restaurant in Manhattan. The dishes were said to be particular favorites of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Cole Porter.

The two recipes, “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat” and “Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing,” appear in an article titled “Cold Omelets with Crab Meat,” written by Pierre Franey of the New York Times News Service that was published in the August 22, 1979 edition of the Virgin Islands Daily News, a copy of which can be seen here.

Ms. Warren’s 1984 recipe for Crab with Tomato Mayonnaise Dressing is a word-for-word copy of Mr. Franey’s 1979 recipe.

Mrs. Warren’s 1984 recipe for Cold Omelets with Crab Meat contains all four of the ingredients listed in Mr. Franey’s 1979 recipe in the exact same portion but lists five additional ingredients. More significantly, her instructions are virtually a word for word copy of Mr. Franey’s instructions from this 1979 article. Both instructions specify the use of a “seven inch Teflon pan.”


Hmmm. Native American princess speak with forked tongue, or write with forked pencil, or whatever.

Bet you didn't see this story on CBSNBCABCCNNNPR.
