The RNC Is Using 'My Little Pony' To Defend Melania TrumpJuly 19, 2016
For those of you who've been living under a rock, there's been quite a bit of controversy over Melania Trump's speech at the Republican National Convention. Specifically, how eerily similar it is to Michelle Obama's at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.
RNC Communications Director Sean Spicer defended Melania Trump by quoting Akon, John Legend and, yes, "My Little Pony." His argument: Statements, like "you work hard for what you want in life," are common; therefore, Melania Trump's speech wasn't plagiarism.

Needless to say, Twitter had fun with that one.
Even the voice of Twilight Sparkle herself, Tara Strong, chimed in.
