Donald Trump’s campaign manager flatly denied the possibility of plagiarism in Melania Trump’s Monday night address to the Republican convention, despite striking similarities to passages in Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic convention speech.

“There’s no cribbing of Michelle Obama’s speech,” top aide Paul Manafort said Tuesday on CNN. “These are common words and values — that she cares about her family, things like that. She was speaking in front of 35 million people last night; she knew that. To think that she would be cribbing Michelle Obama’s words is crazy.”

Rather than specify whether a Trump staffer was responsible for the similar text, Manafort pinned the blame on the presumptive Democratic nominee.

“This is once again an example of when a woman threatens Hillary Clinton, how [Clinton] seeks to demean her and take her down,” Manafort said on CNN. “It’s not going to work.”
