Make Your Own Plagiarized Convention Speech

1 minute read

In her address to Republican delegates Monday night, Donald Trump’s wife Melania borrowed several phrases from the speech that First Lady Michelle Obama delivered to the Democratic convention eight years ago. The blunder forced the campaign to play defense all of Tuesday.

But Melania Trump should not have all the fun.

This TIME interactive allows you to make your own cribbed Republican Convention acceptance speech by lifting the words of candidates going back to 1960. (We’ll mix and match the lines and string them together for you.)

Click or tap the names to toggle your sources and the paragraphs themselves to see who originally said it. A few of the original lines have been lightly modified to refer to Trump’s cohort in place of the contemporary names.
