The Writer Behind The Speech

In the wake of accusations that would-be FLOTUS Melania Trump plagiarized from a speech by current FLOTUS Michelle Obama, the writer of Trump's speech has gotten into the public eye.  Various media sources have tracked down and reported information about Meredith McIver, who served as Trump's speechwriter.  Among the details:

She has been a member of the "Trump Organization" since 2001.

She has co-written five books with Donald Trump, and has written her own poems and short stories.

She was a ballet dancer, attending ballet school on a Ford Foundation scholarship.

She graduated with honors from University of Utah, majoring in English.

She is a registered Democrat.  Therefore, I'd say that Ms. McIver remembering words from Ms. Obama is not outside the realm of plausibility.
