Not since Melania Trump stole Michelle Obama's speech has anyone plagiarized an Obama the way GOP candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has.
From his "What is a skinny guy with an odd last name doing up here?" remark at the first Republican debate this year to his recent, "I believe deep in my bones … E pluribus unum…" swipe, it seems Ramaswamy can't go anywhere without mimicking, almost verbatim, lines from former President Barack Obama.
For example, as seen in a new ad that was released by a super PAC trying to revive DeSantis' failed campaign (see full video below, posted by Mike Sington):
Obama: "This has never been a Democratic or Republican idea."
Ramaswamy: "These are not Democrat ideas or Republican ideas."
Obama: "This is an American idea."
Ramaswamy: "These are fundamentally American ideals."
Obama: "Imagine they were driving a car, and they drove it into the ditch, you can't have the keys back!"
Ramaswamy: "If someone has repeatedly crashed your car, you wanna turn over the keys to the same people who crashed it?"
Obama: "We are one people!"
Ramaswamy: "I have a dream, that we can be one people again."
Like a deceptive middle-schooler using AI to do all his homework, the insincere GOP candidate fits in perfectly with the MAGA party.
