Melania Trump might get away with plagiarizing Michelle Obama's speech, but don't try to pull such a stunt in school or college!
During a town hall meeting in Fairfax, VA, John Kasich proudly proclaimed that during some of his earlier political campaigns women "left their kitchens" to support him. Since there are people out there who view women as real people who aren't confined to the kitchen, that didn't go over very well.

Catch the GOP debate on CNBC tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
President Obama knows that Donald Trump is probably stressing out over the Aug. 5 first Republican primary debate, so he decided to offer some advice.
Jimmy Fallon's Donald Trump impression might be as weak as his ring finger, but the jokes that spring from this little interaction stand on their own. Plus, half the fun of watching a Jimmy Fallon impression is seeing how far away he can get from the real thing.
This phone preparation covers a great many topics between the sitting president and the man who led the birther cause.
They joked on Chris Christie, Trump got his own Cecil the lion trophy and the whole thing ended with an autotuned duet of OMI's Cheerleader.
Trump's probably had a busy enough week, what with answering all those phone calls after his cell number went public.
That surely won't stop the fireworks from blowing up in tomorrow's debate as the top 10 polled contenders for the Republican party nomination spar for a chance to say anything slightly meaningful in the most presidential way possible.
Normally, something akin to what Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in South Carolina would cause an uproar -- and it still has time to -- but his comments were typical Republican blame game stuff, that all people can do at this point is chuckle. What did Rubio say?
