So rather than being a case of plagiarism, it was a case of lazysim. Buckley just took a line from the article that he wrote and recycled it in Don Jr's speech.
But what is most noteworthy now that Buckley has been identified himself as Don Jr's speechwriter is who Buckley is. He is a Foundation Professor at the heavily Koch brothers funded George Mason University School of Law. He is also a BIG Donakd Trump suppporter. Nearly all of his recent American Spectator articles are defenses of Trump.
But Buckley is one strange cat, when he is not reclycling lines from his articles and putting them in his client's national speeches, he is calling for "socialist ends by capitalist means.”
During an interview with Josh Keefe in Donald Trump Sr's son-in-law's newspaper, The Observer, the ,ahem. logic he used to defend the presidential candidate went like this:
I’ve got a home mortgage interest deduction, so I’m a taker. I have a number of older friends who have had health issues and but for Medicare they’d be bankrupt. And these are solid conservatives I’m talking about; they’re discovering they are takers as well. We’re all both. We’re all both givers and takers and we are all Americans and we shouldn’t be divided. We are looking for someone to bring us together.He goes on in the article to support single payer healthcare:
I think that would help a great deal.Across the board, the people surrounding the Trump family are very scary.
