All she had to do was say "im a former model not a speech writer, i am not a native english speaker i hired someone to help me take my thoughts and ideas and turn them into something that i could share with the people. I read the finished work and thought it correctly expressed what i wanted to say. I had no idea parts of it were plagiarized. I apologize for that but i stand by the speech i gave".
Then no one would be able to say anything about it. 90% of the people giving speeches today are hiring people to write them. She hired a pro and got burned. Big deal.
But...like her sugar daddy...she told everyone how hard she worked on it and how she did it with very little help from anyone else...and after it happened she didn't immediately own up to it...so now shes an internet meme.
