While the media is focused on the passages Melania Trump stole from Michelle Obama's 2008 convention speech, there is another odd line in the prospective first lady's GOP convention address that is now getting attention. Donald Trump's third wife apparently "rickrolled" America when she said "He will never, ever, give up. And, most importantly, he will never, ever, let you down."

The similarity to the lyrics from Rick Astley's song -- which is the internet's most infamous memes -- and the lifting of Obama's speech makes one wonder if there is a speech writer in the Trump campaign who purposefully set her up.
