The internet had a strong reaction to the allegations that Melania Trump plagiarized some of her speech at this year's Republican National Convention from Michelle Obama's speech in 2008.

It began with the simple hashtag #MelaniaTrump, with people making endless jokes about the speech.

The event made teachers across the country cheer as they finally have an example to show their students on the dangers of plagiarizing. They knew the dangers, but now the entire country does as well.

It then moved into #plagerism which people eventually realized should be #plagiarism. 

Next to trend was #Mylittlepony when an RNC official defended Mrs. Trump's speech, saying it could be compared to a "My Little Pony" quote among many things.

#FamousMelianaTrumpQuotes also made the list with the sarcastic voices of Twitter taking over to further the joke. Once again... #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes would be the correct spelling.

Then came this gem... a parody of the speech composed of some of the classics. The field day continues with these hashtags and they do not seem to be slowing down any time soon.
