CLEVELAND, Ohio — New Hampshire state representative Al Baldasaro, an adviser on veterans issues for Donald Trump’s campaign, is now defending Melania Trump against mainstream media allegations that she plagiarized her speech at the GOP National Convention.

“Tell the liberal media to kiss off because it’s a shame what’s going on. This is a disgrace,” Baldasaro told Breitbart News outside the Quicken Loans Arena.

He continued:

Here’s a mother, here’s a model, here’s a business woman — why can’t they praise her accomplishments and try to pick and choose certain words? Irregardless of who wrote the speech…the bottom line is she presented herself as a professional — God’s gift to the Republicans.

“Get over it and stop being jealous of the future first lady,” he concluded.

Earlier in the election cycle, Baldasaro famously defended the Republican nominee during a combative press conference on Trump’s fundraising for veterans.
