Former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden appears to have used a line from “creepy porn lawyer” Michael Avenatti in his speech yesterday.
Speaking to a crowd in Iowa, Biden said, “I think it’s time, you know, [Trump] says, ‘let’s Make America Great Again,’ let’s make America America again.”
But, as Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire points out, that phrase was first coined by none other than disgraced lawyer, Michael Avenatti:

Avenatti used the phrase “Make America America Again” numerous times last year while toying with the prospect of running for office.
Unfortunately, his political aspirations were cut short after he was recently indicted by a federal grand jury in Los Angeles on 36 counts of fraud, perjury, stealing from clients, among other crimes. He faces up to 335 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
Last week, as the Daily Wire reports, Biden was accused of plagiarizing a climate change plan:
Last week Biden was hit with charges of plagiarism after his campaign published “a $1.7 trillion climate change plan that appeared to copy a handful of passages from previously published documents,” Politico reported. “The incident recalled the plagiarism incident that helped drive Biden from the 1988 presidential race, though Biden’s campaign team called the latest episode an error that was corrected.”
