What is plagiarism?

I’ve seen 5 or 6 people post the old “Obama stole Deval Patrick’s phrases” because they haven’t done enough actual reading about it and they are Trump mentality.

Deval Patrick told Obama to use those phrases. Obama even then said that he should have given credit to Patrick but it was (my friend) Deval’s idea to have him use.

Melania Trump lifted full paragraphs surreptitiously.

The latter is plagiarism the former is not.
