Well played, Joyce Beatty. The Ohio congresswoman wore the same dress during her speech Thursday at the Democratic National Convention that Melania Trump wore for her speech at the Republican National Convention. As many on Twitter put it, she plagiarized the plagiarist. 

Trump famously plagiarized first lady Michelle Obama's speech from the 2008 Democratic National Convention with her speech at this year's RNC, participating in the history of white people stealing from and appropriating black culture

Beatty is taking some power back with one small and hilarious gesture: a dress. 

People on Twitter are loving Beatty's sartorial choice.
