He Quoted A Batman Villain In His Inaugural Address

I have to be honest with you.

I thought for sure I just going to be writing one post today.

I mean, how much can you screw up in one day?

Of course, when the subject is Donald Trump, the answer is “a lot” and I’m stupid for assuming otherwise.

So, what else did he do today? Well, according to Mashable, he quoted a Batman villain in his Inaugural Address. Bane to be exact.

You really can’t make this stuff up. I mean you could, but nobody would believe you…even though it’s Donald Trump we’re talking about. Although, on the other hand, it does make some sense that a comic book villain President would quote an actual comic book villain.

So what did he plagiarize from the man who broke Batman’s back?

Take a look for yourself…

Trump: But we are transferring power from Washington D.C. and giving it back to you… the people. For too long a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have born the cost.
 
Bane: We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you… the people.

Obviously, it’s not exact word-for-word rip off, but dang.

At least Melania plagiarized somebody classy and intelligent like Michelle Obama.

You know, somebody who’s not a homicidal maniac.

But not, Donald. No, not Donald. He had to go with the comic book villain.

Because of course he did.
