Mostly consisting of recycled stump speeches delivered on the campaign trail, President Trump’s inaugural address was most notablefor the parts which resembled the ominous speech delivered by the evil Bane in the third installment of the most recent Batman trilogy?
President Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States on Friday, delivering his first speech as President in front of the grand neoclassical columns of the U.S. Capitol Building.

But Donald Trump appears to have lifted a quote directly from the Batman: The Dark Knight Rises villain Bane in his inaugural address.
While mostly consisting of recycled stump speeches delivered on the campaign trail, we see how parts of President Trump’s speech resembled the one delivered by bad guy Bane after committing an act of domestic terrorism. Trump said that for too long the US had been controlled by the elites. He promised he’d be taking America back from the elites, “and giving it back to you the people.”
“Today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another. But we are transferring power from Washington D.C. and giving it back to you… the people (emphasis ours). For too long a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have born the cost. Washington flourished but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs and while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land. That all changes starting right here and right now because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you.”
“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. Gotham is yours. None shall interfere. Do as you please. Start by storming Blackgate, and freeing the oppressed! Step forward those who would serve. For and army will be raised. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests, and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. The police will survive, as they learn to serve true justice. This great city… it will endure. Gotham will survive!”
Usuncut reports that Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, “Keep America Great,” was the same exact tagline used for the 2016 horror flick The Purge: Election Year.
After the inauguration former KKK Imperial Wizard David Duke sent his congratulations to Donald Trump. He tweeted: “We did it!”
