The best player in the NBA has gotten on the President Trump sounded like Bane yesterday train.
A video went viral on social media Friday, comparing part of Donald Trump’s inaugural speech to that of what Bane says during a speech in The Dark Knight Rises.
Here’s what Bane says in the movie:
“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.”
And here’s what Trump said during his speech yesterday:
“Today we are not merely transferring power from one administration or another … we are transferring power from Washington DC and giving it back to you – the people.”
It’s a stretch, obviously, but that hasn’t stopped even the biggest of celebrities from posting it, helping it go viral on Twitter and Instagram.
Like, for instance, LeBron James.
