Donald Trump Quotes Bane From The Dark Knight Rises In Inauguration Speech

On Friday, Donald Trump was inaugurated at the 45th President of the United States of America.

During his speech in Washington D.C., now President Donald Trump quoted an unusual villain. Prior to capping the speech with his signature, "And, yes, we will make America great again!" the President quoted a line from Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy finale: The Dark Knight Rises.

As you can see in the video below, President Trump promised to give America back to the people, saying "We're giving it back to you, the people."

In The Dark Knight Rises, Bane freed prisoners in Gotham City and stood atop a car to address the citizens, saying, "And we give it back to you, the people."

The uncanny parallel can be seen in the video below.


In the video, Bane is played by Tom Hardy, who has since become an icon in geek culture for his portrayal the DC Comics villain.

This is not the only time today which comparisons have been made between President Trump and live action characters based on comics. In a recent interview, The Walking Dead star Lennie James compared the new President to the villain of his AMC series, Negan.
