During the inauguration speech, the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald Trump quoted Batman villain, Bane.
It happened during his speech in Washington D.C., where President Donald Trump quoted The Dark Knight Rises. President Trump made a promise to America: “We’re giving it back to you, the people.”
The line parallels Bane’s speech in The Dark Knight Rises. In the film he addresses citizens of Gotham City and says, “We give it back to you, the people.”
Videos of the scene from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy edited with Trump’s inauguration speech went viral on Friday.
Twitter users also commented on the Bane-Trump comparison:
Today Trump quoted Bane saying he’s giving power back to the people. Since over 3m more people voted for Hilary, is he making her president?

the problem with the Trump-as-Bane formulation is that the guy who defeats Bane is a law and order billionaire with a rage problem
