Donald Trump’s inauguration speech evokes fellow man of the people Bane

The Dark Knight Rises

We always sort of pegged Barron Trump as the future Batman villain of the family, but apparently Donald Trump is also trying to taunt Bruce Wayne into revealing himself. In his unsettlingly pugilistic inauguration speech earlier today, Trump said: “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.”

Compare that to Bane’s big speech on the steps of Blackgate Prison in The Dark Knight Rises, where he says: “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 to you, the people.” You can compare the two statements below. Ticket holders to Sunday’s playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons can hereby consider themselves warned.
