President Trump Quoted Bane From ‘Dark Knight Rises’ At Inauguration

Does Bane live again?! President Donald Trump (accidentally) quoted the Batman villain Bane in his inauguration speech on Friday, January 20.

Trump’s words were quite similar to what Bane screamed to the citizens of Gotham City just before he took control of the city.

Here is what Trump, 70, said outside the Capitol:

“Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because 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,”

And here is what Bane said in the 2012 movie The Dark Knight Rises:

“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.”
