Trump Accidentally Quoted a Batman Villain in His Inauguration Speech

Whoops. I have a feeling that won't be the last time we as a nation utter that word in the next four years, but at least we can get a laugh out of this Trump boo-boo.

During his inauguration speech earlier today, newly sworn-in President Trump accidentally quoted Batman villain Bane, and we have the internet to thank (as usual) for pointing it out. Trump's words about giving power back to the people are eerily similar to a line spoken by Bane in The Dark Knight Rises.

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."

In the 2012 Batman film, Bane tells Gotham City, "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."

There's even a video comparison of the two moments circulating on Twitter—because Twitter always knows how to find the humor in any bad situation.
