A big congratulations to Donald Trump on becoming the 45th President of the United States of America, and an even bigger ha-ha-ha to the fact that he nabbed a quote from Bane in The Dark Night Rises.
In his address, President Trump told the supporters who came out to Washington DC to cheer the real estate mogul on, and pretty much the entire world’s population: “We’re giving the power back to you. The people.”
Uhhh Trump just quoted Bane from Batman. “We’re giving the power back to you. The people.”

This is a very suspiciously close reference to the Batman villain saying ‘We give Gotham back to you!’
Pretty sure Trump just quoted Bane there with “giving power back to you. The people…”

Bane, a supervillain who combines a mix of pure brawn with mass intelligence, was portrayed by Tom Hardy in the Christopher Nolan blockbuster.
