We're speaking, of course, about the bad guy in the last Batman movie — Bane in “The Dark Knight Rises.”
And: yes, okay, President Trump's inaugural address hit some of the same notes.
Democrats pretty much across the board slammed Trump's speech as “dark” and “divisive.”
President Trump's dark portrait of America, crime ridden & weak, makes me long for Obama. Miss his optimism & hope and its only been an hour— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) January 20, 2017
A dark, dystopian, defiant inaugural speech that begins a new presidency without aspiration or reconciliation.— Gerry Connolly (@GerryConnolly) January 20, 2017
But beyond the thematic similarities, a short section of Trump's speech sounded like it could have been lifted word-for-word from Bane. Watch and decide for yourself.
