Donald Trump Just Quoted Bane In His Inaugural Speech

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."

This is a very suspiciously close reference to the Batman villain saying 'We give Gotham back to you!'

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

The tweets came pouring in...

It remains to be seen whether The Donald was born in the darkness.
