Oh, Trump voters. You are so very predictable. You love to hate everything about President Obama, despite his wildly successful two terms, both of which were largely scandal-free. Well, except for the manufactured ones and the straight up conspiratorial ones aimed at smearing him.
That makes this moment all the more hilarious. A high school valedictorian in Bell County, Kentucky was giving his speech to his peers and their proud parents when he dropped a wise, quote from Donald J. Trump. From USA Today:
“This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google,” Bowling said in his speech. “‘Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.’ — Donald J. Trump.”
The crowd burst into applause.
“Just kidding,” Bowling said. “That was Barack Obama.”
The 18-year-old valedictorian said the crowd quickly went silent.
“The crowd erupted in applause and before they could even finish clapping I said I was kidding and the applause quickly died,” Bowling said.
As USA Today notes, Bell County went 80% for Donald Trump. The moment was briefly captured and no joke, when he revealed it was actually Obama, some in the crowd started booing.
