Donald Trump gave a speech that sounded a lot like the one given by Elle Woods in Legally Blonde

By on

No bend and snap though 😢

Donald Trump appeared to take inspiration from Legally Blonde character Elle Woods during a speech he recently gave to university students in Virginia.

Popular US chat show The Tonight Show sent the internet into meltdown when it pointed out the striking similarities between Trump’s address and one given by the fictional lawyer.

Speaking to graduates at Liberty University on Saturday, Trump says in the clip (embedded above):

You must go forth into to the world. Passion, courage in your conviction, most importantly, be true to yourself. I did it.

Now compare that with Woods’ line in the 2001 film:

We take our next steps into the world, it is with passion, courage of conviction, and most importantly, have faith in yourself. We did it.

The mash-up clip, posted on The Tonight Show’s official Twitter page yesterday, has already racked up a whopping 43,000 retweets and hundreds of comments. One Twitter user — appearing to have a pop at the president’s glowing complexion — commented “legally orange”, while another went for “OMG what is going on?!! Really..”

The hilarious comparison comes just a week after it emerged that one of Trump’s daughters would heading to law school. Tiffany Trump will join Georgetown University in Washington later this year.

Not Amused

“Trump: ‘No politician in history has been treated more unfairly'” (The Guardian)

You (the media) and him (the orange one) – you are both just as bad as each other. It’s a bizarre symbiotic relationship and it has very little to do with the actual job politics and politicians are supposed to do …



Bizarre. Surely coincidence?!

Why a coincidence? It’s brief, has no “big words” is seen frequently on TV and there is already a family history of plagiarism. Do it the lazy way (like a one page budget plan) or order someone else to do it..that seems to be the Trump pattern. How insulting for that graduating class.



All the original, incisive and funny comments posted on Twitter in response to that mash up and you went for “OMG what is going on?!! Really..”



The D is surely a lunatic.
