In a memorable moment, at the end of classic flick Legally Blonde, Elle Woods (played ever so charmingly by Reese Witherspoon) took the stage, after graduating from Harvard Law. In the graduation address that had us all learning every word.
She threw shade at her ex. She talked about how first impressions are rubbish and that female friendships are everything. She quoted Aristotle. Her speech was one for the ages.
But apparently the speech was SO GOOD that even the President of the United States wanted a sample. In a recent commencement speech Donald Trump made at Liberty University, talk show host Jimmy Fallon noticed a few stark similarities between the two.
In his opening monologue on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, the host insinuated that Trump’s speech was in fact stolen from the 2001 film.
Sure, Jimmy definitely took some liberties editing the footage, and whether he’s the right person to be tearing into Trump is also questionable (where was this attitude during Trump’s campaign for presidency?!) but the video is still fucking hilarious.
Now, just to wait for the president to cameo in a Ricky Martin video.
