Crowd Cheers Class Valedictorian For Quoting Trump During His Speech, Then Learns Obama Said It
Bell County High School's class valedictorian Ben Bowling trolled his entire class when he purposefully misquoted Obama during his valedictorian speech, leading the entire audience to believe that he was quoting Donald Trump.
“This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google,” he said. “‘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.”
When the crowd burst into applause, Bowling quickly amended his quote.
“Just kidding,” he said. “That was Barack Obama."
Damn, Bowling. That's some wonderfully executed trolling right there. You can see a video of the funny moment below:

According to The New York Times, Bowling was quoting a May 2012 commencement speech President Obama gave to the graduating class of Barnard College in New York City.
Clearly, the class clown can get pretty far in life.
