Crowd cheers when valedictorian quotes Trump. Then reveals it was Obama

 

Thomas Novelly, Louisville Courier Journal Published 4:11 p.m. ET June 3, 2018 | Updated 6:51 p.m. ET June 3, 2018

 

Bell County high school student and valedictorian Ben Bowling wanted to share some words of wisdom with his graduating class, but there was a twist that no one saw coming.

 

"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."

 

Also: Kentucky valedictorian's speech too much for religion that favors silence

 

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.

 

Bowling, who graduated on Saturday morning, told Courier Journal that he "didn't mean anything bad by it" and thought the moment was lighthearted and funny.

 

“I just thought it was a really good quote,” Bowling said. “Most people wouldn’t like it if I used it, so I thought I’d use Donald Trump’s name. It is southeastern Kentucky after all.”

 

Check this out: It's time for pomp and circumstance — and high school graduation photo galleries!

 

Bell County, which is located in the southeastern part of the Commonwealth near the Tennessee border, overwhelmingly supported Trump in the 2016 Presidential election. Nearly 80 percent of ballots were cast for the political outsider and celebrity.

 

Bowling said there was no backlash to his speech at all.

 

"There was a portion of the crowd that thought it was absolutely hilarious," Alisha Russell, a Kentucky law student who attended the ceremony said in a Twitter message. "But there was definitely some collective groaning too."

Typical Obama. Inciting violence again.

 

Trump would have said "Don't just get involved. Earn your seat at the table. Better yet, earn a seat at the head of the table".

Kind of weak as far as "Gotcha!" stunts go. But A for effort.

 

He will be attending the University of Kentucky where he hopes to study biology and hopes to pursue a degree in medicine.

Best of luck to the kid and kudos for not picking a fish-wrapper degree.

 

"I'm really excited to go to college," Bowling said. "There's more freedom in college and there's also way more places to eat in Lexington."

I think this kid is going to be a bit disappointed. But then again, if he's a prog then he'll probably be delighted.

Was this quote from Obama given during the same speech, where he referred to fellow Americans as "enemies"? You know, the "get in your enemies faces" speech?

And since you seem to be a junkie for anecdotes, I think it was a Mark Dice video on youtube where he's asking college what they feel about Trump and his policies, and responders disliking him and his policies. Then Dice cites Trump's tax plan, but attributing it to Sanders, and all these college kids loved it, then were told it was really Trump's tax plan.

People will judge and accept the message based on the messenger.

It’s the same all over.

Yes, sometimes. I will admit that some of the things Obama said, were things I agree with. What I questioned the sincerity of him saying them. Anyone can recite a well written speech, and talk of how this is the greatest nation that ever existed. That doesn't mean that this person doesn't want to destroy said nation with terrible policies. JFK talked about how lowering taxes helps the economy, and I fully agree, and no matter how much I can't stand the democrat party platform over the years, this is something that no matter who says it, is truth, and has been shown to true over and over when tax cuts are implemented. And he was in IMO the last pro American democrat to hold the office of President.

I'm not going to deny that Obama was an excellent speaker, that same had been said about Hitler. I'm not going to deny that Bill Clinton was the the most skilled "politician" of my life time. I certainly don't mean that he was the best president, I mean he was the best at playing political games. I think the writers of House of Cards based Underwood on Bill Clinton with his manipulative and underhanded methods used, and how he's avoided being held accountable for his actions.

The first time Obama ran for president some of his statements sounded almost Reaganesque.

I didn't vote for him, but I was hopeful before he announced his administration.

Starting with that he disappointed me over and over.

 

Still, some of his quotes/sound bites still sound good.

You just admitted your own reason for posting this article: misinformation and deception. But I'm sure that you and others already knew that.

Already into the glib and cute "Oh, whatever do you mean"? You offered up an example how people can be easily led by the nose. That Trump supporters are blind fanatics who are just as easily embarrassed by a smug 18 year-old George Clooney wannabe. Then you admit that it happens all the time when someone counters with an example of how it works against your side.

So? Of course it happens with both sides. Is that astonishing news?

 

This story came up on my feed and I thought it was funny. I read stories of leftists acting like this all the time but don't get all butt hurt and whiny.

And then begins the double standard, the outrage, the obtuseness and the ever so popular, ' I don't engage in whataboutisms'...

As long as the valedictorian doesn't mention God, he's in the clear. Although Obama is close.

I'm not sure what Trump would have said, but I'm glad he at least didn't say the quote the kid "jokingly" attributed to him. When you really examine the words, you're right about how they reveal a presumptuous sense of entitlement. That is, your mere existence entitles you to YOUR seat at the table. Typical Obama...I'm surprised he didn't call it "YOUR table" instead of "the table", while he was at it. Earning a seat at the table? Obama and his ilk would sooner stretch out on the ground and die as earn anything through work that's actually beneficial to the United States in particular or Western Civilization in general.
