Trumpistas are so easily pawned and...


via Daily Kos:

"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 percent for Donald Trump. The moment during the valedictory speech was briefly captured on video and no joke, when he revealed it was actually an Obama quote, some in the crowd started booing."

That's funny and sad all at once. Thanks for the story, though. Maybe he should get out of Kentucky and not look back.
