Kentucky Valedictorian Tricks Audience With Trump Quote – Just Kidding, It’s Obama

The school year has wrapped up almost everywhere in the Bluegrass State, and naturally, outgoing seniors enjoy taking the opportunity to say one final goodbye to the high schools they’ve called home for the past 4 years.

Enter Bell County’s Ben Bowling, the valedictorian of Bell County High School’s Class of 2018, who had his own unique way to bid adieu to his classmates and their families. And it’s going viral.

“This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google,” Bowling said in his valedictorian 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 audience erupted in cheers, until Bowling sealed the punch line.

“Just kidding! That was Barack Obama.” Check out the video below via The Courier-Journal:

Maybe Bowling has a career as a future comedian?
