I wondered if the faculty was briefed on his speech beforehand. Probably. My guess is the mischievious student left certain parts out until graduation day.

His speech will be remembered by the Bell County H.S. class of 18 for a lifetime.

It proves the point very well: Anything Trump says is good. When they find out he didn't say it . . . oops! Serves them right. Nice going, kiddo, you have a great future and go for it!!


Very much like liddle donnie - can only dish out that kind of stuff, but can't take it...

This kid will have his own late night talk show eventually.

 

I almost peed my pants when I read what he did.

I saw that. I was both laughing and crying at the same time.

Valedictorian Quotes Trump, But...

Message 7 of 7

Valedictorian Ben Bowling of Bell County High School’s class of 2018 in Kentucky delivered a memorable speech and also made national headlines.

“This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google,” Bowling said in his graduation 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.”


As video of his speech confirms, the audience went wild for his line, bursting into applause.
But he had a follow-up zinger. “Just kidding,” he said, even as the audience continues cheering.
“That was Barack Obama.”

 

The auditorium became noticeably subdued.

 

“I just thought it was a really good quote,” Bowling told local news after the fact. (And yes, he confirmed to TIME that he really did come across it via Google.) “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.”


“I expected the applause for sure, but wasn’t sure what to expect when I revealed the real quote,” Bowling explained to TIME. “I knew my classmates would find it funny, but wasn’t sure about the audience. It was all in good fun.”
