Fallon finds similarities between Trump, ‘Legally Blonde’ commencement speeches


“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon on Monday aired a video comparing President Trump’s recent commencement speech at Liberty University to the climactic graduation speech in the movie “Legally Blonde.” 

“Tonight: Trump plagiarized his commencement speech from Elle Woods in Legally Blonde,” the show wrote on its Twitter account, including a mash-up of the two speeches.

In his speech to Liberty University, his first commencement address as president, Trump spoke of faith and its role throughout American history.

Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, praised the address, telling Fox News over the weekend that it was the “best commencement speech Liberty has ever had.”
