Bill Bowling, the valedictorian at Bell County High School in Louisville, Kentucky, recently tricked his pro-Trump classmates into cheering for former President Barack Obama.
During his graduation speech, Bowling said:
This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google. “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 began to applaud Trump, who has tried to cut education by billions, but Bowling added:
Just kidding. That was Barack Obama.
Bowling recalled tricking his classmates to USA TODAY:
The crowd erupted in applause and before they could even finish clapping I said I was kidding and the applause quickly died…
Most people wouldn’t like it if I used it, so thought I’d use Donald Trump’s name. It is southeastern Kentucky after all.
