We all know that former president Obama had a soft spot for comics, and even mentioned them a few times during his preidency. well it turns out thet President Trump and his chiefspeech writer Steve Bannon also like comics, because they quoted Bane from The Dark Knight Rises in Trump’s inaugural seech. Pretty cool, huh?
In the film Bane, portrayed by Tom Hardy, lifts himself up by the bootstraps from an impoverished, incarcerated childhood to lead a revolt of freedom seekers against Gotham City’s power structure, all while having a permanent disability and wearing an aid that allows his speech to be muffled.
