Ben Bowling, the valecditorian of Bell County High School in Kentucky, read a quote he told the crowd was from Trump.
Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.
The crowd cheered raucously. Until he told them it was actually an Obama quote. Then all went silent. Someone booed. And a few laughed at the irony.
The quote comes from a speech that Obama gave to Barnard College grads in 2012 when he was encouraging the graduating women to fight for equality.
