Trump Legit Stole Elle Woods’ Speech From Legally Blonde
Every day we write a piece on something stupid Trump has done. Every. God. Damn. Day.
Are we writing about his new legislation?
No.Are we writing about how he’s developing US relations with the Middle East? No.
How about how he’s tackling the education disparity issue in downtown Chicago? No. No we’re not.We’re writing about how the actual president of the actual United States ripped a speech from a 90s teen film. Because postmodernity has gone haywire and we are now living in a world where the real and the unreal constantly merge; where we exist in a hyperreality of repetition and blurred edges. Pop cultural signifiers and figures have become mainstream political culture, reducing that space between what is fiction and what is life. Just as Baudrillard writes, “The real is not only what can be reproduced, but that which is already reproduced, the hyper-real.”
So anyway, Trump copied a speech from Elle Woods’ character in Legally Blonde.

We don’t know whether Trump’s speech-writers have just watched Legally Blonde on repeat so much that the film’s dialogue has merged seamlessly with their internal monologue, or they’re just lazy, but this is ridiculous.
