Fallon finds similarities between Trump, 'Legally Blonde' commencement speeches

Jimmy Fallon pointed out some striking comparisons between President Trump's Liberty University commencement speech and the speech Reese Witherspoon's character Elle Woods in "Legally Blonde" recited during her graduation.

After some references to the many firings and resignations in Trump's administration since his inauguration, Fallon said that while watching the commencement speech, it sounded "kind of familiar".

"We take our next steps into the world", she says to the Harvard Law graduating class.

Is Donald Trump now taking his inspiration from Elle Woods?

Fallon, visibly confused said, "What is going on?" "It's probably just a coincidence". But Donald Trump simply says, "I did it". "Whoever wrote that, that's fantastic!"

PM greets new South Korean President
Ties between South Korea and China, who are important trade partners, have been strained by Seoul's decision to host a U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) anti-missile system in response to a growing missile threat from North Korea.

"(Trump) said, 'Always have the courage to be yourself and chase your dreams, '" Fallon said.

However, it would be unfair to claim that Trump's speech is plagiarized since the themes mentioned in both addresses are pretty common for graduates to hear on their big day.

Fallon didn't stop there. He played a clip of Woods' speech cut with clips of Trump's speech in which Trump appeared to be saying nearly exactly the same words as Woods, though likely in a different order.

And of course Trump had to mention the high volume of jobs created since he became President.

However, there's one key difference between the two speeches, in the way that they end.
