President Donald Trump gave his first commencement speech as commander in chief over the weekend and he ended up getting lampooned for it by “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon. On Monday, Fallon pointed out a number of similarities between the president’s address at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, and that of Reese Witherspoon’s character Elle Woods in the 2001 movie “Legally Blonde.”

“I was watching Trump’s commencement speech and it sounded kinda familiar,” Fallon told his studio audience. “I think it kinda sounded like Elle Woods’ speech from ‘Legally Blonde.’” That really got the crowd going.

The Tonight Show” host then played a side-by-side comparison of both speeches, and yes, they do sound similar. Check it out below.

Trump and Woods use many of the same key words and phases, such as “into the world,” “passion,” and “courage of conviction.” But where the movie character proclaims, “we did it,” Trump says, “I did it.”

Prior to the edited video, Fallon quoted Trump by saying, “Always have the courage to be yourself and chase your dreams,” to which he added: “And then he stopped talking because he ran out of fortune cookies.” Fallon also reiterated how Trump told the graduating class that there are more jobs available than ever before. “Yeah, because you keep firing everyone,” he added.

Jerry Falwell founded Liberty University in 1971. His son, Jerry Falwell, Jr., who was one of Trump’s earliest supporters, currently runs the private, non-profit Christian university, which teaches Creation Studies. Falwell also expressed his belief, in 1999, that the purple Teletubby, Tiny Winky, was gay.
