And in his first words as our new POTUS, Donald Trump is already drawing upon the inspiration of other cartoonish villains.
Not only did he say "there is no room for prejudice" (ha!) and extoll "national pride" (pretty sure that was a wink to you, Alt-Right!), he also very nearly quoted… Tom Hardy?

Yep, Trump said:
"…we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people."
Which sounded quite similar — though more ominous — than when The Dark Knight Rises villain Bane said:
"We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity. And we give it to you, the people."
Funny, we always thought of Trump as Lex Luthor.
Ch-ch-check out the full transcript of Trump's first speech as POTUS (below)!

Women nationwide are banding together for the anti-Trump protests taking place in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, New York City, and even at the Sundance Film Festival.
Chrissy Teigen is just the latest celebrity joining the Lady Liberty protest, and she's ditching husband John Legend in the process. On Friday, she wrote on Twitter:
It's Inauguration Day, but it's also a day of massive protests! Thank God!!!
Protesters gathered at various security checkpoints near the Capitol in Washington, D.C. Friday morning and afternoon. Police dressed in riot gear (of course) had to provide assistance to inaugural ceremony ticket holders as protesters held up signs and chanted all around them.

The march was called a "Festival of Resistance" by organizers and ran about 1.5 miles to McPherson Square, a park located only three blocks from the White House.
A rally featuring Michael Moore was planned at the park, while the ANSWER coalition set up demonstrations along Trump's parade route.
The DisruptJ20 coalition was one of the main organizers of the protest event, encouraging people to shut down celebrations even if they had to risk arrest.
In fact, lines for ticket holders encompassed several blocks due to protesters causing major traffic at the entrances.
