Jimmy Fallon has drawn attention to some similarities between President Trump's latest speech and those given by the character of Elle Woods in the Legally Blonde movies.

On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, the host's monologue included a video splicing similar statements from Trump and Elle together.

 

In the comedy films Elle is a seemingly ditsy blonde who attempts to win back her ex boyfriend by getting a law degree.  She's played by Reece Witherspoon.

Fallon said that while watching the President's commencement speech at Liberty University it sounded "kind of familiar" although he added that the similarities must be "coincidence".
