Bell County high school student and valedictorian Ben Bowling wanted to share some words of wisdom with his graduating class, but there was a twist that no one saw coming. 

"This is the part of my speech where I share some inspirational quotes I found on Google," Bowling said in his speech. "'Don't just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table.' — Donald J. Trump." 

The crowd burst into applause. 

"Just kidding," Bowling said. "That was Barack Obama." 

The 18-year-old valedictorian said the crowd quickly went silent.
