Yeah, many people are already saying that.

Dude is delusional as FUCK.

Elvis, in his heyday - full face shot, not a freakin’ profile or 3/4 view:

45 in his heyday:

Even if you go all the way back to his teen/young adult years, when 45 arguably looked “his best”:

NOPE.


#3

Maybe?


#4

More proof that Trump is utterly incapable of opining on literally any subject without making it about himself.


#5

I was thinking, maybe when Elvis was bloated and all drugged out, right before the end… but even then he’s still more physically attractive than 45 was, in his very “prime.”

O_O

Yeah. There are no photos of Trump I do not kinda want to punch.

But man. Elvis was pretty.


#7

He looks like the three foot turd Elvis left in the bowl when he died.


#8

Obligs, especially since I just rewatched it over the weekend:

IFE

I’m pretty damn sure ‘Clarence Worley’ would vehemently disagree about any alleged similarity in appearance…


#9

He does (did), minus all the talent and charm.


#10

Of course he does. If you put the wax statue of Elvis in the microwave.


#11

I don’t know- I can kinda see the resemblance…


#12

My mom agrees with that (to the annoyance of my father), but – then again – she was just as open about Charles Bronson and (Mets rightfielder) Ron Swoboda.


#13

Ain’t nobody want to see that shake his hips.


#14

I’m sorry, but this does NOT look like Elvis.

Here’s what might brighten up this thread…

… or maybe I just like this song.


#16

Not even.

Thin, rubbery lips vs full lips (for White folks, anyway.)

Hooded, shifty eyes vs ‘bedroom’ baby blues.

An early double chin vs a strong jawline (until the drugs took their toll…)

The only even remote similarity I see as an artist is in the shape of the nose, from the frontal view.


#17

They’ve both got their mouths hanging open.

Are they codfish?


#18

That’s the most disgusting thing I’ve heard in a long time… but it’s only fitting since it’s about Trump. So, okay.


#19

I’m guessing he meant Elvis Schmiedekamp, former Cal Fed Vice President of Customer Relations.

I won’t decide until I hear him singing “Jailhouse Rock” with the Paul Manafort Band.
