One of the excuses I’ve seen for reporters who brachiate from one right-wing fabricated attack on Democrats to the next is that they are too ignorant and lazy to do anything except chase the latest shiny thing. However, that excuse requires an artificially narrow definition of shiny thing.
At any rate, a 77 year old presidential candidate asking if he looks like a man in his 20s should be extremely shiny. Especially given all the apparent journalistic concern about the age and mental competence of presidents.
Donald Trump straw-polled supporters on Truth Social this weekend over his apparent likeness to the King of Rock and Roll.
Amid preparations for the Nevada Republican caucus next week, the former president took time to ask followers on the social media platform for their thoughts on his similarity to Elvis Presley. The former president shared an image comprising half of Elvis’ face lined up with half of his own.
“For so many years people have been saying that Elvis and I look alike,” Mr Trump posted on Saturday. “Now this pic has been going all over the place. What do you think?”
I think that post-mortem and pre-undertakers they were almost dead ringers. But Presley looked better.
Update: Some of you all skipped the bit where I said Dump compared himself to a man in his 20s. Here’s the picture he’s using to show the similarities.
Thanks to commentariati Stuart for mentioning this.
