The former President Donald Trump shocked everyone over the weekend when he took to his Truth Social platform to ask if he looks like the late singer Elvis Presley.
Trump Compares Himself To Elvis
Daily Mail reported that Trump posted a photo that showed his and Elvis’ faces melded together to form a single visage.
“For so many years people have been saying that Elvis and I look alike,” Trump wrote. “Now this pic has been going all over the place. What do you think?”
Social media users were quick to respond to Trump’s post, which immediately went viral.
“Have you ever seen trump and Elvis in the same place at the same time?” one user questioned, with another adding, “This is the kind of sh*tposting I want to see from my president.”
“Elvis would vote Trump,” a third user wrote. A fourth person added, “Like if Trump will be President again.”
Others, however, took this opportunity to attack Trump.
“Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental health condition in which people have an unreasonably high sense of their own importance,” one person wrote.
“They need and seek too much attention and want people to admire them,” the user added. “People with this disorder may lack the ability to understand or care about the feelings of others,’ the not-so-veiled commentary continued. But behind this mask of extreme confidence, they are not sure of their self-worth and are easily upset by the slightest criticism.”
“Donald Trump clearly has dementia,” claimed Democratic strategist Johnny Palmadessa. “He has forgotten time and again that Barack Obama isn’t still the president. He thinks Nikki Haley was Speaker of the House instead of Nancy Pelosi.”
“He says he’s ‘winning’ his New York fraud trial, but the trial is over,” he continued, despite the verdict in that case not being released. “[Trump] just compared himself to Elvis because he believes they ‘look alike’ – [he] needs to drop out of the race. He needs to seek help.”
Trump previously compared himself to Elvis during an event in the late singer’s hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi.
“I shouldn’t say this, you’ll say I’m very conceited, cause I’m not,” Trump said. “But other than the blonde hair, when I was growing up, they said I look like Elvis.”
Last year, Trump compared himself to Leonardo Da Vici’s 16th century masterpiece The Mona Lisa.
“You have people that go to the Mona Lisa – they love the Mona Lisa and they’ll see it hundreds and hundreds of times and it gets better each time,” Trump said.
This comes as President Joe Biden is trying to call out Trump’s alleged erratic behavior.
“I’m feeling good about where we are, I really am,” Biden said during a speech in Delaware on Saturday, according to The Hill. “You know, folks are starting to focus in and the guy we’re running against, he is — he’s not for anything, he’s against everything.”
“And no, I mean it, it’s the weirdest campaign I’ve ever been engaged in, it’s even worse in terms of his behavior than the last time in 2020,” he added.
