During a Monday rally in Elvis’ birthplace ― Tupelo, Mississippi ― the president compared himself to the rock icon.
“You’ll say I’m very conceited,” Trump said, according to CNN. “Other than the blond hair, when I was growing up they said I look like Elvis.”
Trump also reminded the crowd that he had posthumously awarded Elvis the Presidential Medal of Freedom earlier this month.
The idea that Trump might link himself to the legendary singer left many Twitter users, in the words of the Presley hit, “All Shook Up.”

At his low-attendance rally in Tupelo, Mississippi, Donald Trump said that people thought he looked like Elvis when he was younger
This is obviously yet another of his narcissistic lies, but he actually does resemble 1970's Elvis a little bit pic.twitter.com/amzgOcoHIh

Unlike Elvis, Trump wouldn't dream of shooting his beloved TV.

To be fair to Trump, he’s not the first one to see a connection between himself and Elvis.
