On Saturday, former Republican President Donald Trump took to Truth Social and Instagram to ask his followers to weigh in on an important issue.

Does Trump look like the late King of Rock 'n Roll Elvis Presley?

Democratic President Joe Biden didn't weigh in on Trump's question, but Biden did say Saturday that the 2024 presidential race was "the weirdest campaign I’ve ever been engaged in" and that Trump’s behavior and rhetoric was "even worse" than in 2020.

Trump posted a split photo of himself and Elvis on both social media platforms with the caption:

"For so many years people have been saying that Elvis and I look alike."
"Now this pic has been going all over the place."
"What do you think?"

Trump's reception on Instagram was very different than the fawning adoration he's used to on Truth Social—the platform Trump himself founded.








One individual offered an alternate likeness for Donald Trump.

And, honestly...


On X—once the post migrated there—people were equally concerned, amused, and dismissive of Trump’s latest claim.







Meidas Touch co-founder Ben Meiselas offered a laundry list of reasons for voters to be concerned about Trump.


Trump previously claimed "many people" favorably compare him to George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Nelson Mandela due to his supposed political prowess.

Trump also drew a comparison between himself and Leonardo da Vinci's 16th-century masterpiece, the Mona Lisa.

Speaking on Welsh TV channel S4C in June of 2023, Trump said:

"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."
"You have people that follow the rock bands and they listen to the same songs over and over and over."

After referencing Broadway performances people watch again and again, Trump added:

"It’s basically the same 20 subjects that [I'm] talking about..."
"I can’t just make new things up because I wanna make a speech. I can tell them in different ways and I do sometimes do that—a lot of times."

In a rare moment of self-awareness, even Trump acknowledged he brings nothing new to the campaign in 2024. It's all the same regurgitated White Christian nationalist rhetoric from 2016 and 2020.

"But they just want to hear it again and again."
