Donald Trump has said "when I was growing up, they said I looked like Elvis." And the reaction on Twitter, as you can guess, is glorious.

The enigma that is Donald J. Trump hates being in the limelight; he shies away from the camera at every opportunity he can. If only.

Trump was at one of his rallies in Tupelo, Mississippi recently, where he made the revelation that people said he looked like Elvis Presley when he was younger. He started by saying, "I shouldn't say this. You'll say I'm very conceited, 'cause I'm not."

Trump continued, "But other than the blond hair, when I was growing up, they said I looked like Elvis. Do you see that, can you believe it? I always consider that a great compliment." *mic drop*

Tupelo, Mississippi is the birthplace of Elvis, who was born there in 1935. The revolutionary rock and roll singer died aged 42 in 1977, in Memphis, Tennessee. 

Trump's claim hasn't gone down very well on Twitter, as you can imagine. People have not been kind to The US President, to say the least.

"Identical twins."

The comment made people laugh (a lot).

If you look below, you will see an example of a sick burn.

He thinks he looks like Elvis, obviously.

Comparing facts.


Here's a side-by-side comparison.


Leslie Jones doesn't get it either.

Checkmate.

The US President has recently been called out by Lady Gaga to show more "compassion" to the victims of the Californian fires; Rihanna has also wished he would not use her music at his "tragic" rallies.
