Would be great if Elvis Presley could meet Mr Donald Trump and Mrs Hillary Clinton tomorrow morning (Singapore time) when the two presidential candidates converged at Las Vegas for their third and final debate.
Well it all started when Elvis wanted to meet President Nixon cause the King had something he needed from the President? On the red-eye to Washington, Elvis scribbled a letter to President Nixon.
"Sir, I can and will be of any service that I can to help the country out," he wrote. All he wanted in return was a federal agent's badge.
"I would love to meet you," he added. They did and became best of friends. So the proof is the above image 1.
So this morning, he flew all the way, in his private jet, from Washington D.C. to Las Vegas where the great debate was to be held at the University of Nevada. He was lucky again and instead of meeting one, he met two Trumps. It was Elvis' big evening. Imagine meeting two of them at one go. Image 2 shows Elvis with his moon-glasses, trying to take a photo with the two Mr Trump.
When Elvis was asked his feelings after meeting The Donald, he said, "I'd love to change my hairstyle. Be like his. Oooh, man! Must play jackpot. Imagine, instead of getting one trump card I got two. And in Vegas. I'm all shook up."
"Viva Las Vegas!" he shouted. "Now if only I can find Hillary." He managed to catch her outside the dressing room. She was her usual happy mood as Elvis chatted with her (image 3). Henri Gann's good friend and also Elvis' main lead guitarist, Scotty Moore managed to take their picture.
So there you are folks. These are real photographs, taken before the Clinton versus Trump final debate at Las Vegas.
It's a scoop!
I am indebted to Elvis Presley, Scotty Moore and Henri Gann, (Moore's best friend), who wrote this article. Thank you all.
Images: Google. Thanks to the three photographers, without whom this post wouldn't have made it. Please write in if you are the owners of the images so I can credit you all.
Video and Lyrics: Viva Las Vegas sung by Elvis Presley.
This article is written in jest. The idea came about because of the debate venue. Las Vegas has always been associated with Elvis Presley and his hit Viva Las Vegas. The fact that he met Nixon in 1970 started the spin-off in my mind, why not a story about him meeting the 2016 presidential hopefuls.
