MAGA Las Vegas! Donald Trump-loving Elvis impersonator delights crowds during the president’s Sin City meeting
Donald Trump held his third rally in a row at the Las Vegas Convention Center on Friday – with a Trump-loving impersonator to keep the crowd busy before the president spoke.
The president’s fans stood outside for hours – and in some cases since Thursday – in a relatively cold winter to wait for the relatively rare appearance in a red state.
They were not only entertained by Trump Elvis – real name Jeff Stanulis, with an Elvis-themed Donald Trump doll – but also by an impersonator of Kim Jong Un who shouted to waiting fans that the president is a “big dictator” while he an inflatable bit sways rocket.
Elvis brought the building in and continued the show outside the main hall of the convention center, but Kim did not.
The Nevada stop was part of a rare four-day campaign swing through the west coast.
During the trip, the president held a fundraising campaign in California, participated in a graduation ceremony for prisoners, and held a Phoenix rally on Wednesday, a Colorado Rally on Thursday and a Las Vegas Convention Center on Wednesday.
The rally was held on the eve of the Nevada caucuses, only the third Democratic primary competition in the nation.
The president continued his momentum from his previous two rallies, scolded potential general election competitors, and slammed Democrats and cultural war enemies on countless issues – including the Academy Awards that donate Best Picture Oscar to South Korean film “Parasite.”

While the location of the rally location was more unconventional for the president, improvised birds were brought into an open space in a hall of a convention center instead of a sports or entertainment venue with a stadium full of seats and grandstands.
Most of the area was only standing room and many attendees gathered around and behind the press pen in an overflow area.
Trump lost Nevada in 2016 with 45.5 percent of the vote against 47.9 percent of Hillary Clinton.
However, the only two provinces that turned blue were those that included Las Vegas and Reno, the largest cities in the state.
The president is trying to get those few percentage points to reach the six Nevada election colleges in November.
Democrats also compete for state support while continuing to campaign until the caucuses Saturday.
Many of the eight remaining candidates came for the debate on Wednesday and stayed through the weekend.
Some candidates mainly try to regain their energy in the state after less than satisfactory performance in the first two early primary competitive states.
Joe Biden, who remained the national front runner during the primary campaign, ran away from Iowa in fourth place and came in shocking fifth place in New Hampshire.
Moderated Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar performed surprisingly well in the two states.
But both Iowa and New Hampshire are more than 90 percent white and some candidates, such as Joe Biden, claim that they will do better in more diverse states such as Nevada and South Carolina – the second primary election state, where voters cast their vote Saturday.
Although Trump is not facing major primary challenges, he has touted his victories in Iowa and New Hamsphire, especially after Democrats struggled to achieve the Iowa results after an app malfunction intended to report the results.
