If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many is this Meal, Ready-to-Eat silhouette? 

The answer? A yuge amount. 

Yes, the photo that graces this MRE and others appears to have President Donald Trump sitting opposite Kanye West, or just Ye to his most ardent followers between a stack of rifles. 
The double-take inducing image was first noted by a Reddit user where the image will live forever as a hilarious addition to the Trump-Kanye zeitgeist. 

“MRE package design looks like Trump and Kanye sitting around a campfire,” Reddit user Terarnian said Saturday on the r/AirForce subreddit. 

“Good mercy, you’re right!,” added UserTPG913.

Military Times’ JD Simkins first reported the photo and Reddit post. 

The likeness of the two gentlemen is less of a Jesus in toast moment, and probably more based on the fact that the two have grown an unlikely friendship. 

The dynamic duo made headlines when they met inside the Oval Office last October when Kanye proudly donned a “Make America Great Again” red hat. 
Surrounded by an army of reporters, the two sat directly across from one another in a stunning moment of presidential history. 

“…I think it’s the bravery that helps you beat this game called life,” said Kanye. “You know they tried to scare me to not wear this hat.” 

He added that it “gives me power in a way.”
