Many netizens are now having a hard time trying to unsee the uncanny resemblance of Indonesian President Joko Widodo to former United States President Barrack Obama – it’s like they are clones.
Reddit user badcompanygg recently shared a portrait of Widodo on the platform with the caption stating that he looks like the “Asian Obama.”
After going viral on the social media platform with over 57,000 upvotes and over 1,000 comments, some users couldn’t help but compare the two political figures when someone threw a picture of the former U.S. president into the mix.
A lot of people are having trouble erasing this in their mind.
