"Was he lying on the bed?" Say what Joe?

Mon Jan 28, 2013 8:54 am

Not trying to make too much of this but, um, I found this rare video on Youtube about Joe Espisito talking to the media just minutes after Elvis had been pronounced dead at the hospital. Listen to what Joe says about HOW and WHERE he found Elvis.

The reason Joe made this false statement about Elvis lying on the bed, was because it was so new to the public on Elvis' death, that he found it may have been inappropriate to tell the media Elvis was found face down in the bathroom carpet with his tongue almost bitten in two. It was just a respectful answer to a question for that time preiod. nothing else..

Esposito is also known to have fabricated other events of the day as well.

Perhaps he also suspected the truth would haunt the man's memory for the rest of time.. Thankfully that didn't happen, nobody dwells on it, and the media don't make fun of him at all for it..
His heart was certainly in the right place.

Exactly Joe was just looking out for Elvis' memory here and was being respectful nothing more IMO!

While this video is not rare and is very well known here, it's obvious the shock of Elvis' death hasn't even set in yet with Joe and Charlie.
Joe's comment here is possibly one of the most selfless acts that Joe has been known for since Elvis' passing.

Stop it.

Joe didn't look THAT bad at the end.
