U.S. Sen. Chris Coons, D-Delawre, has a prominent doppelgänger thanks to his uncanny resemblance to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

Coons, a frequent guest on Sunday morning news talk shows, met up with the chancellor and posed for a selfie. The two men’s heights are also on the shorter side, with Scholz listed at 5 feet, seven inches.

Coons serves on subcommittees of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Committee assignments also include business.

Coons posted the photo on the X (formerly Twitter) site.

Over the years, doppelgänger, the German word for someone who resembles another closely, has entered everyday usage.
