The general and the cardinal: Separated at birth?

18 Nov

AVE MARIA, Florida (November 18, 2016) — In scanning the news this morning, I noticed that President-elect Donald Trump has asked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Army, Retired), 57, to be his national security adviser. I also took note that Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich, 67, will receive his red hat from Pope Francis this weekend. It’s a monumental weekend for both men.

And I couldn’t help but notice that from a certain angle they look very much alike. A Google search for them pulled up zero mentions that they are brothers or perhaps twins separated at birth. The cardinal-elect should be flattered. He’s a full decade older than the general. Further, no one else has pointed out the striking similarity. Your thoughts?
