No it wasnt.

On Monday, June 13th 1977, Elvis put in a call to President Jimmy Carter to try and help out George Klein in a federal court case.

Then the next day Tuesday, June 14th 1977, President Carter returns the call at 5:18 pm but reluctantly gived up after about ten minutes when he could not understand Elvis' rambling, incoherent conversation. Elvis placed another call Wednesday morning, but the President chose not to take it.

This is exactly how I heard it went down.

Thats pretty sad The President had to give up when he couldn't understand Elvis' speech due to his medication obviously causing it.

Where does this information come from? How do we know it's true? Can anyone prove this phone call happened?

The information comes from Mr. Ernst Jorgenson and Peter Guralnick in their book Elvis Day By Day. Check it out, its worth the purchase.

It is also on record in President Carter's White House files, more importantly.
