Trump Draws Laughter After Tweeting Photo of His Head Photoshopped Onto Rocky Balboa’s Body

President Donald Trump decided to celebrate the day before Thanksgiving with one of the most bizarre tweets of his presidency: a photoshopped image of Trump’s face atop the muscular body of fictional boxing champion Rocky Balboa.

The president offered the image — which is taken from the promotional poster for Rocky III — with no caption.

Check out the photo below:

Unsurprisingly, the photo garnered widespread laughter and ridicule online.

Former President Barack Obama speechwriter and current Pod Save America host Jon Favreau joked, “There goes the president, posting shirtless fanfic of himself again.”

And MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell wrote: “Now we know what they did to him at that mysterious doctor’s visit.”

2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders staffer Sara Kenigsberg offered one of the better re-interpretations of the image. Kenigsberg put the image side-by-side with a photoshopped image of Sanders in the octagon, walking away from another fighter with Trump’s face photoshopped onto the body. The referee in Kenigsberg’s image is Mike Pence.

There’s really no explanation for why the president decided to tweet an image of his face photoshopped onto the body of Rocky Balboa but Daily Beast contributor Justin Baragona noted that, during a rally on Tuesday night, Trump mentioned his recent visit to Walter Reed and that they asked him to take off his shirt during his exam.

Trump told the crowd, “It’s true I didn’t wear a tie, why would I wear a tie?” And mimicked the doctors, riffing, “Show us that gorgeous chest, we want to see it. We’ve never seen a chest quite like it.”

Of course, the president’s visit to Walter Reed was widely speculated upon. The White House claimed that it was just the first stage of his annual physical but since it wasn’t on the public schedule, there were a lot of suggestions that Trump made the trip because of health reasons.

What do you think?

I am still confused.

What is your Plan B if things DON’T work out as planned, hmmm?

There are no guarantees in our politics, so I am still interested in knowing what Cult-45ers will do without His Royal Highness on the throne. The best that I have heard is a bit of bravado and that’s it.

“I just wonder how many prog/left/lib/dims heads EXPLODED when this was posted?” banstan

Why? I wouldn’t want to have any heads explode because they saw a fake picture. All of the people I know who saw it chuckled and let it go knowing what a tool he is.

I think he looks much better. If that’s what they did at Walter Reed I’m all for it.

Sabo did it best by putting Ted Cruz’s mug on a tattooed and muscled thugs body.
