Trump posts his photo-shopped face on Rocky Balboa’s body
Los Angeles: US President Donald Trump has photo-shopped the image of his face, superimposing it on top of the body of the fictional Rocky Balboa from the Hollywood movie directed by and starring Sylvester Stallone.
Trump had tweeted the doctored image on Wednesday.
While the photo-shopped image has no caption, it came on the 34th anniversary of “Rocky IV,” which ESPN noted in a tweet shortly before Trump sent out the image, reports variety.com.
The Rocky-inspired tweet was released while the US Commander-in-Chief was reportedly playing golf.
Twitterti, naturally, had a field day.
Comedian Josh Comers tweeted: “Sorry, but Rocky beat the Russian,” alluding to the allegations of collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government.
Author and pundit Molly Jong-Fast wrote: “I do not think this is an accurate portrayal,” and Media Matters for America editor-at-large Parker Molloy mocked Trump’s tweet by transforming the image into a clip of the President licking his lips in satisfaction.
