People are used to seeing Donald Trump’s face transposed on to a lot of things: satsumas, the Queen, a giant floating baby flying across the US and the UK.
But this morning, the president himself posted a photo where his head was photoshopped on to something utterly surprising: the super-buff, bare body of the fictional boxer Rocky Balboa.
It was tweeted at 10.54am, with Trump offering exactly zero explanation – not even a caption. All we know is that the tweet was sent during a golf trip at one of Trump’s golf clubs in Florida, during his Thanksgiving holiday at Mar-a-Lago.
Who knows how we should interpret it? Perhaps the 45th president suffered a blow to the head this morning. Or perhaps he wants us to know he’s a fighter. Maybe he’s upset about of all the low blows thrown his way during his tenure, with people saying mean things like “why does he grab women by the pussy?”

Is Rocky going to display his bulging bone spurs?

In his dreams will he ever have a body like that.

We all know he is a world-class narcissistic … he is setting a new standard for extreme narcissism. 🙂
They are called 'human' rights not "if politicians do not feel threatened" rights. Many politicians see national sovereignty/security as more important because they protect their power and wealth. Human rights often do just the opposite.
National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not resolved with more national sovereignty.

Presidential Pornography? This guy has lower self esteem than a pubescent 10 yr. old.

When I was 12 years old I was wild about “The Man from UNCLE” and for a few months I fancied that I’d join the CIA when I grew up. I wanted to be a bad-assed CIA agent. (Ugh) This is what trump’s about…a juvenile, wishing he was a tough guy.
How fucking embarrassing for his kids and his long-suffering wife.

I thought you meant the squirrel (Rocky and Bullwinkle). Just dated myself.
To be fair to trump, I think he has enough skin to carpet a boxing ring.

The world’s greatest troll! And everybody’s still not talking about all his absolutely awful policies, especially the media.
All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

Oh it’s just more narcissistic jackassery. I’m grateful that he hasn’t photoshopped his head onto a crucified Jesus. I assume that’ll come if he’s impeached.
I feel much better since I gave up hope.

The really scary thing is, this lunatic fascist madman has scores of millions of dedicated, hate and violence driven sycophantic followers who love and worship him, and will do anything he asks of them.
Among them are SCOTUS, many federal and state officials, and a probable majority of religious leaders in the US.

The truth is, there’s no such thing as being “anti-Fascist.” Either you are a decent human being with a conscience, or you are a fascist.
