President Donald Trump tweeted an image on Wednesday morning of his own head on top of Sylvester Stalone’s body when he played Rocky Balboa.
The strange (but funny) image of President Trump on Stallone’s body followed his Tuesday night rally in Florida where Trump said hospital doctors complimented his chest.
President Trump was speaking to his supporters during the rally when he began discussing his controversial, unscheduled visit to Walter Reed Medical Center for “phase one” of his routine checkup.
There had been a spin amongst some media organizations that the fact that Donald Trump didn’t wear a tie for the visit meant he was trying to cover up a massive heart attack. Trump told the crowd,
“They said, he wasn’t wearing a tie. Which is pretty unusual for me honestly. I should have wore the tie. Maybe it wasn’t their fault. They never apologize. They said he wasn’t wearing a tie. This is a sign of a massive heart attack. Nothing happened.”
Trump continued, “The first thing they do is say, ‘Take off your shirt, sir, and show us that gorgeous chest. So we want to see. We’ve never seen a chest quite like it.’ No but seriously.”
President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., trolled the Washington Post over the image after they tweeted, “Trump tweets doctored photo of his head on Sylvester Stallone’s body, unclear why.” Don Jr responded:
“I’ve heard from reliable sources that it is not doctored.”
Trump Jr.’s comment is most likely a mockery of a large amount of undisclosed sources that have been used by the media for information to attack President Trump. Much of this information, especially the most inflammatory ones, have later been proven false.
White House doctors shot down speculation about Donald Trump’s health, saying in an official statement, “Despite some of the speculation, the president has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues. Specifically, he did not undergo any specialized cardiac or neurological evaluations.”
