We know that Donald Trump lives in an alternate universe of his own making. Still, some things fall the edge of his flat-earth thinking. This is one of them.
Remember the series of Rocky movies, where people had learn how to speak “mumble” before they could understand the star Sylvester Mallone? Well, it appears that POTUS is fond of them, too.
Who could imagine that this is what the commander-in-chief sees when he looks into the presidential bathroom mirror?
In a bizarre moment on Tuesday evening, Trump told his followers at a Florida campaign rally that his doctor told him during a physical exam that he had a “gorgeous chest.” The crowd stopped for a moment not quite certain how to react. The commander-in-chief told them his doctor also said, according to The Independent:
“Take off your shirt, sir, and show us that gorgeous chest. We’ve never seen a chest quite like it.’
Then, the man who would be king with a “gorgeous chest” posted a tweet of his face cut and pasted onto Stallone’s body in a boxer’s stance. No words. No, literally there were no words attached to the tweet.
Trump may be the only president to grow an inch while he was in office and hypnotize his physician into dropping his weight like a rock to 239 pounds with a BMI of 29.9.
This Rocky III look sort of alike picture is not unlike other “Trump Balboa” shirt designs in a “patriotic” ‘apparel company. Some even say “Yo, Hillary!” Others have Trump in front of an American flag carrying a machine gun. Nice.
Longtime MSNBC News anchor Andrea Mitchell tweeted:
‘Now we know what they did to him at that mysterious doctor’s visit?’
Stallone has been invited to the White House to meet with the president. He was trying to get the heavyweight boxer Jack Johnson pardoned posthumously. Johnson was convicted of taking a woman across a state line “for immoral purposes” in after the turn of the 20th century.
The president will be spending the holiday at Mar-a-Lago and golfing at his Trump International Golf Club.
