President Donald Trump’s campaign fired back at The Washington Post for reporting the president is not actually Rocky Balboa, blasting the report for the lack of “evidence.”
The stunning attack came after the president posted a photoshopped a picture of his face on the body of actor Sylvester Stallone’s body from the movie Rocky III.
“Trump tweets doctored photo of his head on Sylvester Stallone’s body, unclear why,” The newspaper tweeted. The Trump campaign fired back with a bizarre claim.
“Washington Post claims – without evidence – that [Trump] shared a ‘doctored’ photo,” the campaign wrote.

So you’re claiming that Trump actually has Sylvester Stone’s body from Rocky III?
Did they attach his head at Walter Reed?

This is the thing with authoritarian regimes and their loyalists. They gaslight so much and forget to take into consideration that people have eyes and ears.

I would like to remind everyone that one of the articles of impeachment against Andrew Johnson in 1868 was just for generally 'bringing dishonor and ridicule upon the office of the president" https://t.co/GiMgtsOCrP
