ESPN acknowledged the 34th anniversary of Rocky IV with an epic tweet Wednesday, highlighting the historic knockout of Ivan Drago.
The message was followed by a presidential tweet that included a photoshopped image with Donald Trump's head on the body of Sylvester Stallone from the 1985 film.
Twitter did not hesitate to respond to the President's wishful physique, with users taking time throughout the day to clown the president's seemingly pointless tweet.
Notice he didn't use the poster for Rocky IV where he beats the Russians, but rather the one where he beats the black guy from Chicago. https://t.co/mADwdzY5Ru— Derp Dig-in-it’s-Thanksgiving-ler (@DiglerDerp) November 27, 2019
We have a President who photoshops his face onto Rocky... Just think about that... We have a President who photoshops his face on the image of a fictional character... He isn’t writing policies, he isn’t handing out turkeys... He’s spending his time doin shit your lil nephew does— Cyrus McQueen (@CyrusMMcQueen) November 27, 2019
On top of all the other weirdness here, does the President realize that Rocky actually stood up to Moscow? https://t.co/v3JJdip0SF— Raja Krishnamoorthi (@CongressmanRaja) November 27, 2019

Adam writes that “The Rocky films are a product of a sense of white pride and humiliation, and the desire to overcome it by restoring the proper order of things.”— b-boy bouiebaisse (@jbouie) November 27, 2019
You can say exactly the same for Trump himself. (end thread)

The president has yet to respond to any of the criticism or give a reason as to why he decided to acknowledge the release of this film over the hundreds of other film anniversaries that have occurred this year. Who knows? At least we got a laugh or two in!
