Donald Trump Ain’t Rocky Balboa

The President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, is in great shape for a sexagenarian, and we can almost forgive him for trying to project power by publishing photographs depicting him riding a horse shirtless.

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, is in horrible shape for a septuagenarian, and for a human being of any age. He’s too fat to be able to climb on top of a horse, and if with help he managed to get on top, the pig would probably break the horse’s back. That may be the reason why we’ve been spared the spectacle of a topless Trump riding a mighty steed.

But the stable genius tweeted an image of his head digitally added on to the body of Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa. Why is it that dictators mistake muscle for power?

Will Trump ever understand that braying like a horse, waving his tiny hands and tweeting insults and threats doesn’t portray confidence and power?

Dear Donald, I’ve seen Rocky, in fact I’ve seen all hundred Rocky movies, and you sir are no Rocky Balboa.
