Trump tweets photo of himself as muscle-bound boxer
It's an image taken from the publicity poster for the Sylvester Stallone movie "Rocky III."
Days after causing alarm with an unscheduled trip to the hospital, President Donald Trump tweeted a photo-shopped image of himself Wednesday as a rippling, bare-chested boxer.
The president is furious over media speculation following his sudden trip to a government hospital outside Washington last Saturday and the startling tweet was his latest attempt to put talk of ill health to rest.
In the picture, Trump's head is superimposed on the hulking body of a boxer -- an image taken from the publicity poster for the Sylvester Stallone movie "Rocky III."
The montage, in which a distinctly airbrushed version of the 73-year-old president's face is used, comes without comment.
Not that the Republican real estate tycoon is shy on the subject. He rarely misses a chance to talk up his own physical prowess and often makes unscripted comments -- flattering or derogatory -- about the physique of other men, often to their face during official events.
On Tuesday, while giving a reelection campaign speech in Florida, Trump fumed at length in a bizarre rant about his recent hospital visit.
He claimed, wrongly, that major media outlets were reporting he'd had a "massive" heart attack when he was taken, without prior notice, to the Walter Reed military hospital.
In fact, most media questioned the unusual circumstances of the visit, which would usually have been flagged in advance. The White House said afterward that Trump had simply decided to do part of his annual physical exam early, in order to save time later.
According to his last medical exam, in February, Trump is technically obese but in good health. He rarely exercises, other than playing golf -- as he did at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on Wednesday.
