Trump Campaign Claims Photo Trump Tweeted as Rocky is NOT Doctored
The Trump Campaign has re-ignited the buzz around an image of Donald Trump’s head pasted onto Sylvester Stallone’s body, claiming there’s “no proof” it was doctored.
Donald Trump was mocked around the world for tweeting a depiction of himself as the film character Rocky Balboa but on Wednesday, the official Twitter account for his bid to stay in the White House in the 2020 Elections hit back.
Here, is case you forgot:

The photo was obviously debunked, because 1) we all know that Trump doesn’t look like that, and 2) that is obviously the movie poster from the movie Rocky III.
Trump shared it Wednesday as he bragged that doctors’ praised his physique during his unannounced physical last weekend.
“The first thing they do is say, “Take off your shirt, sir, and show us that gorgeous chest. So we want to see. We’ve never seen a chest quite like it.” No but seriously,” he told a Florida campaign rally.
So everyone was pretty surprised when the Trump campaign tweeted this:

Putting focus on the term “doctored” possibly alluded specifically to the intention behind the snap, as most people familiar with Trump would be fully aware it does not resemble his frame in real life.
They may have taken issue with the term “doctored” often having connotations of intent to deceive, while it more generally means to falsify.
Either way, social media users fumed that they were not buying it.
Team Trump is demanding to see some hard evidence that the picture Donald Trump shared that showed his head on Sylvester Stone's body in "Rocky III" is, in fact, a doctored image.
No, seriously. https://t.co/9Gfz9sEg1M

MAGA morons appear to claim Trump's "Rocky Balboa" photo is real. Silly MAGAs. https://t.co/P4U65UXed9

It is Sylvester Stallone's body from Rocky.
It is an air-brushed and photoshopped head of Trump.
They are photoshopped together, therefore it is indeed a "doctored" photo.
Be less craven. https://t.co/Nq6F04ViZz

The official Trump campaign account, which is the OFFICIAL account of the CAMPAIGN just to make that clear, suggests that the picture of Dear Leader as muscular boxer is, in fact, not doctored but a real photograph of Dear Leader. https://t.co/BPOPR8x8tu
