For reasons that remain unclear, President Donald Trump tweeted out an image Wednesday morning of his head superimposed onto a photo of a bare-chested Rocky Balboa.
The photo had no accompanying caption to explain the image, and the general reaction on Twitter was confusion.
The photo used in Trump's tweet was originally the poster image for the 1982 film "Rocky III," starring Sylvester Stallone. It's unclear who superimposed Trump's face over the photo, or why.
The background from the posted seems to have been swapped with an image of the crowd from the audience at his Florida rally Tuesday night, where he falsely claimed that liberals want to rename Thanksgiving.
Trump's post may be a subtle dig at those who had scrutinized his recent trip to the Walter Reed National Medical Center. Trump had made a roughly two-hour, unexpected visit to the hospital on November 16 that prompted speculation about his health. The White House said the visit was for medical tests as part of Trump's annual physical exam, and that the president remains in good health.
Others pointed out that Wednesday marked the 34th anniversary of Rocky IV premiering in theaters. Perhaps Trump was commemorating it, even though he got the movie wrong.
