A tweet from President Trump is generating some attention Wednesday, and not because of what he wrote. In fact, it's a wordless post. The Hill reports that roughly an hour after getting to Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla., the president tweeted a photoshopped image (see it here) that puts his head on Rocky Balboa's body. The original image plugged 1982's Rocky III, and it's unclear who created the doctored version. The New York Post offers a stats comparison, reporting actor Sylvester Stallone's "ripped" body measured 5-foot-10 and 176 pounds, to the president's extra five inches and 243-pound frame. Mediaite rounds up some cheeky responses here. The tweet racked up 173,000 likes in less than two hours. (More President Trump stories.)
