The real image was a promo for 1982’s Rocky III, but many people compared it to 1985’s Rocky IV, in which Stallone, as an American boxer, takes on the Soviet boxer, Ivan Drago.
Donald Trump’s tweet left people confused on social media as users could not ascertain the intent behind his picture. They, however, amplified humor by posting other memes and comical stuff his tweet.
The release of the photo coincided with the 34th anniversary of the release of Rocky IV. While others may have failed to understand the context of the photo, CBS’s digital reporter Grace Segers joint the point that the fictional image is the product of his comments at a rally previous in which President Trump said his doctors have said him that: ‘Show us that gorgeous chest.’

However, social media gave a multitude of outlook to his photo. A few declared his photo perfect for ‘expectation v/s reality memes’. They asked if a healthy Donald Trump, weighing 243 lbs., born into an uber-rich family who takes McDonald’s in the breakfast can be compared to a self-made man, who was born in poverty and rose up against odds with washboard abs and a fit body.
On the other hand, jokes on Russia poured in on Twitter with people taking a dig at President Trump and 1985’s Rocky IV. They mocked that at least Balboa stood up and defeated unbeaten Russian boxer in the movie, unlike Donald Trump who is handing over victories to Russia.
