Trump breaks the internet, again! Tweets his head on another body, sends tongues a waggin’

One would think that following the New York Times’ spectacular fail on the “image of Trump awarding Conan a medal” investigation, the internet would take it easy when the president tweets out a photoshopped image.

Well, today revealed that the internet learned nothing.

President Trump tweeted out an image of his head on Rocky Balboa’s body, and it was hilarious:

Liberals responded with their usual outrage and upset:

Meanwhile, conservatives and Republicans had a field day with the image:

As mentioned above, this is not the first time that President Donald Trump tweeting out a fake image has caused an uproar on social media.

Following the massively successful raid that ended in the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Trump posted a photoshopped image of him presenting the hero dog that cornered the terrorist with a medal. Naturally, the left pretended to not be aware that this was a fake picture, and actually investigated it.

The New York Times actually fact-checked the image, and contacted the man who was erased out of the photo to make room for the canine we now know to be named “Conan.”

Mr. McCloughan was awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest honor for valor in combat, in July 2017. He is credited with saving the lives of company members during a battle on Nui Yon Hill in 1969 near the city of Tam Kỳ, Vietnam. He was struck by shrapnel from a rocket-propelled grenade and small-arms fire, but repeatedly ran onto the battlefield to rescue his comrades.

On a more serious note, President Trump did end up having Conan visit the White House to receive both a medal and a plaque, as BizPac Review’s Tom Tillison reported on November 26.

“Conan was very badly hurt … and they thought maybe was not going to recover,” Trump said of the hero dog. “Recovered, actually very quickly, and has since gone on very important raids.”

While even that heartwarming story had some critics (like CNN’s Joan Walsh,) it’s clear that this Thanksgiving, Americans should be thankful for a president with a sense of humor.
