And (hiding) in this corner…

A good look for Trump — it cleverly conceals his tiny hands.
The real Rocky, of course, was a fictional boxer famous for fighting bravely against bigger, stronger, faster opponents (Apollo, Clubber, Drago) and finally defeating them all with his sheer will and courage — and then meekly carrying on with his simple life without boasting or assuming any airs.
This fake news Rocky is (sadly) a non-fiction president famous (among those who watch with their eyes open) for dropping to his knees before the opening bell to surrender meekly before every opponent he perceives as mildly dangerous (Kim, Xi, Putin, Erdogan) — and then of course holding a victory parade to smugly declare himself champion of the world for his huge, beautiful surrender and betrayal of allies.
(I found the above Trump tweet on Patterico’s site, by the way, which is pretty much the only American political site I visit with any regularity these days. I have some pride, and a life.)
