Responding to President Trump’s recent tweet where he shared a photoshopped image of his head on Rocky Balboa’s body, Fox News contributor Pete Hegseth said that that’s exactly how protesters in Hong Kong see the US President.
According to Hegseth, the protesters “are freedom-loving people who say China is a communist country that wants to crush us. There’s only one place on Earth that can support us, and that’s the United States.”
After Trump signed two bills to support human rights in Hong Kong, pro-democracy protesters in the city were spotted holding pictures of Trump as Rocky.
“These protesters are saying [Trump] is a fighter for freedom. This is our guy. This is who we stand with,” Hegseth added. “[Chinese leader] Xi Jinping, who he’s trying to make a deal with, but he is ultimately an autocrat, a dictator. He controls China. He wants to control the world. That’s the Chinese dream.”
“They look at a guy like Trump and they see Rocky Balboa,” he continued. “They see a fighter for freedom. Our press here might mock him for it but that’s how protesters see him waiving the flag, singing the anthem, holding up that photo. What is going on in Hong Kong is immensely important and when you think about Thanksgiving it makes us grateful to be in a country where we really do live free.”

SNL imagines Alan Dershowitz and Mitt Romney in hell during impeachment trial sketch
The skit began with Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) meeting with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) about impeachment.
They were then joined by Alan Dershowitz (played by SNL alum Jon Lovitz), who spoke of his previous clients, Jeff Epstein (played by Adam Driver), O.J. Simpson and Claus von Bülow.
But Dershowitz suffered a heart attack and met the devil in hell, where he was reunited with Epstein.
“Yes, hello, everyone, it’s I, Alan Dershowitz,” he proclaimed. “It’s wonderful to be here. Because I’m not welcome anywhere else. There’s a lot of haters out there -- for no good reason. But like I said to my client and dear friend Jeffrey Epstein, haters gonna hate!”

Amy Klobuchar wins endorsement in first in the nation primary from the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) received a big endorsement on Saturday evening when her 2020 bid was endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.
"If there is to be any realistic challenge to Trump in November, the Democratic nominee needs to have a proven and substantial record of accomplishment across party lines, an ability to unite rather than divide, and the strength and stamina to go toe-to-toe with the Tweeter-in-Chief," the newspaper wrote. "That would be U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. She is sharp and witty, with a commanding understanding of both history and the inner workings of Capitol Hill."
