President Donald Trump’s campaign attacked The Washington Post with a bizarre claim.
The attack occurred after the president posted a photoshopped a picture of his face on the body of actor Sylvester Stallone’s body from the movie Rocky III.

The newspaper tweeted, “Trump tweets doctored photo of his head on Sylvester Stallone’s body, unclear why.”
The Trump campaign took issue with the newspaper’s characterization.
“Washington Post claims – without evidence – that [Trump] shared a ‘doctored’ photo,” the campaign wrote.

Trump’s campaign was ruthlessly mocked for their attack, here’s some of what people were saying:

So you’re claiming that Trump actually has Sylvester Stone’s body from Rocky III?
Did they attach his head at Walter Reed?

This is the thing with authoritarian regimes and their loyalists. They gaslight so much and forget to take into consideration that people have eyes and ears.

I would like to remind everyone that one of the articles of impeachment against Andrew Johnson in 1868 was just for generally 'bringing dishonor and ridicule upon the office of the president" https://t.co/GiMgtsOCrP

Demand grows for Pete Buttigieg to come clean about his time at ‘corporate greed machine’ McKinsey
"The political risk is not that his former employer, a multibillion-dollar corporate entity that promotes fraud across the globe, will be mad at him. It's what he would have to disclose."
Days after reports surfaced about the global consulting firm McKinsey's work advising the Trump administration on immigration policy, calls are growing louder for South Bend, Indiana mayor and 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg to disclose details about the work he did for the company.
Biden won’t voluntarily testify in Trump’s impeachment trial. Here’s what that means
"No, I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball," Biden told reporters at a campaign event in Iowa Falls on Wednesday afternoon. "The president is the one who has committed impeachable crimes, and I’m not going to let him divert from that. I’m not going to let anyone divert from that."
People who want to ban fracking immediately, says Joe Biden, ‘oughta vote for someone else’
"Might I recommend Bernie Sanders: the climate candidate," responds Vermont senator's press secretary.
If you want a candidate committed to banning fracking in the United States immediately, find another candidate than Joe Biden.
That's the advice of Biden himself, given to an activist from the Sunrise Movement in a video posted online Thursday after the two discussed the former vice president's adviser Heather Zichal and Biden's plans for the future of fracking.
