President Obama spoke on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin for 90 minutes on Saturday following the “uncontested arrival” of Russian tanks in Ukraine.

The White House released a photo of that phone call, with Obama decked out in rugged denim.

The Reagan-esque image is an almost comically effort by the White House to portray a tough looking Obama to the American people, a likely reaction to the pointed criticism over his timid response to Putin’s aggression.

Twitter users tweeted the photo and their thoughts of Obama’s theatrics. The commentary is hilarious, despite the seriousness of the matter.
