What´s wrong with Obama´s hand
in that official portrait?

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

I´m gonna go out on a limb here: I generally like the Obama official portrait. It´s an odd style, but it expresses him and what´s more, it reflects the art of his era. (snip) Here´s the problem: It´s not drawn very well. The work shows a lack of skill in the basic rendering of an image. The hands are out of proportion in size, even placed in the foreground, overly big. One might be able to write that off as intentional. But the front hand itself has problems in construction, at least if the aim is to create a realistic

The artist got is right. a fruit belongs surrounded by leaves.
As to the hand, hands are hard to draw, and as the artist had to be a racist white hating communist the number available was small.
And, yes, the hands had to be made big, because, well you know what they say about big hands.

Notice also the wedding band is really just lighter colored skin under the band. It´s been removed and so we see just the hint of it. It is non existent- Moochie probably had something to do with that.

But, basically, considering the missing arm of the chair, the stupid multi type flowers that do not go with the "ivy" if that is what it is...some say it is kudzu others poison sumac
- the odd composition- His legs are missing, he is out of balance on the so-called chair, You have to arrive at the conclusion, the so-called artist is a rank amature who has really not much awareness of what he was trying to do- like the subject in the painting. A self taught con-artist is what he is.

When I saw the Obama portrait I immediately thought of the Spanish woman who attempted to restore the Jesus painting in a church. It is that bad and I couldn´t stop laughing.

It looks like he is sitting on the toilet, taking a dump!

Moochie´s painting doesn´t look like her, as others have pointed out, but at least the massive number of yards of dress material covers her thunder thighs! The artist took about 50 pounds off her too.

The King of Kudzu. Monica captures him, the “artist” (used loosely, in which every toddler with a crayon is an artist), and sums most of it up thusly:

The artist shows an embarrassingly weak ability to draw.

A very good article. Monica does a lot of them. In this one she especially knows whereof she speaks. How rare is that in today’s journalism?

Of course it is not politically correct to criticize anything that African-American artists or politicians do or say these days no matter how incredible the result. That’s why the very liberal Hollywood crowd who attended the portrait unveiling jumped up and clapped wildly when the unveiling took place.

Clearly Barack and Michelle Obama selected the two so-called artists, not because they were the best available, but because they are African-Americans seeped in contemporary African-American culture. It is evident, that in the two portraits, the Obamas got what they wanted. It’s just two bad that the American taxpayers had to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for such “art”.

Embarrassing to say the least. Should have had Obama sitting at his desk with his feet propped up on it. That was his usual pose. Michelle ought to make them take hers down and get someone else to do one. This one does not look like her at all and the dress is the main focus. Terrible.

Ms. Showalter knows art and she is right, Obama doesn´t have loose skin, but it is extremely thin. Could the left hand problem be Overuse of Extended Middle Digit? Isn´t the ring finger usually shorter than the middle one on normal people? (Answered my own question.) Kehinde Wiley meets the Peter Principle.

The community thug looks like he is visiting children that are playing in the weeds, the ones he smokes or imbibes and he is sitting on a child´s chair.
The whole dreadful ´painting´ is emblematic of his ´administration´: he was just a stupid adult who knew nothing about the Office or how to run anything. It is a rendering of the inside of his mushy skull and what grows in his brain!

You know, the more I look at this, the more I think maybe the, um, artist originally painted the hand with the thumb on the wrong side, making a right hand instead of a left, then realized his error, and tried unconvincingly to correct it.

Barack´s portrait is acceptable, even with the odd background. Anyone looking at the portrait would recognize it to be Barack.
Oddest part of it is the arm positions of Barack. Who sits that way?

The Embarrassing, Hilarious,

Imagine the reaction of the media if President Trump donned lederhosen and tried to do a German folk dance during a trip to meet with Germany´s Angela Merkel. Or imagine if India´s president, Ram Nath Kovind, arrived for a state visit to Canada dressed as a red-jacketed Canadian Mountie or as a plaid-shirted lumberjack carrying an axe. The equivalent of the above is pretty much what Canada´s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attempted during his recent trip to India, where he made himself a laughingstock because of his fervid embrace of the religion of multiculturalism. It was quite a show. Nothing was

Do they really hate ordinary people that much? Yes, they do. For liberals, the distinction between the "dumb masses" and their enlightened selves renders life meaningful. Disdain for ordinary folks is not just an ancillary trait of liberalism. It is fundamental to the its nature. At its heart, liberalism is a gnostic religion, and the essence of that religion is the believer´s faith that he possesses the means of changing the world for the better. The belief that the world must be changed requires there to be a mass of individuals whose lives are in need of change. Following this logic, it

President Obama made a speech before the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, and everyone there was told to keep it a secret.

The blowback from the Steele Dossier, the multi-million dollar operation of the Hillary campaign and the DNC, may reach all the way to Trump-haters in the GOP.

Watch any cable or network news station or read the newspaper, and you will be told that President Trump is unpopular. That Americans don´t like him. The Washington Post proclaims that "Trump is historically unpopular." Predicting big trouble ahead for Republicans, the Post tells readers, "There´s never been a president who was as deeply unpopular for as long as he has been at this stage of his presidency."

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption. Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel´s campaign manager. Israel had been a Republican but ran

John Kasich’s inner circle is gearing up for a possible presidential run in 2020 — actively weighing the prospect of a Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump against the feasibility of a long-shot general election campaign as an independent. And there’s one consideration driving their thinking perhaps more than any other: what some of his advisers consider the very real, maybe even likely, possibility that Trump doesn’t run again — by choice or not — or that the president becomes so politically hobbled by late next year that the political landscape fundamentally shifts in Kasich’s favor. That’s one reason

A Harvard law grad argued Thursday that armed teachers would shoot black students. Elie Mystal, who graduated and practiced law with a Harvard University law degree, made the case for why armed teachers would shoot black students, reported The College Fix. He published the argument on Above the Law, a law blog he edits. Mystal argued that arming teachers would be pricey, not dissuade potential shooters, and “directly result in students of color being shot to death at school.” “I know that because the only other group of public employees that is armed at the behest of the state shoots

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called on Friday for a "conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world," and questioned why Americans should have access to "military weapons." "I think it is time for us to have a conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world," Rice told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. "I don’t understand why civilians need to have access to military weapons." "We wouldn’t, we wouldn’t say you can go out and buy a tank," she continued.

A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office. On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign. Students in the group began commenting that the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number, looked like a gun.

A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports

The way Rush Limbaugh sees it, CNN has become so consumed by hatred of President Donald Trump that everyone at the network has full-on descended into madness. The conservative radio host began his Friday show by applauding Trump’s CPAC speech and saying once again that CNN’s town hall on the Parkland shooting was nothing but terrible, nasty, anti-gun mind control. After that, he turned his attention to a CNN piece published Thursday titled “Trump’s language on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful, experts say,” which asserts that Trump and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch are not helping discussions about mental
