Official portraits of Barack and
Michelle Obama unveiled

Guardian [UK], by Staff

Official portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama were unveiled on Monday at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington. The Obamas were there to see the unveiling of the gallery’s first commissions of official portraits by African American artists. Kehinde Wiley: ‘Creating the portrait of Obama is a huge responsibility’ Read more The former president’s portrait was painted by Kehinde Wiley, an artist best known for his vibrant, large-scale paintings of African Americans. For Michelle Obama’s portrait, the gallery commissioned Baltimore-based artist Amy Sherald, first-prize winner of the Portrait Gallery’s 2016 Outwin Boochever Portrait competition. “How about that?” said Obama, who

Comments:
They are both weird and horrible. Barack sitting among flowers is really odd. I had to turn off FNC because I couldn´t stand the preening and arrogance of Obama. Mooch was disgusting as always. She laughed that Barack faded into the background. Not a glowing description! It´s true. Her portrait is just weird. The painter does black people in shades of gray to ´take away assigned color´ of the individual. Link below. Isn´t that racist?

The “artist” need some serious glasses. That looks nothing like Mooch. And Smidgen looks like he was posed in front of some Victorian era wallpaper. Isn’t that white privilege of something?

Pathetic.

Obie just can’t stop lying. Not even here.

He added: “I don’t like posing, I look at my watch. It’s pretty tortuous trying to take a photograph of me, never mind a portrait.”

Has there ever been a president whose every breath, every day, was photographed by a Pete Souza, who had to have followed him everywhere. Somewhere in Souza’s files there must be photos of him in the men’s room. (Or maybe the Russians have them?)

This article is another gagger of an gusher from the Obama-worshiping Guardian.

Somewhere a funeral parlor slumber room is missing its draperies. Look no further. Mooch had them sewn into a dress.

Good Gracious ~ how awful are both! I could understand the Barack portrait if he was pictured as ´tiptoeing through the tulips´ rather than just sitting there.....

Had to do a spit take after reading THIS comment: “spectacularly capturing the grace, and beauty, and intelligence, and charm, and … HOTNESS of the woman I love”.

Seriously???? He´s zero for four on the above! Has he ever actually LOOKED at her?

FTA: "He thanked Sherald for the portrait of his wife and for so “spectacularly capturing the the grace, and beauty, and intelligence, and charm, and … hotness of the woman I love”.

FTA: "President Obama praised Wiley and said working with him was a “great joy”. He said that compared to Sherald, Wiley was “working at a disadvantage. [I am] not as becoming, not as fly.”

Mooch is hot?? Is that why they never are together? Not as fly? Good. Grief. Those two sure are dignified and classy. NOT. Those are two of the weirdest portraits I have ever seen for a president and his wife.

Thank goodness these monstrosities are hanging in the National Portrait Gallery rather that in the People´s House.

The leafy background makes Zero look as if he has bird legs and if it took that much material to cover Mooch, then it probably came from Tennesee Tent and Awning Company - there,s enough cloth there to tent the entire 82nd Airborne Division.

I must say that both “pitchers” ( they aren’t portraits) captured something of the spirit of pants creases and small “g” god standing apart from the world and $100 million taxpayer funded playcations.

Why are his legs spread apart? It looks as if the fabric used (in abundance toward her back and ample backside are to camouflage her oversized, wide load of a derriere she carries around with her, otherwise known as her train size caboose.

LOL, perfect. Arranged portraits because the ´smartest´ President ever has no clue about Art, realism, legacy, manners or truth. That insane black liberation ´pastor´ Wright arranged this marriage, so this is a fitting conclusion to this act. Two bizarre paintings of two actors.

As precious as the fabric sample exercise is of Barry, the primitive, unfinished ghost underpainting of his wife is even better. Knowing how that will eat at her every time she thinks about it, is rich. This is better than the fictitious story about Dorian Gray.

She often paints black skin tones in gray as a way to take away the assigned "color" of her subjects.

Is "assigned color" anything like "assigned sex"? At least she fully captured Michelle´s usual sullen demeanor.

A survivor of the Florida school massacre last week that killed 17 students and teachers said that as she heard shots ring out at her school she thought of her family and the life she always thought lay ahead of her. "All I could think of was my family," Lauren Hogg told ABC News´ "This Week" Co-Anchor Martha Raddatz on Sunday. (Snip) Lauren´s brother, David, and their mother, Rebecca Boldrick, who teaches in the Broward County school system, also talked to Raddatz on Sunday. David said he wasn´t able to receive his sister´s texts during the shooting. "It was awful,"

Lacking any evidence of collusion between President Trump and the Russian operatives who meddled in the 2016 campaign, Democrats are now attempting to re-define “collusion” in order to declare Trump guilty of it. (Snip) Now, with no evidence of such collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, leading Democrats are trying to redefine “collusion” to mean public statements Trump made on the campaign trail and conversations then-Trump adviser Michael Flynn held with Russian officials during the post-election transition period.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.) on Tuesday introduced legislation to revoke the citizenship of naturalized immigrants who are involved in gang-related crimes. The Protecting Our Communities from Gang Violence Act would allow the U.S. government to revoke the citizenship of individuals who came to the country as immigrants and got involved in gang activity either prior to or within 10 years of becoming a naturalized citizen. The act seems to be the direct result of an increase in the numbers of crimes being committed by MS-13 gang members in Zeldin´s congressional district and the state of New York as a whole. "From

In the first sign that last week’s Florida high school shooting hasn’t changed the gun control debate yet, the state’s legislature Tuesday overwhelming voted against a plan to ban assault weapons. With students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in the gallery, the Florida House voted 36-71 against a motion to take up a ban on assault weapons such as the AR-15 rifle allegedly used by Nikolas Cruz to kill 17 people at the school. (Snip) It also would have addressed high capacity rifle magazines, those beyond the standard 10-bullet magazines that typically come with the gun, the most popular

President Trump said Tuesday he has asked the Justice Department to regulate "bump stocks," the firearms accessory that can be used to make semi-automatic weapons fire at a rate similar to automatic weapons. Trump´s move came less than a week after the Florida school shooting that left 17 dead, and several weeks after a shooter in Las Vegas used bump stocks to killed dozens of people. "Just a few moments ago, I signed a memorandum directing the Attorney General to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns," Trump said.

It was ruled constitutional in 2013 — but then unconstitutional in 2018. Yet it, the Pennsylvania congressional districts map, hasn’t changed in the last five years. Nor has the Keystone State’s constitution. What’s different is Pennsylvania´s Supreme Court; it now has five more Democrats and has decreed that the judges’ own redistricting map, which gives a relative advantage to Democrats, must be implemented. As Politico reported, “Democrats’ hopes of winning the House this fall got a boost Monday with the release of a new congressional-district map in Pennsylvania that could help the party pick up several seats in the battleground

Something sure seems off about a handful of “survivors” who are garnering 99% of the media attention immediately following the shooting tragedy in Flordia.

The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either. Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

How dirty is San Francisco? An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area – bordered by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Post Street and Grant Avenue – is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station.As the Investigative Unit photographed nearly a dozen hypodermic needles scattered across one block, a group of preschool students happened to walk by

Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence said she is taking a year-long break from acting to focus on activism and helping to “fix our democracy.” The Hollywood A-lister revealed her grand future plans on Thursday while promoting her new movie “Red Sparrow.” “I’m going to take the next year off,” Lawrence told Entertainment Tonight, “I’m going to be working with this organization I’m a part of: Represent. Us. It’s just trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

And now, ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure, the first rendition of the national anthem at a major sporting event that would be more appropriate for some steamy scene from a movie than honoring those who have fought for the United States of America. Here is Fergie singing the anthem at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. Viewer discretion advised: (Video) Reaction varied from hilarity at Fergie’s screeching to jokes about how she was attempting to make Francis Scott Key into a composer of a song more appropriate for the bedroom to simple outrage that Fergie would dishonor the

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

He has no idea how to make a majority of voters choose him. Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington,” he says in announcing his Senate campaign. Maybe. There’s always been something unstable about Mitt Romney’s political identity.

The corner of Atlantic and Bedford Avenues in Crown Heights is Ground Zero of this middle-income neighborhood’s high anxiety. For the last two years, neighbors have complained to anyone who will listen that groups of men become an occupying force in the sidewalks around the huge 350-bed Atlantic Armory Men’s Shelter. On several recent mornings, the men were out en masse. Two Department of Homeless Services police officers leaned against the fence outside the 800-bed red-brick shelter. About 50 feet away a man nonchalantly urinated against the facility wall. Across Pacific St., men were sprawled on chairs and milk crates.

DALLAS, Texas-A leader in Dallas politics does not want the National Rifle Association to meet in his city. Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway is urging the NRA to find a new home for its annual convention. He says the meeting is not appropriate in Dallas in the wake of last week´s school shooting in Florida. Caraway also points to the past tragedies in Dallas, including the 2016 ambush that killed five Dallas officers, and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. "It is a tough call when you ask the NRA to reconsider coming to Dallas. But it is putting

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment Friday of a Russian “troll farm” and 13 foreign nationals leaves little doubt Russia was working to undermine US democracy. But the filing also knocks the teeth out of the “collusion” claim. That is, the charges are a strong sign that there’s nothing to Democrats’ charge that Team Trump worked with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Mueller confirms that the trolling entity, the Internet Research Agency, used fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter to spread disinformation, sway public opinion and promote rallies. The “strategic goal” was “to sow discord in the US political system.” Indeed, IRA began

Nancy Pelosi gave a marathon speech on illegal immigration the other day. But how would she know much about the realities of open borders, given her palatial retreat in Northern California and multi-millionaire lifestyle that allows wealthy progressives like herself to be exempt from the consequences of her own hectoring? In the end, the House minority leader was reduced to some adolescent racialist patter about her grandson wishing to look more like his Mexican-American friend. I was thinking of the San Francisco Democrat’s speech last week, during a brief drive into our local town, in a region that is ground zero
