Official portraits of Barack and
Michelle Obama unveiled

Guardian [UK], by Staff

Original Article

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.

The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Peter Strzok, who was pulled off Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s investigative team last year, played a more central role than previously known in both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes, a lawmaker familiar with the matter told Fox News Tuesday. The lawmaker´s assessment of Strzok´s role in both investigations was based on the most recent records and testimony, including a closed-door interview with FBI espionage chief Bill Priestap. Priestap was interviewed Tuesday as part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. Priestap was Strzok´s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself. Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va. Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her. “He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.” It seemed unlikely to her that President Trump’s press secretary

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and

It´s come to this: according to some, people should be picking their casual dining choices based on their politics. NPR published an opinion piece by writer Monique Truong that claims in the headline that it is "hypocrisy" for administration members who support President Trump´s way of handling the long-ignored border crisis to eat at Mexican restaurants. These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs. Truong considers recent forays to Mexican food dining establishments by administration policy adviser Stephen Miller and

Europe needs more mass migration from the Global South because it “enriches our cultures and societies”, according to Leo Varadkar, who announced he will import more asylum seekers to Ireland after meeting Hillary Clinton. Speaking days after a meeting with senior EU figures in Dublin, the globalist taoiseach (prime minister) committed to resettling a greater number of illegal immigrants stuck in Greece and Italy in Ireland than the batch of 4,000 already agreed. According to the Irish Independent, he said the gesture is about “solidarity and burden-sharing”, and as a way of repaying the support the European

"I am not a unicorn," said Michelle Obama. "There are millions of kids like me out there." Mrs. Obama was discussing her upcoming memoir "Becoming," before a crowd of thousands at the American Library Association conference in New Orleans Friday (June 22). True, she may have been the first African-American first lady, but Obama´s ascent from a working class background to a professional career in Chicago and eventually the White House is a path that any American should be able to aspire to, she said. Unfortunately, "in this country we´ve gotten to a point where we kind of think there are only

General Motors Co is going ahead with its plan to manufacture the new Chevrolet Blazer SUV in Mexico, a spokesman for the automaker said, despite criticism by U.S. President Donald Trump over making vehicles abroad. Trump has been pressing automakers to build more vehicles in the United States under efforts to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). ´We remain committed to working with the administration on a modernized NAFTA,´ GM spokesman Pat Morrissey said, adding the decision was made years ago. (Snip) The United Auto Workers union called the decision disappointing. ´This is all happening while UAW-GM workers here
