Smithsonian Unveils The Obamas´ Official
Portraits And They Are . . . Interesting

Daily Wire, by Emily Zanotti

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/12/2018 12:46:24 PM

Monday morning, the Smithsonian´s National Portrait Gallery unveiled their official portraits of former President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle. And while both portraits are the work of avant garde contemporary artists, in this case they might be just a touch too avant garde. Barack Obama´s portrait was done by pop artist Kehinde Wiley, who is well known for his hyper-realistic portraits of African American men and women, often done in the style of the Old Masters or with backgrounds familiar to fans of classical, "old world" European art. Wiley recreated Obama´s likeness in his trademark hyper-realistic way, with Obama

I just knew we would get to see her bare arms. The artist didn´t quite capture the angry black woman with the chip on her shoulder persona.

Her portrait looks like a young tanned white woman (with freakishly large hands).

The face on his portrait looks like he is sitting on the toilet with severe constipation.

I honestly don´t get the idea of painted portraits any more. We have great photography, and Photoshop to make it even prettier. At least a photo of Moo-chelle might have looked a little bit like her...

It doesn´t look like her, even if you can see beyond that dress. Artists seems to be a Gauguin wannabe. His has an odd setting.

Both paintings have too many image messages crammed in which detract from the two portrayed.

Some artsy types may love it. I am certain others are laughing but they will never divulge their real opinion publicly. I searched for more of this “artist’s” work and found the common threads, black females looking fierce and oh catch the one with a black woman holding the severed head of a white woman/person. It absolutely makes perfect sense WHY the Obamas love this fellow! Kathy Griffin will wonder why an artist who painted THAT would be A ok with the PC crowd!

Looking at many of this prolific "artist´s" paintings, you see a common theme. It looks like she got the expressions from the morgue- they are all this plain, bland, expressionless, as in death, look about them. for women, that pale blue, sun burnt 1963 Ford Falcon flat is common, and for the men, the same expressionless face but with super busy background, that seems to absorb the subject in a dizzying sea of sameness, making all life seem to just evaporate out of the painting. The artist, Amy Sherald, is supposed to be a "Black Revolutionary" expressionist. And really, she is just a pretend artist with not the slightest understanding of what makes a painting come alive. She seems fixated, instead, on death and hopelessness. One thing for sure, she caught a sale on that uni-flat pale blue background paint.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders blasted the establishment media Friday for spreading a now-debunked hoax-photograph featuring a little girl crying at the border. “It’s shameful that dems and the media exploited this photo of a little girl to push their agenda,” Sanders tweeted. “She was not separated from her mom. The separation here is from the facts. Dems should join POTUS and fix our broken immigration system. #ChangetheLaws” (Tweet) For days, and without bothering to vet the photograph, the anti-Trump corporate media have deliberately tried to mislead the American people into believing President Trump’s separation policies were new (they

The White House on Thursday proposed the most comprehensive plan to reorganize the federal government in 100 years, including a merger of the departments of Education and Labor, and a proposal to add work requirements for welfare programs. “Businesses change all the time,” said White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney. “Government doesn’t, and one of the things you get when you hire a businessman to become president is you bring this attitude from the private sector.” The sweeping reorganization plan stems from an order signed by Mr. Trump in March 2017 calling for a review of

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday to reorganize the federal government, a welcome move for Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke as he attempts to restructure the Department of the Interior (DOI). Trump’s order directs the Office of Management and Budget to suggest ways to consolidate the federal government, streamlining agencies and repositioning some under departments more closely aligned with each agency’s responsibilities, according to a White House statement. “President Trump is a businessman who knows that an effective operation needs to be organized for success, which is exactly why he is leading this commonsense reorganization of the

Score one for the power of fake news. We already know it was going on with the manufactured crisis over child separations of people caught breaking U.S. law by entering the country illegally. The policies were Democrat policies, yet Democrats and Jeb Bush-style #NeverTrumps were decrying it as a product of President Trump´s heartlessness, separating parents from children entering illegally as families, in order to keep the children out of their parents´ jail. Yet they were President Obama´s and President Bush´s and President Clinton´s policies, dating to 1997. The press pounded the drumbeat nonstop for days that President Trump was

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has been a target of conservatives. It’s currently part of the larger war against Trump as some disgruntled staffers are reportedly using encrypted devices to communicate with one another. They’re known as “Dumbledore’s Army.” No, I’m not kidding. It all stems from the leadership battle between Office of Budget and Management Mick Mulvaney and Deputy Director Leandra English. English was set up to takeover upon the departure of former director Richard Cordray, who left to run for governor of Ohio.

The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood on the subject of children separated from their illegal alien parents at the border is mind-numbing. The enabler of her husband’s serial lust and adultery, whose greed even led her and her husband to steal from the children of Haiti, and the champion of unrestricted abortion actually invoked the name of Jesus on behalf of separated children: “Those who selectively use the Bible to justify this cruelty are ignoring a central tenet of Christianity,” failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declared. “Jesus said ‘Suffer the little children unto me.’ He did not say

A tent city in Tornillo, Texas, that Democrats have been using as a site for protests against President Donald Trump’s border policies turns out not to be housing children separated from their parents after all, according to the Austin American-Statesman. The newspaper reports that the tent city houses unaccompanied minors, not children who crossed the border illegally with adults. The American-Statesman reported Wednesday (emphasis added): On Wednesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to end the separations — part of his administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy — but it was unclear how his order might affect the tent city

The agency wouldn´t say on Wednesday whether it had contacted the aging Oscar-winner directly.

The cover is captioned, "Welcome to America."

Sony Pictures Classics released a statement shredding actor Peter Fonda for his tweets, one of which called for 12-year-old Barron Trump to be raped — but the company said it would still release Boundaries, a new film co-starring Fonda.“Peter Fonda’s comments are abhorrent, reckless and dangerous, and we condemn them completely,” the film company said in an emailed statement late on Wednesday. However, the company went on to insist that pulling the upcoming Shana Feste-directed Boundaries, or trying to edit Fonda out of the film, would be “unfair” to the those involved. “It is important to note that Mr. Fonda

Melania Trump made quite the sartorial statement on Thursday when she donned a jacket with the words, ´I REALLY DON´T CARE, DO U?´ written across the back while boarding a plane to visit immigrant children being held at the border in Texas. The 48-year-old first lady was pictured arriving at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland wearing the $39 khaki design from Zara, before boarding her plane to fly to Texas. She removed the offending jacket, which bore the controversial phrase in white graffiti-style writing across the entire back section, before disembarking the plane upon her arrival. (Photos) By the

A Louisiana mother of six children and foster mother to other children has a mixed-race family whose children thought that Blue Bell Ice Cream should change the name of a popular chocolate and vanilla ice cream flavor, The Great Divide, to “Better Together.” As Fox News reports, “Traci Schmidley, her husband, and their brood of six children were sitting down for an ice cream party at their Louisiana home to celebrate the end of a hard week.” Schmidley wrote, “We always buy Blue Bell, and this time we chose the flavor The Great Divide, which has chocolate on one half

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

Bloomberg, an independent who backs gun control, progressive immigration reform and efforts to fight climate change, has approved the plan to use the funds to flip the House, the New York Times reported. In a statement, Bloomberg took the “absolutely feckless” Republican leadership to task for failing to check President Trump or provide oversight of his administration. “I’ve never thought that the
