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.

DALLAS, Texas-A leader in Dallas politics does not want the National Rifle Association to meet in his city.

What Influences a Justice’s Decision

WASHINGTON — Supreme Court justices say they do not act politically when they decide cases. But they freely admit to taking account of politics in deciding when to retire. Most justices, for instance, try to step down under politically like-minded presidents. “That’s not 100 percent true,” Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist said in 1999, six years before he died, “but it certainly is true in more cases than not.” Such political calculations are perfectly proper, he said, as “deciding when to step down from the court is not a judicial act.” For the second year in a row, rumors that

A 15-year-old student’s heroic efforts are being praised for saving the lives of 20 people in the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Wednesday. Anthony Borges, a freshman soccer player at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is recovering in the hospital after he was shot five times while using his body as a shield to protect his fellow classmates from the bullets, the Daily Mail reported. Expelled student Nikolas Cruz, 19, allegedly wounded Borges and killed 17 people in the shooting. Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel visited Borges in the hospital Sunday, saying he was “honored” to visit the teenager: (Tweet)

One of the most compelling moments in the musical “Hamilton” is the entry of Gen. George Washington as the American rebels suddenly face 32,000 British troops in New York Harbor. It’s not just his dramatic, staccato lines (“We’re outgunned. Outmanned. Outnumbered. Outplanned”), but the fact that the guy playing him is black. This is part of what makes the show so magical — its forthright adaptation of America’s Founders for all of today’s Americans. George Washington truly belongs to us all now — it’s why the nation is celebrating his birthday Monday. Yes: “Presidents Day” is officially still Washington’s Birthday,

Adam Rippon, in his own words, is “not a gay icon or America’s gay sweetheart.” No, “I am just America’s sweetheart. And I am just an icon.” (Snip) This will come as little surprise to those who have been following these Olympic Games. Even before the Games began, Rippon, one of the first openly gay male athletes to compete for the United States in an Olympics, was in the headlines over a feud with Vice President Mike Pence.

Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Russian interference with U.S. elections and political processes that resulted in 13 indictments against Russian nationals was “equivalent” to the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese in 1941. Partial transcript as follows: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked.

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.

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.
