New Controversy Rages: Do Official
Portraits Look Like The Obamas?

Hot Air, by Ed Morrissey

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/12/2018 2:06:00 PM

Shouldn’t official portraits of America’s presidents and first ladies attempt to resemble them? The point of these artistic exercises might seem archaic in the modern age, where photography can take the place of the artist. That might be the impulse that drove the portrait choices made for Michelle Obama’s remembrance, unveiled earlier this morning in a ceremony at the Smithsonian:(Snip for video)The audience erupted in applause, but the head-scratching began in earnest almost immediately afterward. Who is the woman in the portrait? It only bears a generic resemblance to the former First Lady, if that, HuffPost reporter Sam Stein noted: Sam

His looks like he is sitting on the toilet with severe constipation. But at least it resembles him.

Her portrait looks like a thin, tanned, white chick. At first, I thought it was just bad art. But then someone pointed out that it will be hanged next to a portrait of Mrs. Trump some day. An accurate portrait of Mrs. Obama would look like a huge butch transvestite cow next to a classic beauty like Mrs. Trump. Moo-chelle couldn´t have that. So now I believe this was very intentional!!!

So the misrepresenting portraits are suitable then because obama wasn´t the guy he said he was in 2008 either. e.g. The guy he told Rick Warren he was.

I don´t like them at all. President Obama´s is scrunched up and he looks very uncomfortable. Mrs. Obama does not look like herself at all. I can´t draw but I think I could do better than these.

OF COURSE the Wookie´s portrait doesn´t look like her--that´s because the face we saw everyday (for 8 hellacious years) had a permanent nasty scowl on it (and the painter was too scared to paint that, so he or she found someone else´s face to use)!

What cracks me up about this whole thing is just how awful these portraits are, and yet, the snobby Dems have to pretend like they´re just WONDERFUL. Indeed, it´s the emporor without clothes all over again! (I´m sure there´s a Frazier episode in this somewhere! Snort!)

The artist placed Michelle in a Jabba the Hut pose, which was the only way to deal with Michelle´s enormous butt.
As for Barack´s pose, it probably represents him quite well. Remember that photo at the white house as everyone watched Osama Bin Laden attack? Barack is slight of body.
Finally, Michelle made a speech, and made it all about racism.
Sad.

Personally, I like Michelle´s portrait. The artist did a really nice job on the dress. That it looks nothing like her is a bonus.

Barry´s portrait..... lol. It looks like someone photoshopped a bad picture of him and superimposed it on a nice looking hedge.

As for OFFICIAL portraits...... worst ever.

Here´s my suggestion: Transpose the heads on the portraits... that is, 0bama´s head on the billowing dress of fabric for a chaise longue, and the mizzuz´s head on the sitting-on-the-commode pose. Much better, doancha think?

The art is awful, but perfect for them. He gets the biggest, brightest, gayest portrait in the room that will stand out where ever it is shown. I´m sure he loves it. the background screams and laughs at us at the same time. Just like he did when there was zero backlash or notice over his gay poem to his ´nanny,´ or his blatantly fake Selective Service Registration form or the birth notification or all of the rest of the clues about his faked past. A perfect thumb in the eye to the world about him.

She gets an appropriately vague non portrait for someone that has more than a few questions about her true sex. Even if that isn´t really a question, the depressed, ugly painting is a reflection on her disgust with this country and culture, so perfect for her.

It´s rumored that there was a note on Michelle´s portrait:
"There´s plenty more where this came from. - Napoleon"

What Michelle is saying: I’m also thinking about all the young people, particularly girls and girls of color, who in years ahead will come to this place and they will look up, and they will see an image of someone who looks like them hanging on the wall.

What she is thinking: I hope it looks like one of them, ´cuz it sure doesn´t look like ME!"

I have mixed feelings about the ´portraits´ are Mooch and Hussein so tasteless that they actually think that such are good artwork, and deserve to be hanging in the official gallery of presidents....

Or, do they know the paintings are crap, and doing it all to show their disdain for the entire nation and traditions of official portraits.

Barry looks like he just sat down in a pile of dollar bills, very appropriate for him. They should entitle the painting, OPM.

Michelle´s definitely does not capture the hate-filled face that she presented to us. No resemblance at all.

Horrendous art but wait until they find a way to carve him on Mt. Rushmore. You know they want to.

There is not very much color, shading or contrast on mitches skin color. Almost looks white. As for hussien. He looks terribl posed like that. The man spread. Remember how women were complaining about how men sat like that on the subway. Also. Those stink weeds in the back are suppose to represent Kenya Hawaii and Chicago. Why Kenya. His father was from there. Not him And why was his mothers place of birth not portrayed. Art is suppose to make you feel good about what your seeing. They should get our money back. They got “took!”

2nd post apologies, but, I did google Michelle´s artist, and I should have noticed this at first glance, coming from a family of artists.
Her artist paints very much in the style of early 20th century black folk (untrained) artists. Antiques Road Show often displays such art works.
The problem I have with the rendition of Michelle is that the face doesn´t match up with her face. In addition, the artist is known for using grey instead of an african skin tone. She did that with Michelle.

As private portraits, the paintings are to the tastes of the Obamas. But as official portraits, they are inappropriate - the paintings are gaudy and will stand out in the gallery but not in a good way.

The bare arms of Michelle Obama are not in keeping with the usual dignity of the official portraits. She appears as a woman about to attend a garden party and the image is not at all representative of her position as the wife of the President of the United States.

Barack Obama´s portrait resembles him nicely but I couldn´t help thinking that he looked as though he were sitting in a field of poison ivy.

Unfortunately, like everything associated with the Obamas, these portraits are tasteless and socially defiant.

I think the portraits are perfect. Obama looks like he’s sitting on the toilet taking a crap and he is lost in the high weeds. Perfect metaphors for his time in office. Mouchelle is over shadowed by her tent. The technique leaves a lot to be desired, as well. What do you expect with an affirmative action president and painter? The USA deserved better than we got.

In the span of 24 hours, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has done what none of her colleagues in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet have before: successfully telegraphed to her boss that she will not quietly suffer his public humiliations. Haley was initially blamed by White House aides for creating confusion by speaking on national television about the administration’s plans to roll out new sanctions against Russia that the president ultimately decided to defer. But within hours of White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow’s statement Tuesday that Haley had fallen prey to “momentary confusion” and gotten

Barbara Pierce Bush was the last of her kind.

She was indeed all these things. In surveying her life after her passing at the age of 92, I’m struck by the fact that she was probably the last truly prominent American woman to grow to maturity at

James Comey´s extended book tour isn´t only rattling President Trump. It´s also inducing a bit of post-traumatic stress disorder among Democrats, many of whom consider the fired FBI director the villain of the 2016 election. Comey´s near-omnipresence on the air and online to promote the release of “A Higher Loyalty” complicates, if not undermines, Democrats’ effort to capitalize on the feud between the president and the nation´s former top law enforcement official. On one hand, they are still seething over Comey´s decision to issue a scathing indictment of Hillary Clinton´s judgment during a July 2016 press conference to announce the FBI would

An interesting catch by anti-Trump GOP strategist Liz Mair, who says that this latest polling nugget explains why Hillary Clinton´s obnoxious whining about ´sexism´ ought to be directed at her own party, not the GOP. The twice-failed presidential candidate recently complained that losing male politicians are never told to shut up and go away (which isn´t true at all), so why should she do so? I´d wager that Republicans would wholeheartedly agree in this case; I´ve argued that the RNC should consider devoting resources to help ensure that Mrs. Clinton´s voice remains as loud and prevalent as ever before in

The federal judge presiding over the Michael Cohen case finds herself at the center of one of the toughest legal brawls of the Trump era -- but District Judge Kimba Wood is no stranger to the spotlight. She has a colorful and potentially controversial past that could arise as the case involving President Trump´s personal attorney moves forward. Trump allies were quick to note that Wood once was considered for attorney general by then-President Bill Clinton -- and she even officiated the wedding of left-wing billionaire George Soros. Former Trump adviser and current Fox News contributor Sebastian Gorka said Wood

Historians and journalists on Tuesday tweeted out the hand-written love letter that future President George H.W. Bush sent to his then-fiancée Barbara Pierce on Dec. 12, 1943. Michael Beschloss, a presidential historian, tweeted that Bush was a U.S. Navy pilot at the time during World War II. The letter written in blue ink on Navy stationery and begins: "My darling Bar." The future president begins by telling her how happy he was to read their engagement announcement in the newspaper. “I love you, precious, with all my heart and to know that you love me means my life. How often I have thought

Trillions Upon Trillions of Viruses

High in the Sierra Nevada mountains of Spain, an international team of researchers set out four buckets to gather a shower of viruses falling from the sky. Scientists have surmised there is a stream of viruses circling the planet, above the planet’s weather systems but below the level of airline travel. Very little is known about this realm, and that’s why the number of deposited viruses stunned the team in Spain. Each day, they calculated, some 800 million viruses cascade onto every square meter of the planet. Most of the globe-trotting viruses are swept into the air by sea spray, and lesser

James Comey says he "almost got emotional" with President Barack Obama shortly after the 2016 election, after he had been widely criticized for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, particularly the letter he sent to members of Congress just 11 days before the election that the FBI had reopened its investigation after finding additional emails. Many Democrats, including Clinton, believe that the announcement so close to the election may well have cost her the presidency. "He held me back after one of the very last meetings I had with him, after the election, and said he didn´t wanna

Who is James Comey? Is he the world’s tallest Boy Scout, as he tries to convince us through five hours of insufferable earnestness with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos? Or is he a self-promoter who has lied on several occasions, leaked information to the press, and who conducted a sham investigation of Hillary Clinton, whom he expected to be the next president? James Comey is a fraud. Far from being the last honorable man standing, as he surely pretends to be, the former FBI Director has shown his true colors by writing a book that does not serve the best interests of the

The body count is staggering. In my 43 years as a journalist, armies of trained bloodhounds have been run out of newsrooms where I´ve worked, victims of layoffs, and buyouts, and battle fatigue. I´ve lost so many hundreds of colleagues, I can´t keep track of where they ended up. These were smart, curious reporters, photographers and editors who told stories that defined place and time and made us all know each other a little better. They covered the arts and the local sports teams. They bird-dogged city councils, courts, law enforcement, school districts and other agencies that spend our tax dollars, bearing

NEW YORK (CBS) — A sketch of the man Stormy Daniels says threatened her lit up Twitter on Tuesday, with many seeing a resemblance to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Daniels appeared on ABC’s “The View” Tuesday morning with lawyer Michael Avenatti. They released a sketch of the man Daniels says approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 while she was carrying her infant daughter, and told her “not to go to police and leave Mr. Trump alone.” Daniels said the encounter happened after she had agreed to give a magazine her story about the alleged

Former FBI Director James B. Comey said Wednesday that he no longer considers himself a Republican. “I just think they’ve lost their way, and I can’t be associated with it,” Mr. Comey said on ABC News podcast “Start Here.” Mr. Comey attributed the change in the party to the 2016 election and said that after he was fired, he started to become more politically aware. He has been a lifelong Republican and said that in today’s party, the only Republican he does respect is former 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney. He called Mr. Romney, who is running for the open Senate seat in Utah, a “person of principle and honor.”

Kramerbooks, located in Washington’s trendy Dupont Circle district, is the place Washingtonians go to hang out, browse books, and grab something to eat at the attached cafe. It’s much smaller than a Barnes and Noble and has survived Amazon because it is cozy and inviting, offering the feeling that you are immersed within a warm den of great books. And if you’re going to sell a political book, it’s a good place to start, given the clientele. The place was open at 12:01 am Tuesday morning expecting long lines for James Comey’s new book, “I’ve Got Higher Morals than You,” or “I’m

As president of S.F. Travel, the city’s visitors bureau, Joe D’Alessandro’s job is to promote San Francisco. You’d think he’d be hyping the city’s gorgeous vistas, top-notch restaurants and glorious museums. Instead, he’s getting honest. Sure, San Francisco has great facets worthy of postcards and travel books, but it also has a worsening underbelly that D’Alessandro says he can no longer gloss over. People injecting themselves with drugs in broad daylight, their dirty needles and other garbage strewn on the sidewalks. Tent camps. Human feces. The threatening behavior of some people who appear either mentally ill or high. Petty theft. “The streets are

On Tuesday, Starbucks announced it will be closing 8,000 stores on May 29 so 175,000 employees can attend a training program that will address implicit bias, promote inclusion and help prevent discrimination, NBC reports. Eric Holder was tapped as one of the ‘experts’ to assist with training the employees. That’s all you need to know. NBC reported: Starbucks said Tuesday it will be closing all of its company-owned restaurants in the U.S. during the afternoon of May 29 to conduct a racial-bias education program. “I’ve spent the last few days in Philadelphia with my leadership team listening to the community,

During a Tuesday interview with “Good Morning America,” former FBI Director praised Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James, saying he learned a lot about leadership from the future Hall of Fame. “I admire LeBron James, and he’s probably about to find out I used to talk about him all over the FBI and say he illustrates what the endless pursuit of excellence looks like,” Comey told host George Stephanopoulos. He continued, “Every offseason, I’ve read, he tries to find a part of his game to make better — which is crazy, because he’s already better than everybody else. It’s because he measures himself

James Woods went there. Late Saturday night, patriotic actor James Woods asked anyone who attended Columbia University and recalled Obama as a student there to please respond by tweeting a picture of him at Columbia. Twitter erupted and the responses were hilarious. Barry Hussein Obama’s records are still sealed so we don’t know what his grades were like nor do we know the content of any papers he wrote. People who attended Columbia University at the same time as Obama do not recall seeing him or having any classes with him.

After starting an advertiser boycott of Fox News Channel host Laura Ingraham, gun-control activist David Hogg has set his sights on two new targets — iconic gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson and its capital backers. In a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Hogg sicced his 764,000 Twitter followers on five investment companies, singling out two most of all — Blackrock and Vanguard Group. “.@blackrock and @Vanguard_Group are two of the biggest investors in gun manufacturers; if you use them, feel free to let them know,” he tweeted with a winking emoji. In one follow-up tweet he used the hashtags #BoycottBlackrock and

President Donald Trump’s tax cuts will be anything but for about 1 million California taxpayers who will owe Uncle Sam more money a year from now. They’re the Californians who will lose a collective $12 billion because the new law caps a deduction they have been able to take for paying their state and local taxes, according to a new analysis by the Franchise Tax Board.

Washington - Dozens of Democratic U.S. Senators on Wednesday introduced a resolution calling for Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to resign on allegations of ethics lapses. Those relate to the agency’s purchase of a $43,000 sound booth for his office and spending on travel and security. The resolution was signed by 39 senators in the 100-member Senate, which is controlled by Pruitt’s fellow Republicans. Although Republicans can defeat it, the resolution is symbolically important because it represents the most senators ever to call for a Cabinet member’s ouster in resolution, its sponsors said.

Congress may ban the slaughter of cats and dogs to sell as meat or for human consumption and punish offenses with a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. The House Committee on Agriculture approved by voice vote an amendment to the farm bill Wednesday that would make all sales of domesticated canines and felines illegal, Politico reported. “Adopting this policy signals that the United States will not tolerate the disturbing practice in our country,” California Republican Rep. Jeff Denham said in a statement as he introduced the amendment. Some believed the ban unnecessary, as eating dogs and cats is rare in the

SAN DIEGO - Fayaz Nawabi has never met President Donald Trump. But he credits the president with convincing him to run for office. Nawabi, a 31-year-old candidate for San Diego City Council, supports almost everything that Trump opposes: He is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates spurred to run by Trump´s election and policies. But Nawabi is also part of a notable subset: the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many
