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.

New York Post, by Benny Avni    Original Article

When did OJ become POTUS? President Trump told a Helsinki press conference Monday that Russian strongman Vladimir Putin has an “interesting idea” about resolving questions on election meddling in the 2016 election: create a joint American-Russian committee on inquiry. That is, Moscow and Washington will together investigate whether Russian agents were responsible for hacking the DNC computers, as a US prosecutor answerable to Trump alleged late last week. They’ll find who’s responsible for other election shenanigans, which Trump’s top intel officials believe to be Russia’s handiwork. In other words, Putin — like OJ Simpson after his acquittal — will be looking for the

Mandalay Bay owners sue
victims of Las Vegas mass shooting

The corporate owners of the Mandalay Bay casino filed suit against the victims of last year’s Las Vegas concert mass shooting, claiming it has no liability for the massacre, according to a published report on Monday. MGM Resorts International went to federal courts in Nevada and California and took on more than 1,000 shooting victims, saying claims against the hotel giant “must be dismissed.” “Plaintiffs have no liability of any kind to defendants,” the complaints argue, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Las Vegas lawyer Robert Eglet, who is representing several victims, told the paper that the hotel’s unusual action is a pre-emptive

city law in ‘Rideshare Rapist’ case

U.S. immigration officials took aim at San Francisco’s sanctuary city law Monday in the case of the San Mateo man accused of being the “Rideshare Rapist.” In a statement, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said the city’s policy of not honoring ICE holds “shields criminal aliens who prey on the community.” The suspect, Orlando Vilchez Lazo, 36, is being held in jail in San Francisco in lieu of $4.2 million bail and faces life in prison in connection with the rapes of four women who got into his car believing him to be a ride-hail driver, police said.

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — A federal judge on Monday ordered a temporary halt to any deportations of immigrant families who were reunited after being separated by the Trump administration at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw imposed a delay of at least a week after a request from the American Civil Liberties Union, which cited "persistent and increasing rumors ... that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification." Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart opposed the delay but did not address the rumors in court. He said he would respond later in writing. The judge gave the

Veni, vidi, vici. That’s what Trump would have tweeted en route to a weekend of golf at his courses in Scotland had he not forgotten his high school Latin. Traditional diplomat Nicholas Burns, former U.S. ambassador to NATO, says “The president treated the NATO allies almost with contempt.” Delete “almost” and Burns has it right. But the tone of Trump’s tweets and comments are best understood as the exasperation of this American president who wants to succeed where his predecessors failed—ending that part of the post-World War II settlement that disadvantages America. And if that means abandoning traditional diplomacy in

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday. Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as San Francisco’s mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to “clean up after themselves.” “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” The streets of San Francisco are littered with a “dangerous

Yesterday’s hearing on Capitol Hill featuring FBI agent Peter Strzok quickly turned into a political firefight among lawmakers, but overall it was a damning illustration of the toxic culture that exists within the Washington, D.C., beltway. At one point, Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy confronted the former investigator over some anti-Trump texts he had sent. In 2016, after FBI lawyer Lisa Page asked Strzok if Trump would ever become the president, his response was, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.” Republican committee members read a number of Strzok’s vitriolic texts about Donald Trump and his supporters, and at one point

Hillary Clinton still thinks she is relevant. This week Hillary spoke in Pittsburg to the American Federation of Teachers. Since her 2016 lost to an utterly political outsider in President Trump, Hillary has not swayed far from the opportunity to make news headlines or receive a cool $250,000 just for giving her inept opinion on something. Now, she is trying to tell others what is American. During her speech, Clinton said that Trump is “trying to rip the heart out of America.” She went on to say that a test of a society is how we treat our most vulnerable, old

The Left´s dismally weak case

The venerable Washington Post, the newspaper that brought down a Republican president and spawned at least two Hollywood movies, a paper backed by the resources of the wealthiest man in America, sicced three reporters (including a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter) and six researchers on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. This fearsome team produced two exposes on the nominee revealing that — drum roll, please — Kavanaugh drinks Budweiser at his local pub and used a credit card to buy season tickets to his hometown baseball team. When NARAL, the multimillion-dollar abortion lobby, trained its resources on the man, they came up with

A man parked his motorcycle on the sidewalk Saturday morning, ruining the aesthetic of the last remaining Blockbuster in the continental United States. “You can’t park there,” general manager Sandi Harding told the man as he walked into the store in Bend, Ore. “People are trying to take pictures.” The man paused for a beat. There was confusion in his response. “Trying to take pictures?” Somehow he had missed the past decade, when Blockbuster the video rental behemoth became Blockbuster the fallen victim of modernity. In 2004, at the company’s peak, 9,000 Blockbuster outlets studded city blocks and suburban strip malls nationwide, a onetime indelible

Is abortion a sad and unfortunate reality — regrettable, as we are sometimes told, but often necessary — or is it a breezy nothingburger, completely “normal,” and something to be giddily celebrated like a last-minute NFL touchdown? For a long time, the abortion lobby has had difficulty deciding. This summer, it seems that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — and the rising feverish chatter surrounding the possible demise of Roe v. Wade — might just push the pro-abortion movement over the edge. By now perhaps you’ve seen the horror show cooked up by Michelle Wolf, the Netflix star best known for

Saturday on MSNBC, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said President Donald Trump criticizes former President Barack Obama because “he’s jealous of Obama and his administration.” When asked about Trump tweeting that President Obama should have done more about Russian’s interfering in our elections, Waters said, “First of all, let me say this: If the president wrote out at some point and said the sky is falling and it is Obama’s fault, and everybody knows he likes to blame Obama for any and everything that he can come up with. And in addition to that, it is very clear that he’s jealous

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause. The form letter is one small piece of the message minefield erupting around Kavanaugh

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now,” he added. “This is a pained smile.”The newly-minted Duchess of Sussex, 36, is struggling to cope with the transition from TV actress to a member of the royal

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the

President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted. “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Trump and Putin fielded questions from reporters at a joint summit in Helsinki following a one-on-one meeting earlier in the day. Trump praised Putin during

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’ Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.
