´Like a sketch by a sixth grader´: Outcry
greets newly unveiled Michelle Obama portrait
that looks nothing like her - while Barack´s
is likened to Beyonce´s birth announcement

Daily Mail [UK], by Ashley Collman

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/12/2018 10:06:38 PM

Former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle were in attendance on Monday as their portraits were unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. While President Obama´s striking portrait by Kehinde Wiley garnered audible gasps of awe from the audience, Michelle´s portrait was not as warmly welcomed. Many online said that Amy Sherald´s portrait didn´t even look like Michelle. ´Amy Sherald should have met Michelle Obama before making that portrait,´ one user wrote. Others went so far as to criticize the artist´s skill, comparing the work to a kid´s art project. ´Okay legit that Michelle Obama portrait looks

Comments:
The Brits don´t try to sugar-coat the quality of the ´artwork´.

How appropriate, a pansy amongst all the weeds he has smoked and otherwise imbibed.

Hers? OMG? Did she want to look like J.Lo? Both have rear ends that require a lot of material! Decades from now, no one will know who the person is/was in this rather strange dress.

I think this was a big fat middle finger to "the house that slaves built (Obama´s words).
Now there will be all the white founders´ portraits and then these portraits of two unsmiling black folks. Actually, not surprising.

Barry’s portrait looks like he’s fixin’ to come out...finally. Michelle’s bears no resemblence at all. Someone on another site said Michelle’s looks like the actress Kerry Washington on whom Barry allegedly had a crush. That ought to rankle Michelle’s feathers! They actually managed to make Michelle sorta attractive. Shocking.

When the Lakerman Commission issues its final report, it will be a milleneum before another black president is elected, or a first female president is elected.
Barack and Hillary have damaged the product so badly,...voters will smarten up and remember.

But as I posted elsewhere, the artist who painted Michelle appears to use a style reminiscent of turn of the century black self taught painters. Google her work to see that, yet again, I am correct.

The Mooch would have better off choosing a Hatian street artist and painting it in Acrylic colors.

The artist has adequately shown that the Mooch is ugly clear to the bone; I am so pleased that this will be the "Official" portrait. The portrait has captured and gives great insight into the character of the subject.

The stupidity in choosing an artist based on race rather talent is apparent.

A friend from Tahiti explained the meaning of being among the flowers. Wonder what Barry was thinking. Ultimate insult, is what I´m thinking.

Sitting on a child´s potty chair in an ad for Glade or Febreze Air Freshener.
As for her - wrong nose, mouth and hair. Rather 1 dimensional, flat, lifeless.

Personally, I think the portraits exactly represent the Obamas- I do mean Perfectly! I can not imagine a stately, traditional Presidential portrait of that jerk. Such a quality likeness would grossly misrepresent the man. There was nothing stately about that gum chewing poster boy for a street thug. Obama came from people who despise this nation and her people. So, it is altogether proper that their historical portraits are grotesque and different. A stately portrait would render a completely wrong historical view of what they truly were- Just hate filled, small minded, crude, tacky, petty people hell bent on vengeance and destruction of this great nation. The portraits are perfect representations of their true selves.

I believe the Obama’s love the shock value in anything. They got it in spades with these portraits. These two paintings will be a glaring difference to all the other portraits hanging in the gallery. All the others are dignified and representative of the office they held. Then come the Obama’s. They are all about being shockingly different. They do not understand or respect the tradition of a Presidential/First Lady portrait. They could have commissioned something more fitting to hang in the National Portrait Gallery, but purposefully chose to make a statement. Amateurish and lacking in dignity just about sums these two up. It’s not even a avant-garde, but comes across as trying too hard to be cool. Typical.

What a hoot. These portraits accentuate what fools the socialist Obamas are and thanks to these unwitting artists, visitors to the Gallery will be getting chuckles for years and years to come! Striking is the way that both artists have captured the essence of both of their subjects: her with a sour, hateful look on her face and him, a pansy in the pansies.

I didn’t watch the unveiling but I understand that Mooch was speechless when she saw hers and had to take a few seconds to come up with a response. Weren’t she and Smidgen shown the portraits before the unveiling? And if not, why not? And isn’t that beyond stupid?

Smidgen looks like he’s sitting on a potty chair in a Victorian bedroom and that he’s having regularity issues. Hers looks like someone else in a 1960’s “mod” dress.

I’m an artist but I don’t get what replies 19 and 20 are referring to - can someone enlighten me please?

#13 is correct "the stupidity in choosing an artist based on race rather than talent". Another post "an affirmative action hire" for a drawer´ (these are not artist).
This all reminds me of the ´poet´ Myra Anjalo (spelling is wrong) she was horrible like those drawings but it´s what the Obama´s meant to do. The couple together hate this nation and everything about. They didn´t take the National Portrait Gallery serious among all those ´white folks´ so why not flip America off one more time.
I think the drawings are spot on considering the subjects.

These two people have always struck me as trying way too hard to be edgy and ´cool´ while poking tradition and decorum in the eye. The photoshopped reactions mocking these portraits have been quite clever, especially the one I saw on Don Surber´s site of Obama in a suit with the background pattern from his portrait.

Mooch´s speech did mention that in the future, young black girls would visit the gallery and by gazing at these "works of art" would most likely ponder how they too could become First Lady in a Land that is soooo racist. Same slam, different day.

When she mentioned the visit, I hope she meant that the portraits would stay at the National Gallery and not be seen in the People´s House.

We are required by leftist law to give the artists a huge allowance for shoddy work - just because. Otherwise we are raciss..

I would guess that Obama asked Kehinde to paint him where he spent most of his time, on the golf course. So he was painted where we all knew he would be, lost in the woods looking for his balls.

As for mooch, no explanation, words fail. I hope they don´t end up in the Smithsonian or I will have to avoid the entire building. If it´s the new African American History building it will be easy.

At least Barack´s portrait bears a facial likeness to its subject regardless of the purposeless background. The headline is correct that Michelle´s looks to have been done in a grammar school art class. I would even go so far as to say that Michelle´s face isn´t recognizable in her alleged portrait, not that that´s necessarily a bad thing. Amy Sherald´s artistic talent can be described as nugatory. She can´t even draw a representative face.

The problem with the painting is you "can´t make a silk purse from a sow´s ear" Actually she should be pleased the kindergartner who painted it makes her look better than she is in life. The problem, as I see it,length of her thighs and legs would make her 9´ tall if she stood. As far as the kenyan´s portrait done by another black woman who has black women with decapitated white women´s heads in her hand (the original kathy lee?)in other paintings must have meant the green leaves he sitting amongst represent marijuana.
Weren´t they just a lovely pair to represent the USA?

Most of it is a bad photoshop composition.

He’s photoshopped a right hand onto the left arm…and didn’t do a good job of it. The disconnect can easily be seen. The scale is incorrect.

In defense of Amy Sherald, the artist has a definite style and an extensive body of work. Certainly it isn´t what one is used to seeing in "official" portraits but it will be memorable. I would consider them the Jerry Browns of the White House.

Historically, much social commentary gets included by an artist into their work on canvas. The artist who did Obama diminished him and his presidency by making it seem like Dubya´s legacy loomed over his time in office just seems so obvious to me. This is such a bad portrait of what should have been an historic event for our nation. But turns out we got a small man, who leaves an even smaller legacy.

I suspect that this portrait of Michelle is how her sycophants truly see her. Feminine and lady-like in all her glory. When reality could not be further from that truth. I did like the dress in the portrait. That was okay. But Obama does not look like that, even with her own race denied to her by the artist.

The whole African motif isn´t doing it for me. These portraits are probably the worst examples ever done of a past president and his wife. I would expect nothing less from these to reprobates that occupied our White House for those long eight years. Look´s like they were done at a Head Start center, and were paint by numbers.

My first impression of Obama, he´s on the toilet doing what he´d done to America for 8 stinking years. Mooch has a left arm snaking over her lap, that´s at least half again as long as it should be. The artist, nevermind bogus accolades, has no concept of perspective. But, then again, consider the subject matter they had to contend with. The only thing to make them more realistic would be to add horns, tails and pitchforks to both.

Those really are bad. I looked at the collection of presidential portraits and my favorite is the one of Teddy Roosevelt which was painted by John Singer Sargent. The one of Obama isn´t too bad if you take away all the foliage, but the one of Michelle Obama is terrible. Her hand is bigger than her head.

I think his picture looks like Buck Owens. I have no idea who her picture resembles. The first thought I had was that the perspective wasn´t even close and the limb size and head size didn´t match. His legs look like an after thought. The leaves around the chair should show some depth as they wrapped around the base of the chair but instead looked like they were painted first as a flat screen of foliage and then the portrait was started or possibly were photoshopped from a wall of ivy with the portrait in a studio setting added on top.

The more I look at them the worse they get. They are both pitiful. These so called artists should get a woke call....

Jeanine Pirro gave a glowing assessment of Donald Trump’s chances for 2020, saying that if the president decides to run for re-election, he would probably be unbeatable. “I have to tell you. I don’t think he can be beat right now. I think the left is so disorganized,” Pirro told TheWrap in an interview Tuesday, saying that she could not think of a single Democrat who could pose a credible threat to Trump in 2020. “They are just making fools of themselves. They protest and they are not even sure what they’re protesting,” she added. “If you say something that

The Pew Research Center asked Americans who they thought did the best job as president in their lifetime. The top pick: former President Barack Obama. Obama was the choice of 44 percent of the respondents in the poll, which was published Wednesday. Bill Clinton came in second with 33 percent and Ronald Reagan was third with 32 percent. Although not yet even halfway through his first term, President Donald Trump got 19 percent to place him in fourth place, ahead of both Bushes, John F. Kennedy and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. According to Pew, Obama got 20 percent at about the same

Christiane Amanpour and husband, Jamie Rubin, are calling it quits after 20 years of marriage. The Washington Post cited "a friend of the pair" that said the CNN host and her longtime partner are divorcing, though the split is "amicable" and "the two remain close friends." The couple wed in Rome in 1998 one year after meeting in Sarajevo, Bosnia, over "late-night margaritas." Amanpour, 60, and Rubin, 58, share an 18-year-old son, Darius. The Post reports that the host of CNN´s "Amanpour" -- and the network´s chief international correspondent -- currently lives in London, while Rubin recently moved to Washington,

Rosenstein Asks Prosecutors to Help
With Kavanaugh Papers in Unusual Request

WASHINGTON — Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday. Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide. But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each

A Democratic proposal to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement would shutter the agency, probe whether its agents had flouted international law, and create a special commission to rethink how the federal government handles asylum seekers and undocumented immigrants. The text of Rep. Mark Pocan´s "Abolish ICE" bill, obtained Tuesday by The Washington Post, was sent to House Democrats as they returned from the Fourth of July recess. The legislation, still being tweaked before release, is co-sponsored by Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., both of whom are immigrants. In an interview, Pocan, D-Wis., said the legislation would

Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to succeed him, is the doomsday scenario liberals feared when Senate Republicans thwarted the appointment of Merrick Garland in 2016: The GOP’s brazen act of democratic sabotage will almost certainly deliver the high court to the far right for a generation. In the years ahead, the court will probably further erode reproductive rights, gay rights and voting rights, ushering in the darkest era in American history since the post-Reconstruction period.

Starbucks eliminating plastic straws from

NEW YORK — Starbucks is going strawless. The coffee company announced Monday that it will phase out plastic straws from all of its stores by 2020. The changes will help Starbucks eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year, the company said. Plastic straws contribute to ocean pollution and pose a danger to marine life. Some governments have begun banning them. To eliminate straws, Starbucks is transitioning from the flat, plastic lids that require them, to ones that feature a raised lip you can drink from. The new designs have drawn comparisons to an adult “sippy cup.” (Snip) Frappuccino

President Donald Trump is going down to the wire as he makes his choice on a replacement for retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, but he says with his final four options "you can´t go wrong." Trump spoke to reporters Sunday afternoon before returning to Washington from a weekend at his private golf club in New Jersey, where he deliberated his decision amid furious lobbying and frenzied speculation. Relishing the suspense, Trump insisted he still hadn´t locked down his decision, which he wants to keep under wraps until a 9 p.m. Monday announcement from the White House. "I´m very close

An icon of Scandinavian social

The party that has embodied Scandinavian social democracy for decades risks a historic beating. With nine weeks of political campaigning left, latest polls estimate the level of support for Sweden´s Social Democrats at about 25 percent. If confirmed in the Sept. 9 general election, it would be the party´s worst result on record. Like its sister parties across Europe, the group has been wrong-footed by rising opposition to immigration across the continent. Under its leadership, Sweden has seen an influx of about 400,000 immigrants since the Syrian refugee crisis of 2015 -- a massive number for a country of 10 million

And his lackeys appear more interested in enriching the Trump family than reuniting the thousands of kids separated from their parents by his policies. Just 17 weeks from the 2018 elections, the Dow

As President Donald Trump prepares to name his Supreme Court nominee on Monday, disgruntled Democrats are carping at Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell for his cheap politics in denying even a vote on their highly qualified pick in 2016. They also need to look in the mirror. Democrats set the stage for their powerlessness to affect the court choice, and their reaction just deepens their political anguish. A year ago, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer spearheaded a filibuster against Neil Gorsuch, nominated by Trump to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Predictably, McConnell changed the rules on a party line

Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

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.

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.
