What´s wrong with Obama´s hand
in that official portrait?

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 2/13/2018 8:59:26 AM

I´m gonna go out on a limb here: I generally like the Obama official portrait. It´s an odd style, but it expresses him and what´s more, it reflects the art of his era. (snip) Here´s the problem: It´s not drawn very well. The work shows a lack of skill in the basic rendering of an image. The hands are out of proportion in size, even placed in the foreground, overly big. One might be able to write that off as intentional. But the front hand itself has problems in construction, at least if the aim is to create a realistic

The artist got is right. a fruit belongs surrounded by leaves.
As to the hand, hands are hard to draw, and as the artist had to be a racist white hating communist the number available was small.
And, yes, the hands had to be made big, because, well you know what they say about big hands.

Notice also the wedding band is really just lighter colored skin under the band. It´s been removed and so we see just the hint of it. It is non existent- Moochie probably had something to do with that.

But, basically, considering the missing arm of the chair, the stupid multi type flowers that do not go with the "ivy" if that is what it is...some say it is kudzu others poison sumac
- the odd composition- His legs are missing, he is out of balance on the so-called chair, You have to arrive at the conclusion, the so-called artist is a rank amature who has really not much awareness of what he was trying to do- like the subject in the painting. A self taught con-artist is what he is.

Moochie´s painting doesn´t look like her, as others have pointed out, but at least the massive number of yards of dress material covers her thunder thighs! The artist took about 50 pounds off her too.

The King of Kudzu. Monica captures him, the “artist” (used loosely, in which every toddler with a crayon is an artist), and sums most of it up thusly:

The artist shows an embarrassingly weak ability to draw.

A very good article. Monica does a lot of them. In this one she especially knows whereof she speaks. How rare is that in today’s journalism?

Of course it is not politically correct to criticize anything that African-American artists or politicians do or say these days no matter how incredible the result. That’s why the very liberal Hollywood crowd who attended the portrait unveiling jumped up and clapped wildly when the unveiling took place.

Clearly Barack and Michelle Obama selected the two so-called artists, not because they were the best available, but because they are African-Americans seeped in contemporary African-American culture. It is evident, that in the two portraits, the Obamas got what they wanted. It’s just two bad that the American taxpayers had to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for such “art”.

Embarrassing to say the least. Should have had Obama sitting at his desk with his feet propped up on it. That was his usual pose. Michelle ought to make them take hers down and get someone else to do one. This one does not look like her at all and the dress is the main focus. Terrible.

Isn´t the ring finger usually shorter than the middle one on normal people? (Answered my own question.) Kehinde Wiley meets the Peter Principle.

Peter Strzok was so busy remembering his lies when he testified in front of Congress that he forgot one important piece of information. His better half, Lisa Page, had not yet testified; she owed him absolutely nothing; and the two were never married! In other words, there is nothing that he can do to prevent her from testifying against him. (snip) Obviously, Ms. Page was well aware of where Mr. Strzok´s testimony was false. As a seasoned attorney, she also knew that some of his lies would provide useful ammunition or bargaining chips for her down the road. Throughout the course of

Recently, on Donald Trump’s “working visit” to the UK, environmentalist royal princes Charles and William refused to meet the President. Based on their boorish behavior, the population control liberals may be emulating Barack Obama, who exhibited hostility toward world leaders when he refused to attend Bibi Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress. Despite Charles, William, and newlywed Harry’s absence, Mr. and Mrs. Trump arrived at Windsor Castle where they were greeted by the 92-year-old Queen who didn’t invite them to a sleepover like she did the Obamas, but did serve tea. After the visit, no one reported whether or not

President Trump’s diplomacy will continue to make America safe and strong, as long as he relies upon his own experience in negotiation and does not follow State Department guidance. The majority of our 75,382 State Department employees do not support our president. Many are openly scornful. Several ambassadors, ready to retire anyway and with full pensions locked in, have resigned dramatically. But because State Department protocols and diplomacy have failed us for decades – in Libya, Syria, with the creation of ISIS, Russian expansion, and North Korean belligerence – their “Resistance” has given President Trump the opportunity to do an end-run around

Twitter announced it would be culling the platform´s fake followers.

There is an American besides President Donald Trump who was privy to the two-hour private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – a government translator who sat in on the entire meeting. Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.
