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.

Ms. Showalter knows art and she is right, Obama doesn´t have loose skin, but it is extremely thin. Could the left hand problem be Overuse of Extended Middle Digit? Isn´t the ring finger usually shorter than the middle one on normal people? (Answered my own question.) Kehinde Wiley meets the Peter Principle.

The whole dreadful ´painting´ is emblematic of his ´administration´: he was just a stupid adult who knew nothing about the Office or how to run anything. It is a rendering of the inside of his mushy skull and what grows in his brain!

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

Trump sent presents to Prince Harry´s wedding.

The royal wedding is on, and for those of us watching, it was a relief to see that tradition abounded. (snip) President Trump took that very graciously, and despite not being invited, sent gifts - the traditional official bowl, of course, but also donations to Harry and Meghan´s favorite charities, likely out of his own pocket. And with additional class, he sent gracious warm wishes. The press grudgingly reported that. But after all the wall-to-wall speculation about whether he or President Obama would get an invitation, and quite a few in the press thought President Obama would, the press was curiously silent about whether

An opinionated tabloid cover can be effective, but only if the point made is so obvious that an entire audience can see and relate to it. It also helps if it is humorous and has a witty headline. What it´s not is garbage that looks as though it comes straight from fake news, or compares apples to oranges in the name of promoting the propaganda of some unhappy terrorist group. With the Jerusalem embassy opening, the Daily News has ventured well into the second category in its cover and is completely disgusting. Look at this putrid cover shot.

Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders.

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind.

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.
