Official portraits of Barack and
Michelle Obama unveiled

Guardian [UK], by Staff

Official portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama were unveiled on Monday at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington. The Obamas were there to see the unveiling of the gallery’s first commissions of official portraits by African American artists. Kehinde Wiley: ‘Creating the portrait of Obama is a huge responsibility’ Read more The former president’s portrait was painted by Kehinde Wiley, an artist best known for his vibrant, large-scale paintings of African Americans. For Michelle Obama’s portrait, the gallery commissioned Baltimore-based artist Amy Sherald, first-prize winner of the Portrait Gallery’s 2016 Outwin Boochever Portrait competition. “How about that?” said Obama, who

Comments:
They are both weird and horrible. Barack sitting among flowers is really odd. I had to turn off FNC because I couldn´t stand the preening and arrogance of Obama. Mooch was disgusting as always. She laughed that Barack faded into the background. Not a glowing description! It´s true. Her portrait is just weird. The painter does black people in shades of gray to ´take away assigned color´ of the individual. Link below. Isn´t that racist?

The “artist” need some serious glasses. That looks nothing like Mooch. And Smidgen looks like he was posed in front of some Victorian era wallpaper. Isn’t that white privilege of something?

Pathetic.

Obie just can’t stop lying. Not even here.

He added: “I don’t like posing, I look at my watch. It’s pretty tortuous trying to take a photograph of me, never mind a portrait.”

Has there ever been a president whose every breath, every day, was photographed by a Pete Souza, who had to have followed him everywhere. Somewhere in Souza’s files there must be photos of him in the men’s room. (Or maybe the Russians have them?)

This article is another gagger of an gusher from the Obama-worshiping Guardian.

Somewhere a funeral parlor slumber room is missing its draperies. Look no further. Mooch had them sewn into a dress.

Good Gracious ~ how awful are both! I could understand the Barack portrait if he was pictured as ´tiptoeing through the tulips´ rather than just sitting there.....

Had to do a spit take after reading THIS comment: “spectacularly capturing the grace, and beauty, and intelligence, and charm, and … HOTNESS of the woman I love”.

Seriously???? He´s zero for four on the above! Has he ever actually LOOKED at her?

FTA: "He thanked Sherald for the portrait of his wife and for so “spectacularly capturing the the grace, and beauty, and intelligence, and charm, and … hotness of the woman I love”.

FTA: "President Obama praised Wiley and said working with him was a “great joy”. He said that compared to Sherald, Wiley was “working at a disadvantage. [I am] not as becoming, not as fly.”

Mooch is hot?? Is that why they never are together? Not as fly? Good. Grief. Those two sure are dignified and classy. NOT. Those are two of the weirdest portraits I have ever seen for a president and his wife.

Thank goodness these monstrosities are hanging in the National Portrait Gallery rather that in the People´s House.

The leafy background makes Zero look as if he has bird legs and if it took that much material to cover Mooch, then it probably came from Tennesee Tent and Awning Company - there,s enough cloth there to tent the entire 82nd Airborne Division.

I must say that both “pitchers” ( they aren’t portraits) captured something of the spirit of pants creases and small “g” god standing apart from the world and $100 million taxpayer funded playcations.

Why are his legs spread apart? It looks as if the fabric used (in abundance toward her back and ample backside are to camouflage her oversized, wide load of a derriere she carries around with her, otherwise known as her train size caboose.

LOL, perfect. Arranged portraits because the ´smartest´ President ever has no clue about Art, realism, legacy, manners or truth. That insane black liberation ´pastor´ Wright arranged this marriage, so this is a fitting conclusion to this act. Two bizarre paintings of two actors.

As precious as the fabric sample exercise is of Barry, the primitive, unfinished ghost underpainting of his wife is even better. Knowing how that will eat at her every time she thinks about it, is rich. This is better than the fictitious story about Dorian Gray.

She often paints black skin tones in gray as a way to take away the assigned "color" of her subjects.

Is "assigned color" anything like "assigned sex"? At least she fully captured Michelle´s usual sullen demeanor.

As part of its obsessive coverage of Russiagate, CNN sent reporter Drew Griffin to Florida to interview an elderly woman who runs a Facebook group that was targeted by Russian trolls prior to the 2016 election. The woman, Florine Gruen Goldfarb, had no idea that her Team Trump Broward County Facebook page was targeted by Russian operatives, but that didn’t stop Griffin from haranguing her anyway. Griffin showed up to Goldfarb’s home in Pembroke Pines and, microphone in hand and TV camera in tow, proceeded to grill her about the Russian operation.

A viral tweet this week alleging a 20-year-old with an expired ID was able to buy an AR-15 rifle in five minutes is a lie. It’s a damned lie. The viral tweet, which has been shared by more than 9,000 social media users, quotes a two-year-old blog post written by then-20-year-old blogger Cody Davis. The quote reads: “I was able to buy an AR-15 in five minutes. I’m 20 and my ID is expired.” Not to put too fine a point on it, but he´s lying.

New charges have been filed in the federal government’s criminal case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates. The new document filed in federal court Wednesday by Mueller’s team was put under seal by the court. Judge Amy Berman Jackson is overseeing the case. According to NBC News, Mueller’s team is looking to see if Manafort promised Stephen Calk, the president of Federal Savings Bank, a job in the Trump administration, possibly in return for loans. Calk became one of Trump’s economic advisers in August 2016, and Manafort received loans in December 2016 and January 2017 from

‘Black Panther’ packed with

Marvel Studios‘ “Black Panther” is being hailed as the most diverse superhero movie in Hollywood history, but it’s not diverse enough for some progressives who want to know: Where are all the gay characters? The latest comic-book-to-film adaptation checked off a number of identity boxes with its almost exclusively black cast and cohort of strong female characters. But filmmakers ditched a lesbian romance subplot from the original comic books, prompting an outcry from the LGBT community. Actress Florence Kasumba stoked the flames of outrage when she revealed that scenes of lesbian flirtation filmed during production were left on the cutting-room floor. “The final

A Florida state lawmaker’s aide was fired late Tuesday, hours after he claimed two survivors of last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla., who had appeared on television were actors. Benjamin Kelly, an aide to state Rep. Shawn Harrison (R), emailed a Tampa Bay Times reporter after students Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg appeared on CNN to call for legislation to curb gun violence. According to Tampa Bay Times reporter Alex Leary, the staffer emailed him, saying, "Both kids in the picture are not students here but actors that travel to various crisis when they happen." The comments drew condemnation from Sen. Marco

As the James Comey saga continues to unfold, the James Comey legend continues to unravel. The more we learn about his involvement in the deep state’s illicit targeting of President Trump, the more reason the American people have to question both his motives and his management as director of the FBI, the now-disgraced agency he headed before Trump fired him on May 9, 2017. Comey has left a trail of suspicious activities in his wake. Comey now looms large over a burgeoning constitutional crisis that could soon overshadow Watergate at its worst.

Asked in 1972 if he believed in miracles, Billy Graham answered: Yes, Jesus performed some and there are many "miracles around us today, including television and airplanes." Graham was no theologian. Neither was he a prophet. Jesus said "a prophet hath no honor in his own country." Prophets take adversarial stances toward their times, as did the 20th century´s two greatest religious leaders, Martin Luther King and Pope John Paul II. Graham did not. Partly for that reason, his country showered him with honors. So, the subtitle of Grant Wacker´s 2014 book "America´s Pastor: Billy Graham and the Shaping of a Nation"

Pompeo continued the taunting,

GOP Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney is changing his tune on President Donald Trump from where he was one year ago.
