'We may have our differences politically, but the presidency transcends those differences,' Well, Obama seemed to think that he transcended the presidency and he acted outside the bounds of it. And those portraits! Check out museumofbadart.org.

Due to Obama's petulance, they'll never hang there then, with 4 more years of DJT, 8 years of Mike Pence to follow and the 8 following that with Jim Jordan.

FTA: Obama, people familiar with the matter said, has no interest in participating in the post-presidency tradition as long as Trump is in office – and Trump has no qualms with snubbing a presidential custom. This had to have come from Obama. Now the degenerating degenerates will have to wait to have their portraits painted and hung in the WH. They will add nothing to the lovely decor. Mercifully, they will be more traditional in style than those cartoons the Obamas had done before they left. Or we thought they’d left...

This is all coming from the Obomination administration, and the pettiness that seems to exude from it. Just shows they didn't embrace the Office of the President of the United States, only the political power it provided in their effort to fundamentally transform the United States. I remember when Obama stated his objective, and many likely heard it to mean mend the racial divide, offer hope, maybe some real change in the inner-cities. It's obvious, it's not anything close to what he meant.

They and the idiot Senior Royals all adored Obama so this is just typical carrying water for them.

I would put the portraits on loan to the US Ambassador to Israel. Let the portraits be hung in a very prominent location in our JERUSALEM Embassy. Of course Hussein had absolutely nothing to do with moving the Embassy to Jerusalem and is bitterly opposed to it. How great would it be to give muslim Obama a constant reminder that his portrait being hung with "those Jews"? That would be Trump's best troll yet.

The artist Mike choose to paint her is primarily know for the political aspects of her work. The art is way down the list and it shows. The colors are drained and faded into a pale pastel mess. Looks flat and nothing like Mike. Not primitive, not interesting, just some kind of awkward, unfinished under-painting. Not worthy of being in the collection, but it is reflective of Mike's worthlessness as a First Lady. The dopey portrait of Barry was done by a flamboyant painter known for his use of 'interns' to paint most of his work. He flits in at the end to add some flourishes and signs it, but someone else did it. Again, very reflective of the 'achievements ' of BO 2 terms. In terms of Art History and joining the collection, BO's pose is the goofiest possible. It's like a bad joke in some horrible alternative universe, yet it is real. Please, let justice prevail and we will all see the biggest fraud in history and can get to work scrubbing the BO stain from every area he infected.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New data from Johns Hopkins University shows that the Navajo Nation is now leading the nation in COVID-19 cases per capita. According to the data, the Navajo Nation has 2,304 cases of COVID-19 per 100,000 people. In comparison, New York has a rate of 1,806 per 100,000. New Jersey follows at 1,668 cases per 100,000. Much of the Navajo Nation lacks water and electrical utilities. At a time when disinfecting and hyper sanitation is critical to fight the virus, many homes don’t even have the basic infrastructure of running water.

They've been through riots, protests, and natural disasters—but America's colleges have never seen anything like the financial meltdown the coronavirus is about to bring to their campuses. The rising wave of health fears, added costs, and vanishing tuition payments could crush small colleges, many of which were already hanging by a financial thread. Those that can weather the crisis—including big-name universities with billions in their bank accounts—in turn stand to gain big from the fallout. The emptying out of schools and the mass transition to distance learning has already been "the largest all-sector hit that we've ever seen," Jim Hundrieser, a vice president with the National Association

As I’ve said before, President Trump really should appoint a babysitter to the coronavirus task force because clearly one is needed to mind the children masquerading as diligent mainstream media reporters during press briefings. The latest instance of a credentialed White House press corps “journalist” showing out came earlier today, when CBS News White House correspondent Paula Reid asked one of the most ridiculously biased questions any of the press corps reporters have since the start of the daily coronavirus task force briefings back in early March. Reid, who has clashed with Trump and other members of the administration in recent weeks,

In national polling, former vice president Joe Biden is the clear 2020 front-runner. He's up nearly 5 points in the RealClearPolitics polling average; he's up in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida and Arizona. That's because Biden campaigned as the anti-Bernie Sanders: a "return to normalcy" candidate rather than a transformational one. His entire pitch relied on his high name recognition, the general perception of his likability and his unthreatening demeanor. The coronavirus pandemic merely underscored this pitch. Biden hasn't waned in the national polling since the pandemic -- his lead has been utterly consistent. That's true even though Biden has been relegated to his basement, gaffing through completely anodyne statements about COVID-19,

A Los Angeles clothing company Canava has taken the “pandemic cult” even a step further. They are putting out a limited edition of women’s underpants so you can show your appreciation for people who have “impressed” them during the pandemic – Dr. Anthony Fauci, California Governor Gavin Newsom or New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

n light of the nursing home disaster in New York, what kind of a ghoul would take that as an example to emulate instead of a baleful death warning, and then order contagious COVID-19 patients into her state's nursing homes? Only Michigan's hard-faced Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, the ambitious Democrat who banned sales of garden seeds to Michiganders, saying she's doing it in the name of keeping everyone 'safe.' 'Safe' to Whitmer is seeding the nursing homes with COVID-19 patients, supposedly as a means of lightening the loads of hospitals. Too bad if granny gets it.
