Obamas' official portraits revealed at the Smithsonian

The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery unveiled its commissioned portraits of former President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama on Monday. Barack Obama image, painted by artist Kehinde Wiley, shows him seated in front of an ivy backdrop, while Michelle Obama was painted by Amy Sherald in a pale blue setting. Wiley and Sherald were the first black artists commissioned to paint a presidential couple for the Smithsonian.

Nation Cruelly Reminded That It Once Had a President

"(The Borowitz Report)—In a televised event that many deemed unnecessarily cruel, millions of Americans were briefly reminded on Monday that they once had a President.

Unsuspecting Americans who turned on cable news Monday morning were suddenly assaulted with the memory of a time when the country’s domestic affairs, international diplomacy, and nuclear codes were entrusted to an adult.

CNN, one of the networks that televised the event, immediately said that it regretted doing so, and acknowledged that reminding Americans that they recently had a President had caused widespread bereavement and distress. “CNN deeply apologizes for the error,” a network statement read. “It will never happen again.”

Compounding the cruelty of the televised event, the networks lingered unnecessarily on a speech that only served to remind viewers that the nation once had a President who rigorously obeyed rules of grammar and diction.

Finally, the reminder that the country recently had a chief executive who loved and respected his wife was deemed “too much” by many viewers, who felt compelled to change the channel.

“It was horrible,” Carol Foyler, a viewer who was traumatized by the broadcast, said. “It’s like when you stumble on a photo of an ex on Facebook and they unfortunately look amazing.”

:o:lol:

Obama sitting on a chair in the bushes and Michelle looking nothing like her portrait? Obama picked portrait artists like he picked the people to run our government. Incompetent.

In his first year in office the turnover rate of Obama's White House was 9%.

For Trump it has been 34%, with a huge number of those around him now still not having security clearance.

When it comes to incompetence in the vetting process the Donald has already set a new low, which is getting lower every day.

 

And, by the way, just how many scandals did Obama have during his eight years in office?

In Trump's White House it's considered a good day if there isn't a new scandal or speculation about someone new getting the boot. America and the world can see that a business man who liked to rule his business empire in chaos, encouraging friction between his underlings straining for his approval, is now doing the same thing in the most powerful office in the world and, in doing do, he is undermining any sense of American political stability for all the world to see (including a smiling Vladimir Putin).

That's because Obama left in all the incompetent people while Trump has fired those that couldn't do the job.

Obama went out and played golf for 333 days, showing he cared more about a putter than the United States. The country pretty much had to run itself without him.

Yeh, right, it's only because of media reports that Flynn was let go. Same with the wife beater now.

And why do you go on about Obama's golfing when Trump practically lives on a golf course every time he has an off day? Trump was shouting "FOUR!" when the false alarm went off in Hawaii few weeks ago. No response from Trump at the time. Too busy eyeing the green, I assume.

Trump has now been reporting playing golfs 97 TIMES SINCE BECOMING PRESIDENT!

If he keeps playing at this pace, that will mean 650 times in eight years to Obama's 333.

Doesn't say much for Trump's vetting process, does it, that he hired so many incompetents in the first place. Speaking of incompetent, look at him.

You couldn't figure out the symbolism of Obama's portrait?:blink:

Maybe a backdrop of his civilian drone strikes in Syria and Afghanistan would have suited Obama better. :lol:
