  1. Sorry, I don’t recognize the poser in the portrait.
    Maybe angrier looking and with a boob belt would do it.
    I don’t know who paid the tab; probably the taxpayers, but if I were Moochelle, I’d stop payment on the check.
    That’s as big a fraud as Picasso.

    As to Buraq’s portrait, it’s a good facial likeness but the pose looks like he’s taking a dump.
    On second thought, that’s a good likeness, because that’s what he did to America. Only thing more suitable would be for him to have his feet up on the Resolute desk.

  4. The shrubbery looks like Virginia creeper at first glance, but poison ivy would be more fitting.
    Or Kenyan creep.

  5. Re: the shrubbery, I’m guessing Hawaiian Big Bud.

  7. I prefer your Photoshop of Michelle, or whoever that was!

  8. The funny caption I saw was “find the candle, the bird, the airplane…”

    To which I replied, I haven’t even found a president in it yet, all I see is a sack of crap on a chair..

  9. One thing ‘ya gotta admit, though, it’s kinda neat the way Mooch’s artist, Amy Sherald, positioned the right arm/hand so as to hide Mooch’s Adam’s apple. And the flowing dress hides the ‘package’.

  10. Where’s Waldo picture.

  11. They would have seen the artists previous works. They would have known exactly what they were getting. The question is WHY? Are they making a statement. The paintings are completely different from all previous first couples portraits. My guess is so they would STAND OUT among all in the presidents gallery!

  12. The memes are flying around the webs, of course.

    I still like this one best.

  13. Ooooh! I just thought, I can’t wait to see Melania’s portrait right beside Michelle’s portrait. Please make sure they never take it down!

  14. And the flowing dress hides the ‘package’.

    Yes. WTF, did Moochelle just throw on a quilt for her sitting?

  15. I didn’t know that besides a thumb Obama had 5 fingers on his left hand.

    Yeah, that’s gettin’ some comments,
    but I think it’s just poor execution by his apprentice, Igor.
    Notice how subdued the wedding ring is, too.

    And is that Chapstick I see on the corner of his mouth?

  17. Oh well. Any thoughts about the tiniest bit of integrity being exposed are now wasted.

    From my perspective, Salvador Dali would have been the best choice, if he was still alive. That way, Obama could have a face that looks like it’s melting, and Michelle could have a clock belly button.

  18. Anything I might say would probably be hurtful, but what the heck? I’ve seen better pictures on a used can of paint. I guess when they hang these “portraits,” they could probably find a little used corridor in the museum, and make sure most of the lights are constantly burned out.

  20. Looks like he’s crapping his pants.

  21. Why wasn’t an empty chair there instead of Obama? To me it’s more realistic of his presidency.
