    Excellent portrait, but bud leaves would have been so much better as a background foliage! Now living in Trump’s world, my respect for Obama has increased a 1,000 percent!

    I don’t know anything about art or this artist’s perceptions, but I really wish he had gone with the traditional presidential portrait. I don’t understand why he’s sitting in a bunch of leaves.

      Yeah, what’s up with their love for all things Un? I guess murdering millions of people through starvation is their idea of good public policy. At least people aren’t fat in North Korea.

      Please don’t lump Trump and Obama together. The reasoning behind Trump and Obama’s elections are worlds apart. First of all, Obama’s campaign didn’t run on racism and xenophobia. Let’s get that much out of the way. That Russia had anything to do with meddling in the 2016 election is something of which Trump has been, and is currently under investigation for. Trump’s lawyers have recently advised him not to talk to the special counsel, by the way.

      Second, all the policies regarding the environment, science, education, healthcare, gun control, law enforcement, the criminal justice system, women’s issues, lgbt issues that were made under Obama are being rolled back by Trump. Third, Obama was never thought to be nor is he thought of as a racist, a xenophobe, a serial liar, and a misogynist.

      Lastly, the people who voted for Obama didn’t consists of alt-right lunatics. Richard Spencer, David Duke, Ann Coulter and every racist in America who feels embolden under Trump’s presidency. And of course, the religious right. Intellectuals voted for Obama because he an intellectual. His voters were not only the white majority. There was much diversity. The people who voted for Trump definitely didn’t do it because of his intelligence, and the majority of his voters were poorly educated white men. Last year and even this year have proven how Obama will be remembered as president.

      Trick Q I will lump them together because I have done extensive research on Obama and I paid attention. what a politician does and what he says are two different things. But this will go over your head, as you are filled with illusions someone put into your head.

    • Anna karma says:

      The artist originally decided to paint Obama on a throne of drone missiles holding the head of a dead Iraqi baby, but thought better of it.

    • Trick Q says:

      Anna karma You can’t possibly believe Obama is like Trump or worse. As a woman, what’s your stance on Trump’s views on the women who’ve spoken out against him, and the women who’ve been abused by all the men he’s defended?

    • Anna karma says:

      Trump is a scumbag. No question. But does that mean I should worship the “lesser of two evils”. I am tired of the political games. For 4-8 years, one party dominates over another and the other party sees them as evil, and vice versa. But nothing changes, while people are distracted and driven to hysteria over their games. It is really sickening. Meanwhile, the government is run by banks and corporations who profit from keeping the world in a damaged way. And politicans lie while smiling in your face.

    • Richard Troullier says:

      King Monkey Mon Dude, if this is what you came up with after pondering. Please …..just don’t say anything else. ……..please.

    • Minimal says:

    • Eric Douglas says:

  12. Willy Yeut says:

    Trump and his pornstar wife will never deserve anything like this

  13. Frieda says:

    It was never about President Obama.  Everything he did was for our country.  History has recorded him for the greatness that he was and continues to be.  It’s been a long tough first year without good leadership, and I fear our country will never recovery from the damage now being done.

    • tableshaper says:

      Luka….. WRONG!   Giving aid creates a false sense of wellbeing, as if everything is okay now.  In foreign language that means…. okay lets have MORE kids.  The west needs to leave these people alone, we have our own starving and neglected.

    • kingtorta79 says:

      Frieda oh please, drama much 🤦‍♂️

    • Noah King says:

      CNN Sucks And still managed to turn the economy around. He inherited a war and a recession.

      And as usual Republicans come in, make everything worse and then bitch and moan the next 4 to 8 years.

      Pathetic and disgusting party.

    • Tobias Forge says:

      All President Trump has done is repair the damage Obama caused … Democrats are so consumed with hate and misinformation that many fail to see how well this country is actually doing now that someone with some experience is running it.

    Where the artist on crack?

  18. Ann Del Tredici says:

    Why didn’t Trump and Melania host this unveiling the way all current presidents do for the past First Couple? Trump has no respect for history and he isn’t learning how to be a leader of a nation. Trump was a No-Show.
