The Portraits

The Obamas naturally picked black artists to do their official portraits, and the quality reflects that.

In his portrait, painted by the Afrocentric Kehinde Wiley, Obama looks like he is taking a dump behind some bushes or, to put a more figurative spin on it, that he is simply hiding in the bushes (or hiding something in the bushes.)

Michelle’s cartoon-like portrait was done by Baltimore artist Amy Sherald, “who is known for her social justice painting style.” LOL. That pretty much sums it up.
