All the president's men: what to make of Trump's bizarre new painting
The Manchester Guardian ^ | October 15, 2017 | Hannah Jane Parkinson

The artwork hanging in the White House depicts the US president drinking with his Republican predecessors

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, unless it’s a shredded Banksy, obviously, which is worth around £1m. But how to put a value on the majestic artwork Donald Trump was revealed to have gracing the wall outside the Oval Office, as eagle-eyed viewers of 60 Minutes spotted?

So far, we know of two other “artworks” that Trump has: that Photoshopped picture of his inauguration crowd (dude, let it go), and the electoral college map. It is no wonder Trump wanted to spruce the place up in his own way, given that he referred to the White House as “a dump”. I still cackle at this, given its sheer, disparaging rudeness – like how when Location, Location, Location’s Phil shows a couple around a three-bedroom semi with a north-facing garden, Kirstie mugs to the camera and draws an imaginary knife across her throat....

I thought Liberals loved art and expression. Oh wait only if it’s their art. Hypocrites

The further Left a person is, the less of a sense of humor they have. And everything that Trump does in fun or jest just drives them crazier than they already are.

Its an interesting painting, but the analysis is would have us believe that Trump himself painted it with hidden meaning.

What nonsense.

The very same painter did a very similar picture of Democrat presidents.
These people are can’t see past their own hatred

It’s no worse than a looney tunes jerk claiming she’s of Native American descent.

How exactly is it “bizarre”?

I merely depicts an exclusive club of Republican presidents in a humorous fashion.

I find it very interesting that the writer takes a very sour & negative angle on everyone, except at the end they seem to express hope in the female character in the background.

The writer is just another Hillary worshipper would delights on dumping on every male president.

I dunno, that painting is a LOT better than those awful portraits of Obama and Mooch.

The picture is not “bizarre”. The official portraits of nobama (the Greatest Fraud Ever ) and Michael are “bizarre”. The media is replete with haters and liars .

There’s an all democrat presidents painting too. I think it’s cool. But as usual the left’s hair is on fire.

I wouldn't call that Trump painting silly. I'd call it light, and humorous. Something we need more of.

Now, here's a silly painting. it's Obama's official portrait (really). It looks like he's being slowly attacked by foliage.
