Thread: Painters of The Obamas' Official Portraits

OriginalGoober - 2/13/2018 at 01:54 AM


Some previous works seem divisive and racisit to me. Another bad decision by Obama.

Well, the painting are unique.

I don't care to get into the choice or the background of these artists.

I think President Obama's portrait is fine, unique but fine. Michele on the other hand is a very beautiful woman and I don't think her painting does her justice. The President doesn't feel the same based on his praise for the artist, or he was just being respectful.

It's a badass painting, make a good album cover.

Anyone know if Mule has ordered reproductions to put up in his house


Muleman1994 - 2/13/2018 at 05:10 PM

I would not hang a painting by any racist.

In 2020, Trump will take up painting. Word is he's going to begin painting by the numbers to create his masterpiece - A BIRTH CERTIFICATE.

Care to elaborate or are you just generalizing based on your own latent racism?

If you are referring to the painting pictured, that is the artist's interpretation of the Biblical story of Judith beheading Holofernes, an Assyrian General who was going to destroy her village. It has been depicted countless times through the ages, most famously by Caravaggio. Kehinde Wiley adapted it as a fictional triumphant slave and a master, because white people actually did used to kill black people (I'm sure Muleman could tell you more on that subject).

Seems like the only bad decision here is you deciding to be overly sensitive and not dive deeper into understanding the artist's work.

Thank you.


Of course the low info deplorables can't fully understand what you wrote but the rest of us appreciate the history.

Agreed, she is and it does not.


President Obama's, just does not look "Presidential",...But hey, the Sun will come up tomorrow.

So what does Presidential look like?

More important is how a President leads & shows character / dignity. Do you believe Trump leads and shows dignity / character?


nebish - 2/14/2018 at 01:16 AM

I'm embarrassed I misspelled Michelle, usually edits of my posts are for silly spelling or punctuation mistakes. Maybe you guys like me a little more than some others since you didn't busted my balls over it.

Listening on the radio I laughed, as everyone else in attendance did, when Obama said "I've missed you guys". Ofcourse the unspoken response delivered in laughter was like "you missed us, boy have we missed you!". Obama later joked about trying to get his artist to perhaps make his ears smaller - something that I remember from the campaign trail I think, Obama sought out a reporter who had written about the size of his ears. Now he jokes about it. I love self deprecating humor, think Trump has that in him? I heard him tell Democrats today that Republicans care about DACA deal and the Democrats don't. I was driving, just when I was about to say "damnnnn" outloud, he said, 'I'm joking'. They probably didn't laugh. I digress.

As a racist yourself I'm sure you have no problem with another racist painting Obama.

Good question indeed. "Presidential" has become somewhat ambiguous over time; no doubt about President Obama's character or the dignity he always wore with great pride. In my immediate view and "Judgement"...the background, foliage and Jasmine is too much, too loud. The Man was so Stately....Maybe a portrait of the President speaking to a crowd, addressing the U.N.

Just my .02

Is this a joke? The President is the epitome of brash.

Now Goober and the rest of the Hannity sheep are going to be triggered over a painting? Poor little snowflakes. Why must everything be so PC with the right these days?

Finally looked at the portrait. What's the fuss about, it's an excellent work. There have been other offbeat presidential portraits in the past. It certainly doesn't make for a good stern Stalinesque "Our Great Leader" portrait for all the comrades to hang in their living rooms or be executed, but it is colorful and refreshing.

To me it looks like his chair is in a field of poison ivy, his face has been flattened, and squared off. Not a very good painting.

Anyone else notice the cannabis leaf slyly hidden in Obama's portrait? I think the artist included it as a figurative middle finger to Jeff Sessions...

Look closer....It's right near the slyly hidden Koran. Another middle finger to Jeff Sessions...

The Koran in the Obama portrait.
Perfect for the Islamic Extremist Terrorist supporting former president.

You realize he's going to be posting about the hidden Koran on other message boards and bringing it up with all his conservative friends (if he has any friends), who are going to tell others, who are going to in turn tell others. It will likely be on Hannity by next week.

The Koran in the Obama portrait.

Say what? Obama was originally raised as a Muslim so of course he loved the Quran, his alleged giving up his religion to become a Catholic or whatever church it was that he went to in Chicago would in the eyes of Muslims make him an apostate because he went against his original religion.

There are some other disturbing things I heard recently, from a prophecy side. I saw videos from an Indian prophet who says that he was given information that the anti-Christ would have 3 bases from which he operates, one would be political, one would be religious and one would be financial. he was then told the political base would be in Berlin, and Obama was been to Berlin and is establishing a presence there. As to religious, well, if you think about it, the anti-Christ might be more acceptable to more people if he had dual religions. He knows Islam, he was once a Muslim. Financial backing? Not sure if that will be Washington, New York or somewhere else.

I am NOT saying that Obama is the anti-Christ, because, there is just too much stuff going on. I have been of the opinion that it is Charles, Prince of Wales, but he would put William in charge of things and I told you about Charles Coat of Arms that went back 500 years and exactly depicted every one of the symbols described in Revelations. William had his crest changed. William also has blood from Diana who is from the Merovingian bloodline, the same as Jesus was. For anyone to convince the world that they are Jesus, with modern DNA they would want the same bloodline as Jesus to convince people.

But, there are a few problems, one of the prophecies about who the anti-Christ will be (and this is Islamic prophecy, that went back to the time of Muhammad, peace be upon him and all the prophets). One of those prophecies says that the anti-Christ will be the person who is able to get a peace treaty signed between Israel and Palestine. This has recently occurred, yes Trump sent Jared Kushner over there, but guess who else was involved, the new leader of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman Abdul Aziz al-Saud, who was the next successor in line for the throne of Saudi Arabia. Remember the recent corruption scandal where he arrested more than 12 luminaries from Saudi and demanded money from them to be released? Well, there is more to it than just the money to stuff the coffers with. He also demanded they give an oath of loyalty to him. Some of them refused. In addition to this, guess what else, he recently reportedly paid $400 MILLION dollars for a Leonardo Da Vinci portrait of guess who? JESUS.
