He has giant hands in the painting. Is that a dig at Trump?

That looks about like what I would expect the portrait of a Community Organizer to look like.

That portrait looks like he is about to disappear into the bushes. Kind of like the Homer Simpson meme.

Seems like they forgot his shemagh!

Good lord. That is friggin awful and completely wrong for anything official.

Is this real?

Is this a reference to his "Between Two Ferns" appearance or to the fact that a Bush made his presidency possible?

Barry are you wall papering your house with the Obama portraits now?

All that's missing is a "What, Me Worry?" caption.

Is that poison ivy he is nestled in? Hope not.

Makes perfect sense that Obama's official portrait would be cartoonish. The USA has gone from a cartoon to a bad joke for POTUS.

Obama tried to destroy the America, but the America was much to strong!

Its different that's for sure. One explanation I heard...

Obama at unveiling said: America's strength not something that "unfolds from the top down. comes from the bottom up"

Maybe that's symbolized by the ivy in the portrait.

There are others portraits that seemed odd at the time - you don't even see JFK's face - he has his arms crossed looking down

Who hired 43 to paint 44?

I swear MzChief is psychotic. One day she loves Trump, today I think she's saying he's a joke.

I don't know. Hard to tell what she's saying through those British teef.

Thought he's a Sox fan? Why is he in the Wrigley Field ivy?

The size of Moochell's hands is the only thing that resembles her.

It would make more sense if those leaves were the ganja.

Eh, I'm OK with it. I can absolutely see why the first black president would use an artist known for doing this kind of thing.

And God forbid any of y'all ever get to MoMA, or the Guggenheim. You'll lose your damn mind.

Art is supposed to push boundaries. Almost all of the classics today were ridiculed in their time. Many of the master impressionists couldn't even get a show sponsored, until they got together and did it on their own.

Mooochells looks like a Silverback in drag

Both of the Obamas have got to be mortified. But they can't do/say anything about it, since this was a social-justice issue -- the first official portraits painted by black artists.

Just glad the disrespectful pos doesn't have his feet up on the desk.

Looks like a turd in a garden to me!

Looks like he is wondering which bathroom to enter.

Then only boundary that is pushing is the lack of skill boundary!
