Ms. Sherald ain't no Ingres. It takes a special artist to make a frumpy woman even more unappealing.

I hope the O’Bamas, Mr. and Mr., paid for it and not we taxpayers.

Another case of “That’s what passes for art?” situations. To be honest, she did not have much of a subject with which to go from.

Good job, kid. When does the artist graduate from high school?

Doesn’t even look like her and she looks white.

But is was painted by a fellow black female - so NO criticisms

Looks like most of her supporters even thought the painting “needed more Michelle” in it.

“Let’s just start by saying, ‘Wow,’ again. Let me just take a minute. It’s amazing. Wow,” Obama said after the portrait was unveiled. The moment was met with a gasp and applause.

“What you think?” she asked her mother, Marian Robinson. “It’s pretty nice, isn’t it?”

Having to turn to your mother for a positive quote - Major Fail!

social justice painting style


Translation - you do not have to be any good, as long as you are a leftist. /s

Really? It looks like a high school art project not something to hang in the Smithsonian. But, it is Michelle’s choice so on that point I say go for it. If she is happy, then my opinion does not count

Time for another puff piece by Big Media to tell us how much better looking than Melania Trump the Fraud’s “wife” is.

Bad artist teamed with bad subject, results about as expected. Affirmative action, a social justice painter instead of a skilled painter is priceless. I’ll give her credit for having an American do the painting instead of outsourcing it to China or India. Sad that Martin Luther King’s statue was outsourced to China and he now looks Chinese. But that’s another topic for another day.
