Maybe it's John Bolton clutching a gun. Maybe it's Mike Pompeo setting down his binoculars to stare into the distance. Maybe it's the gators.
But a newly unveiled painting meant to depict President Trump and his team navigating the Washington "swamp" has something for everyone.
Utah-based artist Jon McNaughton touched off a social media frenzy as he shared his painting, Crossing the Swamp, Tuesday on Twitter. The painting is a riff on the classic Washington Crossing the Delaware, only it replaces George Washington's crew with members of the Trump administration.

Over 240 years ago George Washington suffered through Valley Forge and crossed the Delaware River to bring an astonishing victory to the Continental Army. This led to what many thought was impossible, to defeat a despot King and his formidable army.
Today, Trump endeavors to cross the swamp of Washington DC as he carries the light of truth, hope, and prosperity. The murky water of the deep state is laced with dangerous vermin, perfectly willing to destroy American prosperity for their personal ideologies and financial gain. The establishment Democrats, Never-Trumper-Republicans, Deep State, and Fake News Media will do all they can to stop the majority of the American people from succeeding.
As an artist, I paint what I feel needs to be said about the current state of our country. My hope is that Trump will be remembered as the President that restored Americas greatness. I want to be on that boat for freedom!

I am going to have to support this guy. His stuff is great...
I think first, if that is Sessions it is a poor likeness and I think he is holding a flashlight facing forward and a gun pointing slightly backward.
Ha! Love the Bolton “I got your 6”.
Thank heavens I didnt do it......they are all walking out now, target rich.
I’m sure that the Left is outraged and Paul Ryan and Lindsey Graham are “deeply concerned”.
You may very well be right.
With all the personnel changes POTUS has made there’s gotta be a reason Jeff is still there.
China is on its knees. That wasn’t any accident. Trump’s sharper than his critics give him credit for.
I love the smell of liberal heads exploding in the morning...
I agree with you, but I thought his comment was pretty funny!
I don’t fight against it anymore, it is like trying to bail water out of a boat with too many holes.
Everyone agrees his decision to recuse himself was a massive mistake. But here we are.
Good, but would prefer a boot in Mule Ears ass
I know, but I always want to make counter arguments for a brand new lurker that might think Free Republic is all foolsih people
I love it! And signed prints are available!
And is that Dr. Ben near the bow...?
Yup, that is Dr. Ben! Cool!
Totally my favorite meme of all time.
I love it.
So...... completely normal, then.
I’m pretty sure the Amish dude poling the boat in the back is Barack O’Bunghole. LMAO!!
What can happen to me if I can get up the nerve?
You might risk being assaulted or worse, the cowards might come back and try to destroy your property. Just sayin.
