Painting of Trump team 'Crossing the Swamp' touches off social media frenzy

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.

You can’t tel them anything. They don’t know Sessions is known in Alabama as the silent executioner.

Sessions was a US Attorney in Alabama and then the Attorney General of Alabama.

Most people have heard the internet meme that Sessions was supposedly the "Silent Executioner" back then.

Can you prove that Sessions was really the "Silent Executioner" during that time?

“Guns pointing in two very different directions. “

Nope. Flashlight pointed at the gator’s head. Hand cradling the shotgun like a baby. Still trying to figure that out.

However, this is a lot more fun than trying to understand what the flower in a 15th century painting of some minor royalty’s daughter is supposed to mean.

Sessions’ flashlight is off, not lighting up the darkness. Also, his gun is not at the ready. Pompeo, Bolton and Conway, Trump defenders all, have their guns ready to respond to any attackers.

Nobody dared take it away from her. That gal is a work horse, not a show horse.

Sessions’ rifle is resting on his arm....pointed right at Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

I see one rifle resting in the crock of his left elbow pointed at Sarah Sanders.

Where's the second gun?

Sessions is pointing the flashlight away from the direction of the boat’s travel.

Washington Crossing the Delaware by Leutze has 12 people in the boat. McNaughton's version has 13 people, like DaVinci's Last Supper. Does Sessions' posture look a little like Judas?
