Barron Trump Gets His Own Portrait (Photo)

First son Barron Trump may become the first child of a president to have his painted portrait hung up in the White House.

In the unofficial portrait painted by artist Barry Wingard, President Donald Trump is seen hugging Barron Trump, now 11, at the Republican National Convention in July 2016, reports All That’s Fab.

News of Barron Trump’s portrait quickly sparked controversy online.

Many found it inappropriate.

“Until this child shows that is somehow worthy of such recognition (aside from being a trump kid) his picture should NOT be hung in the White House,” wrote one person in All That’s Fab’s comments section. “Unless in his parents quarters. He has done nothing notable.”

Others defended the Trump family.

“Don’t most parents have pictures of their children on display in their homes?” wrote one person in reply to Newsiosity’s Facebook post about the incident. “Why should it be any different for the Trumps?”

“They were a gift to the president and his family,” added another. “It’s no one else’s business. Hang it while they live there then take with. It’s their’s. Grow up please and give it a rest.”

Wingard also painted portraits of the president and first lady Melania Trump to pay tribute to a president he believes is disrespected.

“The lack of respect for the president has gone on a little too far,” Wingard said.

“I’m hoping to change the conversation,” he added, reports Tri-County Sunday. “It’s been so ugly lately,” said Wingard in July 2017, referring to the photo of comedian Kathy Griffin holding a model of Trump’s head.

“I’m not saying [Trump is] right on everything,” he continued. “We can talk policy without being ugly. At least, I hope we can.”

However, although Wingard voted for — and even painted — Trump, he insists he is not a particularly political person.

“For me to go into this realm is unfamiliar territory,” he said. “If I painted Mrs. [Hillary] Clinton or if I painted former President Barack Obama, I would never paint them in a way that was ugly. I don’t feel like that’s being American.”

Wingard painted President Trump sitting at his desk signing his first executive orders, while another portrait features the firs lady at the inauguration, wearing a powder blue suit.

After he finished the paintings, Wingard reached out to Republican Rep. Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania about gifting the portraits.

Kelly admitted it was unusual for unofficial paintings to be displayed on the White House walls. However, he was struck by the beauty of his constituents’ work and agreed to deliver them to the White House.

“This is a person taking their talent and their time to show their appreciation,” Kelly said.

Obama CONNED By Portrait Painter – Smithsonian About To Rip Painting Off The Wall And Destroy It!

Has the con man finally been conned himself?

The Gateway Pundit is now reporting that the god-awful portrait painted by the rabid racist artist, Kehinde Wiley, which Former President Barack Hussein Obama hand chose to do his official presidential portrait is also a scam artist.

After yesterday’s official unveiling art specialists took time to study the painting and found something very interesting.

As you can see above the pattern repeats. This is a common technique used by “Chinese labor painters” who mass produce artwork at neck-break speeds. They repeat a pattern over and over again in order to create a scene and save time. This fills up space so the artist can save time and go on to the next painting.

The scam doesn’t stop here though, the artist conveniently has a studio in Beijing China where he has been known to employ as many as 10 local artists and a studio director depending on how high the demand for his art becomes. Wow.

Via NY Mag:

There’s nothing new about artists using assistants—everyone from Michelangelo to Jeff Koons has employed teams of helpers, with varying degrees of irony and pride—but Wiley gets uncomfortable discussing the subject. “I’m sensitive to it,” he says. When I first arrived at his Beijing studio, the assistants had left, and he made me delete the iPhone snapshots I’d taken of the empty space. […] “I don’t want you to know every aspect of where my hand starts and ends” […]

Producing work in China cuts costs, but not as much as it used to, Wiley says. These days in Beijing he employs anywhere from four to ten workers, depending on the urgency, plus a studio manager, the American artist Ain Cocke.

Let’s be honest with ourselves, did anyone ever believe anything to come out of Barack Hussein Obama wouldn’t be a scam? It’s only logical that an empty suit would also choose a fellow empty suit to paint his portrait. Kehinde Wiley is not only a con artist but also a bitter racist, just like Barack Obama was has been his whole life.

Wiley is a gay black artist so he gets away with it, Obama is a black president so he got away with it. One conned a former president, the other conned an entire nation. But neither was questioned because it would be “racist” to do so. We know the drill well and we know how it goes. Let’s hope the American people finally woke up to the scam that was Barack Obama and everything that surrounded him so something like this will never happen again.

Former President Barack Obama and his old lady Michelle Obama just had their portraits debut to the world and the results were hilarious. As with most Presidents of the United States, they get professional portraits done and they’re supposed to represent the professionalism and great American standard. Barrack and Michelle went another route, and their portraits came out a bit different. Their paintings look like they were paid for with an EBT card and don’t look “Presidential” one bit.

Barack Obama sits on a wooden chair surrounded by flowers. He must have sat there for eight years and watched the plants grow around him. Michelle Obama sits on a chair floating in a realm of blank emptiness, which amounts to the level of contributions she’s made to the country. Ruining a school lunch program does not count as a contribution.

People on social media had a lot to say about the awkward paintings. People pointed out how odd they were and how they barely resembled the former White House residents. We gaze at Barack Obama surrounded by flowers and imagine the scene where Homer Simpson fades into a bush, only to hope that Obama one day fades into a bush as well, but doesn’t resurface unless he’s on a deserted island. Michelle Obama’s portrait looks like another woman. It doesn’t resemble her in the least. Perhaps the painter felt bad and tried to make her look better. It looks like an Aunt Jemima was painted in the 1700’s and does not look anything like what the First Lady should look like in a professional painting.

The portraits were so terrible that people kept asking “who painted this” and a quick Google search provided an immediate answer. Kehinde Wiley painted the pictures. Next people wondered who that was and if it was a male or female. Another quick Google search, and we find out that Kehinde Wiley is an African American male. It looks like Kehinde Wiley has a lot of other portraits that are beautiful. He does some fantastic work! But that’s when we noticed something that stuck out like a sore hitchhiker thumb. This is something that would make me not particularly fond of hiring him if I was a former President. This is turning out to be an absolute public relations nightmare for the Obama family. We found that Kehinde Wiley has painted a portrait of a black person holding decapitated white person head. That seems very racist and morbid. This is not someone I would hire if I was a former President. It looks as though the Obama family just found out the hard way. Either that or they just don’t care.
