HILARIOUS.

You get what you pay for. They'd rather hire socially progesssive artists than talented artists.

Seems an appropriate metaphor for how the Obamas spent 8 years presenting a facade hiding who they really were.

I think she is wearing a stage curtain in the painting.

1) It looks nothing like Moochelle.
2) It is flat, with no shading, light, depth etc.
3) It wouldn't pass a 9th grade art class.
4) She appears to be wearing a tarp of some sort.

5) the udder is not showing, anyone who knows anything about this knows a view of the udder is critical. It's like a photo of a bull without the balls.

You are all racists for criticizing a black woman's interpretation of another black woman.

At least, I'm assuming this without looking up Amy Sherald.

Like president Ritz, I see most of you have no class. You wouldn't know good art, if it bit you in the ass. 03-snooty

It's a fine painting, just doesn't look like Michelle Obama. At least the one of Barack looks like him.

I wouldn't mind her interpretation if it looked anything like Michelle Obama. It's far enough removed for what she really looks like that if a group of people were shown this portrait and had no knowledge of who the subject was supposed to be - I'm betting they wouldn't say "Oh, that's Michelle Obama......

That's nothing. Have them read a copy of Obama's last state of the union address but tell them it's Trump's and they'd all hate it.

I agree, I was just doing my best TulaneFan32 impression.

It just does not look like like her. Maybe this was done from a photograph taken decades ago or something. It looks nothing like the First Lady we had.

I saw this and thought it was a joke.

That's awful.

Barack's is good except it makes him look older.

I'm betting you're going to be pretty good at that.
