“President Donald Trump liked a painting of him having drinks with Abraham Lincoln, Richard Nixon and Teddy Roosevelt so much that he called the artist on the phone and then put a print of it in the White House.
Called `The Republican Club,` the print of 10 Republican presidents sitting around a table could be seen briefly in the background of Trump`s interview with “60 Minutes” Sunday, and an image of that moment went viral on social media.”
Donald Trump surrounds himself with sycophants and enablers, and it`s not surprising that there are many photographs of the president and his staff with painted-on-smiles.
But if Trump had drinks with Abraham Lincoln, Richard Nixon, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford and both Bushes I guarantee nobody would be smiling.
The former presidents would be wearing frowns, and they would berate Trump for making a mockery of the presidency.
Trump rarely smiles, his campaign smile looks like the rictus grin of a psychopath. I give props to the artist for making his smile appear natural.
The kitschy painting not only depicts Trump with a natural smile, but it shows a slimmed-down version of the fat bastard.
The only thing that is real about the painting is that it portrays Trump drinking a Diet Coke instead of hard liquor.
This painting has fake news written all over it, why am I not surprised that Trump has it prominently displayed in the White House?
