Everyone Is Noticing One Very Creepy Thing About The Obama Portrait

Former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama unveiled their official portraits at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery Monday morning, and the internet properly freaked out.

The reveals received mixed reactions online. The art community has begun leveling some scathing critiques of the works. Both paintings were completed by unique, highly stylized artists. Obama chose Kehinde Wiley as his painter. Wiley’s style is described as flamboyant and regal. Michelle chose Baltimore artist Amy Sherald, who is known for a painting style which often nods to social justice.

These are the final results:

‘The rather non-traditional portraits are inspiring a series of conspiracy theories, jokes and further oddities.

    Both these portraits are horrible! Her portrait looks nothing like her [thank God] and his with the 6 finger hand and no tie is a disgrace for a presidential portrait. I guess we all should have expected something trashy because of his poor leadership in office…

    This gossip is unimportant. Stick to the issues of Obama taking bribes from Clinton, Blagovitch, Rezko, culpable homicide at Benghazi, giving away Syria and Ukraine, running up a $ 9 trillion debt for USA, losing 6 million jobs, allowing may US soldiers to die in Middle Easter – I believe purposefully and stabbing Israel in the back… don’t waste time like homos cooing after young boys.
