The Internet In An Uproar Over New Painting Of Donald And Melania Trump

Published

on

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have been doing such an impeccable job in their positions for the past year and a half that artists have begun painting portraits of them. Very good ones too. However, recent paintings released by notoriously conservative painters have been receiving a lot of flack in the media and a lot of support from the president’s supporters. Especially because the paintings have been depicting the administration and the president in a positive light. But you have to look at the paintings yourself to determine what your opinion of it is.

Faith Family America reported,

“On Tuesday, patriotic painter Jon McNaughton shared a new painting on his Twitter page. The painting is based on Washington Crossing the Delaware, and it has the internet losing its mind. The Utah-based artist shared the painting, titled “Crossing the Swamp.” The painting replaces George Washington’s crew with members of the Trump administration and puts President Trump in the place of the founding father.

“My new painting—‘Crossing the Swamp’ ‘Never give up. Never lower your light. Never stop till the swamp is dry,’” McNaughton tweeted. In the painting, Trump is at the helm while Vice President Mike Pence holds the flag by his side. Naughton identifies the rest as: U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley; Defense Secretary Jim Mattis; Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson; Attorney General Jeff Sessions; first lady Melania Trump; Secretary of State Pompeo; White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders; the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump; National Security Adviser Bolton; Kellyanne Conway; and Chief of Staff John Kelly.

The painter added on his website, “Trump endeavors to cross the ‘swamp’ of Washington DC as he carries the light of truth, hope, and prosperity. The murky water of the deep state is laced with dangerous vermin, perfectly willing to destroy American prosperity for their personal ideologies and financial gain.” McNaughton also wrote that he hoped people will “study the paintings and try to understand the deeper meaning.” And study they did.

The painting quickly got picked apart by Twitter user. People latched onto the more comical aspects of the painting. But there were certainly some supporters. What do you think of the painting?”

Many of the president’s supporters are loyal and have been with him since the very beginning. It makes perfect sense why they would enjoy such good artwork. Ultimately, these are nothing more or less than a private citizens desire to paint politicians and American citizens that he believes in and wants to represent. If he wants to continue doing this, he has the right to do so. If people do not like his paintings, then they do not have to buy it. Simple as that. This is the United States of America and people have the right to do as they please and the liberal media and the Democratic party does not have a right to tell anyone what they can and cannot paint.

While ABC News reported,

“”Over 240 years ago George Washington suffered through Valley Forge and crossed the Delaware River to bring an astonishing victory to the Continental Army,” McNaughton wrote in his description of the painting. “This led to what many thought was impossible, to defeat a despot King and his formidable army.

“Today, Trump endeavors to cross the ‘swamp’ of Washington, D.C. as he carries the light of truth, hope, and prosperity.” Trump has long decried Washington, D.C.’s so-called “swamp” at campaign rallies and in speeches. “It is time to drain the swamp in Washington, D.C.,” Trump said at a Wisconsin campaign rally in October, 2016.

McNaughton told ABC News that Trump’s phrase of “draining the swamp” was on his mind when painting, but did not think it would suit the depiction. “The idea of draining the swamp is something I’ve been thinking about but you know to me realistically you’re not going to drain the swamp in a term of a president,” McNaughton said. “This is a process that could take a generation so instead of draining the swamp it made more sense to me to make something crossing the swamp.”

Further on in McNaughton’s description of the painting, the artist argues that the murky water of D.C. is subject to “dangerous vermin, perfectly willing to destroy American prosperity for their personal ideologies and financial gain.” McNaughton defines these “vermin” as “establishment Democrats, Never-Trumper-Republicans, [the] Deep State, and [the] Fake News Media.” “The country is really divided on this, obviously I get a lot of kickback from the left and a lot of support from the right,” McNaughton said. “One of the ways I can normally gauge how well a painting is doing is how much kickback I get from the left. They’re usually most vocal at first, but it’s been a real positive experience with this painting. Things are looking good.””

McNaughton’s artwork is diverse. His focus is primarily on patriotic and religious landscapes as well as interactive work as well. His artwork focuses primarily on well known historical figures in American history. For his political work, over the past few years, it has primarily focused on President Trump. Several of his painting include him with an American flag, at historical landmarks, with Robert Mueller who is conducting the independent investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election, just to name a few.

It is clear that McNaughton’s work focuses on a love for America. To purchase his paintings as well as take a look at his finished materials visit his website at www.jonmcnaughton.com. His work ranges in price from just a few hundred dollars to a few thousand.

Kavanaugh Accuser Unravelling – Hit With Stiff Ultimatum After Ignoring Senate’s Inquiries

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins said she finds it odd that Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of high school-era sexual assault, will not respond to inquiries from the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“That’s very puzzling to me. I have said from the beginning that these are very serious allegations and she deserves to be heard. She’s now being given an opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee and to answer questions and I really hope that she doesn’t pass up that opportunity,” Collins said to a group of reporters in the Dirksen Senate Office Building Tuesday morning.

This comes as Ford previously said she would be willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Collins has been on the fence on her support for Kavanaugh, and mentioned to reporters Tuesday she would like to see the “two attorneys who are representing Judge Kavanaugh and Professor Ford do the questioning for the first round and then go to the committee for questions.”

“It’s not unheard of to have counsel do questioning,” she added. “[Ford] will be represented by counsel. And I think it’s important that we hear from both Professor Ford and Judge Kavanaugh under oath in a public hearing.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Democrats for bringing forward a 36-year-old accusation of misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh, on the Senate floor Monday.

Mueller Investigation Comes To Screeching Halt After Anti-Trump Dem Exposes His Fatal Mistake

Published

...

* By

Bob Woodward, an investigative reporter who works for The Washington Post, has been in the business of ‘dirty little secrets’ so long that he was part of the team who cast a light on Richard Nixon during Watergate. In fact, once Fox News even called him a Watergate legend. Well, it has become quite obvious that now he has his sights set on President Trump and his administration. In fact, he makes it very clear where he stands when it comes to President Trump in his new “secret” book, ‘Fear’.

Yes, it was a secret because he told no one about it for the past 19 months he’s been writing it. He wanted to keep a ‘low profile’ while he researched what he planned to include in the book. There was a press release for ‘Fear’ that described the book as “an unprecedented look into the harrowing life inside Donald Trump’s White House and how the president makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies”.

Woodward claims that he engaged in “hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources”. It is for this reason, we can tip a hat to the man’s work ethic despite the difference of opinion we have with him regarding President Trump and the administration. I am going to show you why right now.

Bob Woodward had an interview with Hugh Hewitt recently, in fact just a few days ago. In this interview what he revealed arguably gives President Trump supporters a very good reason to send a fat “IN YOUR FACE!” telegram to Democrats.

Check this out!

“So let’s set aside the Comey firing, which as a Constitutional law professor, no one will ever persuade me can be obstruction. And Rod Rosenstein has laid out reasons why even if those weren’t the president’s reasons. Set aside the Comey firing. Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?” Hugh Hewitt asked Woodward.

“I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard,” Woodward answered. “And so you know, there we are. We’re going to see what Mueller has, and Dowd may be right. He has something that Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case.”

“But you’ve seen no collusion?” Hewitt asked again to confirm.”

“I have not,” Woodward affirmed.”

Hewitt would once again ask Woodward about collusion at the conclusion of the interview.

“Very last question, Bob Woodward, I just want to confirm, at the end of two years of writing this book, this intensive effort, you saw no effort, you, personally, had no evidence of collusion or espionage by the president presented to you?” Hewitt asked.”

“That is correct,” Woodward said.”

Now if that isn’t satisfying to read, I don’t know what is. Not once, but twice Woodward clarified that he did not find ANY evidence of collusion during his research. This is coming from the same investigative reporter that was called at one time ‘a legend’ for his work. I mean, this is a man who is known for his extensive interviews with first witnesses, and research into documents, meeting notes, calendars, and even diaries. He is praised for how he constructs seamless narratives of events that he tells through the eyes of actual key participants.

Even the left knows this about him.

So, you can bet that him saying not once, but twice that he found zero evidence of collusion, is going be a real slap in the face for the left. Maybe if we listen very carefully we will be able to feel the tremor being caused by a nation full of ‘triggering’ liberals right this very second!

But I digress…

Despite this, there is still a lot of manipulative work he put into the book as well. For example, the petty stuff he made sure to include, was absolutely ridiculous.

Things such as:

“Fear: Trump In The White House also details President Trump’s explosive rants.”

“He is said to have called Attorney General Jeff Sessions “mentally retarded”, allegedly adding: “He’s this dumb Southerner. … He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.”

I’d like to give a moment now to Trump, to clear things up on this.

There were also many schoolyard claims about White House Chief John Kelly such as the following:

“White House chief of staff John Kelly frequently lost his temper and referred to President Donald Trump as “unhinged” and an “idiot,” author Bob Woodward writes in his new book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

We can clear that up to, since the book’s release Kelly has had something to say about this claim.

“Kelly, in a statement Tuesday, denied the claims as simply “not true.” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also refuted the book’s claims.”

“Kelly said in his statement that “the idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true . . . . As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: ‘I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.'”

“I’m committed to the President, his agenda, and our country,” Kelly said. “This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration’s many successes.”

“Sanders said Tuesday that “This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the president look bad.”

Needless to say, the book ‘Fear’ is just another ‘he said, she said’ work created with the purpose of adding fire to the left’s agenda and casting doubt upon the shoulders our President, but do you think it will have that effect at all? We want to know what you think!
