Can you imagine if Donald Trump’s official portrait artist painted white women holding the decapitated heads of African-American women?
There would be social chaos.
But as Americans we are supposed to sit back and applaud Obama’s artist for chopping off the heads of white women to be carried like a trophy by African-American women?
Was this artist, Kehinde Wiley, paid with public tax monies to paint Obama’s portrait?
Barack Obama can’t even have his official portrait painted without causing a racial stir.
Wasn’t this the guy who was going to heal America’s racial divide?
No. He only continues to make the situation worse.
This is art?

As @myhtopoeic points out, Obama has six fingers on the left hand. And I notice NO thumb. The thumb should be on top of that left hand crossed over the right arm. Who the hell was the artist, Mr. Magoo? pic.twitter.com/Dhgszrk5mn
