Can’t tell if having Lincoln in there in the front is more for the “REPUBLICANS freed the slaves” wierdo-pseudo-argument or the fact that it’s the back of his head means it’s for target practice for (racist) still-seething slavery-apologists / War-of-Northern-Aggression enthusiasts John Wilkes Booth wannabes. Maybe both. Art can mean different things for different people.

I can’t imagine Trump managing to spend ten minutes in the company of Teddy Roosevelt before getting punched.


#4

I’m surprised Trump’s wall isn’t filled with Jon McNaughton artwork pieces.


#5

Notice how Ike is keeping an eye on Dolt-45’s cards. The general could spot a cheat at the table from a mile off.

In the toadstool. Repeatedly.

Another rip-off of Dogs Playing Poker.

Didn’t they yank Teddy Roosevelt’s membership when he ran as a Bull Moose?


#9

It’s not accurate, it doesn’t depict tRump cheating.


#10

I’m pretty sure trust-busting conservationist Teddy Roosevelt is sneaking up on him with a shank.

A man who doesn’t drink doesn’t belong on black velvet.

Geez, they all look like they’re suffering from acute jaundice.


#13

Shouldn’t it be set in a locker room?


#14

Sure are a lot of famous presidential faces in those paintings.


#15

Definitely the latter…


#16

This.
Teddy Roosevelt was the type of guy who would have never put up with the pultrid orange ones bullshit. He would have probably suplexed him on Nixon after a few minutes.


#17

Then Teddy would have rolled up his sleeves and started going after the whole Trump cabinet, just like he went after the Robber Barons of his time.


#18

You mean frat house, I think.

Seeing TR, Abe, and Ike, w/ those other guys, just guts me.
