Have you had a chance to look at Michelle and Barack’s portraits?

Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald were chosen to paint portraits of the Obama’s and we are not impressed.

Kehindle Wiley was hand-picked by the former President, despite his previous work. If you did not know, Wiley has a reputation for drawing vivid images of black women holding severed white peoples’ heads against the backdrop of colorful flowers.

If President Trump had picked someone like this, all hell would break lose.
