    It was nice to hear from & see Michelle & Barack earlier. They were quite the reminder of just how far we’ve fallen. :rolleyes-41:

    Doesn't really look like Michelle, I wouldn't know it was her if she wasn't standing next to it

    Unfortunately it looks even less like her when she’s standing beside it.

    It looks like one of her girls, doesn't it? Very young. Barack's isn't terribly flattering, but portraits, I hear, are not supposed to be exact renditions of the sitter. If that's what they wanted, they'd just take a photo.

    Sam Stein said the same thing on Morning Joe today. It's a nice piece, but Michelle Obama?

    Not so much

    Knowing the reason makes it slightly less stupid, but it is still a crap portrait.
