RUSH: Folks, I don’t know how I’m gonna do this. They had the official portrait unveiling today of Barack Hussein O and Michelle (My Belle) O, and I said, “Oh. My.” And so did the audience, when one of these portraits was unveiled. They did it at the Smithsonian. Now, I remember when the official portrait of Bill and the witch — ah, sorry — Hillary Clinton were unveiled. They did it at the White House. They had it in one of the rooms in the White House.

George Bush welcomed the Clintons in and all of their buddies and smack-dab right there in the front row was Harvey Weinstein. I’ll never forget it. Weinstein was sitting there looking all proud and smug that he had made it in that high, that far. But the ceremony was in the White House. This ceremony today was over at the Smithsonian. And they took a break. I was watching on both Fox and CNN. CNN took a little break ’cause of course they had to have their four analysts — I’m sorry — anchor and three analysts weigh in on it. And what do you think we got? Some guy named Fallon. I don’t remember his first name. He’s a supposed CNN contributor, analyst.

Well, he didn’t cry, but it was (imitating Fallon), “Oh, my God, this is so wonderful, to have braininess back, to have intelligence, to have people we can be proud of, the people that can unite us.”

RUSH: Folks, I don’t know how I’m gonna do this. They had the official portrait unveiling today of Barack Hussein O and Michelle (My Belle) O, and I said, “Oh. My.” And so did the audience, when one of these portraits was unveiled. They did it at the Smithsonian. Now, I remember when the official portrait of Bill and the witch — ah, sorry — Hillary Clinton were unveiled. They did it at the White House. They had it in one of the rooms in the White House.

George Bush welcomed the Clintons in and all of their buddies and smack-dab right there in the front row was Harvey Weinstein. I’ll never forget it. Weinstein was sitting there looking all proud and smug that he had made it in that high, that far. But the ceremony was in the White House. This ceremony today was over at the Smithsonian. And they took a break. I was watching on both Fox and CNN. CNN took a little break ’cause of course they had to have their four analysts — I’m sorry — anchor and three analysts weigh in on it. And what do you think we got? Some guy named Fallon. I don’t remember his first name. He’s a supposed CNN contributor, analyst. Well, he didn’t cry, but it was (imitating Fallon), “Oh, my God, this is so wonderful, to have braininess back, to have intelligence, to have people we can be proud of, the people that can unite us.”

I knew it was gonna happen. So I was steeled for it. I was ready for it. But you people in the Drive-Bys are so predictable. Barack was sitting there with his head in the air like he always did, just above everything, while Michelle was going on and on and on about this artist that she found, who is a social justice artist, whatever that means. They unveiled a portrait and, you know, Brian, I wasn’t — you got it in there? All right. Flash it. All right. Here you go, folks. This is it. Untouched, undoctor. If you’re watching the Dittocam, there it is, that is the official portrait of Michelle Obama.

This is hard. I feel sorry. I mean, you zoom in on that, and you know what? I’m gonna let it speak for itself. I don’t need to characterize this. I really don’t. There’s not a thing I could add once you get a look at this. Well, I know the people that can’t see it are gonna have to find a way to see it, either become a subscriber at RushLimbaugh.com — that’s not a cheesy sales pitch — or find it some other way. We’ll link to it at RushLimbaugh.com, we’ll do that.

I can’t sit here and say the only way you can see this is become a member of the website. (interruption) That’s what I’m saying. I’m not gonna describe her, Mr. Snerdley. You’re trying to lure me into a trap here. You want me to set the media off. You want me blow them up so that I’ll be the lead story for next hour or two after I do it. I’m not going there. This thing speaks for itself.

I’ll just tell you, I’ve seen presidential portraits ’cause I have been in the White House. I’ve walked the hallways, and there’s a bunch of them there, and this don’t even get close to any of the — I mean, in style, I’m talking about. Forget artistic talent, just in style. I don’t know, what would you call that? To me, I’m not an artiste, and I’m not therefore a credentialed, qualified reviewer of art. Art, to me, is if I like it, fine. If I don’t, you know, I don’t see a whole lot of things that aren’t there.

Just like I’m not into poetry. Poetry is symbolism. Just tell me the way it is. You know, I don’t want to have to weed through a bunch of –. That’s why Shakespeare never really appealed. Shakespeare is philosophy in prose and I’d rather go read the translation of it, ’cause I’m just get in, get it, and get out. There’s some things I like the process of, but this to me looks — I don’t know, faded watercolors. It doesn’t look like — that’s it. I’m going no further. Other than to say I’m sorry.

Now, I haven’t lost my place. I’m gonna get to the Olympics and so forth. These guys talk about how wonderful it is to have Obama back, so wonderful, Barack and Michelle, so smart and they’re so sensitive, and they’re so nuanced. It didn’t matter what they said, didn’t matter what they did, it was the way they looked and the way they spoke and everybody healed.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: We’re gonna switch to the official portrait of Barack Hussein O. Go ahead and switch over there, Brian. (interruption) Look at that. I’m sorry. I don’t mean to be teasing or tempting those of you who do not have Dittocam service. But what in the world is that? Okay, I’ve gotta describe this. It’s Barack Obama sitting on what looks like a wooden throne without a high back, and he’s sitting on that throne as you might sit on yours. Except that this throne looks like it’s up against the ivy outfield wall at Wrigley Field.

It looks like he’s out there in the weeds. He’s in a forest, and the look on his… In my very unartistic estimation, it’s a better facial reproduction of Barack, but he doesn’t look happy. Is that right? (interruption) He looks kind of grim in the… (interruption) Is that right? Trying to look serious, studious and so forth. Michelle (My Belle) Obama doesn’t look happy, either, but that doesn’t mean much. These portraits people trying to look serious and very serious. But this… I’ll tell you one thing: These two portraits are gonna stand out in the White House. You’re not gonna be able to miss these on portrait row. I cannot… I just can’t.

I hope we did not pay for that. It doesn’t look like either of them.

Leave it to the most feckless POTUS in our history to have a portrait that looks like wallpaper…

I don’t care what Rush thinks, he’s about as much an art critic as I am (zero). But those two paintings to me are literally bizarre! 90% dress and 10% arms, face, hair for her and 90% leaves for his? WTH are they thinking?

I hope so too, but with these two moochers you’ll never know.

Trump should do just that: find the wallpaper that most closely matches the background of the BHO painting and paper the wall behind it so the whole painting is marginalized.

Doesn’t that remind you of a Snake in the grass?

There is something weird about the chair that Obama is sitting on.

Did they get the dunderhead in chief to paint it ? The corrupt, globalist criminal known as W Bush ?
It’s every bit as bad as his crappy, self indulgent piss poor sketches
