Donald Trump Released This Today and Got Trolled By The Internet In The Best Way Possible


Donald Trump’s presidential portrait was released today and the internet responded with this amazing mockery!

‘New Trump Portrait, first post-election, joins C-SPAN Presidents Collection. Painted by Chas Fagan’

Fagan continued:

‘One of the more challenging aspects of this specific portrait was President-Elect Trump’s eyes. In most photos, his eyes are in shadow and difficult to see, in part due to his distinctive brow line. But eyes are such a recognizable feature, and necessary to give a portrait warmth and personality, so I worked to give them a bit more prominence. The result is that we have a softer look into his face than we often get from public media photography.’

Fagan didn’t stop there:

‘Beyond following the campaign and the election like everyone else, my preparation entailed gathering up a collection of photographs that could be used as reference. You’d imagine that there should be countless images out there, but the reality is that public media photographs of candidates show frozen action moments. Whereas traditional portraits attempt to capture contemplative, relaxed moments. There are innumerable images of candidates seemingly contorted in expression or gesture. In an online advertisement for an upcoming interview with Mr. Trump I came across a small still image from video. It did not have much detail, but it happened to reveal a more relaxed expression. And that was the foundation for the painting’
