Obamas unveil their official portraits as former president compliments artist for capturing Michelle’s ‘hotness’ while Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks applaud

  • Former President Barack Obama’s portrait was created by artist Kehinde Wiley
  • Michelle Obama’s portrait painted by Amy Sherald was unveiled first at the event
  • The new paintings of the former president and first lady will be hung in the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
  • Michelle Obama noted that she had a ‘kind of sister-girl connection’ with Sherald
  • Obama joked that he had asked Wiley to make his hair less gray in his portrait

Former President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were joined by a who’s who of their administration – and some Hollywood types too – for the official unveiling of their portraits at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.

‘That’s pretty sharp,’ the ex-president said as he and artist Kehinde Wiley pulled the cloth off Obama’s portrait, which showed the Democrat in a tie-less get-up, seated, surrounded by a floral motif.

Michelle Obama’s portrait, created by Amy Sherald, had been unveiled first, and the former president quickly applauded the artist for capturing the ‘hotness of the woman that I love.’

Russian comedians prank phone call US representative Adam Schiff

The fact that Schiff fell for this prank is enough that he should step down!

In this audio posted on YouTube by Russian pranksters, Rep. Adam Schiff can be heard discussing claims that the FSB has naked pictures of President Trump. Assume these Russians are involved with intelligence operations.

The Daily Mail reports that Schiff sent his staff to try and collect “classified materials for the FBI” after the prank callers told him Putin has naked blackmail pictures of President Trump.

Schiff can be heard discussing the Russia investigation with a man who claimed to be Andriy Parubiy, the chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament.

The call, made a year ago, was reportedly from two Russian comedians nicknamed ‘Vovan’ and ‘Lexus’ who have become notorious for their phony calls to high-ranking American officials and celebrities, including UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Elton John. The call was first reported in The Atlantic’s Jan/Feb 2018 issue, where a spokesman for Schiff said: “Before agreeing to take the call, and immediately following it, the committee informed appropriate law-enforcement and security personnel of the conversation, and of our belief that it was probably bogus.”

“There were pictures of naked Trump,” one of the pranksters told Schiff, explaining that they were obtained by Putin’s goddaughter.

Schiff asks: “And the materials you can provide to the committee and to the FBI, would they corroborate this allegation? … So you have recordings… where they’re discussing the compromising material?”

“Obviously we would welcome the chance to get copies of those recordings,” Schiff tells them. “So we will try to work with the FBI to try to figure out how we can take copies of those… I’ll be in touch with the FBI about this, and we’ll make arrangements with your staff. I think it would be best to provide these materials to both our committee and the FBI. We’ll make arrangements between my staff and yours on how to facilitate that.”

 
 
 

I think it was Will Rogers who said “there is a little truth in all humor”

How true….

Just a little turtle humor 😉

YOU’VE GOT TO LOVE THIS RANCHER’S OUTLOOK AND COMMON SENSE APPROACH TO LIFE……
While suturing up a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand had been caught in the gate while working his cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama, and his being our president.
The  old rancher said, “Well, ya know, Obama is just a Post Turtle.”
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked, “What’s a “Post Turtle?”
The old rancher said, “Well, when you’re driving down a country road, and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a post turtle.”
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he sure as heck ain’t goin’ anywhere, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there in the first place.”
