Here's the article.

And here's the painting:



In case you're wondering, I'm not thrilled with Trump being compared to Washington.

OMG!

Seriously, this fellow didn't realize the absurdity? Oh, wait, he's a Trump acolyte. Of course he didn't. Okay, what I see is that this really depicts the swamp creatures in their element. I think he thought it was "noble", but the reality is, these are the very swampiest of creatures in the swampiest of administrations - the most corrupt in history, challenging the worst in the world's pantheon of corruption. They really look as clueless as they are. Accidental honesty.

Some, just do not understand the Swamp. Nonetheless, the swamp is dead, must be climate change.

My first thought, as well - that the artist was lampooning the Trump Administration.

not to worry. Mr Trump compared himself to Pres Lincoln.

Mr Trump IS the textbook example of narcissistic personality disorder ... what else should one expect?
