People Are Putting Their Own Spin On Trump's Newly Released White House Portrait
This is what the internet was made for.
Amid turmoil surrounding the federal investigation of Russian collusion in the Trump White House, the administration recently announced the release of official portraits for both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Both portraits feature both the president and vice president bearing curiously large smiles.
Sources in an early New York Times story on Trump’s demeanor stated that Trump’s ideal pose was one similar to that of the perpetually scowling Winston Churchill, but this portrait bears little resemblance to the former U.K. prime minister.
While Trump’s mischievous grin has already become conversation fodder, people have been more than willing to put more “contextual” spins on the photos, modifying them to match the dire legal straits the White House faces.
Produced by the U.S. Government Publishing Office, the new official portraits will replace those of former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden in various federal facilities throughout the country.
Prints of the portraits will also be available for purchase for $10-$15.
