Gotta say - I think that Obama portrait sucks.

Not in a Fox News commentator sort of way, but more in a it just looks dumb way.

Is there deeper meaning? Like is he what nature intended to be the president? Or (fill in art school theories here)?

Because it's really silly looking.

Yeah. Not an art expert, but something just seems "off" with the way it's composed. Like the background draws more attention than the subject.

I think the visual fight between the background and Obama’s in the foreground is part of the artist’s message. The flowers are from Kenya, Hawaii, and Illinois. There is a way in which Obama himself is overwhelmed by his personal background, so I rather like the imagery here, although the artistic style is not one that appeals to me aesthetically.

Not sure why it's not embedding: https://m.imgur.com/r/gifs/jncMW2k

It's how his face is drawn. It doesn't resemble him (unless that's the point). And what Moreta said helps it make sense to me a bit better. Instead of going "What's ugly Obama doing in front of my mom's plastic table cloth circa 1989?" I'm like "Ah, that makes sense."

They absolutely are, and BO drives them nuttier, but the artist absolutely has included a sperm "motif" in previous work. We can only hope Obama had this sort of reaction in mind when he chose the artist.

Win Butler was a weird choice to accompany her.

Such a lo fi production.

She's still amazing.

59? Damn. That's 6 years older than the still-fantastic Marisa Tomei.

I watched Spider-Man:Homecoming with my youngest over the weekend, and almost kicked her out of the house when her response to Aunt May’s appearance was “she’s old.”

Tomei aside, the film cast the character much younger than traditional portrayals. I really thought she was trolling me.

Keep in mind that your daughter does really believe that you, too, are quite old.

Altuve looks like the crazy dude from Scandal. To me, that makes it even better. Because that dude tortures and kills people for a living.

Considering Tamagotchi acts like a white girl who boned black dudes in college and hates herself for it so much that she went this route with her life, I disagree.

I follow her on Instagram and will occasionally watch her stories. Initially stories are on mute. Even when they are, her face, demeanor, and attitude is just palpable. You can tell there's a certain directed hated at whatever she's railing against. It's very sad. She's a twenty something and shouldn't be that bad all the time.

Absolutely.

Earlier today, I was just thinking about how my father used the word "demagogue" as if it was one of the worst possible insults. Thanks to the cheapening and degrading of public discourse, as well as social media, "demagoguery" is all around us.
