This Epic Painting of the Trump Administration is Breaking the Internet

Published

on

If you’ve been on social media over the last 24 hours, there’s a good chance you’ve seen this painting, titled “Crossing the Swamp”.

It depicts the Trump administration crossing the swamp of Washington DC at night, in the manner of the famous painting of Washington’s miraculous crossing of the Delaware River, shielded from the British by a perfectly timed fog, the appearance of which seems to have been nothing short of divine.

Here’s the original painting:

History.com explains why the crossing has become such an iconic event of the Revolutionary War:

During the American Revolution, Patriot General George Washington crosses the Delaware River with 5,400 troops, hoping to surprise a Hessian force celebrating Christmas at their winter quarters in Trenton, New Jersey. The unconventional attack came after several months of substantial defeats for Washington’s army that had resulted in the loss of New York City and other strategic points in the region….

The victory was not particularly significant from a strategic point of view, but news of Washington’s initiative raised the spirits of the American colonists, who previously feared that the Continental Army was incapable of victory.

So it seems fitting to depict the Trump administration in a similar pose, navigating the figurative swamp of Washington DC, originally constructed on a physical swap.

Trump’s victory has done so much to boost the morale of millions of Americans, who believe once again that their voices matter in Washington and that we have a commander-in-chief who genuinely cares about their best interests.

So when artist Jon McNaughton posted his “Crossing of the Swamp” painting on Twitter Tuesday, while not without plenty of mockers, others found depicting President Trump in this way was more than fitting.

“Today, Trump endeavors to cross the ‘swamp’ of Washington DC as he carries the light of truth, hope, and prosperity. The murky water of the deep state is laced with dangerous vermin, perfectly willing to destroy American prosperity for their personal ideologies and financial gain. The establishment Democrats, Never-Trumper-Republicans, Deep State, and Fake News Media will do all they can to stop the majority of the American people from succeeding,” McNaughton writes on his website, where he is selling prints of the painting.

The figures joining Trump on the boat are members of his administration as well as FLOTUS. From left to right: Nikki Haley, James Mattis, Ben Carson, President Trump, Jeff Sessions, Mike Pence, Melania Trump, Mike Pompeo, Sarah Sanders, Ivanka Trump, John Bolton, Kellyanne Conway, John Kelly.

There may have been another prominent Washington figure snuck in there, too, as one Twitter user pointed out:

Jokes aside, and there are plenty of jokes, while it might be a stretch to compare Trump’s presidency to Washington’s leadership during the Revolutionary war, there is no question that he is breaking norms and challenging the status quo in the swamp he’s promised to drain, and that his victory at the polls n 2016 was also nothing short of miraculous.

Like the mist that concealed Washington’s troops from the British, there was a perfectly timed series of events that catapulted Trump to victory, to the shock of much of the American people. And yet, here he is, a year and a half into his administration, and he’s shocked us countless times by actually following through on his campaign promises and leading a surprisingly conservative–and successful–administration.

Many on the left will never admit it, but Trump is bound to go down in history as a great President and strong leader.

Sarah Sanders Pressed to Resign or Be Fired by CNN Analyst

You know that things are looking desperate when television entertainers start telling the White House who to hire and fire.

Published

on

The media is having a heyday with the Mueller report, warping and wilting the 400+ pages to match whichever narrative they see fit. The President continues to tout the idea of “total exoneration”, complete with his “no obstruction” line, but even the most magnanimous of “news” providers are cautioning that this is likely an erroneous or misleading statement.  The Mueller report specifically and unequivocally states otherwise, but we aren’t talking about guilt anymore…we’re talking about political culpability. In that context, President Trump’s flippant, hand-wringing responses are more for the court of public opinion than the actual courts, and all of this is in response to the hyperbolic and partisan media hackery that we’ve been subjected to over the course of the last 12 hours, nay, the last 22 months. And the world of infotainment isn’t done yet, either, as CNN analysts are now making suggestions as to how Trump should rearrange his staff based on their findings in the Mueller report itself. CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report. In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything. The White House’s current culture of upheaval notwithstanding, April Ryan’s understanding of the situation on Pennsylvania Avenue can only be interpreted through the lens of her position within the Washington infotainment industry, and is not indicate of…

According to TMZ, President Trump is Now Homophobic

Maybe TMZ should stick to covering which sports star is bedding which Kardashian this week, and leave the politics to the professionals.

If you’re looking for a lesson in character assassination, the mainstream media is a willing and powerful mentor. This “infotainment” industry has been clawing at the door, so to speak, when it comes to Donald Trump’s personal beliefs.  They’ve imbued every syllable ever spoken by the President on the subject of immigration with some form of racist connotation, in an attempt to flood the media landscape with doubt and anger. It’s fear mongering, no doubt, but in a world dominated by social media’s “resistance” schtick, this is the sort of anger-fuel that sells. TMZ is no stranger to this, making their bread and butter by proposing scandalous and salacious rumors about The Kardashians for years.  Now, as they move into politics, (something no one asked for), they are bringing the same tabloid terror to the proceedings. For instance, they’ve already assumed that President Trump will let his alleged inner homophobic thoughts loose should he go head to head with 2020 democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg. Monday on “TMZ Live” founder Harvey Levin asked South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, what he will do when President Donald Trump “absolutely, no doubt” makes homophobia part of his campaign against Buttigieg if he secures the Democratic nomination. Levin said, “If you end up going head to head with Donald Trump, you are an openly gay man and I have absolutely no doubt in my mind given Donald Trump’s history that the campaign will get homophobic in some way. How are you going to deal with that? Buttigieg answered, “I’m kinda used to that by now. I’m from Indiana. I’m gay as a—I don’t know, think of something really gay, and that is how gay I am. So I’m used to bullying.” There has been no evidence presented of this hateful personality trait…
