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.

Save conservative media!

Michael Moore Lashes Out At Joe Biden For Reaching Out To ‘White Racist Redneck Votes In Michigan’

Published

Michael Moore

So it seems that, despite the fact he’ll be casting his vote for Joe Biden in November, radical leftist filmmaker — a term that should be used very loosely — Michael Moore is not exactly a big fan of the crusty, old white fellow’s election behavior. In fact, over the weekend, Biden accepted the endorsement of former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a member of the GOP, a move which left Moore extremely disappointed and upset with the former vice president. Enough so that he actually scolded him for trying to get “white racist redneck votes in Michigan.” via Daily Wire: “The Biden campaign, in an effort to convince Flint voters to stay home on Nov 3 and lose Michigan again, happily announced & embraced the endorsement of former Gov. Rick Snyder — the man who poisoned Flint’s water. 10,000 children [with] permanent brain damage,” Michael Moore tweeted. “Countless dead. Shame!” “So the Biden campaign thought getting a few more White racist redneck votes in Michigan was more important than getting the Black vote in Flint?” he later added. “Better to embrace the mass-poisoning Republican ex-Governor than worry about ‘those Black people?’ Are u nuts? Apologize & retract NOW.” https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302276793492221953 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302305541209894913 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302314275567009794 Ever since President Donald Trump’s rousing performance at the RNC, Moore has been warning Democrats not to get complacent. In late August, he shared a poll from Michigan that had Trump besting Biden by 2 points (47% to 45%), citing it as evidence that Democrats are not sounding the alarm enough. “Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW. Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden?” Moore said on Twitter. “Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan. Last week Trump pulled within 4 pts of Biden. Now in one poll Trump is AHEAD of Biden in MI…

Terry Crews Comments On Racist Comments Made By Nick Cannon: I Told Ya So

Published

on

Actor Terry Crews is slowly, but surely, becoming a conservative hero as he continues to take the Black Lives Matter movement and the political correctness of the progressive movement, refusing to give in to the madness and hatred being spewed out on the left. Crews has stated time and again that he’s not going to hate on white people, which is really what’s going on beneath the veneer of social justice BLM hides behind. It’s a refreshing stance to see these days to be sure. Recently, actor and TV host Nick Cannon was booted from ViaCom after making anti-Semitic and anti-white comments during a radio show. Crews has now responded to those comments and he couldn’t be more right. via The Daily Wire: “We have to include this white voice, this Hispanic voice, this Asian voice. We have to include it RIGHT NOW, because if we don’t […] it’s going to slip into something we are really not prepared for,” Crews posted, quoting himself. “Terry Crews ‘THE TALK interview’ June 16th, 2020,’” he added. https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283280895403864064 In reaction to Crews’ pointed tweet, one Twitter user told the actor “no black person” will have his back: “You going so hard against Nick Cannon, but when you fall, NO BLACK PERSON will have your back. Watch.” “When I was young, I was never afraid of the KKK,” Crews responded. “It was people like you. The threats, the intimidation, discouraging free thought, and ‘the insult of acting white.’ My heart breaks because your behavior only reveals you don’t know how powerful you are.” https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283293611208183808 Just to give you a little context for how dedicated Crews is to his position and how much wisdom and truth this man has, one of his tweets from the month of June says, “Defeating White Supremacy without White people…
