Obama’s Portrait Artist Known for Painting Blacks Beheading Whites, Dems Silent [PHOTOS]

Barack Obama’s presidential portrait was unveiled on Monday to mixed reactions.

The artist behind the painting is known for depicting blacks beheading whites.

From Daily Wire:

The artist who painted former President Barack Obama’s presidential portrait, unveiled on Monday at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, has a disturbing pattern of painting violent beheadings of white people.

Kehinde Wiley, who is known for primarily painting black people, was chosen late last year to paint Obama’s official portrait for the Smithsonian. When asked by the British newspaper, The Guardian, about Obama contacting him to do the portrait, Wiley gave an awkward response.

“I can’t,” Wiley said. “I’d like to. I can tell you that I’m the first African-American artist to create the portrait of the president. It’s a huge responsibility.”

In a ceremony on Monday, the former president and first lady were joined by a crowd of invited guests which included Michelle’s mother and former Vice President, Joe Biden.

Reactions:

This is too perfect, isn’t it?

What are the chances the MSM makes a fuss over the artist’s past? Imagine if the roles were reversed.
