Washington (eTruePolitics) – Putin, an atheist, as your God of creation? Trump’s base may not be happy.
Donald Trump, who has previously shown little interest in art, today unveiled “The Creation of Donald,” a painting that the current president said would replace the portrait of George Washington in the Oval Office. “It’s twice as big as the Washington one,” said Trump.
The oil on canvas painting was done by Mickey Angelo, a previously unknown artist currently living on Staten Island.
“Mickey did a helluva job, very original,” Trump commented. “I’ve never seen nothing like it.”
In an impromptu exchange, White House reporters challenged Trump’s assertion that the painting was “very original” pointing out that it closely resembled Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel fresco, the ‘Creation of Adam.’
“Sistein?” said Trump. “That sounds Jewish.”
