Not much of an art critic, but it seems like the presidents hands are too large.

OK, this is from 'The Onion', right? Hilarious!

Right??


Wait. What?




Never mind.

Stephen Colbert did a report on this fantastically subtle, multi-layered tour de farce and its creator. It's worth a watch.

That's one of my top 200 favorite Colberts (way too hard to pick one).

Totally disgraceful just like the rest of McNoughton's rubbish.

Did I see Putin in the background ?

So this guy specializes in fictional art, like Smith "translating" with the plates sitting in front of him, and stuff like this one.

He's got talent as an artist.
Not so much with reality or compassion.

Oh, that's the funniest McNoughton pic yet. Yes, for the right price, McNoughton can give you normal hands and take 100 lbs off you too!

In my opinion, McNoughton draws cheesy political cartoons.

I prefer Steve Benson's work.

Ugh, now Trump is Adam? Adam-God-Trump? With Trump's heel bruising the head of the serpent?

Gross.

A snake?

Oh... I thought that was Trump's tail.

More fitting as a tail don't you think?

Have to wonder if this artist is positioning himself to to be hired as the Michelangelo of LDS Inc, with such things as interior temple murals.

Perhaps they will contract him to do the ceiling of the Mormon Tabernacle Chapel.

Trump is crushing the serpent's head, which makes him the Messiah, not Adam. Total BS.

This painting fits a white christian nationalist narrative. Before you flame me, stop, look, and think.

Who is supposedly "forgotten?"

What does this have to with Trump?

Why is religion a factor?

Is it not possible to be a patriotic American and oppose pseudo-Christian hate filled religious dogma, religous intolerance, and racism?

P.S.: I don't think the black snake is supposed to be Vlad.

But never let the facts on his fingers trump his own claims on the matter. The truth is that his hands are far too big in the painting in question, as the actual measurable facts have borne out:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/08/05/yes-donald-trumps-hands-are-actually-pretty-small/


As an artist who has drawn tons of hands over the course of my professional career, I think I can speak from experience on this subject. As a matter of course, I frequently draw the self-unaware Trump's hands actual size, as seen here:

https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/82f5654b1d32d03f83458b0f30c9722d75d0e503/c=0-0-3598-2033&r=x1683&c=3200x1680/local/-/media/2017/02/13/Phoenix/Phoenix/636225715172722449-Benson-Trump-Caesar-02-13-17.jpg


By the way, Trump knows his hands are abnormally small because he's been obsessively complaining about criticism of his puny hands for years. He's one the most touchy, insecure people I've ever seen, hands down:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vanityfair.com/news/photos/2016/02/donald-trumps-short-fingers-a-historical-analysis/amp

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vanityfair.com/style/2017/09/donald-trump-small-hands-hurricane-relief/amp


And if Trump feels his anti-hand critics deserve the finger, sorry Donald, but your own photos point out that it's just too hard to see:
