Americans mock Obama portrait with side-splitting memes



A day after the unveiling of the official portrait of former President Obama, who is depicted sitting in a chair positioned amid a wall of bushes, Twitter is having an amusing laugh at the expense of the 44th president’s portrayal.

The social-networking site exploded Tuesday with humorous memes inspired by the portrait that’s set to be displayed at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.

In one popular meme depicting the portraits of a dozen U.S. presidents, Twitter users noted that “one of these things doesn’t look like the other”:


Another silly meme played on actor and director Clint Eastwood’s speech to an empty chair at the 2012 Republican National Convention.

During his famous speech, Eastwood pointed to the chair and told the crowd, “So I’ve got Mr. Obama sitting here.” He then discussed issues such as Guantanamo Bay and Afghanistan with “Obama.”

Obama was apparently surprised to learn the empty chair surfaced again in his official portrait:


Another Twitter post noted that Obama’s official portrait is reminiscent of the moment Homer Simpson began shrinking into the hedges on “The Simpsons.”



One post appeared to show the former president being devoured by the giant, flowering bush.


And this may be the real reason Obama was in those bushes …

Here he is, spying on the Trump campaign:
