The Obamas LOVE Their New Portraits—But Twitterites Have Created Some GENIUS Alternatives!

On Monday, the official portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama were unveiled at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. New York-based artist Kehinde Wiley and Baltimore artist Amy Sherald were selected to do the portraits of the former president and Mrs. Obama.
