Has Michelle Obama’s portrait painter ever met or even SEEN Michelle Obama before…?

Her new painting doesn’t look like her at all

Michelle Obama is more than an undeniably beautiful and accomplished woman. She's our collective American mother and when she flourishes, we all do. Which is why I'm so angry on behalf of Mom and her new National Gallery portrait. It looks nothing like her.

I mean, I can't be the only one who thinks the portrait, which was just unveiled today, looks a bit like what a high school art student would have finished the night before handing it in?

People online are pointing out that Michelle's painting, which will hang in the National Portrait Gallery, doesn't look quite like her.

Here's her husband's, done by a different artist. It's undeniably better, though his hands are…large. Is that to scale? Whatever, it's better than the tiny-hand alternative we've got now.
