Viral Portrait of Trump ‘Crossing the Swamp’ Sets off Internet Firestorm

Painter Jon McNaughton, a Utah resident with a record of creating artwork about President Donald Trump and his administration that has already brought him praise from Trump supporters and angry criticism from Trump opponents, has unveiled his latest piece. . .

McNaughton’s updated version of that iconic image shows Trump and his inner circle aboard a rickety boat, navigating a crossing of the Washington “swamp.”

According to McNaughton’s website, the other figures are, from left: United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, Defense Secretary James Mattis, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, first daughter Ivanka Trump, National Security Advisor John Bolton, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway (she’s hard to see), and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
