    I don’t think that’s a unicorn. Not that there aren’t things about the painting that aren’t…fanciful, but unicorns might not be one of them.

    If the Pres had an image like that, then the rich would not have gotten the tax breaks. This is funny.

  • Blaque Freud

    Who can spot the Freudian and deconstructionist “sinister female genitalia”?

    Hint: its in the lower half of the painting and resembles another sinister body part.
