Soon To Be Seen In Federal Buildings Nationwide

The Hill reports:

President Trump is seen smiling broadly in his official portrait that will hang in federal buildings across the country. The White House released the official photographs of Trump and Vice President Pence on Tuesday.

Trump’s grinning portrait is a departure from his usual stone-faced expression — his Twitter profile picture features a shot of himself with a stern look. “As a presidential candidate, he wanted to look dour, and vetoed any campaign imagery that so much as hinted at weakness, aides said,” the New York Times reported in May.

  • Comixbear

    I suspect that the smile is because he is in the middle of getting his numerous blowjobs from the Republican congressmen.

      Better than his stupid smirk, TBH

  • DreadPikathulhu

    I strongly encourage federal employees to misplace them regularly.

  • FAEN

    Revolting! When he smiles it looks completely fake.

  • Christopher
  • Blackfork

    Which will hang first? Trump or the picture?

    • FAEN

      According to Rand Paul Cheeto may not seek re-election in 2020. That would be nice but for now it’s just pie in the sky.

  • Keith D Plane

    I wonder how many people during the day will walk past his pic and give him and the Q-Tip the one finger salute?

    • FAEN

      There was a piece on Huff Post a week or two ago where they interviewed several Federal employees who held decently high up positions and why even with the best intentions they ended up quitting. All were horrified at their replacements who knew NOTHING!

  • Hardley

    How does someone manage to photoshop a soul into either of them?

    • Christopher

      By using an Instagram filter?

      Which was clearly not used for these photos.

  • SilasMarner

    The ONLY time I would wish for a crucifix to ward off evil is when I would pass these pictures.

  • Ernest Endevor

    I just hope no young scapegraces will deface them.

    • Robincho

      Bravo! SO much better than scofflaws…

  • Rex

    Released on Halloween, how appropriate.

    • Christopher

      Well, they are horrifying!

    I predict a precipitous rise in vandalism/graffiti.

    • Exatron

      I’ll be carrying a marker with me if I ever have to visit a federal building.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Can we change the headline to “Soon to be seen in Federal Prison?”

    • Menergy

      Before scrolling down from the lead photo of these two, I thought the thread title would read “seen in wanted photos in the post offices around the country”…👍😄

  • Mrs. Councillor Nugent

    Surely his portrait belongs on every Post Office wall, like Nixon’s in Pink Flamingos when Raymond’s there mailing something to Divine.

    • Christopher

      Does the Post Office still put up the FBI’s most wanted list?

      If so, he’ll fit nicely.

      • Exatron

        But does anybody actually want them?

  • GeneInSJ

    I’d be the one defacing them with magic markers.

  • Todd20036

    If I see that photo in my building, I’ll take it down, myself.

    • FAEN

      Make sure no ones watching matey.

  • FAEN
  • Christopher

    Put these on your front lawn tonight if you want a nice peaceful evening without Trick-Or-Treaters.

  • Fuck. I’ve already replotted my path to the restroom so that I never have to lay eyes on this bullshit at work.

    • FAEN

      Nice bow tie!

  • blackstar
    • FAEN

      Well not quite but we’re getting there?

    • kaydenpat

      Let it be so!

    • Gerry Fisher

      It’s like the Thanksgiving Day turkey as you’re placing it in the oven: it’s raw as all hell, it’s going to take a long while yet, but it’s done, the bird’s a goner.

  • DisqusD37

    How many lackeys did it take to glue Trump’s lips in place to expose his “teeth”?

  • Stogiebear

    Photos of the worst criminals in the country have always been hanged in Post Office buildings. May these two join them!

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Yay !! Dartboards in every Fed building !

    I’m casting Ted Knight and Michael Berryman right now.

  • Tawreos

    I can’t help but feel that both of them are showing teeth for the same reason a dog shows teeth. It is a warning.

    Where did they get THAT photo? The only faces I’ve seen hair furor make are these:

      • Karl Dubhe

        Let’s hope the time in office doesn’t go much over a year… 🙂

        • FAEN

          That would be nice but I’ll believe it when I see it 😊.

    • kaydenpat

      Republicans are crooks. That chart is astonishing.

      • Reality.Bites

        Nothing much happened under Ford or papa Bush. But when you have one who’s a crook or delusional or stupid, like Nixon, Reagan and Dubya, things get crooked.

        I shudder to imagine what would happen if they ever elected one who was crooked, delusional AND stupid.

        • kaydenpat

          Americans elected someone who is crooked, delusional and stupid. Huge sigh.

      • Steverino

        Always remember, Republicans / conservatives project and deflect. They wrap themselves up in the flag and patriotism, yet Nixon, Reagan, and Trump won their initial elections through colluding with hostile foreign governments. They claim to be the party of “personal responsibility” and “law and order,” but their administrations are clearly corrupt and criminal, as the chart illustrates.

        • kaydenpat

          True. They also wrap themselves up in religiosity. They justify all their awfulness as being justified by the Bible. Look how White Evangelicals have rallied around Trump who is as amoral as they come.

    • Todd20036

      All but 4 of them came from Nixon, W, and Reagan. All republicans. Funny that.
      And that number is about to increase thanks to Drumpf

    Whenever I see a photo of the stupid, bloated, orange bastard, I am immediately reminded of the expression, “The lights are on, but nobody’s home.”

      I just say under my breathe-“you’re a loser and a fucking moron” at every given opportunity.

  • Joe in PA

    I remember seeing Bush (W) in some federal buildings and cringing…this is so, SO much worse. 🙁

      It’s the traditional line on Lee, in fact, it’s why Lee’s despised by those who hold the “Nobel Lost Cause”, that Lee wasn’t fully engaged.

    When these treasonous criminal fucks are finally driven from office, I envision the joyful trashcanning/ripping up/stomping on/burning of these photo portraits throughout the fed govt.

  • Silver Badger

    I imagine these pictures will be out of spitting range. It may be a good idea to put towels on the floor underneath them, though.

    • OdieDenCO

      IDK. Americans might just take the crown for distance spitting from India.

  • VodkaAndPolitics

    I give a lot of credit to the artist… he did a pretty decent job polishing those two turds.

  • Jefe5084

    I don’t think “stone-faced” is accurate. His typical look is complete derpitude and hate.

  • another_steve

    I retired from my position in the federal government before I had to face the indignity of having portraits of Bush the Idiot from Texas and Dick Cheney greet me in the lobby every morning.

    My condolences to federal employees who today have to be greeted by the two monsters currently in the White House.

  • Halou

    Trump thinks that smiling is a sign of “weakness”?

    • The_Wretched

      He’s projecting again. His normal emotion set doesn’t include happy emotions so he wears them uncomfortably. And he views his personal discomfort as weakness. He’s a bully and only feels strong when others are groveling or praising him.

    • Snarky

      Must be something daddy Fred told him once. Since his entire adult life seems to be a reaction to the lack of love or whatever bad juju the old Klansman put on wee little Donnie.

      • RoFaWh

        From what I’ve read (not much, admittedly) it appears that a lot of Trump’s weirdness is inborn, not something you can change.

  • Karl Dubhe

    If you want an idea for some harmless vandalism, get a sheet or two of black cardstock paper, cut the paper so that it looks like a set of prison bars; attach bars to portrait.

    No harm done, but statement made.

    • Natty Enquirer

      You go first and we’ll visit you in Federal prison.

      • Karl Dubhe

        For some reason or another, I’m not that sure I’d be able to get across the border. Or that I’d want to at this point in time. 🙂

        Surely sticking bits of paper to a picture wouldn’t get you prison time. That’s utterly ridiculous.

    Correction: There is an update of the photos for all federal buildings.

  • Hunter M

    I’m going to have to start carrying a black sharpie with me when I visit federal buildings.

  • Jefe5084
  • John Ruff

    Lol. He looks so “weak” when he smiles.

  • kaydenpat

    So smiling and looking pleasant makes you look weak? Whatever.

  • TuuxKabin

    Time for the ol’ pea shooter practice. Been a long time.

  • Ninja0980


  • Bryan

    Smiling… for now.

  • AdamTh

    It has been photo-shopped, the nose should be longer.

  • Exatron

    Those things are going to be defaced with sharpies in record time.

  • Dazzer

    There’s more photoshopping in those two pictures than you’d find in 12 issues of Playboy.

    • Todd Allis

      Still can’t fix those smiles. Especially Pence’s… *shudder*

  • Davester

    I’m definitely getting a Ray Wise as Leland Palmer vibe.

    • The_Wretched

      Yes, there’s some Bob there.

  • ceeenbee

    He looks like a baby with gas.

  • Jmdintpa

    calling all vandals DO YOUR BEST ON IT BABY

  • The_Wretched

    It took them 9 months to come up with the images?

    I won’t call them pictures since they are not.

  • Bert_Bauer

    Poison Control Center will advise using the pictures to induce vomiting.

  • M Jackson

    Save the bldg. maintenance crew some time and energy later by not securing them too firmly to the wall.

  • I do not believe I could refrain from vandalizing them.

  • John

    They still look like a couple of psychopaths.

  • Tread

    At least the photographer accurately captured Pence’s fangs.

    • RoFaWh

      That was my thought too.

    • JAKvirginia

      Ooo… nice framing job!

  • Kissmagrits

    I get dibs on the spray paint concessions in the lobbies of federal buildings………

  • boobert

    The pence pic is ok, but moron really has no sense of humor at all. Have you ever seen him laugh? It’s always that sarcastic smirk .

    • RoFaWh

      Trump never smiles in an authentic way for a very simple reason: he’s an extremely unhappy man and has no reason to smile.

      One daughter who’s disowned him, two sons that look and act like genetic rejects, another daughter who gave him chlamydia, a young son who really ought to be removed from that toxic family environment by protective services, and a wife with ten pounds of silicone in front of her lungs.

      To cap it all off, he (Trump) is almost certainly profoundly impotent.

      I wouldn’t be very happy either.

      • JCF

        “he’s an extremely unhappy man and has no reason to smile”

        At LEAST since Daddy and Mommy f*cked him up (if not at conception).

  • kaboobie

    Soon to be making people projectile vomit in Federal buildings nationwide.

  • Treant

    I’d keep “accidentally!” stumbling into it until it “accidentally!” fell off the wall and the glass shattered. My Sharpie would also “accidentally!” uncap itself and somehow manage to bounce on it just right to write “Traitor!” on both images.

  • Chris Gardner

    Oh but wait, let’s talk about how we should vote for Jill Stein again because you know… those evil Democrats.

  • MusicBear88

    Smiling is so unnatural to both of them that it looks like they have facial strain from trying it.

  • Lizard

    I give ’em a day before they’re defaced. After the motherfucker is out of office one way or another, I give ’em another day before mobs tear them all down.

  • Snarky

    Beyond the obvious (the subject), something is seriously wrong with the Trump photo. Look at the highlights in Pence’s eyes, and how Trump has none. This makes Trump’s eyes look dead. Look at the darker shadow on one side of Pence’s face, which Trump lacks. Highlights on Pence’s forehead and cheeks, light and shadow sides on Pence’s neck whereas Trump’s lower face and neck are all mushy shadow, etc. Pence has a blue background while Trump has a wall and part of a picture frame.

    Pence sat for a portrait where the photographer set up lighting. Trump seems to have had his presidential portrait taken in a room with adequate window light.

    It’s one more way Trump is demonstrating how little he thinks of the office. He can’t even spare five minutes to sit down for a photographer in order to have a portrait that meets the bare technical minimum that most executive portraits have.

    • JCF

      The “smile doesn’t meet his eyes”, as the saying goes. “SAD!”

  • Vinnie NYC

    What is this ? Keeping Up with the Kim Jong-un Regime ?

  • RoFaWh

    That expression has all the sincerity of a snake telling a sparrow not to worry, he’s not on today’s menu. In one word, “pretend.”

    Probably learned that expression under Roy Cohn’s tutelage.

    More and more it becomes clear that Trump himself is really just a petty mobster with absolutely no honesty about anything. He’s just a criminal who’s never been brought to justice because his criminal activities are little more than bottom feeding. Until, that is, he got in bed with Putin.

  • KevInPDX

    I bet my state supervisor will not put up these pics. Barak and Joe will come down though 🙁 That’s too obvious a thumb in the eye move and he’s personally motivated to keep climbing.

    Wishing these were photos of postage stamps which would mean they’d been dead for five years. It would also mean that I could choose to buy any other stamp.

    Oh, gawd – when I go back to work in December, I will have to see those assfaces daily (fuck,fuck,fuck)

  • George Paul

    Have been a Federal employee for 28 years, and have never seen it take this long to get new administration portraits posted in our offices. Frankly, it was heartening to see the blank cardboard in the frames since January. Now, we’re getting two clown caricatures.

    For the love of God: Bring on the indictments!!!!
