Earlier today Jon McNaughton released his newest abomination painting to the unsuspecting masses and, well, some of us at Pajiba had some thoughts. The following is a transcript of our Slack, earlier today.

Kate:

This is his best work

Emily:

Why are there so many dogs? And who’s the bald guy?

Also, what?

Kate:

Booker, I think?

Emily:

Why does he think that Cory Booker looks like bald Gerald Ford?

Genevieve:

Everyone looks like they’re having such a good time! Especially the dogs!

Kate:

I mean, who doesn’t want to play poker with some buds, and a bunch of dogs?

Emily:

You couldn’t even get the game finished though because you’d be stopping every five minutes to let one of the dogs out.

Kate:

I love how it’s supposed to show Trump above it all, but with his vantage, he wouldn’t even see Booker handing Pete the card.

Emily:

Oh shi*! I didn’t even notice Trump. Where are they? Why are they playing cards in a room decorated by a Trumper?

Genevieve:

If you showed me this painting in a vacuum, I absolutely would not pick up on it as a pro-Trump piece of artwork.

It’s just like, buds! Having a fun poker evening! With some dogs! Everyone’s happy and getting along! If anything, it reads very pro-Dem in a way. They’re all happy and cooperating even as their opponent glowers in the background.

Kate:

I’m confused by Beto and Bernie smoking stogies. Why just them?

Genevieve:

Honestly, Pete and Booker look like they’re making a love connection here. I’m only getting positive feelings off this image.

Emily:

Beto clearly has never smoked a cigar in his life, Harris would absolutely roast him for holding it so weird, and Warren would take that cigar and show him how it’s done.

Kate:

I mean, Kamala doesn’t look happy about Biden in her space, but I think she can handle it

Genevieve:

Yeah, that hand is still up in the “not great, but ok” space and not the “THAT’S MY PURSE I DON’T KNOW YOU” space.

Kate:

I feel like he’s never looked directly at Mayor Pete before, lest he’s concerned that you can catch homosexuality, because he didn’t do a good job with his face.

Genevieve:

He probably did the most flattering work on Biden and Bernie which, not a big surprise he’s used to doing flattering portraits of old white dudes.

Emily:

Wait, is he making the black guy and the gay guy cheaters? Because even for him, that seems like a lot.

Kate:

Emily. Do you know this man’s work?

Emily:

I do. That’s still pretty on the nose.

Kate:

Genevieve:


Why is Tim Meadows burning the constitution?

Kate:

Because Jesus told Jon McNaughton to paint it
