Forgot to Read the Small Print......

"This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House."


  1. I just think you want to bad.

    Great job on this bit of art!

  2. I am not a shotgunner, but from what I have read in analysis of POTUS's position, stance, and hold, the original photo is totally BS. For them to think that they can photoshop a picture and expect that in a free country with the internet that he is going to escape derision is completely absurd. He is rapidly becoming as ridiculous as his VP. It reminds me of the spook in Harry Potter who is kept in a closet and when released tries to make itself into something that represents your worst fears. The way to fight it is to visualize it in some ridiculous manner. The President does that all by himself.

  3. Actually, if you look at his right hand (on the fore stock), it seems disproportionately long. The angle of the wrist is also not anatomically correct. That is not a product of this photoshop. It appears in the original photoshop distributed by the White House. The level of dishonesty of this administration is truly stunning. They could easily have taken the moron out somewhere and instructed him on how to hold a shotgun correctly and taken two minutes to make a more believable photograph. However, like everything they do, they were amateurish and ill-informed and produced what can only be called a ridiculous farce.
