Trevor Noah takes issue with Obama’s ‘weird’ White House portrayal

“I am not an art specialist. I don’t know the difference between Michelangelo and the other ninja turtles,” Noah joked on “The Daily Show” on Wednesday. “But what’s going on with Obama’s portrait? Like, why is he standing in a white void? ” I don’t understand. Looks like he got his picture taken at the DMV.

Noah said he disagreed with the paintings because they will hang in the White House forever, so “they should look like the White House.”

“Like look at Michelle,” he said. “She looks like a movie star painted by a French artist. Looks like Obama is out of printer toner for the background.
