WH portraits of the Obamas won't be unveiled until Trump leaves office

Barack and Michelle Obama's presidential and first lady portraits will not be unveiled and hung in the White House until Donald Trump is out of office, a Tuesday morning report revealed.

The long-held tradition of current presidents attending the unveiling ceremony of the portraits of their predecessors and their wives during their first term will be skipped during this presidency due to the bitter feud between Trump and Obama, people familiar with the matter told NBC News.

If Trump wins a second term in November, Obama may have to wait until 2025 to have his portrait revealed and displayed in the White House among every U.S. president before him.

Obama, people familiar with the matter said, has no interest in participating in the post-presidency tradition as long as Trump is in office – and Trump has no qualms with snubbing a presidential custom.

Obama's picture has eyeholes cut out for spies, just like in the old Scooby-Doo cartoons, LOL!

Good. Trumps getting all the rats out himself. Once he's gone they'll need those pictures to keep the new rodents out. Seriously tho. Can you believe the arrogance of the Obamas?

Good, and isn't there a nearby outhouse that those Portraits could be hung in.

Real leadership in the WH would have saw fit for the sake of the country, to put differences aside and keep with tradition. I seem to recall that Obama policies ran counter to plenty that Bush did and Obama spoke extensively about what he saw as Bush blunders. Yet the two had a great exchange and partnership during and after political transition. Perhaps this was because they were able to disagree on substantive issues without being disagreeable. The current president spend his time whining and crying over the most trivial issues, making up total lies about his rivals, and can never seem to quite grasp the value of facts and truth when debating policy. No wonder the cry baby runs from the opportunity to engage substantively with anyone unless he has the bully pulpit.

President Trump knows Obama was an illegitimate president.

At least with Trump we know what he does and when he does it.With Obama issues will slowly leak out over a very long period of time.Was Obama intentionally destroying our country?

If not move a 'historic' one there just for the portraits and have it declared a historic building which can not be removed. Make it a double header since they have two portraits to hang!

Bush turned 'red coat' on the Republican party and that's why Obama and him got so 'cozy'.

12:05- That's because Bush and Obama were on the same team. Stop being a nitwit.

12:18 Yes he was! Google the 16 year plan to destroy America. 8 yrs. under Barack Obama and 8 yrs. under Hillary Clinton.

They are probably waiting to see if Obama goes to jail before they hang the portrait.

12:05 TRIVIAL ISSUES. I DON'T THINK SO. OBAMA TRIED TO BRING HIM DOWN ILLEGALLY. CROOKED LYING POS SHOULD BE JAILED FOR 10 YEARS MINIMUM AND THEN DEPORTED

Easy now, Obama is still looking to leave a legacy. He was last seen publicly at a Subaru dealership trying to get one.

Anon: 12:05 - Are you delusional? Obama will be remembered as the most corrupt presidents in American History. How can you blame Trump for not wanting to attend Obama's portrait ceremony after what Obama did to him. Obama spied on his administration and made up a phony Russian collusion story to sabotage Trump's first term in office. You say Trump makes up lies about his opponents? What a joke! There is no evidence Trump colluded with the Russians and there is tons of evidence Obama and his minions lied, framed and committed felonies against Trump and his administration. When all is said and done, what Obama did will make Watergate look like a jay-walking offense. Obama's portrait will represent nothing more than a stain on America's history.

It's really funny how the same rant about History and American tradition and are butt hurt about this. I can't think of one President in my lifetime that I did not think was a total JOKE and I have prospered as an adult since Nixon. Life is what YOU MAKE of it not what party is in power and who their figure head is. There has always been plenty of opportunity. I don't need my thoughts and beliefs justified by an Administration and represented by Government or the population at large. Just let me keep doing what I am doing while everyone is distracted by trivial nostalgia and party cheer leading and blaming everyone else for everything that has always been up to them. The whole thing is a game just like real estate and reality TV. This administration is OK they have just finally caught up and made it obvious what a Circus Shit Show it is.

Send them to Kenya where that worthless bastard was born

May 22, 2020 at 12:00 PM"

I am telling you he was not born in Kenya. His father is not even who he claimed. It just made for a good story how his grandparents were against it blah blah blah. I would bet anything he has no idea who his father is and either did his mother. She was a slut run around who couldn't wait to dump him off with grandparents who were failures as parent to her so had no business raising him. His blood definitely has ghetto hustler in it. Look how he lies constantly and about everything. He excels only at lying and BS'ing. The best way to find out his parentage is to run his DNA through the LE data base they use to match criminals to crimes and I bet his DNA would get all kinds of hits because his family is all criminals.

12:05 please you sound insane GWB didn't spy on B.O and cause B.O's family and associates years of their lives, lots of money etc. B.O 's portrait isn't worthy to be hung in the White House while the Trumps are there. It doen't belong in the White House at all because B.O who has never done one positive thing in his whole life was nothing but a putrid rank stain on the country.

Huh?

IIRC, thought I read Zero was the wrench in the gears on the portrait hanging, so not pushing forward at this time is just fine.

And with any luck by 2024 he may have been hung in person after the judicial system catches up with him. Let's be optimists.

Real leadership is what we finally now have in the White House 12:05. I agree with our great President, barack hussein obama and micheal obama' pictures have no business being displayed there.

Northwest Woodsman: Obozo has a public persona and his actual persona. My bet is that if you met him at a bar or other social setting, after two or three minutes of conversation, you would excuse yourself and get as far from him and his tranny pal Michael as possible. I’d be willing to bet that without his teleprompter he would present as a moron.

Burn them! Just like he burned the American people.

He couldn't even say 'yo y'all" without a teleprompter.

Obama tried to set up President Trump as a Russian asset and his stooges had him impeached. This is not "trivial"! That is called TREASON. You stupid Democrats always think your road is the high one, but your faces are covered in shit, and we all know better. 30 million dollars and over 3 years spent on phony Russia accusations. Also, learn proper sentence structure when trying to insult someone in writing, idiot.
