Artist’s Painting of Trump ‘Crossing the Swamp’ Causes Social Media Firestorm

American artist Jon McNaughton released his latest painting Tuesday of President Trump and his crew crossing the Washington, DC, swamp, and it has caused a variety of reactions on social media.

For a list of figures in the boat:

American artist Jon McNaughton, who is no stranger to controversy, tweeted a photo of his painting titled Crossing the Swamp, with the caption, ”Never give up. Never lower your light. Never stop till the swamp is dry.”

McNaughton’s painting depicts Trump standing with a lamp at the boat’s helm in homage to President George Washington standing at the helm the famous 1851 Emanuel Leutze painting titled Washington Crossing the Delaware.

  1. Now if he can do one that shows DJT and crew actually draining the swamp he will have a winner. At this point I'd settle for them dumping the swamp water into the Anacostia (for those that don't know, it is already polluted)
