Say, have you seen the newly unveiled Official Portrait of former First Lady Michelle Obama?
That’s the wrong picture.
Here it is.
I know what you’re thinking.
That doesn’t look at all like Michelle Obama.
But it depends on how you look at it.
This portrait appears to capture not the real life Michelle, but rather Michelle Obama through the adoring eyes of the news media.
And in that respect, this portrait is the perfect image to immortalize Michelle.
When it comes to Michelle, the media did everything it could for eight years to convince us not to believe our lying eyes and instead take their word for it.
Michelle Obama, through the media’s eyes, was elegant, glamorous, refined – the very pinnacle of femininity and grace.
We saw this.
But through the magic of airbrushing and retouching, the media insisted Michelle was this.
As I said several months ago, the image of Michelle was a media creation from start to finish.
The woman who created this portrait put onto canvas the media-created Michelle – the very lie pushed on us in every soft-focus magazine cover, every televised puff piece and every breathless, fawning story ever written.
So why should we be surprised that the official portrait of Michelle Obama idealizes her when the media spent eight years doing the same thing?
The media tried to sell us on a fantasy version of Michelle.
And it is that Fantasy Michelle that is immortalized in this portrait.
