Conservative artist Jon McNaughton makes sure everyone who views his work knows where he stands politically. His depictions of former President Barack Obama show Obama burning the Constitution, playing Nero's fiddle as Washington burns, and presiding over a dystopian United States.
His latest work, The Masterpiece, features Trump as an artist about to reveal a painting.

McNaughton elaborated on the painting's meaning on his website:
"What does the future hold for America? President Trump’s last few years in office have been remarkable. He has changed the direction of this county economically, devastated ISIS, negotiated with countries on the world stage, and been a powerful voice for American ideals. It hasn’t been easy, as he has been blocked by both Republicans and Democrats, trashed by the media, and hunted by the deep state in an attempt to undermine his presidency. But, the 'painting' is not finished!"
As it turns out, putting Trump next to a canvas might've been a tad shortsighted, because resisters immediately began modifying it to hilarious results.

McNaughton caught attention earlier this year for showing Democratic leaders at the southern border, trampling the American flag while waving flags from Mexico, Central America, and South America.
"I prefer to paint pictures that I believe have relevance to what is going on in the world, that make a statement, that stand for something," McNoughton writes in the bio on his website. "I hope people will study the paintings and try to understand the deeper meaning."
Um...these seem pretty on the nose.
