The Message Hidden In This Portrait Of Bill Clinton Is PERFECT

An artist who painted a portrait of former President Bill Clinton says there’s more to the piece than one might see at first blush.
Pennsylvania artist Nelson Shanks told the Philadelphia Daily News that he included a shadow of a blue dress in the 2006 portrait, which hangs in the National Portrait Gallery. It’s an apparent reference to the Monica Lewinsky scandal, with Shanks adding that the 42nd president is “probably the most famous liar of all time.”
“If you look at the left-hand side of it,” there’s a mantel in the Oval Office and “I put a shadow coming into the painting and it does two things,” the painter said.
“It actually literally represents a shadow from a blue dress that I had on a mannequin, that I had there while I was painting it, but not when he was there. It is also a bit of a metaphor in that it represents a shadow on the office he held, or on him.”

Shanks claimed that the Clintons have been lobbying the National Portrait Gallery to remove it, but a gallery spokeswoman denied that to the Daily News. Clinton reportedly chose Shanks to paint the portrait back in 2001.
A spokeswoman for the gallery confirmed to POLITICO that the Clintons have not contacted the museum about the painting, nor has the artist made any other statements to the museum regarding its content.
The portrait caused a bit of a stir when it was first unveiled nine years ago, as Clinton’s wedding ring was absent from his likeness.
In a 2001 article published by the Philadelphia Inquirer, Shanks said Clinton had personally selected him for the job after a vetting process run by the White House.



  1. And what did they find in the pocket of that blue dress?
    A wad of Bills.

  2. actually it was a "Junior Mossad" identity badge....

  3. How well they live. Vote every incumbent every politician out of office next election. None of them in office today deserve to be there they are all creeps and do not serve us.

  4. Do you realize that in most other countries, and all throughout history, leaders having mistresses has been seen as a sign of a powerful leader? Actually the American people are quite unique and bizarre in our belief that leaders having mistresses is a sign of weakness. We are very different in that way from other countries, historically.
    Very strange in that sense. In fact, we're downright bizarre.
    During Clintons impeachment, the rest of the world looked on in astonishment at our masochistic attempt to destroy a leader that they all regarded very favorably.

  5. His hand is forming the sign of the yes there are hidden meanings..

  6. The Carny Prince Bill

  7. If Slick Willie did not have Lucifer as his god he would have no god at all. Well perhaps with the exception of money and often unwilling women. I suppose I cannot call slick willie a rapist so I will not but several women have.

    Bill Clinton Is an Alleged Rapist, Too. Why Aren’t You Outraged About That?

    "The President of the United States who was credibly accused of rape, assault, and sexual harassment by numerous women over a period of many years. Forget Monica Lewinsky. I’m talking about Juanita Broaddrick, who recounted the incident to Dateline in 1999, saying ‘[Clinton] turned me around and started kissing me, and that was a real shock. I first pushed him away. I just told him ‘no.’ . . . He tries to kiss me again. He starts biting on my lip. . . . And then he forced me down on the bed. I just was very frightened. I tried to get away from him. I told him ‘no.’ . . . He wouldn’t listen to

  8. Slick willie was not a respectable president with a mistress. Slick Willie was an abuser of woman who was good on "woman's issues"; he was and is a liar and a fraud and the perfect foil for his Bush mentors.

  9. I love it when artists are able to slip hidden meaning into their work. My favorite is when the Bank of America headquarters building was finished in San Francisco in 1969, there was a large black granite sculpture placed in the plaza in front of the building. Within twenty minutes of the completion of the dedication ceremony someone had taped a piece of paper to the sculpture that said "banker's heart" (which it does resemble) and it has been known by that name ever since. Touche'

  10. "Philandering is as common as rain drops falling."

    Yes and judging by the Bush/clinton dynasty RULING this poor country, so is selling out your country.

    A curse on both their houses.
