News Headline: “Artist reimagines Donald Trump as a liberal, tattooed hipster.”

It was six months ago that QT commissioned a painting of Trump by Tim Patch, better known as Pricasso, the Australian artist who paints with his penis.
The painting is displayed again here.
Or as Pricasso wrote to QT after completing the work:
“It was difficult in the hotel room. Now I have to wash the carpet a bit.”
QT likes to consider the artwork from time to time, keeping in mind:
When Donald Trump is done, we’ll have to wash the national carpet a bit.
