Under President Donald Trump’s somber gaze, a majestic bald eagle soars toward the dawn of a new America. Clutched in the eagle’s talons is the star-spangled banner, fluttering with the promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

With speakers like Sebastian Gorka and Boy Wonder Don Jr., this year’s CPAC lineup is feeling a little lackluster. But if the headliners don’t wow you, at least you’ll have the chance to buy this awe-inspiring painting of Trump. It’s what every red-blooded American patriot needs in their living room, and it’ll be sure to render your liberal niece speechless next Thanksgiving!
Julian Raven, who painted the work above, isn’t the only MAGArtist cranking out Trump-as-deity paintings, of course. Jon McNaughton’s artwork, which is equally reverent of POTUS, has gone viral too. And, folks, it’s some powerful stuff:
My new painting – “Crossing the Swamp”
“Never give up. Never lower your light.
Never stop till the swamp is dry.” – Jon McNaughton

My new painting, "Teach a Man a Fish." — "You can give a man a pole. It doesn't mean he will use it." —JonMcNaughton.com pic.twitter.com/yEvMO8sBZo

My new painting – "Respect the Flag."
When we don't respect the flag enough to fight for it, we will be the weakest generation. – Jon McNaughton pic.twitter.com/Z3hVOa6CMn

You see that? That’s our President mournfully restoring our embattled flag by, uh, rubbing another piece of cloth on it.
And of course we can’t forget Ben Garrison’s cruder yet no less deifying vision of Trump greatness:

Indiana was a critical state for Cruz, but instead Trump won a decisive victory. It was a slam dunk. Cruz might have done better had he not come across as desperate. Calling a basketball hoop a ‘basketball ring’ didn’t help in a state known for its basketball. Glenn Beck’s shrill appeal to God only made him come across as more of a nut. His behavior could not have helped Cruz. Take a second and check out my patreon, my goal is to be a full-time cartoonist!

Just look at those beefy biceps. They’re ready to pound liberal snowflakes with the full force of Trump’s facts and logic.
The reality is that Trump is, famously, a draft-dodger who’s raised a countless number of red flags with his foreign business dealings — all while living on a steady diet of Big Macs.
But for these artists and the rest of the MAGA crowd, it’s not about the real Trump. Trump is a symbol, and that symbol is a PC-smashing, flag-respecting, sixpack-having golden god who’s here to save America from the creeping tentacles of socialism and immigration.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Trump not only owns one of these paintings himself, but has it on proud display in the White House.
