I see what he's doing, and it's brilliant. He's found a way to win the votes of two previously completely disparate voting cohorts. Two groups that have never before been unified by one candidate. This guy is thinking several chess moves ahead:
Step 1: Anti-gay rhetooric to bend the ear of the white hillbilly/NRA voters
Step 2: He associates prisons with gayness
Step 3: He terrifies the dumb white hicks to believing that prison will turn you gay
Step 4: Leads campaign to close prisons
Step 5; Simultaneously wins the approval of white Christian southerers and urban blacks
Step 6: President
That's some Frank Underwood level strategizing there!
It just belies this artist's arrogance (an arrogant artist? what a concept!) I mean injecting a personal insult into a commissioned work of art? Who does this guy think he is, Michelangelo vs. Biagio de Cesena? This wasn't trolling, it's just his sad attempt to make the portrait of a president all about himself.
