The Republican Club Painting: Best Twitter Reactions & Memes

Trump's strange portrait with former GOP presidents has netizens in stitches

Yet McGahn's role in the White House was complicated by his being a chief witness in Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller's investigation into possible obstruction of justice.

McGahn has told associates he hopes to remain in the position until the midterm elections in November, two sources close to him told CNN. McGahn had overseen the judicial selection process for Brett Kavanaugh as well as dozens of federal judges.

Some people thought the painting might be mocking Trump Others thought it might be flattering to Trump But to be fair, who wouldn't want a portrait of themself hanging out with Lincoln in the White House?

McGahn fell out of favor with Trump in May 2017 over his handling of Mueller's appointment and Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation inquiry, a person familiar with the situation said.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Trump also did not back down from derisively nicknaming porn actress Stormy Daniels "horseface" hours earlier. "He's very talented and he's a very good man, but I don't want to say yet".

Cohen pleaded guilty in August to campaign finance violations alleging he coordinated with Trump on a hush-money scheme to buy the silence of Daniels and a Playboy model who alleged affairs.

New research shows more crashes in marijuana-legal states
Oftentimes, drivers who are tested for alcohol have other drugs in their system, not just marijuana, making it harder to isolate. A separate IIHS study looked at police-reported crashes from 2012 through 2016 in Colorado, Oregon and Washington.

And clearly, Trump liked the painting.

And he dismissed Cohen as "a PR person who did small legal work".

Andy Thomas, a self-taught artist based in Carthage, Missouri, even admitted that he depicted Trump as slimmer than he is in real life.

While Mr. Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani has regularly gone to bat for the president on cable news outlets, Emmett Flood, an attorney for President Clinton in the impeachment proceedings in the 1990s, is rumored to be the likely pick to replace McGahn. The turnover has already broken records fewer than two years into Trump's first term. He said, "I don't believe anybody has ever had this kind of impact". One is The Republican Club, which Thomas updated after the 2016 election to include Trump.

Should Democrats retake the House of Representatives, the White House counsel would bear the brunt of congressional subpoenas and investigations, according to The Times.
