On Monday, Barack and Michelle Obama's presidential portraits were unveiled at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in D.C.

Barack's was painted by Kehinde Wiley and Michelle's by Amy Sherald.

Of course, there was mixed reaction to the art — it's art. But Twitter came together to ignore art history, disregard thoughtful nuance, and make jokes about leaves and big hands. This is why we have the internet.
