Prankster Puts Putin Portrait Where President Trump’s Should Be

Insulting and silly, this 'joke' inside Colorado's State Capitol is just more of the same when it comes to liberal antics

Late last week, someone thought it would be funny to put a portrait of Russian President Vladimir Putin where President Donald Trump’s should be, in Colorado’s Capitol building — but it wasn’t really funny at all.

Progressives are often insulting in their obsession with the notion of nefarious ties between American and Russian leaders — pointedly ignoring the clear successes of the current administration — and this silly prank is just more of the same.

The group Colorado Citizens for Culture is responsible for collecting donations so that presidential portraits may be commissioned for display in the halls of that state’s Capitol in Denver, Yahoo News and other outlets reported.

While President Donald Trump is the next to have his image displayed, so far the group hasn’t raised the $10,000 required for a portrait of Trump, according to NBC affiliate 9News in Denver.

Colorado Citizens for Culture leader Jay Sellers said that enough money was raised within four months to commission portraits of former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
