Utah-based artist Jon McNaughton is creating a lot of buzz on social media after tweeting a picture of his painting, “Crossing the Swamp.”

The painting, which McNaughton posted on Twitter on Tuesday, replicates the famous artwork, “Washington Crossing the Delaware.” The replica depicts President Donald Trump and members of his administration crossing a swamp.

In the painting, Trump takes the place of President George Washington and includes: Vice President Pence carrying the U.S. flag, John Bolton clutching a gun, Mike Pompeo with a pair of binoculars, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley; Defense Secretary Jim Mattis; Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson; Attorney General Jeff Sessions; first lady Melania Trump; Secretary of State Pompeo; White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders; the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump; National Security Adviser Bolton; Kellyanne Conway; and Chief of Staff John Kelly. 

Some tweeters responded with observations about the painting. 

McNaughton has other paintings on his website depicting the Trump administration including “Make America Safe,” and “Respect the Flag.”
