That's not the beginning of a bad joke, but rather the subject of a recent painting by artist Andy Thomas called "The Republican Club" that's hanging in the White House.

The image created a stir on social media after it was spotted on a wall in the White House during a "60 Minutes" interview with Trump that aired Sunday night. In an interview with NBC News on Monday, Thomas said he was shocked to see his work in the White House.

Thomas said Trump called him a few weeks ago to praise the painting.

"It was a really gracious phone call and he had a kind voice," Thomas said, adding that while he knew the painting had been given to Trump, he had no idea until "60 Minutes" that he had actually hung it. "I was happily surprised it was hanging in the office there somewhere."

He added, "I suddenly felt too good to go do work out in the backyard."
I'm not an art critic but seems like a good job.

Trump doesn't drink at all, so I liked that litlle touch even if it wasn't Diet Coke.
