Now that Donald Trump has successfully elbowed his way to the front of a very long line to become President of the United States he's also likely to be a marked man insofar as protest painting is allowed to be seen and heard. He's going to need a much thicker skin than he's worn during the past year or more of this interminable election season. He's going to need to find the self-discipline to ignore (or maybe learn from) works such as that of Portland artist, Sarah Levy (below), who has rendered her personal distaste for the new president-elect by painting his portrait with her own menstrual blood.

|Though it may seem to be in poor taste to
put this portrait so close to the one just above,
you know you've hit the top when the famed
pizza chef Domenico Crolla does your face.
