Correct, the amount is minuscule but lets spend it elsewhere or spend it on the military who has been ravaged by the last administration, not the arts. If the President or First lady want a picture let them pay for it. If the government is going to pay for it then the government should choose the artist. After all we don't want to see the President painted as if he is seated on the head with a field of sperm infused flowers for a back ground. It wasn't even good for a laugh or as a bad joke.
