For a brief time on Thursday, a portrait of Russian President Vladimir Putin was on display in Colorado’s Capitol building in a space designated for President Trump’s portrait.
The portrait of Putin was reportedly put up on an easel on Capitol’s wall of presidential portraits by an unknown prankster. It was later taken down by a tour guide, according to Denver NBC affiliate, 9News.
Before the portrait was removed, however, Colorado State Sen. Steve Fenberg (D) shared a photo of the display on Twitter.
Now see that is the kind of prank I can support.
Nobody got hurt, nothing was damaged, and an important point was driven home.
I actually think that when they paint Trump’s official presidential portrait they should include a shadow clearly depicting Putin lurking behind him.
You know, for historical accuracy.
