Conservative painter Jon McNaughton released his latest MAGA-related work on Tuesday. Titled "The Masterpiece," it features Donald Trump unveiling a painting of some kind while seated in ... a cathedral? A studio with really high ceilings? We are not sure.
The painting is ostensibly dry, because a cloth has been draped over it, but it's also probably wet, because Trump is still holding the palette he used to make it. It's unclear what the painting depicts, exactly, but we assume that's not particularly important.
And that hand placement on the palette! That is really something. Is that his thumb? It certainly doesn't look like a thumb. Just some new material for your nightmares.

You can always count on McNaughton's paintings for some bizarre interpretation of American politics and history, but this one is particularly weird. It is also perfect meme fodder, and the Photoshops are rolling in.

Should you wish to make a cursed Photoshop yourself, there's a good template floating around. Can someone please edit out that dick-thumb?
