Goya's Black Paintings

i cannot help but be reminded of the depravity of the Trump administration and his GOP enablers, when I look at Goya's Black Paintings

"Saturn Devouring His Son" as Trump himself



"Men Reading" as GOP Senators reading a proposed Dem bill

"A Pilgrimage to San Isidro" as Trump's voters
