    NO NEED FOR FACTS here but just in case, I HAD THIS PINNED ready to go. The usuals never disappoint.

    SNOPES, says a grain of truth. As a remember, I'm getting old, perhaps this isn't precise. THE CLINTONS were given a couple 18th century reproductions, as I remember a couple of chairs and a table, maybe a side chest. They thought they were given to them. (People can do that--but they have to be logged, assessed etc. maybe paid for, many rules) These in particular were determined to be given to the WH, so the the CLINTONS BOUGHT them. You know, bought them from you and I.

    T'S FALSE
    X MOSTLY FALSE
    The Clintons were not "forced" to return any gifts, they were not found to have "stolen" any items, and the aggregate value of the objects in question was much less than $200,000.

    This Nancy Spector is an embarrassment to The Guggenheim.

    From the OP:

    It is common for presidents and first ladies to borrow major works of art to decorate the Oval Office, the first family’s residence and various rooms at the White House. The Smithsonian loaned the Kennedys a Eugene Delacroix painting, “The Smoker.” The Obamas preferred abstract art, choosing works by Mark Rothko and Jasper Johns.

    So they did remove stuff from the White House, "much less than $200,000" indeed.

    I agree. I don't see Trump a connoisseur of Van Gogh

    I see Donald as more a Georgia O'Keeffe fan.

    I bet he can sit and stare at an O'Keeffe all day long

    Hell, watching Obama swirl around the toilet on a daily basis seems like a great gift to me.

    NO, WE JUST DON'T LIKE HIM! This is not a difficult concept. Has ZERO to do with our station in life. The boy is just contemptible---at so many levels. Pictures like the above and the one below just make it easier to 'justify'.

    (Imagine for a nanosecond, if there was a picture of the 'black one' out there in his bathrobe posturing like this). Oooooo....

    None. The rules are complex as hell, and they openly disclosed exactly what gifts they were taking before they were "busted." Based on their voluntary disclosure, they were asked to return some of it - and they did.
