President Donald Trump spoke with 60 Minutes in an interview that aired on Sunday night, where he discussed a number of topics, including Russia, Defense Secretary James Mattis, North Korea, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation, among other topics.
However, one portion of the interview appeared to catch the internet’s eye—a painting of Trump with other Republican presidents that is hanging in the White House.
Now on 60 Minutes: There's less than a month until the mid-term elections. Hear what President Trump has to say about some of the issues that will likely be motivating voters at the ballot. pic.twitter.com/4WYnh3t0hy— 60 Minutes (@60Minutes) October 14, 2018
The Daily Beast reports that the painting, called “The Republican Club,” was created by Andy Thomas and given to the president by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.).
It shows the president at a table, drinking what appears to be Diet Coke, with other presidents such as Richard Nixon, Teddy Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, and others.
Some people online decided to “fix” the painting by making their own additions to it. Some of the changes included Russian President Vladimir Putin being put into the painting or trying to make Trump look “more realistic.”
One person even added the plaid shirt guy who got some attention at a Trump rally last month.

Others were just left in awe that such a thing was hanging in the White House.

Really? Is this for real? https://t.co/UCf6zLshpm— Gemma Grennan (@gemmagrennan) October 15, 2018
I have a feeling that 50 years from now this is going to be hanging in a museum and kids are going to look at it while learning about the collapse of American democracy. https://t.co/49FGVcrKQQ— gothy zbornak 🖤💚🐋 (@Kaiwhakamarie) October 15, 2018

If you look closely at the screenshot 60 Minutes shared, there is also a bowl of Starburst candy near the photo.
