Well now there's a finger issue with with Obama yeah yeah I'm I'm looking at the finger to his a ring finger is on his middle finger. But then there's an extra fingers so it's really is drinking yeah I didn't really east CF tried to count the fingers of he's he's got I didn't see the sixth he yet because his thumb would be hit the way it is so I'm on the New York Times write down exactly so this legit I'm on the New York Times website and down his thumb would be. Tucked it what you got to see it it's annoying appear on the on the in the car wreck anyway so yes an extra finger. Hard these artists took a look what you've got the former presidents he's sitting in the chair thing. And these like surround about bush. Who just believes all over the place as well. I don't I don't why are there and why they're ruled that and then bush is Oliver's feet and then the one that Michelle Obama hey it doesn't look like her. And me.
