The “Reagan-less” Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy minus Ronald Reagan

How interesting that so many world celebrities were included in the “Famous People Painting.” Why there is Bill Clinton. But don’t bother searching for President Ronald Reagan, as he was omitted! Who was a greater influence on world history? Was it Bill Clinton and the infamous blue dress, or Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism? Was it Bill Clinton who saved his own hide, or Ronald Reagan who saved millions of humans from the degradation of slavery? It’s okay, Margaret Thatcher WAS included. Bill Clinton has his beloved saxophone, but I have no idea why he is holding a peeled banana aloft. Or is that a cigar?
