Pete Souza, Barack Obama’s Photographer, Has Been Trolling Donald Trump For Weeks

As Chief Official White House Photographer during the Obama administration, Pete Souza took up to 20,000 photos a week, a vast trove of material which he is now using to subtly troll Donald Trump.

The 62-year-old has spent the last couple of months posting thoughtfully chosen pictures on his Instagram account that juxtapose the previous incumbent’s style with the current President.

The result is some of the most authoritative and professional shade ever directed at anyone.

2) On the difference between the make-up of the Trump and Obama administrations.

In January, a picture of Trump signing an executive order on abortion surrounded by men went viral for obvious reasons.

Trump and Trudeau differ wildly in a number of areas, not least their polar opposite stances on immigration.

Their first encounter at the White House was amicable, but hardly warm and brought into sharp focus the weird handshake style of the US President.

Contrast that meeting with this…

Trump has been a frequent visitor to his “Winter White House” at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, even holding impromptu high-level security meetings in the public dining room.

Unsurprisingly this drew sharp criticism

Souza had this to say.

Citing privacy and national security concerns, the Trump administration put an end to Obama’s policy of publicly releasing the White House visitor logs in the name of transparency.

Last week this happened…

Trump was heavily criticised for appearing to refuse German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hand during their first official encounter.
