Oh, Pete Souza — how we love thee. The previous Obama White Home photographer is a dwelling legend at this level for locating probably the most artful methods to throw shade on the present POTUS. Every time Donald Trump majorly botches one thing, Souza responds with completely timed Instagram posts that present former President Barack Obama dealing with an analogous state of affairs with rather more grace and poise.
Souza’s newest Trump takedown got here because of the president’s current cringe-worthy tweet about Time journal. In case you missed it, on Nov. 24, Trump tweeted out of nowhere claiming that he apparently turned down Time‘s anticipated supply to cowl the journal because the “Individual of the Yr.” Time was fast to fireside again and name the POTUS out for mendacity, explaining that Trump was “incorrect” about how the publication chooses the individual for that annual honor. Are you able to say “awkward”?!
Naturally, Souza could not let the unusual state of affairs go unnoticed (or, fairly, untrolled), so he shared a bit reminder of Obama’s beautiful number of Time journal covers, captioning the collage, “Somebody has a variety of catching as much as do.”
The publish showcased 15 of Obama’s covers — one in every of which pictured former FLOTUS Michelle Obama. As quickly as Souza reposted the collage, lots of his followers flooded it with on-level feedback like “This degree of petty is sort of excessive! I prefer it!” and “The shade is so actual.” We could not agree extra, and man, are we right here for it! Somebody get this man a freakin’ medal for his efforts. He really is the hero all of us want.
