Obama’s White House Photographer Trolls Trump With A Beautiful Photo Series

It’s not the first time he’s gone after Trump.

Former White House photographer Pete Souza has attracted over 1.4 million followers on Instagram for his beautiful, candid photos of President Barack Obama during his time in the Oval Office. He’s also attracted a lot of attention for his sly way of trolling the current president.

While the Trump administration works hard to take insurance from over 20 million Americans, Souza has celebrated Obama’s achievements with a photo series on the Affordable Care Act. After a photo circulated of Pope Francis looking less than thrilled to see President Donald Trump last May, Souza posted a shot of Obama and the pope looking thrilled to see each other. And when first lady Melania Trump famously dodged her husband’s attempt to hold her hand, Souza posted a shot of the Obamas lovingly grasping hands.


Holding hands.

Last week, Souza was at it again. He posted a photo series entitled “Respect for Women” that features pictures of Obama interacting with women on the campaign trail and at important meetings. Souza’s photo series came out just after Trump sent out a series of vulgar tweets calling “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski “low I.Q.” and made the outlandish claim he saw her at a party bleeding from a face-lift.

When former Pittsburgh Steelers' center Mike Webster committed suicide in 2002, his death began to raise awareness of the brain damage experienced by NFL football players. A 2017 study found that 99% of deceased NFL players had a degenerative brain disease known as CTE. Only one out of 111 former football players had no sign of CTE. It turns out, some of the risks of traumatic brain injury experienced by heavily padded adults playing at a professional level also exist for kids with developing brains playing at a recreational level. The dangers might not be as intense as what the adults go through, but it can have some major life-long consequences.

A new PSA put out by the Concussion Legacy Foundation raises awareness of the dangers of tackle football on developing brains, comparing it to smoking. "Tackle football is like smoking. The younger I start, the longer I am exposed to danger. You wouldn't let me smoke. When should I start tackling?" a child's voice can be heard saying in the PSA as a mother lights up a cigarette for her young son.

On Tuesday morning, President Trump tweeted about some favorable economic numbers, claiming that annual household income is up, unemployment is low, and housing prices are high.

Now, just imagine how much better those numbers would be if the country wasn't mired in an economy-killing trade war with China, bleeding out trillion-dollar-a-year debts, and didn't suffer from chaotic leadership in the Oval Office?

At the end of tweet, came an odd sentence, "Impeach the Pres."

October is domestic violence awareness month and when most people think of domestic violence, they imagine mostly female victims. However, abuse of men happens as well – in both heterosexual and homosexual relationships. But some are taking it upon themselves to change all that.

At this point most reasonable people agree that climate change is a serious problem. And while a lot of good people are working on solutions, and we're all chipping in by using fewer plastic bags, it's also helpful to understand where the leading causes of the issue stem from. The list of 20 leading emitters of carbon dioxide by The Guardian newspaper does just that.

Before the release of "The Joker" there was a glut of stories in the media about the film's potential to incite violence.

The FBI issued a warning, saying the film may inspire violence from a group known as the Clowncels, a subgroup of the involuntarily celibate or Incel community.

Incels an online subculture who believe they are unable to attract a sexual partner. The American nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center describes them as "part of the online male supremacist ecosystem" that is included in its list of hate groups.
