Obama’s photographer perfectly shades Trump after Merkel press conference disaster
Attention, internet: The newest edition of our favorite series of presidential shade has arrived, and it’s probably the only good thing that came from today’s press conference.
In case you’ve been missing out, Barack Obama’s official White House photographer Pete Souza has turned his Instagram into the universe’s premiere source for Donald Trump shade. This week between #MicrowaveGate and a painful press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel Souza’s content has been extra shady (and we’re here for it).
After the president refused to shake Merkel’s hand and the chancellor made horrified expressions throughout the pair’s press conference, Souza decided to reminisce on the kinder, less cringeworthy days of yesteryear when Obama was still our commander-in-chief.
Here’s a picture of Donald Trump and Merkel from their meeting today:
And here’s a photo Souza posted from the first time Obama and Merkel met:
And another he posted from 2011 just for good measure:
The shade is real.
