Obama's Photographer Just Trolled Donald Trump With a Photo of What a 'Cover Up' During the Obama Administration Looked Like
After President Donald Trump claimed he doesn't "do cover-ups" during a Rose Garden press conference Wednesday, numerous people reacted with rebuttals. But Pete Souza chose a comparative photo response instead.
Souza—who served as White House photographer during the Obama administration—took to social media to share one of his photos.
He captioned the image:
"This is what a cover up looked like during the Obama administration."

People remembered the scandals of President Barack Obama as well, like suit color choices and condiments.

This isn't the first time Souza offered a rebuttal to President Trump in photo form. And it does not look like he plans to stop soon either.
