Ex White House photographer took to Instagram to show what Obama really did in the dining room
The former head of photographers of the White House refuted Trump again after the latter said that Obama spent all his time watching basketball in his private dining room.
President Donald Trump apparently likes to give guided tours to visitors through the White House, where he enjoys giving impromptu talks, and on one occasion stated without foundation that his predecessor watched many sports from the private dining room of the Oval Office, adding that when he arrived at the White House in 2017 the dining room was "in disrepair" and had a hole in the wall.
Pete Souza was the shadow of Barack Obama during his eight years as president of the United States. With a camera in hand, the photographer never needed to use words for the world to know the different facets of the former president.

The first photograph is looking down the short hallway from the Oval Office to President Obama’s private dining room (he’s in the midst of his weekly lunch with Vice President Biden). Comrade Minus claims that when he came into office, the dining room was in “rough shape and had a hole in the wall” (see Josh Dawsey’s article in The Washington Post). “He (Obama) just sat in here and watched basketball all day,” according to minus. Click through the pictures to see what President Obama actually did in the dining room with a variety of people: he had lunch. If you spot the hole in the wall, you win a free trip to visit the medieval concrete wall in Mexico.
Now, Souza also does not need to resort to any text to criticize Trump's mandate. In his account of one million followers on Instagram, Souza uses the images taken during Obama's term to criticize every action of the current American tycoon.
It all started when Trump signed an executive order banning all people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. At the time, Souza shared a photograph of Obama laughing with a Muslim minor in Malaysia.
The American tycoon did not let the media photograph him while playing golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and his team covered the room where the press was with black plastic.
Souza criticizes this secrecy of Trump with an image of Obama playing golf with the British Prime Minister, David Cameron.
Without such a direct relationship with the present, Souza has also denounced the lack of women in the Trump government. On his Instagram, he published an Obama meeting with his three top advisors. All three were women.
The most controversial decisions of Trump have filled the news outlets with criticism to his management all around the world, but, until now, nobody had obtained a so subtle critic through photographs. Sometimes a picture is really worth a thousand words.
In the meantime, Donald Trump is "very angry" for the book of his former White House aide, Cliff Sims, "Vipers Team: My 500 Extraordinary Days in Trump's White House," which was published on Tuesday, January 29.
Although his advisors told him to ignore the book, Trump could not resist attacking Sims this morning, which has led to a chain of events that have made things worse for Trump.
