Former President Obama’s White House photographer on Saturday taunted President Trump, sharing a series of 15 Time magazine covers featuring the Obamas.
Pete Souza shared the compilation of photos, which was originally posted by an account named @michelleandbarack,” on Instagram, with the caption: “Someone has a lot of catching up to do.”
Trump on Friday claimed he turned down the chance to be selected as Time’s “Person of the Year.”
“Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named ‘Man (Person) of the Year,’ like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!” Trump tweeted.
He quickly faced pushback from Time magazine, which tweeted that the president is “incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year.”
“TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6,” Time tweeted.
A Time executive also called the claim “total BS.”
Multiple people on social media also mocked the president for his claim.
Souza often trolls Trump, regularly posting photos taken during Obama’s presidency meant to contrast with the current administration.
