“Organized paperwork on the Resolute Desk, 2009,” was the caption. The subtext: Obama knew how to handle sensitive information. (And maybe there was a little bit of a dig at the fact that a photographer from a Russian state media outlet was present during the meeting during which Trump disclosed the secrets?)
And on Tuesday, the shutterbug was back for another not-so-subtle jab. As Trump’s aides were claiming that the president actually didn’t know the source of the intel that he leaked, Souza posted a picture of Obama in what appears to be a lighthearted moment, shutting his eyes tight and pretending to plug his ears. “If only,” was the caption. Again, the dig could be read in a couple ways. One meaning: presidents shouldn’t be in the dark. And another? Perhaps he was saying he wished we could all just tune out the day’s news.
