As the Obamas enjoy their various post-presidency vacations after eight long, destructive years in our White House, President Donald Trump is hard at work making America great again. White House photographer Pete Souza has also been working hard, posting thousands of official photos from Barack Obama’s presidency, and people quickly noticed that there is one big thing missing from the photographic record of Obama’s time in office.
While the legacy Obama will leave behind remains to be seen, with President Trump working hard to reverse every devastating executive order his predecessor signed, Obama developed a reputation for a certain lackadaisical lifestyle, spending a large portion of his time golfing at elite courses and vacationing around the world on the taxpayers’ dime. Thus, it seems awfully odd that there are none of these pictures in Souza’s collection.
President Obama and has family have officially left the White House and have moved into the world of previous presidents. History will certainly tell what his story was. But for now, twitter seems to be (t)he biggest source trying to show us who he was as a president.
In an attempt to share and archive the former president the official photographer has released over twenty one hundred pictures of Obama from his time serving as president.
Many people are surprised how out of thousands of pictures we didn’t see a single one of Obama playing golf. After all, he played more rounds of golf while president than any other president in American history. Many believe it was an attempt to cover up the relaxed Obama and only show one that looks dedicated and hard at work. [Source: Right Wing News]
Here are some of Souza’s posts so you can decide for yourself whether or not he has an agenda:
It would certainly appear from this photographic evidence that “the most transparent administration in history” is trying ardently to hide the reality of what actually went down between January 2009 and January 2017. Pete Souza is going to have to do better than this if he wants to convince us that Barack Obama actually did some work.
Millions of Americans watched closely over the better part of a decade while Obama partied away his presidency. We cannot be fooled.
