Obama Photographer Pete Souza Taunts Trump For Not Buying Melania A Birthday Gift

“He always gave her a present too."

Obama-era White House photographer Pete Souza doesn’t often pass up on an opportunity to troll President Donald Trump. And so it was business as usual on Thursday when Trump revealed during a wild “Fox & Friends” interview that he was too busy “to be running out looking for presents” to celebrate first lady Melania Trump’s 48th birthday.

“He always gave her a present too,” Souza captioned the image.

In recent months, Souza has used the photographs he took during the Obama administration to mock Trump over his use of “a big word,” the way in which former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired and to question Trump’s claim he’d have probably “run in” to confront the Parkland, Florida, school shooter.
