Former White House photographer Pete Souza has spent the last eight years of his life photographing President Obama and his family inside the White House. Now that we’re in the Trump era, one peek at Souza’s Instagram account shows just how much he loathes Donald Trump. Usually, Souza trolls Trump with photos of his much more classy and capable predecessor. The photos are a rare look inside the life of President Obama’s historic presidency, and they are definitely a soothing balm on our raw nerves during the chaos that is the Donald Trump presidency. Without further ado, here are just a few photos and videos of some of President Obama’s most memorable moments.
There was that time he spontaneously broke into song at a rally in front of a mesmerized crowd:
And of course there was the time he joked with a woman whose boyfriend embarrassed her in the voting booth, and it went viral and made her day:
This is Souza trolling Trump’s disastrous first meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel:
And of course who can forget his running through the White House with First Dog Bo?
And of course, he’s just awesome with kids:
And last, but certainly not least, there’s the amazing love he shares with the best First Lady we’ve ever had, Michelle Obama:
There’s so much goodness in this account, it was difficult to pic just a few. Thank you, Pete Souza, for sharing these moments in time from the Obama years. For those of us who love this man and miss him so much, it is truly a treasured digital space.
