The burn scars of President Trump hasn’t seen the healing spirit as another flying bow has found its way to hit the Achilles heel of the U.S President. After getting ruthlessly trolled for his remark on denying the TIME’s person of the year, former President Obama’s photographer has found a way to target the current President of the United States.
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.”

The photos thus include the collage of 15 photos, where the former President of the States was chosen TIME’s person of the year. Wherein, one of the cover pages has the former first lady of the United Nation, Michelle Obama.
The controversy came into the light after President Trump claimed that he turned down the chance to be selected as TIME’s “’Person of the year”
He tweeted, “”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 faced the 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.
Pete Souza often trolls Trump, regularly posting photos taken during Obama’s presidency meant to contrast with the current administration.
