Pete Souza is famous for being President Obama’s photographer. But he also served as the Chief Official White House Photographer for Ronald Reagan.
He wrote a book during the Trump years called “Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents,” where he rounded up all the phenomenal Shade he threw at Trump by comparing the bad news cycle of his day to great moments from President Obama’s administration. It’s a great book full of unbelievable photography — and hilarious snark — that takes the reader behind the scenes into some of the most intimate and powerful moments of the Obama Presidency, while also helping to clarify just what an unserious person his successor was.
After properly trolling DJT for some time, Souza has now formally turned his attention to Dr. Ronny Jackson, a Republican Congressman representing TX-13.
If you don’t know Dr. Ronny, it may seem odd that this world class photojournalist would bother spending so much energy tearing him down. But Dr. Ronny isn’t just any Congressperson – before getting elected to office in 2020, he served as White House physician to both Presidents Obama and Trump.
He was very well liked by many members of Obama’s team – there’s definitely a lot of head scratching going on in Obamaland about what the heck happened to the guy.
If you’ve never heard his name, you might remember him as the guy who gushed that then-President Trump was in “excellent health” and that if he adjusted his diet, just a bit, he might just live to 200.
This would have been hilarious if Ronny Jackson was just some Trump fanboi on Twitter. But of course he wasn’t – he was Trump’s official White House doctor. So instead of being funny, it was absurd, bordering on dangerous.
So yeah, Dr. Ronny went from a beloved member of Team Obama, to a drooling Trump sycophant to… a member of Congress?! And in his latter capacity, he has been working overtime to troll President Biden on Twitter as both physically and mentally unfit for office.
Is Dr. Ronny a hypocrite for helping promote the idea that President Trump was fit to serve another – checks note – 120 years(!!!), but that President Biden is somehow unfit for the job at hand? Yes. Yes he is.
And Pete Souza has the receipts to show just what a hypocrite Dr. Ronny really is.
Souza’s been sharing those receipts on Twitter for a while now, and his fire just continues to grow!
He’s got the stats, the stories, and a bunch of intimate shots to show just what a craven, hypocrite Dr. Ronny Jackson has become.
Each tweet from Souza should serve as a valuable warning to all Twitter trolls (whether or not they’re elected officials) – if you’re going to share awful, offensive views, don’t forget who knows where your skeletons are – especially if they’re a famous photographer with a substantial platform!
It’s been fun watching Souza eat Dr. Ronny’s lunch the last few months. And at some point, it just became too fun to not do a roundup. So here are some of Souza’s most popular digs, curated for your enjoyment:
Here’s Souza’s Questioning Dr. Ronny’s knowledge of the Bible
Here’s a time Souza caught Dr. Ronny in A compromising moment
Here’s Souza Calling out Dr. Ronny for being a little disconnected from reality…
Is It Dr. Ronny or Dr. Death?
Here’s Souza wondering why Dr. Ronny doesn’t seem to care about COVID… or his Constituents
Dr. Ronny’s bad on President Biden (in genral) and awful on COVID. But he’s terrible on on lots of other topics too!
These Tweets are of course just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Souza’s Twitter fire takes. But hopefully, they give you a taste of the fight that Souza’s been taking part in against Trump and his minions. If you want to see every one of Souza’s takedowns of Dr. Ronny, head here.
