Barack Obama's former photographer just expertly trolled Trump's Time magazine claims

President Donald Trump has recently been kicking up a fuss about Time magazine.

He claimed on Friday that the publication was "probably" going to name him "Person of the Year" for the second year in a row.

However, they wanted to interview and photograph him but he couldn't be bothered to do that so he declined.

Of course, not many sensible people believed him.

Even Time themselves shut down Trump's claim.

We're not entirely sure what Trump is complaining about here as he's already been on their cover 14 times during his life, the first time of which was in January 1989.

However, according to Time's own archive he hasn't been on the cover since May which might explain why he is so upset.

He'll be even angrier when he sees what Barack Obama's former White House photographer, Pete Souza shared on his Instagram account with the caption:

Someone has a lot of catching up to do.

The best thing is this isn't anywhere near the amount of Time covers that Obama appeared on

According to the Time cover store, the former President's face adorned 22 different issues of the magazine.

So, Souza, who is a regular Trump troller, is right. The POTUS does have a lot of catching up to do.
