Obamas White House photographer trolls the Trumps hand-holding failures on Instagram

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then Pete Souza posted 1,002 on his Instagram account Tuesday.

“Holding hands,” wrote Souza, the former official White House photographer under President Barack Obama.

Above it was an image of Obama clasping the left hand of former first lady Michelle Obama, as the two listened to a speech in Selma.

But the succinct caption belied what many of the more than 1.3 million followers of Souza's Instagram feed have surmised over the last several months: That the post must have been a reference to something President Trump had just done. Or not done.

Sure enough, Souza's throwback photo followed a pair of viral video clips in which first lady Melania Trump appeared to swat away her husband's hand — or at least show no interest in holding it — during their trip to the Middle East.
