Obama WH photographer hits Trump for declining to throw opening pitch

Pete Souza, the former White House photographer to President Obama, poked at President Trump on Friday over his decision not to throw out the first pitch at an opening day baseball ballgame.

Trump turned down an invitation to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Washington Nationals’ Opening Day game next week. 


Souza shared a photo on Instagram of Obama prepping to throw out an opening pitch seven years ago.

The Nationals begin their season at home on Monday afternoon against the Miami Marlins. 

Both Obama and former President George W. Bush have thrown out opening pitches in the past. Trump himself threw out an opening pitch before becoming president at a 2006 Boston Red Sox home game.
