Former President Obama's longtime White House photographer took a swipe at President TrumpDonald TrumpHouse passes voting rights and elections reform bill DEA places agent seen outside Capitol during riot on leave Georgia Gov. Kemp says he'd 'absolutely' back Trump as 2024 nominee MORE on Tuesday hours after Trump called former White House aide Omarosa Manigault NewmanOmarosa Manigault NewmanTanden seeks to defuse GOP tensions over tweets Juan Williams: The GOP's problem with women of color Trump administration sought to sue Omarosa after she announced tell-all book: report MORE a “dog.”

Pete Souza shared a photo of Obama and his Portuguese water dog, Bo.

The photographer has enjoyed jabbing Trump side since before his election and has regularly posted images meant to negatively contrast the Trump administration with former White Houses.

His recent knock at the president came shortly after Trump slammed Manigault Newman following the release of her new tell-all book, “Unhinged.” 

"When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!" Trump said on Twitter, referring to White House chief of staff John KellyJohn Francis KellyMORE.


Trump drew immediate backlash from both sides of the aisle for calling Manigault Newman, who was once the highest-ranking African American woman in the West Wing, an animal.

The president’s remark arrived the same morning CBS News released a recording from Manigault Newman in which White House staffers appear to discuss an alleged tape in which Trump uses a racial slur.

The recording appears to be of an internal call during Trump's 2016 campaign about an alleged tape Manigault Newman claims was created during his time as host of "The Apprentice."

Trump has denied that such a recording exists, and that such as word is even "in my vocabulary."
