Obama's photographer just threw shade at Trump's chaotic security meeting

With every crazy new episode of the Trump show, Barack Obama's old White House photographer has been quick with the shade, and Monday was no exception.

Following news that Trump responded to an international nuclear crisis with a public security briefing lit by cellphones and captured on Facebook by an extra from the Ted movie, Pete Souza decided to share his own memory on Instagram. You know, to see how Obama and Trump's approaches compare.

Posting an image of the former president holding a security meeting in El Salvador in March 2011, Souza remembers in the caption that "national security discussions and head of state phone calls were conducted in a private, secure location."

Blackberries were banned, he added, which is presumably why these top secret meetings made it onto social media.

The photo - of Obama listening intently while safely ensconced away from prying eyes - provides a stark contrast to the chaos of Trump's hasty gathering. And Souza's timing said it all, even if he didn't explicitly make the comparison in the caption.

Souza's account, which now has a million followers, is fast becoming the top troll of the Trump resistance.
