Obama photographer responds to Palin mocking Clinton portrait

President Obama's former photographer posted a photo response to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) and musicians Ted Nugent and Kid Rock mocking a portrait of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a White House visit on Thursday.

Pete Souza's photo, posted to Instagram, shows Obama sitting with his White House chief of staff Bill Daley beneath a portrait of former President Ronald Reagan.

Palin and Nugent can be seen in their Thursday photo standing beside Clinton's official first lady portrait while making exaggerated gestures as Kid Rock stands with his arms folded.

Souza is known to use his Instagram account to post reactions to the Trump administration.

No, seriously. Nobody thought to tell the wannabe VP that she ought to move away for the photo, and the worker was so tickled to be in the film that he kept right on stuffing turkey heads in the chute (beheading them?) and turning around to grin at the cameras.

This is one of the great Palin faux pas of all time...



After Obama and Biden won election, Palin went back to Alaska. Just before Thanksgiving she had the standard Turkey Pardoning Ceremony at a turkey farm in Wasilla...then stepped outside and gave an interview while, directly behind her, the farm employees were slaughtering all the turkeys she didn't pardon.

I think trump maybe suggested it, more of his mocking and hatred toward Hillary. I think we should take a bunch of trump posters, huuuggge, and set them on fire as close to the wh as we can get. FBI? Arrested those two girls for burning that poster saying it was jsomeone elses, they took it from private property. If it's our own signs it is freedom of expression, just like burning the flag.

32. I get the point but, one was of sophomoric entertainers

The other was of a president (Obama) in front of an official portrait of an opposing party member. When Trump does something as classless in front of the portrait (and that is not out of the realm of possibility) and has it officially photographed and disseminated then it is more worthy of discussion.

Did anyone really expect Palin, Nugent, and Kid Rock to behave? They have made careers and lots of $$$ for such nonsense. That is what they do and their fans expect no less.

But I don't think it's a big deal to take a picture of yourself flipping off a portrait of Ronald Reagan or making a face in front of a portrait of Hillary Clinton.

Nugent, Rock, and Palin have done a lot worse.

I guess it goes to this broader thing that I'm noticing where the media and twitter-verse (and, to some extent DU) gets worked up over little stupid things that don't matter.

81. It is a pretty childish thing to do Obe, and you're right to a certain extent, but when a president

engages in similar taunts through his social media account, it is not just childish, it is down right concerning.

82. Trump is definitely childish and petty

His tweeting is ridiculous.

83. sure, but for someone in his position to do it, it goes beyond ridiculous, it can cause problems

both domestically and internationally.

but to your other point regarding the media devoting too much time to this minutia regarding a couple of has been dopers and alcoholic rockers behaving like immature dolts, you are right on, and doesn't reflect well on society.

It goes to the heart of things, are more people attracted to a headline on healthcare, or a National Enquirer headline regarding a alien from outer space?

84. Yes, I agree

It still is shocking to me every time I read his crazy tweets.

And people do love those click bait stories. Even with health care, people seem more interested in talking about the process rather than informing folks about what the various proposals would actually mean.

Someone pointed out on twitter that a reporter ought to ask Trump to go over the main provisions of the health care plan he is supporting and see what he says.

And if he gives a vague, BS answer, ask a follow up question.

It annoys me that CNN will have an hour of people in boxes yelling at each other about stupid crap instead of a straightforward conversation about, for example, health care, between two informed people with someone intelligent moderating the discussion.

of the creepy uncle who couldn't quite keep his hands off the underage niece.
