Obama: An Intimate Portrait by Pete Souza review – a people’s man at work, rest and play
A record of Barack Obama’s eight years in office by the official White House photographer reminds us of what we are missing in the age of Trump

“a people’s man at work, rest and play”

I’m sorry, I find this revolting.

A people’s man?

A people’s man who dropped bombs every single day of his administration?

A People’s man who created the world’s first industrial-scale scheme for making people disappear?

A people’s man who killed at the very least 500,000 people in the Middle East?

A people’s man who created several million refugees and nearly destabilized Europe?

A people’s man who never did a thing of consequence for his own people in America?

A people’s man who watched and helped as Hillary cheated and clawed her way to the Democratic nomination?
