Pete Souza joins chorus gloating over Trumpcare failure with epic Instagram

The schadenfreude online when Trumpcare collapsed for a second time was deafening. However, amid all the resurfaced Trump tweets and Art of the Deal jokes one troll stood out once again. Pete Souza, Obama's official White House photographer, added another Instagram post to his mammoth shade collection against Trump after the news broke Friday. SEE ALSO: Obama's official White House photographer is Insta-trolling Trump This time, Souza shared a photo of Obama and Mike Pence from 2010 — and the caption was devastating. "Before voting on the Affordable Care Act in 2010, President Obama met with many members of Congress on both side of the aisle over the course of many months," he wrote. "This picture was taken at the end of a multiple hours-long meeting with the entire Republican House caucus in which he responded to dozens of questions and critiques. It was carried live on cable TV." In other words, Obama knew that healthcare was — you know — complicated, and worked hard with Republicans and Democrats, in the glare of the media, to get the ACA pushed through. An approach that differs, you may say, from Trump's efforts this week.

Trump tastes failure as U.S. House healthcare bill collapses

President Donald Trump suffered a stunning political setback on Friday in a Congress controlled by his own party when Republican leaders pulled legislation to overhaul the U.S. healthcare system, a major 2016 election campaign promise of the president and his allies. House of Representatives leaders yanked the bill after a rebellion by Republican moderates and the party's most conservative lawmakers left them short of votes, ensuring that Trump's first major legislative initiative since taking office on Jan. 20 ended in failure. House Republicans had planned a vote on the measure after Trump late on Thursday cut off negotiations with Republicans who had balked at the plan and issued an ultimatum to vote on Friday, win or lose.
