Pete Souza is at it again.

Souza, President Barack Obama’s former photographer, has posted yet another photo trolling President Donald Trump.

On Thursday, Souza tweeted a photo of Obama speaking to female journalists captioned “Respect for women” in response to Trump’s seemingly disrespectful tweets towards women.

This came in response to Trump’s Thursday morning tweets, where he made sexist remarks aimed at MSNBC co-host Mika Brzezinski.

This is the second incident in two days that has highlighted Trump’s treatment of women. Yesterday, he was roundly criticized online for telling an Irish reporter she had a “great smile.”

Whether Souza was referencing just the Brzezinski incident or both is unclear, but either way, this is another one of Souza’s pointed barbs that have resonated online. After Trump announced the U.S. would pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, Souza posted pictures of Obama visiting national parks with the lyrics to “America, the Beautiful” as captions.

At this point, Souza’s list is longer than that of Trump’s achievements. In six months he’s touched on: Trump’s decision not to release White House visitor logs; Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock’s visit to the White House; Trump skipping the White House Passover Seder; Trump not throwing out a first pitch on Opening Day; and Trump refusing to shake German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hand.

Moments like these don’t seem to be slowing down for Trump, but with Souza around we can depend on one internet troll to keep him in check.
