Trump Banned Press From Meeting With World Leaders. Here’s How A Photographer Got His Revenge

 

Trump has made hatred for the free press into one of the cornerstones of his administration. He decries every unflattering story as “fake news” and regularly insults, berates, and ignores journalists. It’s nothing less than an all-out war on the truth.

Given Trump’s behavior, it’s always nice to see a reporter getting back at the president, even if it’s just in a small way.

Doug Mills, a photographer for The New York Times, has been traveling with Trump during his Asia trip and is frustrated with the minimal access that the White House has afforded the press, reports The Washington PostOn Friday, he tweeted out a tongue-in-cheek message with a photo of a black box, calling attention to the fact that he had not been permitted to take the photos of Trump’s attendance at the APEC summit.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

Last night, in what was clearly an act of good-natured revenge, Mills tweeted out a preposterous photo of Trump at the ASEAN summit. The president is seen grimacing like a child and squeezing the hands of the world leaders on either side of him. It’s a distinctly unpresidential photograph, and it seems likely Mills chose to publish this photo rather than another, more complimentary image as payback for Friday’s media blackout.
