Hold Pete Souza’s beer and camera America.

The former Obama White House photographer is so fed up with Donald Trump’s behavior that he abandoned his primary medium of trolling, Instagram, to appeal to an audience more familiar with Trump’s outrageous antics: Twitter.

On Friday morning Souza posted a tweet concerning Twitter’s harassment policy, specifically posting a screenshot of the section that details how abusive behavior, such as threats of violence, will not be tolerated.

Though the photographer never mentioned Trump by name, after the president’s morning tweet about North Korea, we can probably assume he’s the subtweet target.

Trump terrified the world on Tuesday by issuing a verbal warning to Kim Jong-Un and North Korea, explaining if the country takes military action against the United States, “They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

Since then, North Korea issued a threat against Guam and Trump made another statement speculating that perhaps his initial statement “wasnt tough enough.”

Several hours before Souza’s post, Trump tweeted another threat to North Korea, assuring Kim Jong Un America is ready to fight with weapons “locked and loaded,” which sounds a lot like a violent threat. What do you think, Jack?

In Souza’s tweet, he simply wrote, “Cmon Twitter. It’s time….” urging followers to report Trump’s behavior. Though it’s certainly not the first time Twitter users have called for a Trump ban.

Souza is known for frequently speaking out against Trump’s actions through Instagram posts, often sharing photographs he took of Obama during his time in the White House to compare the two leaders. He’s no stranger to throwing social media shade, but up until now he’s been pretty silent about Trump on Twitter.
