Trump’s Press Secretary Says Thursday’s Inauguration Crowd Was Largest Ever
In his first day on the job, Trump's press secretary told a bold-faced lie
In his first full day on the job, Donald Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, told an embarrassing, bold-faced, stinking, filthy, flammable lie. A falsehood. A farce.
(That was a lot. Like, sure, the synonyms were unnecessary semantics. But you’ll need those thesaurus gems to explain certain things over the next 4 years. Just a hunch.)
Spicer, to the shock of anyone with two working eyes, declared that Thursday’s inauguration ceremony, in which Donald Trump was sworn in as America’s 45th president, drew the biggest inauguration crowd ever. “This was the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe,” said Spicer to a room full of reporters. “These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong.”
For shits and giggles, let’s double check the images to make sure there are no “attempts” at lessening the “enthusiasm” of the inauguration going on.
To be frank, it looks like Trump’s inauguration crowd took attempts to lessen its own enthusiasm. The images above are both represented at roughly the same scale, yet, in one, you can see straight through to the floor of the National Mall.
While Trump’s administration went through its full-day routine for the first time, hundreds of thousands people marched on Washington in support of women’s rights and issues in the #WomensMarch. In fact, worldwide at similar marches, over 1 million people hit the streets to denounce Trump’s policies and rhetoric.
Can’t wait to see what Day 2 brings.
