We wonder how Sean Spicer is gonna spin this??
As you may recall, Donald Trump and his lackeys went after the media earlier this year for supposedly lying about the poor turnout for his Inauguration. In fact, even though there were noticeably less people at Trump’s swearing in ceremony than were at Barack Obama‘s Inauguration, Drumpf and his press secretary went onto say it was the “largest audience to ever witness an inauguration.”
Well, that’s just a boldface lie….and now we have the pictures to prove it!
Over the weekend, the National Park Service released hundreds of ground and aerial photos of the National Mall on January 20. Not to mention, the federal agency also shared pics from Obama’s swearing in ceremonies from 2009 and 2013 — and the difference in crowd size is undeniable.
To make matters worse for the Trump administration, the Washington Post claims the images were taken only an hour and eight years apart. What’s crazy is the Trumpster hoped these official government photos would help prove his belief that more than 1.5 million people arrived at the National Mall to watch him become president. No joke!
The Commander-in-Chief even contacted the National Park Service director, named Michael T. Reynolds, and asked him to help prove his inaccurate statement. Three separate sources confirmed:
“The president believed that the photos might prove that the media had lied in reporting that attendance had been no better than average.”
HA. Pretty much, these pics just confirm what we already knew back in January.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Trump and his team have uttered misstatements about Inauguration Day. We mean, all of that “alternative facts” nonsense came about because Spicer lied about the D.C. Metro ridership on his boss’ big day.
Be sure to ch-ch-check out all of the Inauguration Day pics for yourself in the batch (above).
