Trump attacks media; claims his inauguration crowd was big


2017-01-23 02:19:08
During his first day in office Trump decided to bash the media for deliberately underreporting the size of his inauguration crowd. According to him it was way, way bigger than reported. Based on Trump facts there were around 1.5 million people at his inauguration, the Trump claim that photographs can easily dissaprove.

Trump claims that the photographs with empty fields that much of the news media used, were not correct, and in fact, the crowds were huge. He said that he thinks the media is going to pay a big price [for saying he is wrong].

Sean Spicer, the current White House Press Secretary and Communications Director for President Donald Trump, claimed that Trump had drawn the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration. Ever. And that the photographs of the crowds were deliberately framed to minimize the Trump effect. Which is big. Of course.

Not Trump nor his Press secretary have showed any proof of their claims. But that doesn't matter, because according to Trump journalists are "among the most dishonest human beings on earth."
