Sean Spicer, White House Propaganda Minister (the job previously known as White House Press Secretary) angrily — and falsely — claims that Trump’s inauguration drew “the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period.”
There is something seriously wrong with these people. What they are claiming is *clearly* not true about the audience actually in attendance in Washington. Dozens of aerial photos comparing the Obama crowd in 2009 with the crowd yesterday show Trump’s audience was significantly smaller. And available numbers on the size of the TV audience show the same.
