“President Donald Trump has accused the media of dishonestly reporting the size of the crowd at his inauguration.
He said the crowd had reached the Washington monument as he spoke at the US Capitol, despite photographic evidence to the contrary.
Later, his White House press secretary said it had been “the largest audience to ever see an inauguration, period”.”
See Trump inauguration: President attacks ‘dishonest’ media over crowd photosHow many times will Trump be caught in a lie before the world knows Emperor Trump I has no clothes? Most sentient beings do rely on their own eyes and photographic evidence. Trump does not. He wants the news to be thus and orders it to be so. That just won’t wash. Attacking the news media over facts not in evidence and obviously inconsistent with facts from independent sources brings discredit to Trump and his whole team. Apparently they still believe lies told repeatedly will be believed. That wears thin.
You be the judge. What do your eyes tell you? Meanwhile a million or more women and supporters with/without pink hats paraded in cities all over the country standing up to Trumpism in all its forms. There is a multiplier effect women have, Trump. They reproduce. They have children who grow into voters. They have friends and family who support them and trust them. Whatever trust Trump needs to build in USA will not happen as long as the boss lies and everyone knows he lies repeatedly and systematically and never withdraws any of his foolish statements of lies. Does he want USA and the world to discount him as mad? It’s working.
CNN is even more direct. They report that news media and former spokesmen for POTUS were equally amazed at the obvious lies being pushed by the Trump-team.
“Ari Fleischer, who had the same job as Spicer during the George W. Bush administration, tweeted, “This is called a statement you’re told to make by the President. And you know the President is watching.””
Amazing. Simply, amazing. Can’t look away from this train-wreck.
