The Trump propaganda machine is already lying to the American people.

So Donald Trump’s Inauguration came and went and no one was that excited about it. Sure, some people did show up, but it was an incredible disappointment when compared to Barack Obama’s 2009 inaugural. But don’t take my word for it. Here are some photos via The New York Times. The juxtaposition is pretty stark.

I mean there’s just no question that Obama’s crowd dwarfed Trump’s, and the media reported as much. But, I’m sure our next President is too busy worrying about running the most powerful country in the world to focus on such a petty— OF COURSE HE ISN’T. No, on Saturday Donald Trump sent press secretary Sean Spicer out to yell at the media for DECEIVING people about the size of his crowd. Spicer started by saying that the Trump administration plans to hold the media accountable when they lie and then went on to unleash this unhinged rant.

Photographs of the inaugural proceedings were intentionally framed in a way in one particular tweet to minimize the enormous support that had gathered on the National Mall. This was the first time in our nation’s history that floor coverings have been used to protect the grass on the mall. That had the effect of highlighting any areas where people were not standing, while in years past, the grass eliminated this visual. This was also the first time that fencing and magnetometers went as far back on the wall, preventing hundreds of thousands of people from being able to access the mall as they had in inaugurations past. Inaccurate numbers involving crowd size were also tweeted. No one had numbers, because the National Parks Service, which controls the National Mall, does not put any out. By the way, this applies to any attempt to count the number of protesters in the same fashion.

But wait. Spicer wasn’t done.

We do know a few things, so let’s go through the facts. We know that from the platform, where the President was sworn in, to 4th street holds about 250,000 people. From 4th street to the media tent is about another 220,000. And from the media tent to the Washington Monument, another 250,000 people. All of this space was full when the President took the Oath of Office. We know that 420,000 people used the DC Metro public transit yesterday, which actually compares to 317,000 used it for President Obama’s last inaugural.

This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration. PERIOD! Both in person and around the globe. Even the New York Times printed a photograph showing that a misrepresentation of the crowd in that original tweet, which showed the full extent of the support, depth, and crowd, and intensity that existed. These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong.

Let’s go through this. First, it’s crazy that this administration is spending time on this. Why are you so obsessed with being popular. You won the election, but you can’t make us all pretend that we like it. Second, Sean, are you fucking kidding me? “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration. PERIOD!” That’s such an insanely easily disproved lie, why even bother making it. And lest you think I’m “misrepresenting” what happened, I’ll take your advice and look at those photos in The New York Times. Oh, wait. I included them up there, didn’t I? Oh well, here they are again.

And in addition to lying and being terrifying and the type of thing shitty dictators do, this is also bad politics.

If the fact that Obama’s inaugural beat his so badly got under his skin, I can’t wait to see what he says about the fact that the Women’s March dwarfed his inaugural too. But again, don’t believe me. Believe this:
