Baghdad Bob apparently has undergone a name change and has a new job as White House Press Secretary. Today he came out and said that the crowds at His Fraudulency Donald the Trump’s inauguration, variously reported as sparse, were YUUUGE, tremendous I say!. The biggest ever! Bigly! Amazing! As evidenced by this comparison of Trump’s inauguration crowd with Obama’s inauguration crowd, where Trump’s crowd is on the left:
Oh wait. No, Trump’s crowd is on the right.
Eight years ago, 1.8 million people gathered in the National Mall to watch Barack Obama take office. It’s estimated, based on transit numbers, less than half that number gathered yesterday to watch His Fraudulency’s coronation.
Compare / contrast with the crowd for today’s Women’s March On Washington. It appears that more women showed up today to protest His Fraudulency’s administration, than people total showed up yesterday to celebrate His Fraudulency’s coronation. Which pretty much matches the polls that say that Trump is about as popular as genital warts. He got into office through chicanery and through having an opponent even less popular than him, not because people like him.
So what do Trump’s supporters have to say about this?
“The inauguration was on a Friday. We had to work.”
Yeah, those fry cookers don’t fill themselves, y’all.
