Prove the photos are from the events claimed.
This is the internet. Everything is suspect. Everything is fake unless proven otherwise.

Obama was a master at manipulation. You have to remember who he was, a "community organizer". So I think he'd know how to manipulate the size of a crowd.

Its not the size of your inaugural crowd that matters, but what you do with your time in office.
Obama perhaps had a bigger crowd, but his presidency was an utter disaster.

The media has been in meltdown since he announced he was running. They've been exposed through wikileaks that they've been directly colluding with the DNC to defeat Sanders as well as DNC narratives. They announced a war on fake news which is backfiring. They've openly declared hostility and bias against Trump.

Both of these stories are falsely misleading the public on the illegimate president and white supremist narratives. They are patently false and intentionally misleading like 100s of other stories released.

Despite the fact Trump met with MLK III and had a positive meeting with him having a positive outlook in the post interview. They still shamelessly and predictably tried to push the white supremist narrative with the MLK bust lie. It's seems petty but it's the tip of the iceberg of a larger issue and cancer that's been plaguing our media for over 10 years.

From the WMD lie that they helped manipulate the masses to the Russian hacking falsehoods and stoking racial tensions. We need to learn our lesson and hold the media accountable before we get into another useless conflict or some kind of racial war.

Ummmm....it's a little late to ask for truth. Obama is a Kenyan born Muslim. RING A BELL?

Do you really want the hard fact-checked information? HERE YOU GO:

'Alternative Facts': The Needless Lies of the Trump Administration

If the president and his aides will tell easily disproven falsehoods about crowd sizes and speeches, what else will they be willing to dissemble about?



The 'Far Right' in America: A Brief Taxonomy

Untangling the different figures and factions, from the Klan to the alt-right.


Of particular interest for purposes of understand ATS's membership:


Neo-Confederates

A largely regionalist ideology grounded in Confederate revivalism and nostalgia for the “Old South.” According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups nationwide, neo-Confederate ideology “incorporates advocacy of traditional gender roles, is hostile towards democracy, strongly opposes homosexuality, and exhibits an understanding of race that favors segregation and suggests white supremacy.”

What separates the neo-Confederate movement from other white supremacists is its historical narrative. A cornerstone of the ideology is the “Lost Cause” mythology of the Civil War, which portrays the South as a victim of Northern aggression against states’ rights. It also favors a hostile view toward Reconstruction-era reforms towards multiracial democracy, often relying upon the Dunning School of history that overemphasized Republican corruption and elided white Southern violence.

A nice quote from 1984 by George Orwell:

"The Party told you to reject all evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command."

yeah, it's all fun and games until you lose everything, which you will.



Denial. You already lost everything and will continue to. The globalist agenda will be defunct. Socialist America will fail. 8 years of Obamas attempt to fundamentally change America has failed. Billions upon billions of dollars were lost on Hillary's campaign. Her media couldn't carry her across the finish line. Every single attempt to delegitimize his presidency has failed. And now you are left with crowd size. Face you failed in every way possible and can't come to grips with that fact. The left has been reduced to petulant crying children all over the country.

Go into the 7:15 mark you can clearly see full crowd almost back to the Washington Monument, definitely a full crowd back to the white building thing, so the OP photo that the media is using is wrong, end of story.


Yes...If you take a picture from just the right angle you can make a crowd appear..

Whilst discussing the difference between 300k people and 2 Mil. Identical perspectives from identical altitudes and times make for accurate comparison, like in the OP.

It is a little frightening that so many people offer up different ANGLES of Pics at different Distances and then pretend that the concept of perspective does not exist.

Ideology should not rob people of basic cognitive functions.

Apples to apples is how comparisons are made..Same perspective..

LOL and the Women's March was five million!! The next day! And of course they had the decorum and civility to wait until "day one" (His Tremendousness is off base and resting until Monday) (He flew away in his Trumplane).

Don't think for a minute that this is over.
