im sure when i was watching from all the way over in Scotland the crowd was bigger, are you sure you haven't got a pic of the place maybe an hour or so before it started?


he's been posting that pic he got from the MSM for a while. It is about an hour before Trump spoke.
Here is a pic from later down the mall:



Uh-huh..

Maybe lower the camera angle another 10 feet and you wont se the white patches at all!

Or maybe take an Ariel view for an accurate perspective?

Compare it to another Arial view from the exact same height and angle from other inaugurations?..

Or is that too "logicy" or "sciency" for you liking??



I agree. People are being fooled by the false perspective in photos taken from the front. Not only in photos but obviously from the perspective of the viewer. Obviously Trump looking out from his perspective would have believed that the crowds went all the way back to the monument.

See following. Image from a TV control room showing the live feed taken during Trump's speech.




No, @brithume. This picture was taken from a live feed, from a tv control room DURING the speech. Why lie about it? Surely you took a pic?

In comparison to the OPs image the crowds at the back had filled out a little.

Nope..

Oh, you really think Obama was acting as a sovereign individual when he ran?

No way. Obama was picked and that's it, he was a representative. THEY choose presidents.. You don't just run as president. And you don't just run as president and then win unless you've been picked. Unless you're Trump apparently.. seemingly thinks didn't go as planned this election. Something unprecedented might have happened.

The shadow government has checks and balances. The ideal election could be represented by the 2004 election. Two Bones men against each other. You know they have to win whoever wins.. That's why they control both sides.

You didn't think it was obvious that Obama was someone's puppet when you noticed the support he got from all the globalist institutions?

No.. I don't believe that was the reason for Obama's popularity. The media started it, they got the ball rolling.. But who's first? The chicken or the egg right? Either way most of Obama's popularity can be traced either to him being black because yes liberals really are that racist, or to the overwhelming media support he got.

And for the record.. Obama conducted himself like the biggest pansy pushover ever.. So, it definitely wasn't his conduct. It must have been the media and the Nobel Peace Prize. The prize that should be immediately rescinded.

Yes that represents the 1 hour time difference.

OP picture is at 11AM...Pic above is a little after Noon.

I have posted full time-lapse imagery a few times in the thread.

Not much. lol. So less people come to see Trump get sworn in means he is a bad president.
I could say there are more gullible people in the world as well.

A picture is not going to define a person.

Agreed. A President is not defined by his inaugural attendance. A President is defined by words and actions.

And unfortunately our President spent his first days words and action in office falsely boasting about the millions of people at his inauguration and then lying to support the claim and then attacking the press for reporting facts and pictures....Words and Actions..

His attendance numbers don't matter...

His pettiness, dishonesty and narcissistic personality disorder on full display over the issue does matter.

Correct.
Fox just showed an aerial pic with more people than the timelapse... Hopefully it will show up on the web. Proved to me the time lapse video is fake.

The huge mistake the new Administration made was lying about the attendance instead of not caring how many showed up.

You can spin why people didnt show up, but you cant blatantly lie about the turnout and expect to get away with it without consequences.

Even their fervent supporters can see the truth.

Seriously, who cares how many showed up?

But to obviously and aggressively lie about it eats away at credibility

That's the larger issue...who cares about attendance..But if his first day is spent in a bold-faced lie?

Presidents need to be credible and to be believed...Lack of credibility has real consequences during terrorist attacks, invasions etc. etc.

He spends his credibility on petty, self-intersted lies like attendance numbers...when the nations security might very easily rest sometime soon on whether his word his credible. We are in a dangerous place when the President of the United States can not be believed.

I saw it. It was literally only 50-75 more people. You guys are grasping right now and its pathetic. Still on this nonsense.

Take the L and go home.

Its right here. There was literally only few spots filled. It still looks like the SAME AERIAL pic used in the OP. You supporters are delusional. It is no where near Obama in 2013 OR 2009

Deal with reality.

The pictures, which you have used as evidence for 2009vs2017, are all available for every Inauguration. It's very clear.
2013 vs 2017 is a debate.
2009 > 2017.
Other than those two, Trump's crowd was bigger than all others.

How do you reconcile this with the following:

“This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — period — both in person and around the globe.”
—White House press secretary Sean Spicer, remarks to reporters, Jan. 21, 2017

“I looked out, the field was — it looked like a million, million and a half people.”
—President Trump, remarks to the CIA, Jan. 21, 2017

More importantly, why does it really matter who was more popular?

Spicer already clarified his statement and he is correct (albeit I think he he found a way to be correct!). 2017 did have the largest audience of all time.

Trump was about right. His crowd was significantly bigger than Clinton's in 1993, which was reported at 800,000. The estimate of 1-1.5m is also a a throw away line.

I wouldn't take it too seriously, and no it doesn't matter who is more popular. It only matters what Presidents do. On that score Trump is probably already ahead of Obama and Bush.

Lol, you counted 75 more people from a picture for a few seconds on Fox in comparison to a video online?
Funny.

i will be honest, that was the first one i have watched (from Scotland), but i like Trump, i like what hes doing and saying, for once it is not the same shhh, For once there is a rebel in the camp ready to shake things up, lets see what falls out. i am willing to bet that more people watched Trump, everybody i knew watched and took interest because of the livewire that is Trump, and i was very impressed with his 20 min speech with no notes, you would be lucky if Georgey Bush could have said his name without notes, haha.
