I bet the shop owners were glad the march took place the next day to make up for the poor turnout!

The numbers are correct. I own an operate a service business with prime coverage in DC and I can categorically state there were more people in DC during Obama's inauguration than Trump's. The subways, streets, restaurants were pretty much empty this past Friday. Most of the restaurant and service facilities all bemoaned the low numbers from Friday.

None of what I just posted are made up stuff. The numbers were low from Friday.


Thanks for that.
Yes...thousands of locals in DC posted on Twitter all kinds of Photographs supporting the idea the numbers were low.
Unfortunately we are faced with a President and supporters who have no qualms about conducting aggressive disinformation campaigns when it suits them. I should be a long 4 years...if it lasts that long.

I am sure they did healthy business with the Women's march.

As long as they weren't victims of RT Media..

Yes they were. It was like night and day.

I didn't make it to the march but some claimed the numbers were higher at the march than the Obama's Inauguration numbers, which I find hard to believe.

Is there a crisis line you can call? I would suggest you keep up with medications.



I don't know what that has to do with anything.


You are obviously having some difficulty and obsessing over a very plain passage of text trying to assign some bizarre deeper meaning that a healthy mind would not attribute to it.

How to help...

I said this..


And that is the non-partisan threat to our democracy.
President Trump depends on exactly that.
If the people reward his Orwellian demand that there are "Alternative Facts" for those willing to dismiss their own critical thinking, then we as a nation can expect it to only get worse going forward from both parties.


Where upon you read it is a literal quote...which makes no sense, since I was obviously the speaker there.

In Contrast...In the other thread you posted this about a video


originally posted by: UKTruth

Quote : "We have to teach white people how to shut their mouths". I kid you not.


Which you admitted you completely invented...aka.. LIED or created an Alternative Fact or whatever you would like to call it.

Notice how your excerpt began with "Qoute:"...then went on to include a statement in quotation marks? And then in case the reader doubted it was real, you ended the quote with "I kid you not"?

All the while you simply made up that quote...

THAT is lying..

The post of mine you are obsessing about is not quoting Trump. And the singular phrase "Alternative Facts" is properly quoted as a semantical invention of the Trump campaign to serve as a place-holder for LIES.

Hope that helps...or that your episode resolves itself soon.



There is no need to explain.
It's pretty clear you made up some extreme smear to make a point. Sensationalism is a common tool to spread propaganda.
Perhaps one day we can dispense with that kind of debating tactic on ATS and get back to an honest discussion.

This thread is an example. We're arguing over a point no one is debating.
Trump's crowd on Friday 20th was not as big as Obama's in 2009. His worldwide audience, as Spicer was referring to (or at least he says he was) was larger.

Great.

Meanwhile, important things are happening, yet 41 pages later here we are and also, there is another thread of 26 pages analysing Melania's facial expressions.


Perhaps the left is finally out of bullets?

Trump sycophants got the biggest win on Jan 20, but they can't accept the smallest L because their cult leader's ego can't accept it. Pathetic.

you guys still dont get it. The issue is not who had the bigger crowd. The issue is the media trying to delegitimize Trump by claiming his crowd was small, insinuating he doesnt have the support of the people. The issue is truth in media and the way they distort or flat out lie / report false information for no other reason than it damages Trump.

Do you guys get it now. It was never about crowd size and has everything to do with the media being truthful. It was like that during the election and the way the media went after Trump.

Aww there you are again. So I just went through your last 10 posting history and almost every post had the words sycophants.. Talk about cultish behavior.. Oh and did I mention every post had the same exact rhetoric across multiple threads? At least put some more effort man..

Effort? You are not worth the calories anymore to be honest. I'd rather post my cynical-dry rhetoric, sit back and wait for your cult leader to make that one mistake that will force you to see reality for what it is. It is going to happen; it happens to all cult leaders. The patterns are there; now we just wait.

Though, I do wish we could get a Niburu thread or something. Maybe a impending doom-comet thread. That would spice things up a bit.

That's right, and then when Trump responded, they went on about how unimportant it was and asked why he was so focused on it. In other words the media were trolling. I am not sure why people put up with a media who see their job as trolling instead of reporting important news.

Hilariously pathetic!

Insecure Donald Trump ordered crowd photos to be hung in the WH, but they have a hilarious error


He is so angry about what he feels is mistreatment from the media (for accurately reporting the crowd size) that he ordered this photo to be hung in the White House press hall. Not in one location, but in two locations within the press hall:










HAHAHAHAHAHA Trump purchased and posted two photos from the Woman's Day March!

You are correct. I enlarged the picture, and it is indeed of the inauguration. The photographer must have made a mistake.

I was confusing this story with the Japanese picture that Trumpites were circulating of a crowd outside, waiting to enter the mall, claiming the media and the Parks Dept were deliberately colluding to make crowd look smaller. That was actually a photo from the woman's march.

I stand corrected. I bet that photographer is FIRED! HAHA

(Glad I didn't do a thread on it! haha)

Where did I say it didn't it?

Personally, I think it's rather silly. Of course Obama's crowds were bigger. And? This is apropos of what? There were several very good reasons for them to be larger, and it would have been worrisome had they not been gargantuan...

As I said...this is rather a silly topic to be getting wound up about.
