Yet the left is blaming everyone and everything for their own spectacular stupidity and the reason they lost.

Yes its on Republicans now to get things done... and so far they are off to a good start.

All the while the left continues to throw a temper tantrum and focus on issues that no one cares abut but those who lost the election.

As for fake news that started before Trump was even the Republican nominee, and was pushed hard by the left but by all means keep talking about scapegoats some more as the hypocrisy never gets old.

So you apparently have no idea what was being talked about. So once again you ignored reality and went back to the democratic talking point, Thank you for proving my point. the only one pushing crowd size is the left.

The issue is truth in media.

We are talking about Trump lying about crowd numbers, something which you refuse to accept!

Wrong again, Trump is the one pushing and whining about crowd size.

He didnt lie...

Only the left is talking about crowd numbers...

You can talk about crowd numbers with the others who cant accept Trump won... in the meantime we will discuss truth in media and the lack of it when it comes to reality.

Correct.. but trying to pass of a photo an hour before an event and then try and spin it as an actual attendance size is dishonest and doesnt not adequately reflect reality.


When the TV news run a story about, say, heart disease, they show stock footage of random overweight people smoking. Is that dishonest?


It is if they intentionally mislead by portraying that person as the focus of their story when in reality its just B roll footage..


So how is that different than showing scenes from two different inaugurations? No-one is claiming that the images were doctored. The fact remains that Trump's inaugural crowd was smaller, and he refuses to accept that fact.

It is not about crowd size... If you watch the press briefing you would know this.

Tell me, whats the difference between crowd size and viewing audience?

Crowd size refers to the number of bodies physically present. More people showed up the next day to protest than attended the actual inauguration. Viewing audience takes all the media audience into account. Every year, more and more people have devices to view media content. It is a measure of curiosity, not support.

Forty-one pages, and no sign of slowing down any, of an argument about the size of the crowds at the inaugural.

Is this the "birther" issue re-writ? In six years will some sheriff somewhere be hosting press conferences about it?
.


Trump was king of the birthers...a ridiculously false and racially tainted smear...as opposed to simple photographs and math regarding a reality Trump took offense to.
And we don't have to wait six years for a press conference ..Trump made sure his very first duty of his newly minted Press Secretary on day one was to to assemble the WH press pool for a propaganda session on the issue.

"Viewing audience" is the retreat position that the Trumps administration fell back to when their initial lies and propaganda around attendance numbers was successfully debunked by reality itself.

My point was that that was a ridiculous story which all but the most partisan knew, after only a cursory glance to be false, untrue, etc...

Is this story, such as it is, going to drag on just as long? It's beginning to look like it.

I find that rather unfortunate.

It was a non story until Trump decided his day one very first WH briefing was going to be attacking the press over it and offering false data and claims to counteract reality.

The weight that TRUMP placed on the story and the manner in which propagandized to counter the inconvenient truth is the story.

Put another way...He sent an indisputable message that his petty ego will rule the WH and he will attack reporters who challenge it and has no issue being dishonest in doing so.

I don't care about his attendance numbers. I very much care about his mental state and dishonesty and how that will effect national issues for the next 4 years.

Good now go back and watch what was stated at the press briefings.

Crowd size is not the issue and never has been.

It was an attempt by the left to delegitimize Trump as President by suggesting no one supported him or didnt support him enough to bother to show up.

The left made it a story by misrepresenting information for a political agenda. The left cant accept the fact they lost and to add insult to injury they are smarting because of whom they lost too.

The tantrum by the left is evident since they have not stopped bitching or focuses on anything that matters since.

Still wrong, it is the POTUS throwing a tantrum because Obama had more people at his inauguration than Trump did.

Trump and his little trumpets then have to constantly lie about that fact.

That is what this is all about, poor little Twump having a hissy fit because someone elses party was bigger than his.

Crowd size doesn't matter!!

It's the fact that Trump was triggered by it like a snowflake. That's the issue.

Not a issue...... yet Trump lied about it, then had a meltdown over it, his press secretary embarrassed himself by lying about it, his little trumpets come here and lie about it, then deny that they lied.

Simply because Trump has NPD!
