This is the video of the new Press Secretary. The source is of no consequence.

He is angry and irritating and clearlylying about the crowd size for the inauguration.

If this is what we have to look forward to, I have no idea of what to say.

I'm not surprised, lol. I will just cease watching WH press briefings if they look like this.

His master just ranted and whined at him, and told him to go and lie to the American Public.

He never allowed any questions, he ran away.

He certainly did lie!


His statement included several specific misstatements of fact in addition to the overarching one.

"This is the first time in our nation's history that floor coverings have been used to protect the grass on the Mall," Spicer said, claiming that this "had the effect of highlighting areas people were not standing whereas in years past the grass eliminated this visual."

In fact, coverings were used for Obama's second inauguration in 2013.

"This was also the first time that fencing and magnetometers went as far back on the Mall, preventing hundreds of thousands of people from being able to access the Mall as quickly as they had in inaugurations past," Spicer said.

In fact, a United States Secret Service spokesperson told CNN, no magnetometers were used on the Mall.

And Spicer said, "We know that 420,000 people used the D.C, Metro public transit yesterday, which actually compares to 317,000 for president Obama's last inaugural."

Spicer's number for ridership on Friday was actually low -- the correct number, according to Metro itself, was 570,557. But there were actually 782,000 trips taken for Obama's second inaugural in 2013.

Do you think it is appropriate for the media to report lies or misinformation?

That IS weird. CNN took a break from commenting about what would happen if someone assassinated our current president and how awesome-sauce the new Obama website is to post some sorta news.

Maybe this will get them over that pesky .2% total viewers in America thing.

So he said that CNN sucks and didn't take questions from the biased media.

What's funny is that even you had to say that the source is of no consequence.

Much like this thread.

To some it's the beginning of the decent into hell. Perhaps we ought to think for ourselves, no?

People who hate Trump only see the images they want to see. The ones the fake news has been putting out. The images taken just when the speech began show a much different reality. It is hilarious to see the libs smoking their proverbial banana peels and then claiming all kinds of nutty anti Trump themes. "Oh look what CNN just showed us, hardly anyone showed up at Trumps inauguration", "Lets use this to continue our false pathetic narrative".

"thinking for myself" as a non-american, outside the churn of it all, it genuinely looks like "descent into hell" is the only rational description for what's going on over there right now.

I assure you it is not a decent into hell. More like the swing of a pendulum. You should now how Americans make everything melodramatic!!

With Trump, size matters, so he clearly feels obligated to correct the record since we've all seen the size of Obamas [wink]

I have no idea why Trump would want to start a war with the media, they'll chew him up and spit him out.

Surely the guy knows he's not rich enough to battle with the corporate media mega-cartels ?

Not to mention the fact that he's biting off the hand that feeds him.

Surely you know the guy's ego is far larger than his IQ (and hands).
