Trump Lies & Tweets (Inauguration Crowd Size) 1/21/17

On Saturday, January 21, 2017, Donald Trump, talking about his inauguration:

… claimed that the crowd for his swearing-in stretched down the National Mall to the Washington Monument and totaled more than 1 million people.

That is a lie.

According to the New York Times, Keith Still, a professor at Manchester Metropolitan University in England, estimates that the crowd on the National Mall on Friday was about one-third the size of President Obama’s in 2009.

So, Donald Trump keeps lying… and, we keep counting.

“A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.”... Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Germany’s Minister of Propaganda and Public Enlightenment
