In case you were wondering how President Trump's White House Press secretary would handle embarrassments like, say, a general lack of anyone willing to be seen with this administration: Basically he's just gonna lie.
In a Saturday briefing, Sean Spicer whined at the media for nearly six minutes about how they were big mean liars for saying that only 250,000 people had attended Trump's inaugural ceremony in Washington, D.C., on Friday, as compared to the 1.8 million for Obama in 2009 and 1 million in 2013. (Trump's own ridiculous estimate was that 1.5 million turned up.) Spicer claimed that pictures were taken from angles that made the crowd look smaller.
Remember? This crowd?
Even if the estimated numbers are a little off, it's hilariously clear that Trump's audience was dwarfed by both of Obama's and the #WomensMarch on Saturday. Yet Spicer had to go even further and claim that what we saw on Friday "was the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period."
LOL, no it wasn't. Not even close, dude. Dang, you are... not good at this.
Oof. I'd say to walk it off, because the job will only get easier—but we both know that's not true, either. Have fun for the six weeks it takes you to get fired!
