Donald Trump is being dragged all over social media after Sean Spicer, spokesman for the Donald Trump, gave a bizarre presser in which he attacked the media, and truth itself regarding Trump’s inauguration.
Wasting no time, Spicer began shouting at reporters assembled in the White House briefing room, attacking media reports that President Trump’s inauguration crowd was smaller than Trump predicted. With his voice getting progressively louder in volume, Spicer made excuses for the small crowd, saying that the tarps used to protect the grass on the National Mall unintentionally highlighted empty spots in the crowd.
“Inaccurate numbers involving crowd size were also tweeted. No one had numbers, because the National Parks Service, which controls the National Mall, does not put any out,” Spicer angrily declared. “By the way, this applies to any attempt to count the number of protesters today in the same fashion.”
Spicer then made the most absurd remark:
“This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe,” he said. “These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong.”
Of course, Spicer’s claim about inauguration attendance were completely false. As expected, Twitter couldn’t let Spicer’s comments go without a thorough and well-deserved mocking.
USA Today and CNN both responded to Spicer’s attacks on the media in the best way possible.
