here's a timelapse of inauguration day
notice that it a) fills the mall back to the same white building, and b) kinda has the same pinkish hue as the paul joseph image. i think that's an image of the women's march.
There is free speech and there is being an annoying twat. This user is exercising his right to the latter.
FE'ism requires suspension of disbelief...
Here's an actual video of Trump's speech, where you can clearly see the mall packed full of people in the background:https://youtu.be/sRBsJNdK1t0?t=948
i know literally nothing about paul joseph
Where live, do the offer adult reading classes?
If Trump's team weren't being such children and claiming to have TEH BIGGEREST INORGURATION EVAH! this wouldn't be a big deal. Watching the live broadcast and seeing the CNN picture you can tell there were a lot of people there, but fewer than Obama's. I don't get why Trump's people didn't just come out and say something along the lines of:"We don't have the exact figures of the attendance, and it isn't something the President is concerned with. The inauguration is over, and the President would like to thank every person who attended for their enthusiastic support, but now the work of government begins, starting with our plan to put a wall around every single individual Mexican..."
Because the media continues to turn every rock pebble and stone to find ways to delegitimize our president.
Being the bigger man doesn't work with these people.
Kinda ironic coming from the "you go low, we go high" people to be so petulant and hateful towards our rightly elected leader.
i also took an online quiz that said i was a giraffe. and i guess you're dumb enough to believe that i must be because the internet said so.
Sure it does, Dubya did not get treated like this.
He just pushed a story of electoral fraud and his source was a professional golfer who was in line with people "who did not look as if they should be allowed to vote". This is what is motivating the president, it is sad.

I wasn't following American media back in GWB's days, but all I saw in Europe was "haha Bush pushed a pull door look at this moron!!!" 24/7The truth of the matter is, if you're a high-profile Republican, a large part of the MSM will consider it their duty to "hold you to account". Unfortunately, in this specific case, it's just code for "find things to make fun of you".That's not to say that Trump's administration *shouldn't* be more responsible, but pretending that it would change much in the media's approach is silly.
With GWB the stories would die out as quick as they came up. Trump has a seriously negative feedback loop with the press. He does something dumb or outrageous the media makes a big deal for a day or two and Trump fires back and on it goes. I agree the media will not change it, but the Trump administration can end a lot of this nonsense more easily than the entire MSM conglomerate.
