It is said that “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words” but when White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer declared that the media faked low attendance at Trumps Inauguration does not stack up against photos and videos of the event which clearly show low attendance. In his blistering debut as White House press secretary on Saturday, Spicer accused journalists of reporting inaccurate crowd numbers and using misrepresentative photographs “to minimize the enormous support” that he claimed the new president enjoyed at his swearing-in.  Clearly, President Trump and his administration are not able to separate facts from fiction.  

Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to President Donald Trump, said the White House press secretary gave "alternative facts" when he inaccurately described the inauguration crowd as "the largest ever" during his first appearance before the press this weekend. Spicer gathered the press to deliver a five-minute statement Saturday in which he issued multiple falsehoods, declaring erroneously the number of people who used the D.C. metro on Friday. There was a change in security measures this year and that "this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe”, which was totally inaccurate. 

A source told CNN that Trump was enraged about photographic comparisons of the two inaugurations. Trump publicly complained about media coverage of the size of his inauguration crowd during a visit to CIA headquarters Saturday. Hours later, Spicer followed suit in the White House briefing room, then left without taking questions.  Overall, President Trump’s presidency is not starting out on a positive note with the Media. Trump is about to get Trumped.
