Funny, the fake news crew (CNN, MSNBC), all praised the over a million Trump haters protesting world wide. But when the Trump Adm. factually claimed that Trumps inauguration was the most watched in history world wide, they twisted the facts like pretzels, to try and disprove it! FAKE NEWS! President Trump is never going to be reported on truthfully by the fake news crew! MILLIONS of women voted FOR Trump! You will never hear this from fake news! They are not objectively reporting news. They are CREATING FAKE NEWS to push their agenda! GO TRUMP!!

Not fake news. It is true...... what they reported. 2009 had more people. Anyone who can see knows it's true.

Here is a side-by-side comparison of Obama's 2009 inauguration and Trump's. Both were taken from the same viewpoint: the Smithsonian’s visitor center, called the Castle, looking toward the Capitol just an hour apart on the respective days.

How was the weather during Obama's 2009 inauguration? Was it dry and sunny? It rained during Trump's inauguration so maybe that kept some people away. Also, when Obama was inaugurated in 2009, it was a big deal because he was the first black president and I imagine a lot of black people showed up.

Trump's inauguration drew a large crowd, also millions of others watched it on TV, the internet, and various mobile devices.

Not relevant, because it's not "fake news."

I don't know about the fake news claim, but the method of CNN reporting is obviously anti Republican and pro Democrat. On election night I was watching the coverage on CNN, and after Trump took the lead and was winning more states, one of the CNN reporters, I think it was Jake Tapper, he was acting all nervous and said- "Is there any way she can still win this? Let's examine and review the numbers". LOL, it was hilarious I was laughing so hard.

What part of "Trumps inauguration was the most watched in history world wide," do you not understand? See? You are believing the fake news too! I said NOTHING about the crowd in DC, I was talking about Wash. DC, TV, Internet, etc. WORLD WIDE!! You are focused only on the crowd, as the fake news crew wants you to! FAKE NEWS!!
PS Bet you did take in world wide numbers about the "Women who hate Trump march"!!

I didn't say they report fake news, DadTheKing said that. CNN is pro Democrat and anti Republican, that much is obvious.

I know DadTheKing was the one who was caterwauling about fake news. I was bringing it to your attention that it is not fake news.

I will agree with you that Trump has a huge ego. He won the election and is now the president, but he's still not satisfied because he didn't win the popular vote. He claims that 3 to 5 million votes were cast illegally. He needs to just let this go, there are more important things to be concerned about, he won the electoral vote which is the vote that counts, that's all that matters. Popular vote shouldn't even enter into the discussion because that doesn't elect the president. Trump has his faults, but I support him and believe he'll be a good president, time will reveal how good a job he does.

I feel bad for Trump's press secretary Sean Spicer, he's going to have a tough job. I wonder how long he will last.

Spokesperson Ashley Judd explained to everyone what the so called women's March was all about...she was angry that tampons are subject to sales tax while viagra apparently is not.

She and fellow spokesperson Madonna are both excellent role models for the yutes of America.

These marches and protests all took place in heavily blue areas. They mean nothing to the rest of America, other than entertainment value. The democrat party has relegated itself to the left coast, the northeast, and chicago. They're not even a national party any more, they are strictly regional.

During Obama'sterm, democrats lost more than a thousand seats at the federal, state and local levels. There are only about five states in which the Democrats control the governorship, the state house and the state senate. I believe those are Hawaii, California, Oregon, Delaware and I think Connecticut.

By contrast, clinton lost about 520 seats nationally and bush 43 lost about 320 during their terms. This is how utterly destructive Obama was to his party. Not that there's anything wrong with that

Actually, I think Spicer will be fine. In fact, he will probably enjoy the job more that any republican WH spokesperson ever has.

In the past, republican spokespeople like Dana perino, tony snow etc had to face a hostile media every day and basically take everything that was being said about the president, including personal attacks, without responding directly. Snow and perino were under orders not to fight back against these attacks because their boss (the president ) didn't want to be seen as getting down in the mud with them ("them" being the media)

And, there's something to be said for that.

However, Donald Trump is really the first republican to fight back against what he thinks are lies being told about him or his family. He's fighting back, and the press is literally going berzerk because the attacks that have silenced republican presidents in the past don't work against trump.

Dana perino has admitted that she often gave the finger to reporters that she knew were lying, but she did it under the podium as a way of letting off steam without making it obvious as to what she REALLY thought of them. Spicer, on the other hand, gets to tell them to their face what the president thinks of them. What could be more fun than that?

In fact, if Spicer ever does get tired of the job, I'll volunteer to do it for nothing.
