Women's Protest Marches and Trump's White House Attempts To Lie About Inauguration Crowd Size

Mother Jones November 2015
AOL and virtually all US media (other than Fox News) reported on the Women Against Trump Marches across the globe. AOL's piece focuses on the DC march, but know women across the globe in major cities showed solidarity against potential repression from Trump and his GOP.
While organizers estimated numbers drew attention, it is worthwhile to know the Trump message department is reported to have prohibited publication of numbers estimates for park officials. Controlling the message far exceeded stifling customer crowd size reporting from park officials. How aobut an outright insult to the world.

For the life of the "Presstitute." Carry the decided-on message to the public regardless of the reality the message is an obvious lie. 




Talking Points Memo covered it well, but let's take a look and read about Spicer's lie from an award winning fact-checker: The Tampa Bay Times Politifact.

Spicer "That was the largest audience to witness an inauguration, period."
Sean Spicer on Saturday, January 21st, 2017 in a press conference Pants on Fire!
Here is the Politifact piece regarding Trump and Spicer's attempt to shape the message from the White House. Before the piece, recognize the real disgust goes beyond Spicer's lies; images of the crowd size clearly shows Spicer as a deliverer of a bold lie. The real disgust is outright and over-the-top lies from Trump and his Press Secretary when images and data show differently. How can they disrespect the mentality of all Americans?

Donald Trump had biggest inaugural crowd ever? Metrics don't show it

"Alternative facts." So, we are now seeing a molding and reshaping the US message vernacular to accommodate outright lies from the Trump White House. What is an "alternative fact?" I have never heard the phrase and there is something about the phrase that reads much more simply as "lying."

Washington DC Transit Authority also reported record ridership.





Protest numbers far exceeded expectations.
