'I See You Like Alternative Photography,' Trump Tweets Inauguration Pic With Suspect Large Crowd and Gets Hysterically Dragged

Size is all that matters to POTUS.

Published January 24, 2017

President Donald Trump and his cabinet are showing no signs that they plan to stop pushing their views on the American people. Just days after one of Trump's primary advisors Kellyanne Conway introduced the world to the terrifying idea of "alternative facts" on Meet the Press, Trump himself shared some facts of his own when he took to Twitter to share a photo of last week's inauguration that appears to show a much larger crowd than those watching on TV saw with their own eyes.

This time, though, Twitter is pushing back with "alternative facts" of its own. Social media users ruthlessly dragged POTUS for his rose-tinted view of very recent history and made sure to "@" him with their findings.

  1. It all started on Tuesday morning when Trump took to Twitter...

    ...to share a photograph of the inauguration that he says will now be hung in the upper and lower press halls, a sign that he has no intention of making peace with the press after both parties had extremely different understandings in regard to how many citizens took part in the inaugural celebration.

  2. Many quickly took to Twitter to prod at Trump's other size-related insecurities

    Others couldn't help but compare Trump's noted smaller audience size when measured against Barack Obama's in 2008 and 2012 to another size insecurity that has stung Trump in the past.

  3. Others couldn't help but compare Trump's and Obama's inaugurations:
  4. Hilariously, users noticed that Trump had gotten the date wrong

    His ceremony took place on January 20, but the photo states the picture was taken on January 21.

  5. But wait, it wasn't an error, it was an 'alternative date':
  6. Others jokingly praised Trump's 'alternative photography'...

    In the end, though, people worked to dispel the misleading photo that Trump is promoting. 

    Trump can post whatever he wants to Twitter, but at some point, he'll have to face the actual facts.
