I have alternative facts saying the crowd in my backyard is 20x larger than any of those.
@Cynical Pancakes, my Tip the Scales rally has 800 billion people in attendance. I have the alternative facts to prove it.
@Cynical Pancakes, are you making milkshakes again?
It's insanely petty and ridiculous how much he's arguing about the crowd size. He even wants to have an investigation. This mans ego has no end
@Charlemagne, and his most devout are blaming the public for it. The news keeps asking why spicer lied but gets called petty for bringing up crowd size
@Charlemagne, arguing over the crowd size is stupid for sure, but nothing wrong with the investigation. I've heard from some sources that there a lot of illegal and legal immigrants voting, a lot of them not even knowing that's wrong. Sound stupid? Maybe, except some states give out voter registrations when the immigrants get their drivers licenses and that's the whole process. Not exactly secure. Maybe that's BS, but be worth looking into.
@Oujosh29, In all honesty if I trusted him to have a fair investigation I'd be all for it. But seeing how he's like with the inauguration thing, if the investigation brings back no evidence of illegal voting he will still spin it so he was still right. In my opinion trumps obsession with his ego is his biggest fault.
Don't get me wrong though, if they find something then awesome as then they can fix it next election, I just don't think he could cope with being wrong.
@Oujosh29, Legal immigrants with drivers licenses? You mean legal US citizens, right? AKA people who are entitled to vote. You don't get a US drivers license without being a US citizen.
Also, illegal immigrants don't get drivers licenses lmao. How could they? Going and trying to get one would never work as they'd have to provide proof of residence and whatnot. They'd just get caught.
@Charlemagne, don't worry, Trump's ADHD will mean if nothing comes of the investigation he'll be to busy tweeting about a whole bunch of other stuff to care.
@Cpt Crunch, behind the times huh? Legal immigrants get driver licenses too in all states and some states give out licenses to illegals as well.
@Cpt Crunch, a quick search shows 12 states and Washington DC, yes the nation's capital, issues driver licenses to illegals. Crazy huh?
@Cpt Crunch, You can, in California, get a driver's license as an illegal immigrant. Jerry Brown (current governor) signed it into law. He also signed something that made it so you only need a valid California driver's license to vote.
@Oujosh29, Ah interesting. I'd never heard of this but you are correct.
While I definitely don't agree with illegal immigrants getting to vote (and they aren't supposed to get voter registration when they get their license this I do know), I doubt enough of them get registered for it to make any measurable difference in an election.
If you wanna see some BS that does actually make a huge difference, albeit not in a presidential election, just look into all the gerrymandering that happens. Both parties do it, although it is easier to do against minority groups and therefore the Republicans tend to have more success with it. Now THAT is worth an investigation.
@Cpt Crunch, gerrymandering is litigated all the time, so that is "investigated". And in some states, when you apply for a licenses a voter registration forms is attached whether you are a citizen or not. That's as secure as it is. Are there enough non us citizens voting? Who knows, no one has really looked into it. People just keep saying that there isn't enough illegally voting to make a difference without any numbers to back that up. Maybe it is too little to matter, but might as well look into it. Besides, I have no problem believing a ton of illegals vote in places like California. Hell, California let an illegal be a lawyer and try cases in court, that's how much they care about federal law.
@Charlemagne, I feel like it's a diversion. All the media loves covering this and almost completely ignores all the executive orders he's been signing all week
@Cpt Crunch, um, residents and people with student/work visas can get driver's licences, for your information....
I've been a legal immigrant since 93 and got my citizenship in 2015.
And some states allow illegal immigrants to get driver's licences. I have a family friend who has gone to Colorado to get hers so it can be done.
@Charlemagne, well maybe it's because major news sources are lying and he wants to put an end to it. News networks spew bullshjt and then laugh at anyone who has a negative response.
@Blooreguard Q Kazoo, about the attendance? No that's pretty indisputable. I was only talking about the attendance so I'm not going to argue about anything else
@Charlemagne, those photos are intentionally deceptive. The one for Obongo was taken while he was giving his speech, and the one for Trump was taken 3 hours before the inauguration started, so people were just starting to be let in. The fake news needs to stop.
@Bobaganusche88, His name is Obama and he was your president for 8 years. No matter if you agreed or not with his policies, show him respect.
Even if you look at the time lapse of Trump's inauguration, he had no where near as many people as Obama. It's not arguable, it's a fact. Watch the time lapse for both events and it's plain to see
@Charlemagne, can you link me the video where he said this? I'm doing research
@Charlemagne, yes about the attendance. They took images before everybody got there so it looked like the attendance was low.
@Charlemagne, having a title doesn't mean you automatically deserve respect. Respect is earned through actions, and nothing Obongo, Joe Bite Me, or any of the other Demorats have done in the last 8 years deserves any.
As for your insistence that Trump's crowd was smaller, the satellite images have been analyzed by professional companies which found that at the peak times they were nearly identical (800k for Obongo and 850k for Trump). Quit believing everything you see on tv. All off the major news networks are owned by the Demorats and are used to influence the public with propaganda rather than present facts and let people make up their own minds.
@Bobaganusche88, Obama was the best president of your lifetime kid. You think you're too good to say his name? Grow the fuсk up and quit shooting your mouth off.
@Trump Repellant, while I don't necessarily agree with calling obama "obongo", this is a free country and he has the right to call him whatever he wants, just as much as you have the right to call trump whatever you want
They forgot Hillary's inauguration size: 0.
@MrLampoon, lol best comment ever.
@Oujosh29, #bestcomments is how you realy do it
To be fair, more Trump supporters wanted to be there, but couldn't. They were working.
@smartstu, On a Saturday?
@smartstu, actually there were a lot more people than this at Trump's inauguration. What most people don't realize, and what whoever took the picture doesn't want anyone to know, is that these pictures were taken at different times of the day with Trump's taken early in the morning when most people didn't show up yet.
@MrJojo, it's weird, there's a time lapse video of the whole day and it never really got more crowded than the picture...
@MrJojo, even if that's true, trump never got close to Obamas, and why would Trump get a bigger crowd? Obamas election literally made history. It's silly to think he could beat an historical event.
@Maester Aemon, Trumps inauguration was on a Friday.
@Welcommatt, Which source are you using? I just saw pictures of the comparison and it's true, the media took pictures at an earlier time to make the Trump crowd look smaller.
@Welcommatt, we must be looking at different sources then because I've seen plenty of pictures of crowds maybe not quite as large as obama's, but very comparable. It's no secret that most news outlets are liberally biased so it can require some digging to see the truth.
Also not to mention Obama's inauguration was a huge mark in history as it was the first time the racial barrier was broken, so I feel the whole crowd comparison thing is a bit unfair as it's likely to be a very long time before we see a crowd that large again regardless of who is elected, unless maybe if it's another person of color.
@Oujosh29, I completely agree with you, the crowd sizes mean nothing to me. What I do care about is the spread of misinformation by biased media outlets. And I'm not even a Trump supporter.
@smartstu, how could they be working if they say illegal immigrants are taking all their jobs?
@Welcommatt, saw a reddit thread where it was shown that the time lapse video was altered on CNN.com, but i'm not invested enough to look for it again.
@Weiss, A lot of them have actually started the trip back the Mexico. Which explains why my lawn hasn't been tended to recently.😔
@Puppy, is was altered, you can see a cross edit at 0:46. I don't think it was by cnn though because cnn also released a gigapixel photo of the inauguration that shows a lot more people attending.
Does anything get done in bikini bottom? It seems to me the whole city shuts down every few episodes for one reason or another. Don't these fish have jobs? Families? Hobbies?
Illegals cannot vote, and despite breitbart article, it is not true. I'm a legal resident and cannot vote, I don't show in the system. How can they vote?
