The media doesn’t get it! And Sean Spicer has something to say about it. He said that the news media who said Trumps crowd was tiny are all liars.
It’s about time, reporters can’t go out and lie to people. Some reporters compared Trump’s inauguration with the celebration of Obama’s presidency, and claimed that the crowd was ‘tiny.’
The social networks were flooded with a photo that compares both inaugurations, and the new White House press secretary couldn’t take it anymore. Reporters got what they were looking for.

“The media was engaged in false reporting,” Spicer stated. “One, a particular egregious example, was when a reporter falsely tweeted out that bust of MLK Jr. was removed from Oval Office. This was irresponsible and reckless. Secondly, photos of the inauguration proceeding were framed in a way to minimize enormous support that had gathered on the mall.”
“Inaccurate numbers involving crowd size were also tweeted,” he added. “The national park service does not put any out, but we do know a few things, so let’s go through the facts.”
“These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong. This kind of dishonesty in the media is making it more default” for the President to take care of his country, and the people who live in it.
The secretary didn’t answer any of the questions thrown by reporters.
What do you think of Spicer’s defense?
