It is very irritating to see people believing in false information and spreading ignorance instead of true facts about an issue so minor as the size of crowd that attended the inauguration of Donald Trump. People fail to check facts and just because the insult fits their own beliefs, they choose to go with it. These photos below show actual FACTS. While it is clear more individuals attended Barack Obama's inaugurations in 2009 and 2013. It is not to the extent corporate news and social media like to portray.
People! They have a very open agenda. Corporate media wants to CONTROL information, NOT report truths! They want you to be swayed in whatever way they choose and you consistently tow the line. It doesn’t matter how you feel about the president! Stop believing everything! Do your own research! This took me 20 minutes to find out the truth by simply looking at the raw feeds from the whitehouse.gov videos of the inaugurations and comparing scenes during the speeches! Not hard!
The photo spreading around the internet and news showing the low turnout at Trump’s inauguration was taken in the morning BEFORE the speech, or a significant turnout. The photo of Obama’s inauguration was taken DURING his speech.
This is the REAL photo of Trump’s Inauguration audience DURING the speech in 2017, from recorded footage available from Whitehouse.gov. As you can see it spreads all the way back to the Washington Monument. It also overflows into the street and side view on the right of the image.
Here is a wider angle of the crowd spilling over into the street in the right middle of the image.
Below is the photo from the 2009 Inauguration speech of Barack Obama DURING the speech. In this photo you can clearly see the crowd spreads all the way back to the Washington Monument as well. It also appears to be more filled in.
Here is a photo from the 2013 inauguration of Barack Obama DURING the speech. It is very comparable to the 2017 inauguration image.
In addition to the rhetoric about the disparities in the crowd sizes, here are some key differences that should be accounted for.
First, security measures were changed this year and according to attendees of the ceremony, access to the area was more restrictive and included additional barricades not present in the past. Also, it rained at the 2017 inauguration. In the 2009 and 2013 inaugurations it did not rain. It is likely people came earlier and stayed later in those years.
To say the crowd DURING the speeches was drastically different and showing images that do not directly correlate with the correct time of day is blatant manipulation of the news. This is no less unethical and just as disgraceful as untruths or exaggerations that may have been made by President Trump. Look a little closer at what is happening people. While President Trump has an Ego the size of the moon, and a personality craving constant approval, keep in mind, it was society that helped inflate his ego when they idolized him on his reality show and bowed down to him at his beauty pageants. Perhaps if the majority of the world didn't idolize him then, he would have half the ego he has now. Just a thought.
Call this writer any name you choose and place him in any small box or category of individuals you want to. The truth is this researcher is not partial to any politician, and is not defined by any category you can name. He simply seeks what is factual and true and remains open to information as it comes forward. Stop being bamboozled by every statement made by profit seeking, agenda based, bias news sources and you may start to see the pattern of actual truth which lies within every story.
