Donald Trump just can’t come to terms with the fact that the majority of America can’t stand him. He has been bragging about how many people showed up to watch him be sworn in as
grand wizard president but those massive crowds are nothing more than a figment of his own orange-tinged imagination.
The crowds on Friday were absolutely dismal when compared to the numbers seen at both President Obama’s inauguration and the Women’s March on Washington that took place Saturday. The internet has been taking quite a bit of pleasure in pointing this out and Trump’s fragile ego is cracking under the pressure.
So, Trump decided that he would post pics of the crowd at his inauguration in the White House press briefing room to show everybody that the American people really do like him after all. CNN’s Jim Acosta, who endured Trump’s fury during a recent press conference, tweeted this on Saturday afternoon:

Go figure, the internet can’t quit laughing at Trump’s humiliating level of desperation. Acosta’s colleague Jeremy Diamond noted the deceptive angle of the photos that attempt to make the crowd appear much larger than it actually was.
Pictures that don’t show where the crowd ends. About half the picture is VIP seating, for scale https://t.co/BtWAjjSlGD

As for the rest of Twitter, well, let’s just say they weren’t impressed by Trump’s failed try at optical illusions.

And some Twitter users were also happy to give Mango Mussolini a friendly reality check.

You don’t get much more pathetic than this.
