To The Daily Sun,
What a laugh! You should see my grin. The White House and Fox News are so hurt! What a spanking! Herr Trumpenfuhrer's inauguration had the lowest attendance in recent times. On top of being rejected by the majority and being trounced by 3 million votes it has to hurt to see three times as many women and their allies show up to protest their leader. They are indeed showing it, too.
Just listen to Trump, Spicer, Preibus, Conway, and company with their trite bellyaching. "Alternate facts" Sean Spicer spent his first five minutes of his first White House briefing whining about the estimates of the inauguration versus the women's marches. I feel your pain, Sean.
Crowd scientists Marcel Altenburg and Keith Still at Manchester Metropolitan University estimate that 160,000 attended the inauguration, while they estimate that the Women's March drew 475,000 by 2 p.m. If you've seen the aerials of the inauguration, large swaths of areas have no people while the women's march is full to the brim.
Obama's first inauguration had 1.8 million and his second had a million. Now we have a loser for president. Obama was a gentleman. What did conservatives expect? To come together behind a demagogue, a xenophobe, a misogynist, and a bigot who ran on fear, anger, and divisions? Get real. And what is with Trump having Robert Jeffress, anti-gay, anti-Mormon, anti-Catholic, anti-Muslim, anti-Jew Baptist pastor preaching at a private service for the president-elect and his family on Friday right before Trump was inaugurated? What despicable people.
Sources claim that in Los Angeles, the estimated crowd was 750,000 strong. New York City rocked with 250,000. Chicago crowds were estimated at 150,000-250,000. Boston came in at 135,000-150,000. Denver, 150,000-200,000. Seattle, 130,000. Portland, 100,000. Even London was attended by around 100,000, Toronto, 50,000-60,000 and Austin, 40,000.
Google Docs has been tracking the event counts from sources using aerials and transportation data from around the world. A low estimate of 3.7 million and a high estimate of 4,576,000 persons attended women's protests and marches against the new regime around the globe. Isn't this going to be fun, Donnie?
