  • How Petty is This White House Going to Be?

    "This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period," Spicer said, contradicting all available data.
    Aerial photos have indicated that former president Barack Obama's first inauguration attracted a much larger crowd. Nielsen ratings show that Obama also had a bigger television audience.

    Spicer said, without any evidence, that some photos were "intentionally framed" to downplay Trump's crowd.

    Why do you care?
    "I don't discuss sitting presidents," Mattis tells NPR in an interview. "I believe that you owe a period of quiet."

      How much more petty would it have to be to approach the pettiness of the mainstream fake news?

        Why don't you question why are there so many fake news (like CNN) out there with doctored pictures or faked time stamps trying to make it appeared as if almost no one showed up? Why do they not mention the rain and the threat of violence from the groups that have been promising it for weeks?

        If anything, it is the media and the Trump-haters being so petty with everything and all things Trump.

        Keep this nonsense up, and more will swing over to Trump in 2020. TDS patients never learn, it getting damn embarrassing to be a Democrat.

          It's insignificant so seems petty they would pick this battle. If Trump's crowd wasn't larger, who cares? It doesn't mean anything. It could have been the rain or other factors, so why get upset and lie over it?

              There is the real story.
              Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                Trump didn't care until the media tried to show that hardly anyone went because he is so "unpopular". There are fake news showing only a handful of people and stuff like that. I saw dozens of fake news and fake pictures with fake date/time stamp. One site even accuse Trump himself of faking pictures. Trump always call bullshit when he feels that someone is saying wrong things about him - you know that very well by now and yet you don't blame the media for first blood (again) but call him petty.

                  Yeah, its not just the media anymore, in fact it was never just them.

                  Come to think of it, Stonewall Jackson is the only Democrat poster here that has had anything but flame-bait to offer since last month, at least.
                  I ought to start giving him credit for that,

                    Actually, I am still a registered Democrat. Do I count? My views are a little more developed since I registered at 18. I lean more to Libertarian now.

                      About as petty as most of the threads about Donald Trump and Barack Obama have been on ACG...

                        Because they did not do so. Please show us the proof of these doctored pictures and time stamps...

                          That would also be false. He tweeted and bragged about how big and yuge his event would be starting after he got elected.

                            Spricer, 4 lies in 5 minutes at the 2015 Saturday press rant.

                            This is a perfect example of how easy it is going to be for Russia, China and others to play on the Presidents ego...... He's going to be played like a fiddle.

                            Yes, these petty ego things are very important. They are weaknesses that can be and will be exploited.

                              Unlike Obama who totally played the russians and chinese.
                              If subservience can be considered a form of "playing".

                              We don't yet know how trump will do, but given that he isn't populating his cabinet with yes-men, there is hope he will do a better job than BO.

                              Odd that you would see only Trump's ego as an Achilles heel.
