The Truth About The Trump Inauguration Photo.
Jan 23 2017. | Republican1795.

Posted on 01/22/2017 10:42:13 PM PST by Republican1795.

The photo that the media has been showing of the Trump inauguration, that they have been using to FALSELY assert that the crowd as small, is a DECEPTION. The photo was not taken at noon when Trump was being sown in. Peter Mansbridge, the anchorman of The National on the CBC stated during the Jan 20 broadcast that the photo was taken AN HOUR BEFORE the ceremonies even began! IE: the picture was taken an hour before the 9:30 AM opening ceremonies when the crowd was still filling in at not yet at full capacity! The media is once again engaging in yet another low down dirty manipulation & outright hoax. I watched the Trump inauguration LIVE via television so I knew right away that this media narrative / lie [ of a "small" Trump crowd with the media deceptively using this early MORNING picture] was false as the cameras had panned away during the Trump address showing a large crowd assembled at the moment Trump was sworn in and giving his inaugural address. I notice that no one seems to be pointing out this pertinent and important fact - that the picture in question was taken an hour BEFORE the ceremonies even began! This is yet another MEGA deception that the media is using to try to delegitimize Donald Trump. I hope that Trump himself could address this mega deception to the public.

Thank you. I’ve been posting the real pics in response to the fake comparison pic every time I see it.

Reuters, CNN, PBS and who knows how many others put their stamp of approval on that lie of a pic.

What is truly pathetic is that the libs having gone into frothing mode trying to claim that Trump and his people are lying. We are only a couple of days into his presidency and they are already deranged.

I know that photo was taken at 9:30 am because I was watching live on C-span and noted that the mall was filling up at that time....by the time President Trump spoke....there were people ALL the way back to the end of the mall....it made me so happy that all of those anarchist did not scare away the people.....SO THE MEDIA LIES!!!! And in other news....grass is green and the sky is blue...LOL

I was watching the tube early and saw the pix of the mall with the white areas. The announcer said the white tiles were to prevent getting in mud and that the parks dept could better estimate the crowd size with them. The pix that MSM including FOX is showing is taken very early before anything started and the announcer said people were just filing in. Even Chris Wallace is pushing the lie about the pix. Pixs exist of the mall when Trump was speaking but they don’t show em. Wallace needs to join George Will and exit stage left....lying all the way.

First of all yes the photos to make Trump look bad were taken earlier in the morning, I know because I was watching live. Second of all who cares if Obama got some more…I’m sure every African American in DC would have been at Obama;s and that’s fair enough. Plus a lot of Trump supporters don’t want to be assaulted or what have you and are maybe older and just watched on television far enough.

You’re welcome. This bs out there is really getting to me at times. The awful behavior towards Trump, his family, and supporters are beyond anything I’ve seen other than the Westboro Baptist Church. But, even the WBC didn’t assault others like what took place during campaigns and now the inauguration.

Then the women’s march happened. Nobody harassed them. Nobody yelled at them, blocked then, lit their hair on fire, threw things at them, or hit them. They marched as is their right. But, they did not offer the same rights to Trump supporters. Some Trump supporters drove for days, some spent lots of money to fly in, and all just wanted to celebrate and have a nice day. But, that was too much to ask from Liberals.

And they think they are angels. My goodness - they are hateful, hypocritical snakes.

Not to mention that Obama’s ceremonies had cold temperatures but no rain. The forecast was for rain on Friday which I think more people would avoid than just cold.

Everyone is concerned with how crowded the grounds were and what they missed was that when DJT took to the microphone (literally by his third word) a strong brightness of light came through the clouds for 10-15 secs before the light mist of rain. I was standing on the parade route right in front of the Willard hotel and news media platforms. That should have been reported but all we heard were crickets.

I would like to have Chris Frickin’ Wallace provide an explanation for his deception then, otherwise I’ll write him off as another fake news pusher.

Even Chris Wallace is pushing the lie about the pix.

Saw that exchange between news people and Chris Wallace on Fox, him pushing the narrative with that early photo saying President Trump and Spicer told a "provable lie". Chris Wallace is a piece of filthy excrement for pushing his lie, using an early photo taken long before the crowds filled in for President Trump's inauguration.

Beat me to it posting ;)

I was somewhat surprised how quickly FNC joined in with the meme—Bret Baier, Chris Wallace and others all stating as fact that Obama had bigger inaugural crowds than Trump and that Trump press secretary was lying...Guess they have to take up the slack since Kelly left. Shameful!

Oh how nice it would be if we had a truly fair and balanced network!

Hope all is well with you!

I'm STILL seething, after seeing what you did. A handwritten, nasty note, in my almost perfect PALMER SCRIPT, will be sent off to FNC headquarters, Monday morning.

If they imagined that we'd stop complaining, after BLOODY KELLY LEFT, they have a BIG THINK coming!

Yup, i figured it was just taken at an early time in the morning, given what the crowd looked like when he was giving his speech.

See the uniparty just used an islamic lying tactic here. Partial truths by hyper-specification/omission. Like lawyers use.

It was a genuine photo of the rally that day. The picture is of a smaller crowd. They omit the fact the rally had not yet started but do notmsay that so they can have others assume the rally itself was small and underwhelming. The idea they actually want to convey.

This is why they are dying off.

Very disappointed by even the ‘friendly’ news and coverage, for not doubting the photographs right away. I’m guilty too. Let this be a warning to us all, to suspect every so-called ‘fact’, even photographs, as being either manipulated or taken out of context. I should have known better, given the relentless shenanigans played out during the campaign.

Looks like the only person with the right instinct on this, once again, was Trump.
