Selective Memory

Photo published for The Numbers Are In: Trump's Inauguration Crowd Was 1/7th The Size Of Obama's

Donald Trump is obsessed with figures and poll ratings except where they don't serve his purpose.

In the statement below Team Trump hails the result of the 2016 presidential election while glossing over the fact that Barack Obama and Bill Clinton both achieved more impressive results with their election victories.

Just as the turnout on inauguration day for Barack Obama back in 2009 dwarfed the numbers that turned up in Washington DC yesterday for Donald's big day.

The other big number that Trump fails to mention is that he actually lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by 3 million votes (65 to 62 million), unlike his recent Republican predecessors.
