Donald Trump began his Presidency of the USA with a BIG lie… and the government disturbingly backed him up.
On the day Trump was sworn in President, it was noted by many media that the crowd turnout was small. The photograph here shows a simple comparison between Obama’s turnout in 2009 and Trump’s in 2017.
Trump reckoned there was 1,500,000 – NO WAY IS THAT TRUE. He said that the media was saying 250,000 but myself and other bloggers don’t know who he was referring too. Sean Spicer, the White House Press Secretary, later stated that it “was the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration – period. Both in person and around the globe.” He ironically criticised journalists for showing the empty spaces.
On, January 22, the day after the inauguration, the Women’s March to Washington a.k.a. The Women’s March Against Trump and the Cabinet He’s Chosen drew an estimated 500,000 to 800,000. The crowd was so large that they filled the side streets as well.
In Trump’s home city of New York, 200,000 protested in front of his hotels. Denver, Seattle, Chicago and Boston had large turnouts too. Dissent also happened in foreign cities, ranging from Cape Town, London and Paris to Sydney and Tokyo. Even people in Antarctica made their voice known via Twitter.
Trump’s approval rating was only 37 percent on the day of the inauguration (the lowest in 20 years), that figure ironically supplied by the infamous Fox News that has supported him. Obama’s approval rating was double that as President Elect.
Men aren’t bad either, cause we’re also human, but more of us have to stand up for constitutional rights such as freedom of religion, freedom of speech and equality. Emphasis on equality!
The world doesn’t need cowards and the silent. We need protesters who have chosen to be politically educated so as to strongly stand for beliefs whilst reminding the politicians that they work for us! We need to say no to the BIG LIARS wherever we find them!
