I believe very little of what the liberal media says. They take one sentence of a topic Trump was talking about and make a big deal out of it. I agree with O’Bannon, he said to keep quite. That is better since they won’t tell the truth.

For two years I have compared media sources.Only one that reports truthfully. FOX News.. the other media Outlets such as CNBC CNN ABC NBC CBS are all owned and controlled by Liberals. They are playing very dangerous games by misleading the people of the United States to fulfill their Globalism agendas. It is very hard for many Democrats to believe this could really be going on, but It Is! They will freek out and go after TRUMP with all they have and they have a lot! Fear will drive them to district ion and their money will help them get there.
The people are onto the Government and will not permit it to run like before ever again. This is supposed to be a Government of the people and for the people not the greedy liberal, docrats.
Make America Great Again!
Just wait and see..

Comparing the 2 photos was really a display of their anti Trump campaign!! When the bare photo was shown, “crowd slow due to rain & lengthy security inspection ” Show a photo when he was actually speaking, it’s on tape! President Trump, keep working on important matters, NOT their LIES!!!!
January 25, 2017,9:48 am
Yes they are. BUT pick your battles Mr. Trump.,…you’ve done so much in 2 days their heads are spinning. When you speak ..,..speak to the issues. Not how you “feel” about the crap they are spewing. Those of us that support you don’t need you to be responding to their childish behavoir like a lunatic. You’re going to do a lot of good things …..focus on that. And only TWEET informationally not in response to them. Got it? Glad I could help.

I am so disgusted with what I am witnessing in real-time. The democrats, led by communist/socialist Soros and the media, are in collusion to mislead the American people on a daily basis. Sometimes I briefly watch these other channels just to listen to how they are covering Donald Trump. He has accomplished more in 4 days that Barack Obama accomplished in eight years. The guy basically played golf and went on vacation on the taxpayer dime. I cannot believe how they will take bits and pieces of what is said by any of Trump’s people and twist them around to fit their narrative of what they want the American people to think. I thank GOD that we have a person who is willing to fight back. The crowds were huge for Trump and Obama, however, more people watched on their televisions, tablets, computers, and phone than at anytime in history. The media showed deceptive photographs of Trump’s crowds. It is despicable. Everyone needs to boycott SNL. This show actually used to be funny, however, now it has become a disgusting display of left-wing lunacy. The tweet about Donald Trump’s precious 10-year old son is a disgrace to humanity. It sickens me to my core to think that these people do these vial things. Madonna has always been a disgrace to the human race. She and Ashley Judd are an embarrassment to women everywhere. I specifically took a day off from work to watch the historical inauguration from home, which is a rarity for me. I hope that many women show up for the march in Washington this week for the Pro-life movement. If I did not have to work, I would be there. I would also advise everyone on this website who has morals and ethics to sign the petition to have the SNL writer fired (suspension is not enough). We need to fight back and now is the time. We also need to, somehow, fight to get on a ballot in every state to limit terms for congressmen and women. They should not be there for life. The media will pay for their deception one day.

Anyone with common sense knows the crowds were huge. They are all just lying. and wanting to miss lead the public.Maybe this picture they posted was when people were first arriving..Just remember these people are all trouble makers friends OF HILLARY”S. And everyone knows what a evil evil person she is. Hillary will do anything to try to make you look bad. MOST OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LOVE YOU. SO STAY STRONG AND PUT YOUR FAITH IN GOD. REMEMBER OUR COUNTRY WAS BUILT ON A CHRISTIAN NATION.. AND I TRULY BELIEVE GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE IF YOU WILL SEEK HIM IN YOUR DECISIONS CONCERNING THE WAYS TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. GOD WILL LEAD YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. WITH GOD ON YOUR SIDE OUR COUNTRY WILL BE GREAT AGAIN.
January 24, 2017,6:20 am
My wife and I remarked how the streets were full all the way back as far as your eyes could see!! It was un-believable!!! oh ,And for the record Madonna should be arrested!! you or I would already been arrested and put in Jail!!1 who the Hell do these so called celebrities think they are .!!!
January 23, 2017,10:38 pm
I do believe the media should be called out for inaccurate reporting and strongly feel that it should be done only on issues of importance that affect Americans. However, interrupting a briefing with the CIA to hold a press conference on national television to address “mine is bigger than anyone else’s” is beyond petty and childish. The inauguration was beautiful but the size of attendees is not important. I realize he has a big ego and that is OK. I still believe he will do an outstanding job and hopefully everyone will see that he is good for the country..
January 23, 2017,10:11 pm
The picture that was shown as a comparison to Obama’s ignauration was taken around 10 am when there were still many people to arrive. Watching the ignauration that was recorded shows pictures of crowds there as far a one could see. The main stream media always lies about Trump.
January 23, 2017,9:20 pm
You would think the size of a crowd didn’t matter so much as the fact that almost all states voted for Trump. That is why the electoral college is so important to keep. Without it, 3 states would always determine the outcome. Also, many people watched on television (FOX News mostly), computers, iPhones, etc. The media just hates to look small so must build themselves up anyway they can.
January 23, 2017,8:53 pm
I am certain, even without looking at the pics. , that Obama , first black POTUS , in an area that is almost 90 % Dem, ( Not to mention black ) had a larger crowd. The media who absolutely hates Trump does not want to give him any kind of fairness . The pic. of Trump’s crowd was taken much earlier than that of Obama’s inauguration
January 23, 2017,7:54 pm
I watched it on TV and the crowd was so big, I wondered how many people were there, it was packed. But this morning there was a News Reporter that had 2 pictures 1 of the crowd at Obamas Inauguration and 1 of President Donald’s Trump and it was not what I had seen on the TV it looked like 2 3rds of the people were gone. The News Media is a Lying Corrupt Organization

The point is everything has been used to discredit President Trump from the very first day he decided to declare his candidacy for President!!! The press has been attacking Trump at every turn because those who have taken control of America using the power they have gained against the American people do not own this President and they found no way to blackmail him as they have done so many of the best politicians over the past fifty years!!! This group of Globalists who are following the fascist plan that was used to assume control over the German people in the 1930’s and was also used by those in America during that time period to turn America into a fascist state in an effort to take over the world population gaining full control over humanity!!! One of the leaders in America was Prescott Bush the father of George Herbert Walker Bush!!! Prescott was a tire salesman who married Herbert Walker’s( the owner of the Union Bank of New York) daughter!!! He committed treason by operating Nazi businesses in North America but since marrying into a family that was considered a pillar of society he was never brought up on charges even though those lower on the social scale were tried and setenced for similar actions!!! The whole story must come out and will be better revealed if you take the time to go to U-Tube and watch the video on the three Generations of Treason by the Bushes from helping Nazi Germany to George H.W.Bush killing President Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and then John Kennedy Junior after he found out the truth about his fathers demise!!! The availability and access that the majority of Americans had to the internet was what saved the country from collapsing completely under the threat presented by globalism!!!I have sent out several emails describing the full picture of how over the past 50 years the U.S. has been led by leaders who have lied their way into office while expounding a great hatred for all that has made America great!!! From stealing elections under Bill Clinton George W. Bush, Obama and came very close to stealing the 2016 election for Hillary which would have been the final straw that broke the camels back!!!The story has been laid out and detailed so that every American who truly cares about the country and their future as well as the future for everyone they love is made aware of the truth about how desperate all has become!!! President Trump has been attacked from every sector in this country!!! The rioting and marches carried out in Washington this past weekend included fifty two groups with most being paid by George Soros the front person for the Rothchild, and Rockerfeller families who are supplying the money!!! Advertisements went out in publications across the nation offering people willing to riot 2500. dollars each for a weekend of rioting so that Americans would be convinced of a great rift between the people across the nation with the fuRther offer of a monthly income of 2500 dollars to continue to be involved!!! The picture taken showed very few people in the area from the podium to the Washington monument at 8:30 a,m. to further push the lie that the President had no support from the people!!! The other message tweeted out stated that the statue of M.L.K.2 had been removed from the whitehouse!!! These were two false stories meant to deceive the people with even more lies which the globalists will not stop as they see their grip on power fading into oblivion!!! This is the time to defeat this enemy who sought to destroy humanity!!! They have used everything possible against President Trump and must been defeated once and for all!!! All Patriots are called to stand in defense of the Republic or lose everything you have forever!!! The plot has been leading America in a downward spiral to the edge of a cliff that could have spelled the end of the Republic!!! Thank God for the good people who have continued to fight the good fight but the war is not over!!! Stand up all you who are proud Americans and defeat all that comes against the freedoms you all share!!! GOD bless America!!!

Yes, I was there! The mall was jam packed for the swearing-in ceremony and everyone was happy!
Also, the DC Metro trains were overpacked, long lines, train delays, but we still got around alright. No major problems! A great day for America!
January 23, 2017,5:37 pm
I watched the inauguration all day Friday and the crowds were huge. Don’t why the liberal media think they have to lie about everything and anything. I guess if your a liberal, that’s just what you do.
January 23, 2017,5:12 pm
Of COURSE they’re lying! The media (except Fox News and OAN) are unable to report the truth. Sad…..
January 23, 2017,5:10 pm
When the time of day for each picture is released – HONESTLY!! – Then you will see that one (Trumps) was taken early …many hours before Trump’s Inauguration when people still had hours and hours left to arrive, and Trump supporters were being held back by the lying Soros/Clinton mobs, The Obama pic was taken just as he was speaking. Therefore you can not compare the two pictures;,it is like comparing Trump apples to Obamatoads Never works!!
January 23, 2017,5:09 pm
YES the media is LYING about the inauguration AND have lied about so many other things!! PRESIDENT TRUMP KEEP TWEETING!
January 23, 2017,5:05 pm
The Media has been lying to us for decades. Two years ago it was shown to The People/The Public that they have been the biggest liars around. Yet they keep lying! WE The People saw how many people were there so why is the Media lying about it? Some idiots will never learn!
January 23, 2017,5:01 pm
We all saw how many were there now let’s move on to the next scandal with the scum bag media! Liars
January 23, 2017,4:53 pm
who cares? He should not be wasting time with this, now that he is president Not a good way to start his administration
January 23, 2017,4:51 pm
A picture worth a thousand words.
