White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus defended Press Secretary Sean Spicer decision to attack the media over reporting regarding crowd size at President Trump’s inauguration.
“It’s not about crowd size. It’s about honesty in the media,” Priebus told Fox News’ Chris Wallace. “The media, from day one, has been talking about delegitimizing the election, talking about the Russians, talking about everything you can imagine except the fact that we need to move this country forward.”
Wallace then confronted Priebus with two pictures: one showing Donald Trump’s inauguration and the other showing Barack Obama’s inauguration. The difference in the size of the crowd is notable.
However, Priebus pointed out that the picture of Trump’s inauguration was taken before Trump took the podium for his inaugural address. There are other pictures of Trump’s inauguration that do show a very sizable crowd.
