Apparently stung by reports that the inaugural turnout for President Donald Trump was smaller than in recent years, the Trump administration held a press conference on Saturday evening in which newly minted Press Secretary Sean Spicer angrily insisted Friday's crowd was "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration -- period."

While a definitive crowd size figure is hard to come by, current estimates hover at around 250,000 attendees, a number that was dwarfed on Saturday by the number of protesters attending the Women's March on Washington. Social media users responded with a mixture of scorn and disbelief that one of Spicer's first major press appearances would be to float such an easily disproven lie and then refuse to take questions.
