‘Tiny hands, tiny crowds’: Internet laughs at puny crowds at Trump’s inauguration

Published

on

Donald Trump is now officially president of the United States, but his inauguration didn’t draw the massive crowds of enthusiastic supporters that Barack Obama’s did in 2009.

While official crowd figures haven’t been released yet, photographs make it clear that there was a lot of empty space on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. during Trump’s inauguration. Obama’s inauguration, by contrast, saw the National Mall completely packed, and drew an estimated 1.8 million people.

The crowds at the Trump inauguration were positively puny compared to the ones at Obama’s — and the internet couldn’t help but point and laugh.

Among other things, Twitter users wrote about how it must drive Trump insane to draw such a comparably tiny crowd, especially given how much he used to boast about crowd size during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Check out some of Twitter’s best reactions below.

Amy Klobuchar wins endorsement in first in the nation primary from the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper

Published

Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) received a big endorsement on Saturday evening when her 2020 bid was endorsed by the New Hampshire Union Leader newspaper.

"If there is to be any realistic challenge to Trump in November, the Democratic nominee needs to have a proven and substantial record of accomplishment across party lines, an ability to unite rather than divide, and the strength and stamina to go toe-to-toe with the Tweeter-in-Chief," the newspaper wrote. "That would be U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota. She is sharp and witty, with a commanding understanding of both history and the inner workings of Capitol Hill."
