White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was raked over the coals on Saturday afternoon after claiming on Twitter that “more than one million” Donald Trump supports showed up in the streets of Washington, DC, to support the president who lost to Vice President Joe Biden.
McEnany, who once declared she would never lie to the American public, wrote, “AMAZING! More than one MILLION marchers for President @realDonaldTrump descend on the swamp in support. Best base in political history — we LOVE you guys!!!”
Commenters on Twitter were quick to point that her numbers were not reality-based as you can see below:

It started with a @PressSec lying about crowd size and that’s how it will end. Also, did I hallucinate a press sec who never held a press conference?

Trumpian Mathematics. Multiply Trump rallies x100. Divide Opponent ralies by 100.

Keyleigh – they EXPECTED more than a million people to show up. In reality, it was only 1-2 thousand, less than 0.2% of expected attendance

Math is hard, isn't it Kayleigh? 2,500 is not more than a MILLION. Even in all caps!

We know math isn’t you peoples thing, evidence the election. But anyone can see there were more people celebrating Biden’s win than this.

Here’s how Biden plans to roll back Trump’s executive orders in his first 100 days
On Tuesday, CNN reported that President-elect Joe Biden is already mapping out his agenda for the first 100 days — including a series of actions rolling back outgoing President Donald Trump's executive orders on a wide spectrum of issues.
"Trump officials have gutted or hamstrung agencies whose charters clash with the President's long-running efforts to crush what his former chief strategist derisively labeled 'the administrative state,'" reported Gregory Krieg, MJ Lee, and Sarah Mucha. "That means an early effort, Biden indicated in his NBC News interview, to rebuild the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA, he said, has been 'eviscerated' by Trump."
GOP lawmakers buried for meltdown over Biden appointee’s ‘mean tweets’ after years of Trump Twitter insults
On Tuesday morning, the panel on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" expressed both amusement and disgust with Republican lawmakers who are claiming one of President-elect Joe Biden's nominees may have a tough time being approved because she has a history of writing "mean tweets" about their actions and policies.
As host Joe Scarborough observed, those same lawmakers just spent four years either defending -- or pretending they were unaware -- of Donald Trump's habit of slurring and attacking his opponents or detractors on Twitter.
At issue are tweets that were written by Neera Tanden who is currently president of the Center for American Progress and has been nominated by the incoming president to head up the Office of Management and Budget.
Trump demands GOP Georgia governor ‘call off’ election in new Twitter outburst
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted a new demand for Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) to "do something" and overturn the results of the election. Specifically, Trump wants him to "check signatures and count signed envelopes" and then "call off [the] election" because "It won't be needed" — presumably meaning call off the Georgia Senate runoffs because the "real" vote count would show Republicans won outright.
Do something @BrianKempGA. You allowed your state to be scammed. We must check signatures and count signed envelopes against ballots. Then call off election. It won’t be needed. We will all WIN! https://t.co/UiJrlyBGiK
