“This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period.” – Sean Spicer #SpicerFacts
THE KREMLIN ON THE POTOMAC has solidified their image in the very first act by White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
It’s our lying eyes.

In a visit to the Central Intelligence Agency intended to showcase his support for the intelligence community, Mr. Trump ignored his own repeated public statements criticizing the intelligence community, a group he compared to Nazis just over a week ago.
He also called journalists “among the most dishonest human beings on earth,” and he said that up to 1.5 million people had attended his inauguration, a claim that photographs disproved. […]
