Trump just tweeted out his most outrageous lie since his fake inauguration crowd brags

- Februari 01, 2018

The President of the United States took to Twitter this morning to tell a bold-faced and obvious lie to the American people.

It appears that Donald Trump is intent on making his infamous January 2017 lie about the crowd size at his inauguration ceremony an annual tradition, as he finally broke a stunning two-day Twitter silence in order to proclaim that his State of the Union address on Tuesday had the highest television ratings in history.

That is demonstrably false, by any measure.

President Obama’s first State of the Union address in 2010 was seen by 48 million Americans, but even that pales in comparison to Bill Clinton’s first State of the Union address in 1993, which racked up an impressive 66 million viewers.

But when it comes to humoring the president’s ego and pandering to his obsessive need to be at the top of numerical qualifiers – whether the subject is the popular vote, Apprentice ratings, or inauguration crowd size – Trump has already proven he’s not the kind of man to let a silly little thing like “facts” stand in his way.
