Spicer held a press conference Saturday where he claimed the crowd to witness Trump’s swear-in Friday was the biggest of all time … including physical, TV and digital viewers. Spicer blamed white tarps laid out in front of The Capitol for highlighting the empty spots in the crowd.
The PS didn’t stop there — he also said stricter security measures this year led to Inaugural attendees getting to their spots late — after the photo of the crowd was taken.
He also gave some public transportation stats for Trump vs. Obama‘s last Inauguration.
