Child President

Trump Blamed Photographers For His Micro-Crowd Problem

Written by SK Ashby

Our insecure, manchild-in-chief was reportedly so upset by images of his tiny inauguration crowd that he called National Park Service director Michael T. Reynolds and ordered him to produce more photographs that would show a bigger crowd.

In a Saturday phone call, Trump personally ordered Reynolds to produce additional photographs of the previous day’s crowds on the Mall, according to three individuals who have knowledge of the conversation. The president believed that the photos might prove that the media had lied in reporting that attendance had been no better than average. [...]

Word rapidly spread through the agency and Washington. The individuals who informed The Washington Post about the call did so on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the conversation.

Reynolds produced more photographs, but new photographs obviously did not change the size of the crowd because that's not how physical reality works.

Trump's people responded to the Washington Post's inquiries by saying this just shows Trump is someone who "takes action and gets things done," as if taking action to compensate for your huge ego and relatively tiny dick is somehow admirable.
