We’ve all seen the overshared meme showing a sparsely attended Inauguration portrayed by the left.
But one man breaks down these photographs in HIGH DEF to prove that Trump’s Inauguration just may well have been the most watched in history.

The administration has pushed back on media reports that it was sparsely attended. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer leveled a full-throated attack against the press for reporting on the attendance, calling Trump’s Inauguration the “most-watched” in history.
This image went viral, comparing the attendance of both Inaugurals. It has since been proven misleading, at best.

The above photo is all the way back to two blocks away from the base of the Washington Monument. That is a distance of approximately 1 mile.
