Curious statistic: Was the number of people who came down to Washington to demonstrate this weekend larger than the crowd at Trump's inauguration?

Asked by elbanditoroso (28194points) 1 month ago

I have no idea. But if more people demonstrated against him, it would ne a hoot.

You can bet that someone will research it. I wonder if the administration is ready with the perfunctory lie on the topic?

I think the number of people visiting the local state park here this weekend was greater than Trump’s inauguration.

Oh, dear me, what a naughty question.

I don’t think they’re actually demonstrating against him, though, right? Two things are being conflated here.

Of course I hope the answer is yes.

@Jeruba I don’t think any of the protesters started out protesting against him. Unfortunately, he insists that everything done be about him; so,I do think that has changed. He’s succeeded in making this feel personal to many no matter the color of their skin!!!

It wasn’t about him, but by his continually throwing gasoline on the fire he’s made it about him.

Trump’s inauguration was largely blockaded by large, violent crowds of rioters, pretty much the same crowd as coming to the capitol to ‘protest’.

Oh bullshit….

Cardboard cutout made up the difference @Yellowdog !

Are you the only one that knows about the rioters at the inauguration, here’s Google says about rioting crowd blocking the inauguration and I quote:

“It looks like there aren’t any great matches for your search”

@Tropical_Willie – Yellowdog makes things up to suit his fancy.

There was no rioting at the inauguration. Just a lot of people stayed away because they hated Trump.

I know @elbanditoroso ! Just a fact check. . . .

LadyMarissa's avatar

My search resulted in this which claims that there were anti-trump protests. OMG don’t read it as @Yellowdog has posted a million times…NBC news is NOT a reliable source!!! With the way this administration lies, this may well be more fake news!!!

@elbanditoroso cars were vandalized and set ablaze, and windows smashed in,

Traffic was at a crawl or stopped. It was the first time I ever saw the group Antifa.

A black woman I was standing in line with to pay a Comcast bill thought the Antifa rioters were Trump’s people, doing all the vandalism, arson, and head-smashing.
