Memo to the new White House press secretary Sean Spicer: if you're going to accuse the media of being dishonest, make sure your own facts are 100% watertight.

Although Mr Spicer said that no one had numbers for Donald Trump's inauguration, he also claimed: “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period … These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm for the inauguration are shameful and wrong.”

Mr Spicer, who did not take questions, added that the new administration intended to "hold the press accountable".

Oddly Washington's Metro system said trips were down on previous inaugurations. Marketing firm Nielsen said television views in the US were less than Barack Obama's and Ronald Reagan's first inaugurations.

Details:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-38707722
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017...ess-secretary/

If this is the new administration's reaction on DAY ONE to a dispute over inaugural attendance figures, God knows how they will react when a real crisis occurs.

I'm not the only VEF member who spotted the authoritarian nature of yesterday's actions by the new administration (thank you Mr Wendigo):

Good Luck America...the sight of your President standing in front of the CIA memorial to the agents who made the supreme saceifice for the USA, having a rant about the 'dishonest' media was depressing...

Your going to really be depressed in the next 100 days then because things are going to change.That's what he's said he's going to do and I believe that's what he'll do.America has twisted it's self in knots trying to please everyone for too long.It's time for the President of the USA to look after this country and it's people.Trying to please everyone almost always ends up pissing everyone off because you end up lying to everybody.This country has been no good to it's own or anyone else for several years.

History will remember President Trump for his choices of whom he serves and whom he will cast out from fair consideration. If he makes fair and honest choices he might achieve good and valid changes; and after all it is not the mark of success from previous administrations that Mr Trump has won and the more-of-the-same candidate has been beaten. No amount of quibbling and of suddenly discovering that they don't like how the US constitution is written can get the Democrats around the point that they lost to one of the worst Republican tickets in living memory. That is the bottom line. So here we now are, and we have no choice except to watch the story unfold. No matter how badly Mr Trump governs, my first port of reproach shall be the Democrats and their fraudulent nomination of a candidate the American people quite justifiably refused to accept.

History may well condemn Donald Trump but it sure as Hell ought to condemn Hillary Clinton and Deborah Wasserman-Schultz.

Yes I heard President Trump say: America first.

But being a cynic, I'll wait and see whether he delivers on that pledge, or whether I'll be filing that phrase alongside "Better Together" (a forgettable Remain in EU slogan), "Take Back Control", "Brexit means Brexit", "Red, white and blue Brexit" and that golden oldie from 2007: "British jobs for British workers".

IMO only one standard should be used when judging ALL politicians (thanks "MegaForce"):



But I digress - my point was that for Trump to pontificate about the media reporting of the crowd size at his inauguration on his first full day, didn't make him look Presidential. It made him look petty.

But hey - Trump is the Prez now, so he's going to do things his way.

Because of the position he holds, this con man will have to be treated gingerly by other world leaders. On a personal level I suspect they will see him as the ignorant man-child that he is. I suppose one would have expected a backlash against Obama rule and the democratic party's obsessiveness with identity politics and a general disdain for blue collar America, but to have this obscene and infantile narcissist be the instrument of that backlash carries heavy consequences for the country and indeed the world at large. For me it is not about policy with Trump...though I disagree with him on pretty much everything. Its him. He is not fit for the office. He is the classic demagogue that appeals to the basest of our natures. To anyone who gives a single damn about democracy, this should be a time of great apprehension.

Mal: you should run in 2020. I understand Mr Obama's got a good mate who can help you out with the paperwork.

If Trump starts making excuses I'll start to turn against him because I've heard all the excuses I can stomach the last eight years.People making excuses can't be very sharp because an excuse is an admission of failure.Trump has dealt with people all over the world his whole life,something Obama didn't do and it showed,he never made a deal,he gave in before they ever started talking,something Carter was good at too.I think and hope Trump will make good deals because it will embarrass him if he can't.That's one of the things that makes him different from what we've had,he can be embarrassed.

Russian president Vladimir Putin will call newly sworn-in President Trump in the coming days, a Kremlin spokesman said early Saturday.

Hmmm....

SCENE: The White House

Receptionist: President Trump? I have President Vladimir Putin on line #3.
President Trump: Great - put him through.
President Putin: Hello. Is that President Donald Trump?
President Trump: This is he.
President Putin: Why don't you pass the time by playing a little solitaire?
