As demanded by neo- fascist shitgibbon Donald "Rump" Trump, the National Park Service has released comparative photos of the inaugural crowds from 2009 and this past January. Well, he asked for it:
The National Park Service on Monday released hundreds of ground and aerial photographs that its staff shot of President Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration. The agency also released photos of the swearing-ins of former president Barack Obama four and eight years ago.
And it’s pretty clear that the crowd size at the 45th president’s inaugural was smaller than at the swearing-in of the 44th.
The discrepancy is clear in the two photos displayed here, which show the Mall shortly before Obama and Trump were sworn-in around noon eight years apart. The 2009 and 2017 photos were taken one hour — and eight years — apart, with Obama’s crowds massing in the photo about one hour earlier than Trump’s audience.(click on image to enlarge)

Obama's is bigger than yours! As they say, tiny hands, tiny... crowds. Sad!
