If you don't see a big difference with that, then I ain't gonna persuade you otherwise...
And what about the "Trump campaign" lies?

Donald Trump had biggest inaugural crowd ever? Metrics don't show it | PolitiFact

False...

Trump was ALSO including live streaming, which was, easily, in the millions...

Quote:
The audience for President Donald Trumpís inauguration hit national news again when his press secretary, Sean Spicer, made the viewership the main focus of a White House press briefing on Saturday. Spicer then addressed the question again during a press conference on Monday. He said that more people watched Trumpís inauguration than ever before. Some were quick to criticize those statements. But what are the facts on this? How many people actually watched Trumpís inauguration as compared to former President Barack Obamaís? According to crowd estimates and Nielsen ratings, Obama did have greater numbers than Trump in both crowd size and TV viewership. However, if you combine viewership and crowd attendance, Trumpís inauguration was indeed one of the most-watched inaugurations of all time. And his live stream viewership may have been the greatest in all time, according to Forbes.

...These ratings donít account for online streaming, which could give Trumpís numbers a big boost. Spicer stressed on Monday that when you add in mobile device livestreaming, like phones and tablets, Trumpís viewership may indeed be the highest.

Because livestream viewing has increased significantly since Obamaís inauguration, thanks to social media and other livestreaming options, itís possible that these numbers could indeed give Trumpís total a big boost if compared to how many streamed Obamaís inauguration. But since overall livestream estimates arenít available, it may not be possible to know the numbers 100 percent. Itís also hard to make an apples-to-apples comparison, since livestream viewing in general is more popular now than it was in 2009. But we can at least get a few hints from the facts that we have.

..Akamai, which is one of the worldís largest content delivery network providers, working with sites like New York Times and Wall Street Journal, recorded up to 7.7 million livestreams at one time, at peak viewing time during Obamaís first inauguration in 2009, CNET reported. According to Tech Crunch, at the peak of Trumpís inauguration, 4.6 million concurrent viewers were watching the inauguration live online. However, weíre not sure if Tech Crunchís number came from the same sources as CNETís original estimate, because the Akamai Vice President later goes on to say that the presidential inauguration was ďthe latest in a series of record-breaking live, online video streaming events that we have supported over the last year.Ē And at the beginning of its story, Tech Crunch says that Trumpís inauguration was ďthe largest, single live news event that Ö Akamai has ever hosted.Ē

...CNN reported more than 160 million page views during Obamaís first inauguration, within a 12-hour time span, including a period of time when the siteís live page apparently went down. In 2017, for Trumpís inauguration, CNN reported 173 million page views throughout the day, slightly edging out Obamaís numbers.

Facebook saw 600,000 status updates, CNET reported. Associated Press reported 8 million live video streams during the inauguration. And Mogulus, a live-streaming service for C-SPAN, USA Today, and other newspapers, had 1 million visitors. MSNBC reported 9 million livestreams, and Fox News reported 5 million streams.
The Left INSISTS on using ONLY the physical attendance because the pictures make them giddy...But when this administration says "watched" or "viewed", the Left pretends it was never said...Even when, as shown, Spicer made that point perfectly clear...

Of course, this post was a waste of my time because no one will say "Oh...Well adding in the views with livestreaming and other forms of internet viewing, I can see how that's possible."...

We'll just get, "No! That doesn't count! I make the rules and what I say goes!!!"...

I am truly shocked at how much of a Trump supporter you have become.

I am not truly shocked that you're such a partisan zealot that you continually make sh*t up to fit your incredibly narrow mindset...
