Crowd For Trump Inaugural Tiny Compared To Massive Turnout For Obama

There is one consensus about the crowd size for Trump’s inauguration. The audience for Trump is much smaller than one that greeted Barack Obama in 2009.

Dylan Byers of CNN noted the small crowd:

People in DC have known for weeks that the turnout for Trump’s inauguration would be small. It is fitting that Metro ridership for Trump is 40% of what Obama had because Trump’s approval rating is around 40% and nearly 60% of the country did not vote for next president.

Here is a photo comparison of the crowd size:

America is clearly not celebrating the inauguration of Donald J. Trump.
