Trump Inauguration Flops As Thin Crowd And Empty Stands Line Parade Route

Trump’s inauguration is set to go down as one of the biggest flops in presidential history, as the president-elect is going to met with a tiny crowd and empty stands at his inaugural parade.

Video from NBC’s Katy Tur of the parade route from the Capitol to the White House:

This is the kind of reception that a president gets when he comes into office with a 37% approval rating while having lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes.

The scary part is that Inauguration Day is supposed to be one of the high points of a president’s popularity with the American people. If Trump can’t be popular or draw a crowd on the day he takes office, it is only a matter of time until Trump sets records for disapproval.

The trend line for presidents isn’t that they get more popular once they are in office. Donald Trump isn’t even getting a honeymoon. The majority of the American people are rejecting Putin’s attempt at a shotgun wedding against the will of democracy and leaving Trump standing alone at the political altar.
