Donald Trump campaigned on his ability to draw huge crowd sizes, but the turnout for his inauguration was downright embarrassing.
According to Dan Gross, the Deputy Communications Director for Planning and Execution for the City of New York, just 250,000 people attended Donald's swearing-in.
In 2009, 1,000,000 people showed up for President Obama's inauguration followed by a massive 1,800,000 attendees in 2013.
It wasn't just the ceremony itself that people decided to skip. The parade had more participants than viewers as Donald made his way down Pennsylvania Ave.
The Trump spokespeople have attempted to blame the low turnout on the weather, but let's remind everyone that back in 2009 it was just 28º outside.
According to WMATA, the Washington area transit authority recorded 193,000 trips that had been taken on the city's subway system at 11am. At the same hour in 2009, that number was 513,000. The same time for the second Obama inauguration saw 317,000 riders, and President George W. Bush's second inauguration saw 197,000 riders by 11am.
It's a dismal day for America.
