Based on how upset Donald Trump got when it was revealed just how sparsely attended his presidential inauguration was compared to that of Barack Obama, he’ll probably be ultra-angry when he discovers these tweets from Thursday.
This was the scene from Thursday’s national Christmas tree lighting ceremony where the crowd was, um, a little light.
Traditionally the White House Christmas tree lighting is standing room only. This is what it looked like tonight as President Trump spoke.

The National Tree Lighting ceremony was beautiful this evening – but hard not to notice the empty seats. #Christmas #DMV #USA pic.twitter.com/oKMrnnBekG

Someone forgot to post a craigslist ad to fill the seats for Trump at the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony. pic.twitter.com/6DmXtEkiBw

Naturally, there were also photos of last year’s lighting ceremony when Obama was presiding. Let’s compare the photos, shall we?

Biggest crowd ever to watch the National Tree Lighting ceremony. Of course, only if you ignore President Obama’s. pic.twitter.com/em2vWaR9GO

Unless you want to make @realDonaldTrump very unhappy, DO NOT retweet these photos showing how many more people showed up for @BarackObama’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony. pic.twitter.com/g57SsIct57

As you can clearly see, Trump’s crowd size was the largest that’s ever been seen. It’s yuge, really.
