Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: January of 2017
Categories: Sean Spicer & Donald Trump
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer grossly overestimated the number of people who attended Donald Trump's inauguration and number of people who watched it on television. He even suggested that it was the largest audience ever to witness one. In fact, the actual crowd at the inauguration was far smaller than many previous Presidential inaugurations and Nielsen Ratings reported that Trump drew 30.6 million viewers, which is far fewer than many previous inaugurations.
