Wow, television ratings just out: 31 million people watched the Inauguration, 11 million more than the very good ratings from 4 years ago!

Spicer's claim that Trump's crowd was the "largest" was quickly disproved with the help of robust evidence, including satellite images and others photographs that showed Friday's attendance easily dwarfed by the audience at President Obama's 2009 inaugural ceremony.

When asked about the veracity of Mr. Spicer's claims, she said he had given "alternative facts".

Discussing Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway's widely-mocked insistence that the Trump administration is relying on "alternative facts", Rather insisted, "none of us can go into this world with alternative facts".

The presenter Chuck Todd replied that four out of five of these claims were proven to be untrue, and that "alternative facts" were not facts: "they're falsehoods". "They're falsehoods", host Chuck Todd retorted as the interview grew increasingly heated.

The president seemed to once again push this argument at his news conference earlier this month when he said, "I'm not releasing the tax returns because, as you know, they're under audit". By comparison, nearly 38 million views watched Obama's first swearing-in ceremony in 2009 and 41.8 million viewers for Ronald Reagan's first inaugural, according to data reported by Nielsen.

Democrats shouldn't be playing political games that mess with the core functions of government like Republicans did when they shut down the government, or when they left the Supreme Court with eight justices because they refused to vote on President Obama's Supreme Court nominee. "Donald Trump's been here for about eight hours".

"People didn't care", Conway said.

"I believe that we have to be honest with the American people", he said. Todd said he was simply "befuddled".

"I have a running war with the media".

He added: "We're going to fight back tooth and nail every day and twice on Sunday".

"Instead, as described in the White House pool report: "[Spicer] delivered angry remarks regarding what he considered inaccurate and unfair press coverage over the past 48 hours, including tweets about an MLK bust in the Oval office, the crowd size coverage, and the tone of the POTUS's Central Intelligence Agency visit earlier".
