Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 06, 2018

A government photographer edited official pictures of Donald Trump's inauguration to make the crowd appear bigger following a personal intervention from the president, according to newly released documents. The photographer cropped out empty space "where the crowd ended" for a new set of pictures requested by Trump on the first morning of his presidency, after he was angered by images showing his audience was smaller than Barack Obama's in 2009. The records detail a scramble within the National Park Service (NPS) on 21 January 2017 after an early-morning phone call between Trump and the acting NPS director, Michael Reynolds. They also state that Sean Spicer, then White House press secretary, called NPS officials repeatedly that day in pursuit of the more flattering photographs.

"This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration – period."

Sniper agrees.

Enjoy the feeling. There are over 2 years left in Humpy's term. Unless, of course, the "Deep State" coup d'état is successful.

If you're too stupid to realize why a mentally unstable man child is a bad pick for POTUS you're too stupid to speak about it.

Inauguration Day was the first sign Donald had no chance to make it. It's been a non-stop slide since then.

It must pain snoops that his boy turned out to be the biggest friggin snowflake on the planet. Of course anyone that had more than a couple of functioning brain cells knew that before the election.

He is mentally unfit for office.

You still don't know what a snowflake is. I keep hoping someday you will learn but I guess NOT.

The Coup d'etat is already underway, and it is not from Deep State, it is from TRUMP ADMINISTRATION APPOINTED PERSONNEL.

Remember all the wonderful people Trump promised he was gonna appoint? Yeah, it's them.

So, I think we can all agree this isn't the first time you've discussed cropping the pic to make it look bigger, eh?

Trump has taught the whole world what a snowflake looks like.

How tiny is this dude's penis that he has to have his crowd size photoshopped?

The call is coming from INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE!!

So, I guess there are TWO "Deep States" now.

The Deep State (Civil Servants, etc)
And the----------- State (Trump Admin personnel)

These pics are proof that Trump can lie even when his lips aren't moving. Quite the accomplishment.

The etymology of "snowflake" for the snowflakes on the thread:

www.merriam-webster.com

In case it's too big of a word, "etymology" means "word history."

The too long, didn't read version goes like this: the word "snowflake" as slang for a person began in the 1800s in Missouri as a person opposed to abolition - so essentially a conservative.

In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, it was used to describe overly sensitive people. You know, people who might be insecure enough that they have to defend the size of their hands in a national presidential debate. Or people who wrongly bleat that "snowflake" always refers to liberals. You know the types of people I mean, I'm sure.

The fact of the matter is that "snowflake" has a storied history in a wide variety of contexts and has never been exclusively used to mean "liberal," despite what some people might think.

being a trump excuse maker is an accurate measurement of one's morality and character

in other words, they have no morals or character, just like the man they worship

feel free to direct me to anything that proves otherwise

I keep hearing "deep state" here and "deep state" there and "deep states" popping up everywhere.

How many "deep states" are there supposed to be anyway?

#18 | Posted by Twinpac at 2018-09-08 06:08 AM | Reply

As many deep States as required to keep Trump out of jail.
