Donald Trump cannot speak without saying that everything he’s done is “the biggest ever,” “the greatest in history,” or “the best of any president ever.” From his self-proclaimed but dubious high IQ to his health, Trump is truly a legend in his own mind but in pretty much no one else’s.
Trump, as well as his former press secretary, Sean Spicer, will never live down the spectacle they made when trying to convince Americans not to trust their own eyes when gauging the size of Trump’s inauguration attendance. Spicer even used giant blown-up photos of Trump’s poorly attended inauguration to demonstrate that it was the “largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period.” He also lied to the public by saying that the white covering over the grass at the mall made the crowd look smaller than previous photos of inauguration crowds and that it was the first time this white covering was used. It wasn’t.
On Saturday, the world watched as the youngest son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana married Meghan Markle. Cheers and well-wishers lined the streets leading to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle and guests inside the ceremony included such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney. British news outlet BBC tweeted a photo of the crowd waiting outside in comparison with Trump’s inauguration to remind the president just how unpopular he really is.

Trump is sure to be outraged by the photos, but even the world-famous British author of the Harry Potter series joined in on the fun.

Trumpsters may believe the president’s endless rantings about his own greatness, as well as his humiliating demands that his spokespeople appear at press conferences to tell obvious and blatant lies, but the world is watching and taking note of the ridiculous claims.
Twitter users had a field day laughing over the comparison and showing celebrities whose crowds were larger than Trump’s inauguration could draw, and it’s a very long list. See some of their responses below:
