The "all time record" Inauguration attendance Trump wants projected at 1/2 of Obama 2009



WASHINGTON In a tweet a week ago, Donald Trump urged his fans to head to Washington to see him get sworn in on Jan. 20.

"Let's set the all time record!" tweeted the president-elect.

But planners who are gearing up for the big day predict that Trump will fall way short of his goal: They're estimating a crowd of roughly 800,000, fewer than half the 1.8 million people who attended President Barack Obama's first inauguration in 2009.

"It's not even close to a record," said Jim Bendat, a California expert on presidential inauguration history, who wrote a book on the subject.

3. The guy lost the election by 3M votes and claims he "won in a landslide" it won't

matter if only 116 people show up; He'll count the entire population of DC as having attended and call it YUGE, the most ever.

6. He won't be there at the inauguration himself.




He won't be able to tear himself away from Twitter long enough.
