In its own way, the BBC is pointing out that Trump and his team are all "pants on fire" liars. Team Trump is lying about something that barely matters (crowd size at inauguration), except for Trump's massive vanity. And their lying is proven by photographic evidence.

The BBC points out "Press secretary Sean Spicer outlined figures amounting to 720,000 people in the Mall, despite having asserted seconds before that 'no one had numbers' for the inauguration."

Spicer also lied that the number of people taking Washington's subway system on the day had been higher than during Mr Obama's second inauguration in 2013.
In reality, there were 782,000 tickets that year, but 571,000 this year, the Washington-area transit authority says.

The New York Times, singled out by Mr Spicer, denounced Spicer's "false claims" and described his statements as a "striking display of invective and grievance at the dawn of a presidency". The NYT is saying that the President's press secretary is a lying, whiney, crybaby.
CNN said it did not even broadcast the spokesman's statement live. It said the press secretary had attacked the media "for accurately reporting" and went on to debunk the claims.
ABC News also goes into detail to refute the claims.

Translation of the BBC story: "you Trumpkin idiots have put a delusional liar into the greatest office in the world."
Photo evidence appears to undermine the president's claims of high attendance at the inauguration.

I am glad others are taking note of his lies. He needs to be publicly outed every time he tells one.... His ego and concern for 'being adored' are still his weakness.. Even having gained the office, he still feels the need to lie and it shows that nothing is going to be "enough"..
It would likely destroy him if the media was smart enough to boycott him...Dangerous, maybe, but it would send him down the path to self
destruction sooner.. His temper tantrums would be epic--he would lose it and make even more mistakes....

As Winston Churchill once noted, "a cat looks down on you. A dog looks up to you, but a giraffe - a giraffe looks down on you, too."

ACLU is pressing Trump about his unresolved conflicts of interest. Please sign their petition demanding that the documents be released.
The public has a right to know about Trump’s actual or potential conflicts – and we need your help to make sure we get the full story. Take action now.

Signed and will share.. We need to keep up pressuring this poor excuse for a quality person.. We know how badly he reacts to criticism--and we can't give in to his bullying..

Not sure why this is even a thing. Money is too powerful.

Well, I guess it is true. Anyone can become president.
Anyone who is elderly, white, and has a $200M inheritance from his dad's crooked real estate empire, that is.
I'd rather have a competent, thoughtful, fair-minded national leader. Yes, like the last guy. But Orange Foolius is what we have, at least until he mouths off about the CIA once too often.

Now I could agree if he'd said: "I love those with facial expression that induce the urge in others to vomit, are delusional, vengeful, vicious, vain,
and unfit for military duty (?), verbally vile and gross, morally bankrupt, and many other classless traits"
Now the secret is out.... he's revealed why he loves himself.. He embodies all those qualities...
Oh I forgot to mention......He takes such a good picture..

This is actually deep and pretty funny. He or she has rediscovered Rene Magritte's The Treachery of Images - a picture of a mirror is not itself a mirror. Ceci n'est pas une pipe. Celà n'est pas un miroir.
I keep meaning to pop into the County Museum next time I'm in L.A. and review this picture first hand. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Treachery_of_Images

The sneak thief who stole the $1M bucket of gold flakes in NYC, has been arrested in Ecuador. He'll be extradited, and, on conviction, will get a decade or two in the slammer - the 1% hate people who steal from them.
The Ecuadorian is suspecting of running off with gold flakes valued at about $1.6m (£1.2m).

This is a trailer for an upcoming movie, but that's not my question - where is this street that overlooks the entire LA basin!? It is seen in many movies. Does it exist?

Mainstream political cartoons can be quite robust in Britain. This one was published in the quality daily paper, The Guardian.
The orange gibbon is President Baby Hands (nice to see the artist nailed that detail). The creepy clown living in Baby Hand's ass is the Prime Minister of Britain, Theresa May. (Also has a strong resemblance to Maggie Thatcher - Steve Bell drew many cartoons of Thatcher, back when Thatcher instigated the Falklands war, 35 years ago).

A few months before the Falklands blew up, Thatcher had signaled to the Argies that Britain was no longer prepared to defend the outpost, by withdrawing the sole navy vessel in the area (a minesweeper, if I remember correctly). When the Argies invaded, it was obvious the local people were wholly against them. The dispute should have been handled peacefully through the UN. But both inept administrations thought that a little war would make them more popular at home. It was horrible.

It would be great if there were a way to score Goo search results. Because this one is an 11/10.
I did this search, not believing that my poor description would ... Wait a minute! Wait a minute! Star trek queries get accelerated to Hut 8, where accredited nerds deal with them live and in person. Bah!
