- The host of Reliable Sources criticized the new White House press secretary after he blasted the media in his first press briefing
- Stelter: Spicer said five things that were not true in the span of five minutes
- Spicer claimed media reports of Trump inaugural attendance were skewed
On Saturday, just one day after Donald Trump was inaugurated, Spicer attacked the gathered media in his first White House press briefing
, telling them that they had misreported the number of people who had attended the inauguration.
Though aerial photos showed
that Barack Obama's first inauguration had attracted a bigger crowd, Spicer was furious, saying that the pictures had been "intentionally framed" to make Trump's crowd look smaller.
"This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period," Spicer insisted.
"That's not true," he said.
"Spicer said five things that were not true in the span of five minutes," he added.
"For months now," Stelter said, "We've been wondering what covering a Trump White House might be like. I think (now) we're wondering something else. Is this what every day is going to be like?"
