Trump says he is at war with the media, apparently upset with reports of low turnout for inauguration. “As you know, I have a running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human beings on Earth.”   http://money.cnn.com/2017/01/21/media/donald-trump-war-with-the-media/

Millions of women march around the country. “Hundreds of thousands of women… filled long stretches of downtown Washington around the White House and National Mall. Hundreds of thousands more women thronged New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston to rebuke Trump on his first full day in office.”   https://www.yahoo.com/news/challenge-trump-women-protesters-swarm-streets-across-u-002600625.html

More people reportedly showed up for Women’s March than inauguration. “The city’s public transit service, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, recorded about 275,000 trips as of 11 a.m. Saturday, more than the 193,000 it recorded by 11 a.m. Friday ahead of Trump’s inauguration speech and parade.”   http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2017/01/21/500000-expected-attend-womens-march-washington-metro-crowded/96880138/

Trump’s press secretary apparently caught lying at first press conference. “Photographs of the National Mall in Washington DC and public transport figures for the city cast serious doubt on Sean Spicer’s angry insistence that Donald Trump drew “the largest audience ever to witness and inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe”.”   https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jan/22/trump-inauguration-crowd-sean-spicers-claims-versus-the-evidence
