To former reality show star Donald Trump, size matters. The British Broadcasting Corporation trolled the so-called president on Twitter by showing side-by-side photos of Trump’s inauguration crowd and massive crowd that gathered outside of Windsor Castle for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. Last year, Trump insisted that his inaugural crowd was the biggest in history, with 1.5 million people in attendance, despite clear photographic evidence that it wasn’t. It was an embarrassing moment, revealing how deeply insecure Donald Trump is and the BBC hasn’t forgotten about that.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said at the time that the crowd size at Trump’s inauguration was the largest there had ever been but clearly, former President Barack Obama’s crowd was bigger.

The royal wedding was everything that Trump is not. It was an emotional celebration of love and inclusion. Bishop Michael Bruce Curry delivered an impassioned and moving address to the couple and guests at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle and quoted Martin Luther King Jr., saying, “We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will be able to make of this old world a new world. Love is the only way.”
Prince Harry proudly wore his military uniform. There’s a long list of members of the royal family who have served in the military, including Queen Elizabeth. In contrast, the man who wants to be King of the U.S. never served and as an excuse, he said his feet hurt.
As for the crowd size, the Women’s March in Washington was roughly three times the size of the audience at Trump’s inauguration, according to crowd counting experts.
And none of this would have mattered if Trump didn’t make such a big deal about it as he continues to gaslight the public with lies that can be easily debunked.
