The President got Berned.
A simple tweet from Sen. Bernie Sanders aimed at President Trump has quickly gained thousands of retweets and sparked the Twitter hashtag “#FeelTheBern.
Following widespread anti-Trump rallies across the U.S., the commander-in-chief took to Twitter early Saturday morning, writing that if his supporters gathered together for a rally it would be the biggest one yet.
“Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally,” Trump wrote. “It would be the biggest of them all.”
However, photos from Trump’s inauguration showed significantly fewer people in attendance than former President Obama’s in 2009.
Just in case Trump somehow forgot about those photos, Sanders reminded him by tweeting the side-by-side shots of Trump and Obama’s crowds.
“@realDonaldTrump They did. It wasn’t,” the former 2016 Democratic presidential candidate tweeted.
Trump has yet to respond to Sanders’ post, but his administration has previously denied that more people came out for Obama’s inauguration.
“This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period — both in person and around the globe,” press secretary Sean Spicer said during a January White House news briefing.
“These attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong,” he added.
