For President Donald Trump, SIZE matters most of all, whether you’re talking about the height of a skyscraper, the square footage of a penthouse apartment, or the number of people in a crowd for a midterm election rally.
On Friday, former President Barack Obama headlined a rally in Miami for Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL). Estimates placed the crowd size at 4,000 people.
Two days after people walked out on Trump while he was still talking, Obama came to Florida and drew a crowd of 4,000 who waited for hours to hear him speak. https://t.co/DCfFRplUsu pic.twitter.com/W6nTl0CNW5

A few hours later, Trump held a campaign rally in West Virginia. Only about a thousand Trump fans were present, so the eternally insecure Trump pitched a fit, telling the audience at his event:
“[Obama] had a very small crowd, I have to be honest… I had to listen, I was in the plane, I had nothing else to do. And I heard him talk about telling the truth… and yet, 28 times he said you can keep your doctor, if you like your doctor, you can keep your plan, if you like your plan. They were all lies…”
Donald Trump accusing another person of lying is not only the ultimate in irony and hypocrisy, it only serves to remind us that the current president doesn’t have a shred of truth in him. As of October 31, according to the Washington Post, Trump had made 6,420 false or misleading claims.
After his rally in West Virginia, Trump sent out this tweet:

In response, social media users shredded the president:
I see you had a much smaller crowd then president Obama

So, how are all those coal mining jobs Trump promised to get back for you #WestVirginia? I’ve been waiting every day on bated breath for a Clean Coal Salesman 2 stop by & sell me, my very own coal stove for the house, since “Clean Coal” is making SUCH A BIG COME BACK! 😊😉👍

Didn’t President Obama have more people at his rally?

Any second now, Trump will probably have Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announce that the crowd West Virginia was the largest for a political rally in the history of the United States. That’s what insecure narcissists usually do.
