Crowd Scientists Say Womens March in Washington Had 3 Times as Many People as Trumps Inauguration



The womenís march in Washington was roughly three times the size of the audience at President Trumpís inauguration, crowd counting experts said Saturday.

Marcel Altenburg and Keith Still, crowd scientists at Manchester Metropolitan University in Britain, analyzed photographs and video taken of the National Mall and vicinity and estimated that there were about 160,000 people in those areas in the hour leading up to Mr. Trumpís speech Friday.

They estimated that at least 470,000 people were at the womenís march in Washington in the areas on and near the mall at about 2 p.m. Saturday.

The two images below show the crowds when they were at their peak density at the two events.

2. They will own the historians soon and the alternative facts will say something

very different.

A certain group of 1940 Germans would be proud.
