National Park Service Teases Donald Trump Over Small Inauguration Crowds


One theme that has been a constant today revolving around today’s inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States has been the relatively thin crowds at the ceremony and parade compared to what we saw for Barack Obama.

And it wasn’t just media outlets and reporters highlighting this fact. The National Park Service also got in on the action.

At one point this afternoon, whoever runs the NPS’s official Twitter account decided to retweet the following observation by the New York Times’ Binyamin Applebaum.

Applebaum was able to screengrab his tweet on the service’s Twitter timeline and tweeted it back out, stating that it was pretty apparent the the Trump Administration hadn’t taken over there yet.

Alas, it appears that someone decided to address this situation and undid the retweet, with it no longer appearing on the account’s timeline.

This wasn’t the only critical tweet of Trump the account retweeted this afternoon. Following the realization that the official White House website scrubbed all mentions of climate change on the site, the NPS retweeted this one as well (which it later undid).
