Trump Displays Photo of Inauguration Crowd That Features Wrong Date
Since Inauguration Day, we’ve been inundated with images of crowds, whether it be of the swearing in ceremony for Donald Trump on Friday, the inaugural parade that followed or of previous inaugurations as a point of comparison to Friday’s crowd. Inauguration crowd pictures made their way to the National Park Service Twitter account and a Senate confirmation hearing, among other places.
Considering he sent his press secretary out over the weekend to display pictures that showed a large audience at his ceremony, it was only natural that Trump took to his Twitter account to post one of his own. And earlier today, he did, sharing a panoramic image of the inauguration crowd.
A photo delivered yesterday that will be displayed in the upper/lower press hall. Thank you Abbas! pic.twitter.com/Uzp0ivvRp0

However, it appears there is one little mistake on the photo that was quickly noticed.

Yes, the photographer, Abbas Shirmohammadi, placed an erroneous date on the photograph. Instead of it showing January 20th, it instead reads January 21st, the day after the inauguration. (The image is of the inauguration and not of the Women’s March, which occurred on the 21st.)
According to The Hill, the photograph is now hanging in the press hallway that connects the White House communication staff’s workspace.
