Just two days after being sworn in, a peevish President Donald Trump took to Twitter and fumed because the Women’s March on Washington, D.C. drew a much larger turnout than his inauguration.

“Watched protests yesterday,” President Donald Trump fumed on Twitter early Sunday morning after seeing the huge turnout for the Women’s March on Washington. He just can’t understand why. “But [I] was under the impression that we just had an election!” Mein Trumpf declared. “Why didn’t these people vote?”

Um…Actually, “these people” did vote, as at least one astute Twitizen pointed out.

Nearly 3 million more Americans voted for Hillary Clinton than for Donald Trump. Unfortunately, the majority of our votes simply don’t count thanks to an arcane Electoral College system designed to give states run by slave owners more influence.

It was bad enough when George W. Bush “won” the election in 2000 despite losing the popular vote by 500,000.

Now, once again, a Republican president’s swaggering around signing executive orders and acting as though he’s won a popular mandate.

And once again, Republicans are hellbent on making radical changes without any sort of popular mandate for their toxic agenda.

The Washington Post reports Saturday’s Women’s March drew nearly 500,000 to the Capitol alone and over one million total in cities across the U.S. The major news outlets dare not give out the dismal attendance numbers for Donald Trump’s inauguration. But The New York Times does show side-by-side photos of the crowds gathered on the National Mall for President Barack Obama’s inauguration in 2009 and Mein Trumpf’s in 2017.

The analysis by Keith Still, a professor at Manchester Metropolitan University in England, estimates that the crowd on the National Mall on Friday was about one-third the size of Mr. Obama’s.

The New York Times still won’t give out a final number because “footage of a larger area was not yet available.”

The number of people on the National Mall is typically a fraction of the total crowd that gathers for a presidential inauguration. In 2009, for example, about 460,000 of the estimated 1.8 million people who attended President Obama’s inauguration were on the National Mall.

Still, the side-by-side photos make Donald Trump’s inaugural turnout look less than enthusiastic.

Meanwhile, US Weekly also pored over the data from Keith Still and his fellow crowd scientist Marcel Altenburg, both from Manchester Metropolitan University in the U.K. Despite White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s frantic attempts to spin crowd sizes on the Sunday talk show circuit, numbers don’t lie.

Based on images, Altenburg and Still estimated that there were approximately 160,000 people in attendance at Trump’s inauguration and at least 470,000 people who marched on Saturday.

That’s right. The crowd experts say around 160,000 came to President Donald Trump’s inauguration, while “at least” 470,000 protesters converged upon Washington, D.C. on Saturday for the Women’s March.

This is what losing the popular vote looks like, Mein Trumpf.

WATCH:  The Women’s March on Washington drew three times bigger crowds than Donald Trump’s inauguration.

As Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) is heard saying during the Women’s March:

“Wherever he is, he’s looking at this, he’s witnessing this, and he’s got to know: Something has been said here today about him, that he had better know, that he can’t get away with doing some of the things that he says he’s going to do.”
