Remember the 45th president of the United States Donald Trump's inauguration? Let's just say it was a pretty empty, barren affair in Washington DC.

Despite Sean Spicer's angry claims that President Trump drew "the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe", all the evidence points to the contrary.

Crowd estimates can be fraught with difficulty, and there is no official figure for the turn out. However, images of the National Mall on inauguration day contradicted Spicer's claims, especially when compared with images of Barack Obama's inauguration, and the turn out for the Women's March.

A time-lapse video of the inauguration from PBS also shows that it was never actually full.

Now, people are comparing the empty stalls of Trump's inauguration with photos of yesterday's Brighton Pride, and the results are amazing.
