(NYDAILYNEWS) Those big crowds are still bothering President Trump.
The new President, on his second day in office, criticized the participants in Saturday’s Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and talked up his own TV ratings from the inauguration.
“Watched protests yesterday but was under the impression that we just had an election!” Trump tweeted Sunday.
“Why didn’t these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly.”
In another tweet, Trump boasted about the television draw for his inauguration on Friday.
“Wow, television ratings just out: 31 million people watched the Inauguration, 11 million more than the very good ratings from 4 years ago!” he wrote.
Trump drew the third-biggest Nielsen ratings for an inauguration, after the first swearing-ins for President Ronald Reagan (about 42 million, in 1981) and President Barack Obama (about 38 million, in 2009).
Second-term inaugurations usually see a dropoff in viewers; Obama’s next oath of office, for example, had about 21 million viewers.
The mass of marchers on Saturday vastly outnumbered the crowds from Trump taking the oath of office. An estimated half a million people attended the Washington rally, and other sites such as New York City drew massive crowds in support for women’s rights.
