Dallas Stars troll Trump inauguration attendance claims made by Sean Spicer

On Saturday, new White House
Press Secretary Sean Spicer lectured¬†media outlets at a press briefing and made dubious claims about the attendance for Donald Trump’s inauguration, saying it was “the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period.”

As will happen, the comments quickly became the subject of jokes and memes across social media circles. Not to be left out, even the NHL’s Dallas Stars got involved.

Late in the Stars’ 4-3 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals, Dallas posted the night’s attendance figure on the jumbotron, along with a picture of the crowd. They used the moment to poke some fun at Spicer and the Trump inauguration estimates.
