Many Trump Voters Are Willing To Say That Less Is More

sigh
  On the bright side, the pix are a teensy tiny bit unclear (the trees could possibly be mistaken for part of the crowd in the 2016 pic) and there's no doubt that way fewer people believe it than said it.
   But there's no way around the fact that this is depressing as hell.

The photos are somewhat misleading. They are taken 45 minutes prior to the inauguration, at 11:45. Trump's audience at noon did extend as far back as the temporary building in the foreground of his photo (but not in the photo of Obama's inauguration.). The difference is that people came very early to Obama's inauguration to get seats at all, because by noon, the Mall was packed all the way back to the Washington Monument.
There are pictures of this available on the web. I assume Trump had the temporary building there to make it appear that the crowd didn't just fade off to nothing in the background. You can see the noon crowd here.
