BBC Three has had a delightful morning live-tweeting the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. But as huge crowds gathered along the route to Windsor Castle to celebrate the royal nupitals, the online channel took a moment to look back across the Atlantic and troll Donald Trump. 

“Just saying,” the BBC Three account tweeted, along with side-by-side pictures of the Windsor Castle audience and the famously paltry 2017 inauguration crowd on the National Mall in Washington, DC.

Shoutout to Sean Spicer, who, seventeen months ago, declared Trump’s crowd “the largest audience to witness an inauguration, period.” Nope


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
