President Trump certainly loves trolling the media.

On Tuesday, he announced he would be hanging a panoramic picture of his Inauguration crowd in the West Wing — for all reporters to see.

Mr. Trump tweeted the picture Tuesday, saying, “A photo delivered yesterday that will be displayed in the upper/lower press hall. Thank you Abbas!”

The thank-you was in reference to the photographer, Abbas Shirmohammadi, who signed the photo.

According to Politico, the “upper press and lower press are specific areas in the West Wing where administration press and communications officials work and to which reporters have access.”

No mention was made of the crowd size — which Mr. Trump famously took issue with Saturday, having his press secretary deliver a blistering message to the mainstream media for under-reporting the number of people who watched and attended Mr. Trump’s inauguration.
