Oregon congressman calls Donald Trump 'Liar in Chief' on Twitter

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) is known more for his bow tie than for a fiery Twitter presence. But on Monday, the Portland representative took to Twitter to share his thoughts about President Donald Trump's first few days in office.

"In first 24 hrs @POTUS makes clear ego, not #facts or #honesty, will be guiding principle for him & his administration," wrote Blumenauer, using the hashtag "LiarInChief."

Blumenauer's 35 tweets were a response to the false claims by Trump and his press secretary, Sean Spicer, about the size of the crowds that attended Trump's inauguration. Trump estimated that there were 1 or 1.5 million people in the crowd, while Spicer said the crowd was "the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration."

Photographs of the event and numbers from the local agencies showed neither of these things were true.
