False. the picture of trumps was authenticated as taken at the same time. There was simply no comparison of numbers, for a variety of reasons. The reason they finally quietly let it drop was even their alternative facts could do nothing to make it true. There was a LOT of empty space at trumps inauguration due to far lower numbers than Obama's.

When do the staff who failed to create an adequate backup strategy, or the brass who shut down the staff who wanted to do that, be similarly fired for gross incompetence?

this hits home. I had a remote site with critical data that had no backups. for 3 years I kept telling the CFO we need this budgeted to add backups. Always put off "till next quarter". Not even a small budget for a CD-R and manual backups. nada.

Then it happened. Failed system, data lost. No way to recover. Somehow, all my fault. I was fired for it. Presenting my emails and disaster recovery plan requests fell on deaf ears. I was IT, it was my responsibility to prevent.

We need to start having MASSIVE fines and petty jail time for this. training, phising warnings, attachment warnings- these things happen daily. Someone that still does this needs to be made to suffer. Then, maybe, people will take the warnings seriously.
  Is there a malicious negligence or depraved negligence charge we can level at them?
