""Nearly a dozen" White House staffers have told Washington Post reporters that Trump was "demoralized" by press reports that showed a poor turnout for his inauguration and a much larger turnout for the Women’s March the next day, and overruled his advisors and aides’ advice to let it go — instead, he ordered press secretary Sean Spicer to tell a series of easily falsifiable lies to the media that misrepresented the turnout for the inauguration.

Spicer’s poor performance at that press-conference — shouting words from a prepared, printed statement while wearing an "ill-fitting suit" and looking uncomfortable — further enraged Trump, and has highlighted the rift between Trump’s family (notably, his son-in-law Jared Kushner), the staff that came with Trump from his campaign, and new hires like Spicer, with backstabbing and vicious whispers being the order of the first days of the Trump White House.
