Trump inaugural did beat out Obama’s in attendance in one area

As long as attendance at presidential inaugurals has become the latest lightening rod in our political world, it is interesting to note that Trump’s inauguration did beat out both of President Obama’s inaugurals in one area: hotels booked.  According to The Daily Caller, STR, an analytics company, reported that in hotels booked, Trump’s inaugural outpaced both of the previous presidential inaugurals.  Critics of Trump are saying the bookings were helped by the women’s march in D.C. the day after the inaugural.

Those who viewed the inauguration on all media may also have set a record, according the report.
