NHL’s Dallas Stars burn Donald Trump on attendance figures


It’s not often you see professional sports teams get political and try to blast the newly inaugurated U.S. president. But these aren’t necessarily normal times—especially with Donald Trump administration’s propensity to attack journalists for reporting accurate information—and the NHL’s Dallas Stars decided to have a little fun at the president’s expense on Saturday night.

You know how Trump claimed that 1.5 million people attended his inauguration, even though photos clearly showed it was much less than that? Apparently all the people who didn’t attend the inauguration were actually in Dallas watching the Stars lose 4-3 to the Washington Capitals.

For a team that spends so much of its time on the ice, that was a pretty nice burn.
