Obama, Trump and Papandreou... Greeks Invented Crowd Size Disputes Too!

Obama, Trump and Papandreou, Andreas Papandreou 
 Greeks Invented Crowd Size Disputes too - they started fighting about them in the 80's!

Watching the crowd-size dispute in the USA between the Obama inauguration 
and the one of Donald Trump, just couldn't resist! 

In Greece we don't 'do' Inaugurations but we have had very heated debates into the crowd sizes in pre-election gatherings, especially in the 1980's, when our two political dinosaurs Andreas Papandreou and Konstantinos Mitsotakis were involved! 

It was all a question of camera angles and ERT's Tasos Birsim was an acknowledged whizz!
PASOK and Nea Dimokratia would fight over who could draw the biggest crowds to Syntagma, along the Thessaloniki foreshore and anywhere else where people could gather...
At Global Greek World, We ♥ Greece...and it shows!
