A bit of context: Facebook’s viewership totals are notoriously inflated. If you scroll through one of Trump’s Facebook pages, a video of his address will begin to play automatically. Unless you stop the seven-minute clip within three seconds, you will count as a viewer. By way of comparison, YouTube counts viewers who watch for at least 30 seconds.

On Trump’s two Facebook accounts, comments on the address totaled about 74,000 and likes totaled roughly 194,000 when Spicer addressed the media. That leaves 832,000 “other interactions.” Whatever that means.
