Alleged president Donald Trump and his team’s war on the truth continued today with Kellyanne Conway on Meet the Press. Conway got into a heated exchange with host Chuck Todd over White House press secretary Sean Spicer inflating the inauguration crowd size. The fact is that the March on Washington garnered double the amount of protesters than supporters of Trump at the inauguration. Conway said a couple of times to Todd after he called out the blatant lies by Spicer that she may have to ‘rethink their relationship.’ In other words, always agree or she won’t be on his show. Conway has had enough airtime anyway so we think that’s a very good idea. By the way, it wasn’t just Spicer. Donald Trump had a hissy fit at CIA headquarters. First, he bragged about himself. Then he made the jaw-dropping declaration that between one and one and a half million people attended his inauguration.
On Trump’s first day on the job, he trotted his White House press secretary out to say, “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period.”
Conway couldn’t give a straight answer after Todd repeatedly asked her why Spicer was sent out to make a “provable falsehood” like that. Conway said this is an example of “the unfair and incomplete treatment” that Trump gets in the media.
That’s when Conway said she may have to “rethink our relationship here” if the media is going to talk about the press secretary like that.
Todd told her Spicer’s claim “undermines the credibility of the entire White House press office.”
Conway said that Todd was being “dramatic” and said that Spicer was giving “alternative facts.”
“Alternative facts are not facts, they’re falsehoods!” Todd shot back.
At one point Todd laughed and she seemed upset by that. Todd said he was “just befuddled,” but Conway again said the press was being unfair.
The internet pounced and #AltternativeFacts and #SpicerFacts started trending on Twitter.
“The Party told you to reject all evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.” (Orwell)#AlternativeFacts
