"Alternative facts"

This one is a serious hoot.


What 'alternative universe' are these people in?

"You're saying it's a falsehood. And they're giving -- Sean Spicer, our press secretary -- gave alternative facts," she said.

Todd responded: "Alternative facts aren't facts, they are falsehoods."

Conway then tried to pivot to policy points. But later in the interview, Todd pressed Conway again on why the White House sent Spicer out to make false claims about crowd size, asking: "What was the motive to have this ridiculous litigation of crowd size?"

"Your job is not to call things ridiculous that are said by our press secretary and our president. That's not your job," Conway said.

Trump and his henchmen don't 'lie.' They present 'alternative facts.'

Is that like an 'alternate universe?'

And just what is the job of the press? To serve as Trump's Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda?

"Just step right into the showers, nothing to worry about here ...".

Well ... wait. Let's play it according to Trump's Bestest Friend Forever ... "Just hop right onto the train, tovarisch, next stop will be a fine little dacha in the gulag!"

How's that 'alternative facts' thing going to work in the criminal justice system? "Well, you see, your Honor, my testimony just followed the 'alternative fact pattern. I'm sure that when the plungers ram home the lethal solution the defendant will understand ... it really helps with clearing cases."

"Alternative facts." Sounds like the Clinton Crime syndicate explaining away the mail server and Benghazi and all the rest.

It's called 'dezinformatsiya' in the real world. Putin is a master at it. Clearly, Trump and his merry band of liars are amateurs. Not to worry, however. I am sure Bad Vlad will tutor Our Donald in the finer points.

If these people will go to these lengths to justify their delusions over an inconsequential thing like this ... what's going to happen when the stakes are serious?
