#alternativefacts
Are you fucking kidding me? Facepalm

"The tensions flared anew on Sunday when Kellyanne Conway, one of Mr. Trump’s top advisers, said in a television interview that Mr. Spicer had merely presented “alternative facts” about the inauguration, prompting an astonished response from her questioner, Chuck Todd of NBC.

“Wait a minute — ‘alternative facts’?” Mr. Todd asked Ms. Conway on “Meet the Press.” “Look, alternative facts are not facts. They’re falsehoods.”

When Mr. Todd pressed her about why the administration had put Mr. Spicer behind the lectern for the first time to “utter a provable falsehood,” Ms. Conway responded with a sharp threat. “If we’re going to keep referring to our press secretary in those types of terms, I think that we’re going to have to rethink our relationship here,” she said.”

Kudos to Mr. Todd, fuck Conway and Spicer.

RE: #alternativefacts
I reject your reality and substitute my own.

Do most Trump supporters even give a fuck that his administration is so blatantly lying to their faces?

....Do they even notice? Huh

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

But he says what he thinks, and "tells it like it is". At least that's what was a big selling point among some of his voters.
Facepalm

"Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour."
Huh, that's funny, I guess Kellyanne must live a couple of blocks away from the White House or something, I wasn't aware of this.

However, it does say "against thy neighbor." Doesn't say anything about "for thy neighbor." Aaaah, I see, she found a loophole. Clever lady. Cool

RE: #alternativefacts
LOL, I just watched this. Kelly Ann, are those "alternative facts" more truthy?
Colbert nailed it so long ago. Hat's off to that guy.

RE: #alternativefacts
While every government engages in a certain degree of good-fact and double-think it is particularly hypocritical when the deride the "preferred narrative" out of one side of their mouth while spewing non-fact from the other. When your rulers start believing their own lies you have the makings of a very nasty problem.

Seeing what they want to see and not tolerating opposition reminds me of the story The Emperor’s New Clothes.
