Sean Spicer’s January 21st press briefing ignored worldwide protests, and instead focussed on Trump’s inauguration crowd size. He angrily spat numbers and details that were easily verifiable – and were down-right false. What Sean Spicer told the White House press core was not true. From magnetometers to DC metro numbers – it was not true.
January 22nd on Meet The Press, Chuck Todd asked Kellyanne Conway about these blatant falsehoods. Her response:
You’re saying it’s a falsehood and Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that.
Alternative facts – and said with a straight face, no less. Welcome to Trump’s America.
Kellyanne Conway is a smart person; deep down she must know that the spin she offers is outrageous. I don’t know to whom Kellyanne Conway sold her soul, but one hopes she got top dollar.
