Trump Press Secretary doesn't lie, he gives "Alternative Facts"

Holy crap...you cannot make this stuff up!

Kellyanne Conway: WH Spokesman Gave 'Alternative Facts' on Inauguration Crowd - NBC News

Spicer LIES....not obfuscates, not deflects, not misremembers...he LIED

And Kellyanne Conway comes out and calls it "offering alternative facts"

Yo, Kellyanne, there is no such thing as "alternative facts"! Facts are facts...if you say something contrary to the facts that is a lie.

Jesus Christ people, one of the appeals of Trump was that he wasn't a regular politician.

With a statement like this I agree, he isn't a regular politician, he's a hyped up, monster politician on steroids.

Alternative Facts.....WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT!!!

I saw the scary 1984 parallel all through the campaign - now it's merely coming to fruition - now the white house says it maybe have to rethink its relationship with the media.

In other words - if the media won't lie for them, they'll just shut it out and create their own media.
Thanks from waitingtables

Would that be the media that has lost all credibility? Their sycophantic love affair with Obimbo, and the resulting ratings should be telling the Democrats it was a major reason for Trump's win.

No, Trump's emulation of the Goebbels tactic has come into sharp focus. To wit, we are watching this play out from the early hours of the Trump regime.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Alternative facts, indeed.
Thanks from waitingtables and Camelot

Maybe it's just an alternative reality - you know, like the "Man in the High Castle."

Fact...the MLK sculpture...was...not....removed ...from the Oval Office. Media said it was...who "lied"? A picture was shown on TV of a very empty street...but ...fact...that was not the picture from the capital to Washington memorial, during the inauguration. Who lied? Fact...this ceremony was the 2nd largest in attendance for some 38 years. Who reported that?

Good God, I just watched Kellyanne with her tanning booth tan, give an evil little smile when she was confronted with her "alternative facts" depiction of an outright lie.

This presidency isn't going to be pretty.

Oh my, and I left out Kellyanne's comment When pressed
"Chuck if we're going to keep referring to our press secretary in those types of terms, I think we're going to have to rethink our relationship here.
Chuck had the audacity to challenge Spicer's alternative facts. Bad boy Chuck.

Spicer lied, what Kellyanne calls "alternative facts," just like you're lying right here. Second largest? I don't think so.
