I’m not sure where to even start with this. How Kellyanne Conway can make a ridiculous statement like “alternative facts” and keep a straight face while doing it is beyond me?
Are You Kidding Me?
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, you’ve probably heard about this absurd interview between Chuck Todd and Kellyanne Conway.
On the off chance that you haven’t seen or heard about this, it essentially revolves around President Trumps inauguration “crowd size”. That’s right…who had the bigger crowd during their inauguration, Trump or Obama. Small hands, small crowd.
This was the very first topic that the White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, wanted to address. The goal was to debunk claims of lower than expected turnout as false and in fact, as Spicer claimed, Trump had the “largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period”.
When Chuck Todd questioned her why this would be what Spicer would want to tackle first and also make false claims in the process, lead to a heated debate between the two. During this verbal back and forth, Kellyanne referred to Spicer’s blatant lies (and come on, they were) as “alternative facts”.
I’ve included the entire interview for you, so you can experience it for yourself. Be sure to really listen to Kellyanne as she deflects the real questions and turns to media bashing in an effort to flip things on Todd. Granted the media did do some sensational reporting that was unfavorable to Trump during the election, but she is clearly spinning things here to gain sympathy and prove that the media is not fair.
Who Gives a Shit!?
If this is what the White House is concerned with on day one, then I can only imagine what will the next four years be like. What’s worse is the way in which Spicer handled it. I mean the man came out guns blazing. Going on about all sorts of statistics and counts that, at this point, are proven to not be the least bit true. But it’s okay because those are “alternative facts”.
In all seriousness though, I’ll leave you with this simple thought…if this administration is going to lie about a topic that, at the end of the day, literally means nothing…what will we get when something occurs that truly matters to the American people?
I’d love to know your thoughts on this one.
Oh, and by the way, did I mention that I’m 6’2″ and 225 lbs. of solid muscle who women can’t get enough of? #alternativefacts
