"A top adviser to President Donald Trump on Sunday said White House press secretary Sean Spicer provided 'alternative facts' to reporters during his first briefing. 'You’re saying it's a falsehood. And they're giving, Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that,' [Kellyanne] Conway said on NBC’s 'Meet the Press.' Host Chuck Todd fired back at Conway over her comments. 'Look, alternative facts are not facts,' said Chuck Todd. 'They're falsehoods.' Spicer on Saturday conducted his first press briefing with reporters, railing against the media for its coverage of the crowd size at Trump's inauguration ceremony." (01/22/17)

    Well, i expect moral relativism from right-wing jesus freaks like Kellyanne Conway. The problem with the press in this instance is that it would be squeezing this reporting in between its own alternative facts reporting of puppet-master Putin installing the likes of a Kellyanne Conway.

    Kind of of horrifying to think that people with control of mass weapons of destruction can operate in an alternate facts reality w/ impunity if they so chose. Trump, however, is not that thick-skinned. I think he very much cares what the press reports about him.
