sinister confusion

The 'alternative facts' from the idiot trump's team are starting. Lies are not lies, not falsehoods, not deceptions - no they are alternative facts. And that is the softening up process so that any of the idiot trump's idiot supporters will do any idiot thing - not yet now, but a wee bit later on - based on alternative facts.

If there is one video clip that describes the new reality for the political media - and for the truth - during the President Trump era, it is the one above.It's a discussion about White House press secretary Sean Spicer, on his first full day in that job, having taken to the podium and made easily disproved claims about the size of President Trump's inauguration crowd."Why put him out there for the very first time, in front of that podium, to utter a provable falsehood? Chuck Todd asked Kellyanne Conway, a senior aide to the president. "It's a small thing, but the first time he confronts the public, it's a falsehood?After some tense back and forth, Conway offered this:"Don't be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck. You're saying it's a falsehood, and they're giving - our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that. But the point really is -"
Good write up by Anthony Robins on The Standard about the size of the marches and the deliberate and sinister messing with the facts bullshit from trump and his minions.
