On Thursday afternoon, Donald Trump held a press conference to announce his new Secretary of Labor pick. As it quickly turned into a rambling mess, Donald Trump took questions from the assembled reporters.

At one point, NBC's Peter Alexander took issue with a statement Trump had made earlier in the press conference. Donald Trump, according to Donald Trump, had won "the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan."

Since we all have Google, we know that Reagan won 489 Electoral College votes in 1980. Because we're all conscious people who are alive, we know that several men, including George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama, have been president "since Ronald Reagan."

And because this is relevant, we can easily learn that all three of the aforementioned presidents won more than Trump's 304 electoral votes in various presidential elections since 1980.

So here's Peter Alexander giving Trump the facts, and asking him why we should trust his constant claims of "fake news" about the "failing" New York Times when he himself just spewed brazen alternative facts at a press conference.

"So why should Americans trust you when you accuse the information they've received as being fake?"

Notice Donald Trump nodding along at the beginning of Peter Alexander's question. Then listen to Donald Trump saying, "I was given that information. I don't know. I was just given it. We had a very, very big margin."

He continued, "It was a substantial victory. You do agree with that?"

"You're the president," responded Alexander. So, no.
