Just off the top of your head, what would you think the term "alternative facts" means? If you said, "lies" or "things that are not facts," you are correct!
Yesterday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer gave a press conference in which he yelled that it was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, a lie. Since then, Twitter has been destroying him over these blatant false claims. Today, Kellyanne Conway is claiming that was Spicer did was not lie, NBC reports. In fact, he presented what Conway is calling "alternative facts." I've never heard of this term before, but maybe that's just a hip new slang word all the fascists are using?
