Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s advisor, has told some whoppers over the past few months, but what she said today may take the prize. This woman seriously got on national television and said the lies told by Sean Spicer, Trump’s press secretary, are just “alternative facts.”
Appearing on Meet The Press this Sunday morning, host Chuck Todd asked Conway why Trump would send Spicer out for the administration’s very first press conference and have him spout off a bunch of lies that can be so easily debunked. Instead of answering his question she stomped her feet and whined that the media is just being mean, tossing in the threat that if everybody keeps picking on Trump he’s just gonna have to cut them off.
But Todd had no intention of letting Conway off the hook. Todd continued to press, asking her the same question she had been avoiding.
You did not answer the question of why the president asked the White House press secretary to come out in front of the podium for the first time and utter a falsehood. Why did he do that? It undermines the credibility of the entire White House press office.
The idiocy of the answer Conway gave will have your jaw on the floor. When she was finally backed into a corner and had no choice but to explain Spicer’s steaming pile of bullshi*t, she gave the stupidest answer ever.
No it doesn’t. Don’t be so overly dramatic about it Chuck. You’re saying it’s a falsehood and they’re giving Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that.
Todd couldn’t help but laugh and point out that “alternative facts are not facts, they’re falsehoods.”
