The Trump era is only a few days old, but it's already gifted us a new phrase -- "alternative facts." As in, statements that aren't lies - just alternatives to the truth.
It started with Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who proclaimed that President Trump's inauguration was the biggest ever "period!" (It wasn't, no matter how you slice it - visual evidence
or TV ratings
). Yesterday, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway doubled down on that assertion -- and added that phrase to our lexicon. Conway also told us the President won't be releasing his tax returns after all,
despite campaign promises to eventually do so.
