Alternative Facts in a Post-Truth America

Master of the self-serving falsehood in a post-truth administration.

Challenged on falsehoods, adviser says Trump team has ‘alternative facts’: President Trump’s aides are under fire after his press secretary made easily disproved claims about the size of the inauguration crowd. Chief counselor Kellyanne Conway sparred on “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd who said, “Alternative facts are not facts.”

‘She’s Good at Bullshit!’: Philadelphia TV Anchor Slams Kellyanne Conway With Blurted Admission: It’s a fact that was not lost on Mike Jerrick, one of the morning show anchors for Fox 29 in Philadelphia, who slammed Conway live on the air Monday by blurting out, “She’s good at bullshit!”

Truthiness: Truthiness is a quality characterizing a "truth" that a person making an argument or assertion claims to know intuitively "from the gut" or because it "feels right" without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts. For the derivation of Truthiness click HERE.

The 44th Resident of the white House (the White House was completed after George Washington’s term as president) is America’s first “Truthiness” Resident.

A recent truthiness example is: “WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump asserted in a private meeting with congressional leaders Monday night [1-23-2017] that he would have won the popular vote in the 2016 election if 3 million to 5 million immigrants living in the country illegally hadn't voted.

Trump made the debunked claim, without offering any evidence, at a White House meeting with Democratic and Republican leaders, according to a Democratic aide familiar with the exchange who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the private meeting.”

Another example of his delusional state is: “WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Wednesday [January 25, 2017] he would seek a "major investigation" on voter fraud in the November election, despite an overwhelming consensus among state officials, election experts and politicians that voter fraud is rare in the United States.”

Six impossible things before breakfast: Like the White Queen in Through the Looking Glass who said: “Why sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast' The 44th Resident of the White House seems to believe and tweets about a number of impossible things before breakfast.
