Not even 48 hours into President Donald Trump’s official start of his presidency, things go from bad to worse. The trending topic on everyone’s lips has been how significantly smaller Trump’s inauguration crowd has been as opose to both of former President Barack Obama’s inaugurations. This has been such a controversy for Trump and his administration that he felt the need to call his first White House press conference led by Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
Spicer got on the mic and made claims that could be easily disproven about Trump’s crowd size at the inauguration. Spicer claimed that Trump’s inauguration had “the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration.” He also added the word “period”, for emphasis of course.
Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway, who at this point has clearly proven she is not to be underestimated, was being interviewed by Chuck Todd of Meet The Press when she was asked why would Spicer take this opportunity to spread falsehoods on such a trivial matter. Conway responded with this:
Don’t be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck. You’re saying it’s a falsehood, and they’re giving — our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that. But the point really is —
Alternative facts? LOL. That’s what we calling lies now? Naturally, Twitter had a field day. Check out some of funniest tweets below.
