Size matters bigly to Donald Trump.
On his first day on the job, press secretary Sean Spicer was sent to the podium to defend the size of the size-sensitive new president's inauguration crowd.
"This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration -- period -- both in person and around the globe," said Spicer.
Spicer's huge claims sent Kellyanne Conway into spin mode in an interview with NBC's Chuck Todd.
From a Washington Post report: "Why put him out there for the very first time, in front of that podium, to utter a provable falsehood?" Chuck Todd asked Conway, counselor to the president. "It's a small thing, but the first time he confronts the public, it's a falsehood?"
After some tense back and forth, Conway offered this:
At this point, a visibly exasperated Todd cut in. "Wait a minute. Alternative facts? Alternative facts? Four of the five facts he uttered . . . were just not true. Alternative facts are not facts; they're falsehoods."
Conway is awfully good at what she does, but now we know the truth.
Trump doesn't embellish or lie or tell falsehoods and neither does the Trump team. It's just that his alternative universe has its own set of alternative facts.
It's up to the dishonest lying media to determine the real facts from the fake ones.
