Trump's Ongoing War on Facts
Posted by Mary Catherine Dunphy (+543) 11 days ago
It's hard to keep track of all of Trump's "alternative facts" but this link will attempt to list them in the future. Feel free to add what you find.

This entry is about Trump falsely claiming that the U.S. murder rate is at a 45 to 47 year high. (02/07/17)

Wow! We are only three weeks into Trump's presidency and now we have news organizations keeping track of Trump's "universe of alternative facts." It's going to be a very long four years and I suspect a very, very long list.

The official "alternative facts" of the Trump administration began with the size of the crowd at his inauguration. Here's Trevor Noah's take on things.

Here Trump's alternative fact for Thursday, February 9,2017. The day is young!

It took CNN just seconds to debunk Trump's latest false claim about Chris Cuomo. But as we all know Trump calls CNN "fake news." Trump isn't right about that claim either!

"The Federalist". Right.

Sure everybody lies. But Trump and his minions are the absolute champs. Hands down. They lie when the truth is right in front of everybody's nose. I truly believe Trump believes anything he says, no matter how obviously stupid, becomes the truth simply because he says it. Sad!

Three weeks into Trump's presidency and now everybody is lying??? Everybody? We are truly down Trump's rabbit hole in the alternative fact universe if you think everybody is lying. Many citizens (and that includes highly trained, skilled journalists, investigators, lawyers and judges) are still committed to facts and truth -- and ultimately preserving our democracy.
