A depart­ment of ‘al­ter­na­tive facts’ is re­quired

RE: Trump’s pres­i­dency

The Hamilton Spectator - - COMMENT -

Michael Flynn did not lie to Vice Pres­i­dent Pence, he merely pre­sented “al­ter­na­tive facts” re­gard­ing his deal­ings with the Rus­sian Am­bas­sador to the U.S. He did not re­sign his po­si­tion as Na­tional Se­cu­rity Advisor (“al­ter­na­tive fact”). “Al­ter­na­tive facts” have reached such com­mon us­age in the U.S. po­lit­i­cal arena, per­haps it’s time Pres­i­dent ‘The Don­ald’ cre­ated a cab­i­net po­si­tion — Sec­re­tary of Al­ter­na­tive Facts and Gov­ern­ment Speak! All pro­nounce­ments by the gov­ern­ment would have to be vet­ted by this sec­re­tariat to have all the ex­cess BS scraped off be­fore be­ing re­leased to the pub­lic through the ly­ing me­dia.
