Alternative facts: Kellyann's defense

In fact, this was less than factual, and many would brand it as a lie, But not Kellyann who insisted that these were alternative facts.

After Trumps Inauguration, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer went to the press to insist that this has been the biggest inauguration ceremony ever in America with over 1 million people in attendance.

In fact, this was less than factual, and many would brand it as a lie, But not Kellyann who insisted that these were alternative facts.

In an attempt to defend Sean Spicer Kellyann quoted to say that these were merely alternative facts. It may appear funny with social media making a mockery of her statement, but many experts insist that this is disturbing.

In essence, she is saying that there are facts to the general public and a separate set for the administration.

What would happen if the Trump administration would want to align the general truth and the government truth? Would they ask the employees to change data?

This seems like a gross exaggeration, then again, maybe not so for.

"This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration period both in person and around the globe," Said Seam Spicer. "This was the first time in our nation's history that floor coverings have been used to protect the grass on the Mall. That had the effect of highlighting any areas where people were not standing, while in years past the grass eliminated this visual."

Spicer blamed the set up for what appeared to a small crowd. He said that there were barriers that prevented the people from spreading as they did in past events. But in fact, the same walls were used in 2013 with individuals in attendance almost double of the attendance this year.
