Kellyanne Conway Defends White House Press Secretary's Falsehoods as 'Alternative Facts'

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to Donald Trump, is responding to criticism of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer‘s first press conference.

She was asked about falsehoods he claimed when it came to talking about numbers of people in attendance at the inauguration.

“You’re saying it’s a falsehood and Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that,” she told NBC‘s Meet the Press. “I don’t think you can prove those numbers one way or another. There’s no way to quantify crowd numbers.”

She also told NBC, “If we’re going to keep referring to the press secretary in those types of terms I think we’re going to have to rethink our relationship here.”

    This press conference was so embarrassing.

    Alternative facts = lies
    Apparently for Trump and co,it is too difficult to recognize they are wrong or they fail.

  • Star J.

    It was hilarious when he lied and said: “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration – period.”

    I guess Spencer was smoking the biggest joint of all time before the press conference.

    LEAve it to the liberal media to make comparisons. if it makes you feel better to think Obama had a bigger crowd go for it. We all know Obama won twice. But Hillary lost. Thank the heavens!!!!

  • plez

    Following the party line. When are you going to think and not follow along to the spin of Kellyanne.

    The media was doing it’s job by reporting the FACTS. It was Trump that sent his press secretary to LIE the number of the crowd.
    Trust if Trump has his press secretary lie about this small thing, he will lie to you about what is really important.

  • illumina

    No way to quantify crowd numbers? Really? Are we on the road to agreeing that there is no way to prove or know anything? Make up your own facts?

  • Esoteric11

    Pathetic attempt to deflect.

  • ola akande

    GW Bush had bigger crowd at his inauguration in comparison to Trump bc we can quantify it by numbers lol thats a fact. just the idea of any Potus saying that “nothing can be fact checked” is absurd lmao & if ppl believe that than they’re morons

  • Shelby

    Here’s the thing. I don’t care care. :). Trump supporters maybe have no time to travel because they’re busy working. I know that’s true for me. No protest time either. ;)

  • ola akande

    right i heard that too…”we were at work, we had no time to show up to the inauguration”…..yall claimed to vote for him over other Republican noms bc y’all had no jobs lmao so which one is it? lmaoooo

    “No your honor, I didn’t lie under oath, I just gave you alternative facts”.

  • Shelby

    I actually wanted fiorina. And my second choice was Carson. But ok. Trump better than Hillary.

    Paycheck to paycheck. CAnt take day off for stuff like that. Need my days off for other things. Not to mention travel costs! Who can afford that? Going to DC would’ve cost around a thousand for me. No way!

  • Haven

    Yep. That same lame remark is imprinted on that shared brain cell.

  • Haven

    So, all the “millions” of Trump supporters that showed up must be lazy and don’t want to work?

  • Shelby

    Or a more flexible job? Or none? Kinda situational So what

  • Shelby

    He won. YOU know? He. WON. Why argue over stupid stuff? Like the size of the gathering? Meaningless

  • Haven

    I agree. How about reposting your point onto your President’s twitter acct, because the whining is getting ridiculous.

    For the record, most people are beyond accepting that he won. It’s all of the subsequent stupid s*** that he says and does that gets him dragged in the media. He may not be everyone’s choice for President, but he should at least start behaving like one.

  • Shelby

    Yeah idk. I think he’s too quick to fight back on stupid liberal crap. LET IT GO. idk why he doesn’t , but whatever Both sides are ridiculous.

  • Esoteric11

    Trump is the one who lied about it in the first place. Duh!

  • Visitor

    This is why Trump won. Too many Americans believe in alternative facts.

  • Joy

    Oh …my god. I can’t even believe her. I am gobsmacked to a hitherto unreached degree.

    Spicer has admitted he gave false statements now, so that’s something.
    Now if only the repub voters can stop lying too. It should be funny to watch them talk their way around this admission from him.
    “if we make a mistake, I’ll do our best to correct it,” per the Washington Post.
    On that front, Spicer acknowledged that he gave inaccurate figures Saturday about Metro ridership on inauguration day.
