The Trump Administration’s First 100 Lies Aren’t Accidents But a Deliberate Counter-Reality. The harder the 45th President and his team insist on “alternate facts,” the harder objective reality pushes back.
– MICHAEL TOMASKY
The Trump era started out more creepily than I could have imagined.
From the dystopian inaugural address to that Sean Spicer catastrophe to the Kellyanne Conway “alternate facts” fiasco to the President’s Nero-esque performance at the CIA to Donald Trump’s own lies about the size of his… inaugural crowds and weather, it was a lot scarier than I thought it would be.
What did I expect? I didn’t expect much. But I didn’t expect this. These were not, to use a commonly employed euphemism of mainstream journalism, the “missteps” of a green new administration. These were deliberate acts that fell into two categories.
