White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer just announced the incoming administration can disagree with facts. He told reporters on Monday:
“I believe that we have to be honest with the American people, but I think sometimes we can disagree with the facts. Our intention is never to lie to you.”
This followed Spicer’s first-ever press conference on Saturday in which he lied about the crowd size at Trump’s inauguration ceremony saying, “This was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe.” Aerial photographs tell another, truthful story.
This also followed an interview on “Meet The Press” where Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway claimed there are such things as “alternative facts.”
Spicer continued to push the lie about the inauguration crowd size on Monday. Because of course he did.
