Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:
Trump’s very bad week ending on a sour note as our little boy president’s ignorance and temperament are on full display for the world to see, Trump threatens Comey – before being forced to cancel his FBI visit due to an unlikely warm and welcome reception – with what appears to be his intention of blackmailing him, ten alternative facts for the post truth world courtesy of our Liar-in-Chief and the miscreants in his administration, turning his presidency into a bad joke, Trump’s anger – compounded by his profound ignorance – could prove dangerous, Trump may have just written his own articles of impeachment, putting a fraud in charge of trying to prove his odious ‘voter fraud’ claims will prove entertaining – before it comes back to bite him in the ass, our dimwitted dumbass president’s anti-immigration charades took another hit, high crimes and misdemeanors, virtually everyone has something to say about Trump’s terrible presidency, Trump’s GOP brown shirts still not moved enough – having lost their spines – to challenge our wannabe dictator, yet another illegible interview from our incoherent Bullshitter-in-Chief and a whole lot more.

A look at our illegitimate, minority-elect President and his miscreant’s attempts to validate their alternate reality:
“A word on definition: “post truth” is emphatically not the same as lies, spin and falsehood. What is new is not mendacity but the public’s response to it – the growing primacy of emotional resonance over fact and evidence, the replacement of verification with social media algorithms that tell us what we want to hear. Truth is losing its value as society’s reserve currency, and legitimate scepticism is yielding place to pernicious relativism.
Here, as a primer, are 10 classic examples of post truth, past and present.
1. ‘Alternative facts’
On the morning after Donald Trump’s inauguration in January, Sean Spicer, the new White House press secretary, called a special press conference and insisted belligerently that “this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period, both in person and around the globe”. The crowd in photographs of Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration looked larger, he claimed, because of new white floor coverings laid on the National Mall that had the effect of “highlighting areas where people were not standing, while in years past, the grass eliminated this visual”.
As angry as Spicer and his boss might be, their position was hilariously unsustainable. It fell to Kellyanne Conway, senior aide to the president, to find some way of squaring the epistemological circle, of reconciling bogus claim with photographic evidence. On NBC’s Meet the Press the next day, Conway told Chuck Todd that there was a perfectly reasonable explanation: “Don’t be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck. You’re saying it’s a falsehood […] Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that.”…”
