there are no alternative facts. columnist ed montini is not george clooney, and fewer people attended trump's inauguration than obama's.

did you know “denialism” is an actual word?

i’ve never used it before, never had any reason to use it, until now.

according to the dictionary, it means “the deliberate choice to deny the truth about something because it is too uncomfortable or difficult to accept.”

you already know how this works.

montini: flack lies matter (when the attack dog works for trump)

it is president donald trump’s secret to success.

an inauguration crowd that is larger than his is not larger, no matter what the p og h evidence says.

getting beat at the ballot box by over three million votes is the result of illegal immigrant voting for which there is absolutely no proof.

an actual judge who rules against him is a "so-called" judge who is allowing terrorists into the country, even though no terrorist acts have been committed in the u.s. by people from these countries, and all of them have gone through a roughly two-year vetting process.

and when public opinion polls show sagging popularity numbers and less than enthusiastic support for a travel ban, trump tweeted:

there you have it.

facts you don’t like are not facts.

trump on monday said the media downplays or ignores terrorist attacks, and the list he provided to “prove” this actually included the paris attacks that killed 130 people (no coverage there, right?) and the orlando, fla., nightclub m acre that killed 49 (what? you heard of that?) and the m shooting in san bernardino.

the media downplayed them? ignored them?

see how that works? facts he doesn’t like are not facts.

imagine how that would work in your daily life.

more: what's really driving trump's media attacks?

the fuel gauge in your automobile points to “e” but you won’t allow that to prevent you from believing you can’t make it to vegas. from yuma.

you have chest pains and your so-called doctor tells you that your “bad” cholesterol is 350 but you won’t let that stop you from ordering the bacon double-cheeseburger. with fries. and a milkshake.

the rotten egg smell in your house is overwhelming but you’re unconcerned with fake news about gas leaks and fire up the front burner on the range.

a political demigod claims m ive voter fraud -- without evidence -- tells easily disproved lies, attacks the media, demonizes immigrants and his political opposition (which he calls “enemies”) and … we elect him.
