Alternative facts

Last night, I learnt the most ingenious expression in the English language, uttered by Trump’s White House Secretary Kellyanne Conway. When pressed by the media on the Trump administration’s exaggeration of the figure of the turnout at the inauguration ceremony, she said they had been citing “alternative facts”.

Oh my God. So there is no intended misinformation; there are no lies. There are only “alternative facts”.
