    "Alternative Facts"

    This is the end result of the Libertarians treating all sources of information as "equals", and deciding on their own (often based on their own biases) what to believe and what not to believe.

    Alt Right? Alt Facts? Just because you put "Alt" or "Altnernative" in something doesn't make you hip!

    The examples the above article gives are apples and oranges to what is being discussed.
    Senator Inhofe bringing in a snowball to disprove climate change is a form of alternative facts.
    Claiming California's drought is over because it rained in San Francisco is an alternative fact.
    Claiming Donald Trump did a 7 country ban on anyone from seven countries is as bad as Obama "banning" new visa applications from just one country is an alternative fact.

    The explanation might be more palatable if Trump (and some of his people) weren't so given to just making stuff up and/or inventing facts. Trump has made stuff up even before his campaign (Obama is a Muslim Kenyan) and continued inventing stories ("saw thousand of NJ Muslims cheering after the WTCs fell", etc.). One can google fact checkers to see the whoppers he has told.

    Kellyann went on today telling about a fake massacre that never happened. This is the reality of the Trump administration and how his people feel they must find justification to non or their "alternate facts"
