Once again, I had absolutely no plans to write about the Trump administration today. But before posting what I had prepared, I first browsed the news. Silly me. Because there was the story about Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway defending Trump's Muslim ban on Chris Matthew's MSNBC show yesterday by talking about the "Bowling Green massacre."
How appropriate to know that the Trump administration ignores real Jews in the actual Holocaust but mourns fake victims in a non-existent "massacre." For the record, this appears to be how Alternative Facts exist in the wild.
Later Ms. Conway went on Twitter to explain her works as a mere mistake. And noting that two Iraq refugees had been arrested in an FBI sting and were designated "terrorists." And then claiming an un-named liberal editor had written under a fake account.
Never mind that I'm not sure how one confuses two terrorists with an actual massacre --
The reality is that, yes, we all do make makes mistakes. But with Ms. Conway's track record for the past two years, and calling hers "Alternative Facts," we have no reason to believe what she said yesterday was a mistake -- or that anything in her tweet is real.
And again, yes, we all do make mistakes. But newspapers print 10,000 stories a month, and IF they make a single mistake, the correct it and apologize for it. Ms. Conway makes up stories daily and calls them "Alternative Facts."
And as for tossing in editors, then for the sake of comparison, the editor of far right-wing site *daily* made of up numerous hateful, racist lies, and Trump made him his chief advisor,
But I'm still trying to figure out how one mistakes an arrest of two suspected terrorists as being a massacre...
