Deflection and ‘alternative facts’
As Daniel Patrick Moynihan once put it: “You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.”
It’s going to be a long four (or, God forbid, eight) years. But at least the mainstream media are finally, belatedly, holding Trump’s feet to the fire.
(In case I’ve not mentioned it before, I abhor Kellyanne Conway almost as much as her boss. But her deflection and “alternative facts” declaration are best heard directly from her.)
