    Alternative facts? Can you share a few?

    Trump's spokesperson apparently offered alternative facts to the public. What alternative facts do you know?

    It would be interesting to hear all of what she had to say rather than only hearing that one line because she was cut off in the reports, but alternative facts are nothing new.  One that comes to mind is scientists/doctors in the 50s telling the public that antibiotics would eliminate disease in the world.  All we had to do was wait a while to see the consequences of that sort of thinking.  Docs misuse them even today so it's no wonder that the public did/does the same thing.  Now we have incredibly dangerous super bugs. All we have to do is wait to see what will happen in each of the situations the new administration is attacked over.  Just as we saw what happened with the new healthcare program collapsing in on itself, we will see what happens as a result of terrorists being released from Guantanamo.  The new administration has the same opportunity to do do well or not.  No matter what we feel about the person, to hope for failure and even attack instead of taking grownup action to call for policy that is good for the country is to suicidally attack oneself because we are in this together.

    All the Wikileaks and Project Veritas revelations mainstream media didn't cover but didn't deny were true.
