Courtney Love's #alternativefacts Are Better Than The GOP's

Alternative fact--otherwise known as lying or falsity--first started this Sunday when Trump's mouth-piece, Kellyanne Conway said Press Secretary Sean Spicer's remark that it, "was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period." was not untrue but an alternative fact. Because we have eyes, it was clear to us that this was not #true and Conway's definition quickly became more absurd than Spice's claim itself, though very apropos for this new administration's rhetoric.

Courtney, I wouldn't be surprised if those were all fact (except for the second one). Women can do it all.
