Facts

The late great Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said, "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts."

So make no mistake, when Kellyanne Conway talks about "alternative facts," what she means is lies.

Here's another quote for you: "“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."

That one is from Josef Goebbels. Keep him in mind when you hear the big lies repeated ad nauseum.
