    On Meet the Press this morning, Chuck Todd called out Kellyanne Conway on President Trump's and Sean Spicer's outright lies on Saturday regarding the size of the inauguration crowds. Ms Conway, true to form, pushed back on Todd's assertion saying that Trump has "alternative facts". Todd called her alternative facts just plain lies. I only saw a short clip of it on Joy Reid's show, but will look for the discussion on Meet the Press later.

    Kelleyanne Conway gets under my skin the way she lies and twists the narrative on any issue of the day. Her boss, Donald Trump is never, never wrong.

    Kellyanne Conway is a robot.

    Here is the full Meet the Press interview compliments of Crooks and Liars:

    "During an interview on Meet the Press, Chuck Todd asked Conway why Spicer felt the need to berate the press over the weekend for accurately reporting that Trump's crowd sizes were dwarfed by the attendance at President Barack Obama's 2008 inauguration.

    "Don't be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck," Conway scoffed. "They're saying it's a falsehood and our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that."

    "Wait a minute," Todd interrupted. "Alternative facts! Four of the five facts that he uttered were just not true. Alternative facts are not facts, they're falsehoods."

    Conway tried to deflect, but the host pressed on: "You sent the press secretary out there to utter a falsehood on the smallest, pettiest thing. And I don't understand why you did it."

    "I don't think you can prove those numbers one way or the other," the Trump aide opined. "You can laugh at me all you want. You are, and I think it's actually symbolic of the way we're treated by the press. I'll just ignore it. I'm bigger than that. I'm a kind and gracious person."

    All I can say is sheesh. I still struggle for words when my blood pressure rises.

    Roy Cohn lives on. The sobering danger is that flushing out a liar that has charisma has the potential of building superpower for the liar. He has majority in both houses that will support him. Where we are now that things have gone this far is really sobering and dangerous. Is there a solution? There has been so much denial that it has been unfair.

    I hate to say this; it is the 1930's all over again; it looks exactly like Hitlers propaganda machine with also the same characters, like Himmler, Goering etc.

    I watched her as well. She is useless in my eyes. Distract, distort, and deliver his message of partial reality and misinformation. One day the fools will awaken.

    We are sadly entering a "post truth" America. That's a very dangerous thing.

    Huffington Post: After Promising To Release His Tax Returns, Trump Aide Says He Won’t Because ‘People Didn’t Care’

    “He’s not going to release his tax returns. We litigated this all through the election. People didn’t care,” White House advisor Kellyanne Conway said on ABC, two days after Trump took the oath of office.

    "She was answering a question about a White House petition for Trump to release his tax returns that had received over 200,000 signatures, a total that necessitates a White House response. An ABC poll from Jan. 12-15 found that 74 percent of the public wanted Trump to release his returns."

    So there you have it folks. Straight from Kellyanne Conway's mouth. Trump will never release his tax returns because "people don't care"...at least 26 percent of Americans don't care, the base of supporters. Kellyanne is getting tired of the dishonest media attacking President Trump over this.

    I guess this qualifies as more "alternative facts".

    Schmidt, this shows exactly what I said many times: What does he have to hide?????? Why was this guy not "vetted" in the first place. If I would do the same thing I would be in jail. Totally unbelievable!!! Does this country not have any "rules" for the "fake" rich????? Or is the guy only in "debt" and is ashamed to show that??? Today (this morning) an lawsuit will be started in New York about his conflicts of interests. I'm afraid this may end up as well as an "lead" balloon, because the Trump "mafia" has taken over. When are they finally going to find out that the guy only consists of lies and corruption??? Sorry; and America still thinks they are number one in the world? Yes they are number one in "stupidity" electing people without solid "screening". Absolutely unbelievable!!

    The Sheriff's of Nottingham are on duty in Trump's elite unit. I think it is safe to say they are more in line with Life's Not Fair Get Used Gates than they are with Penalty Tax Derivatives Sanders. The elite unit has no time or use for process or fairness.

    Why is the DNC silent about Trump's Cabinet. What possible reason can be keeping them silent? I dont think I have missed anything. Are they afraid of getting involved with negative rhetoric about billionaires?

    I'm confused. The DNC has been releasing official statements left and right about Trump's cabinet. They just released one mere seconds ago lambasting Rubio for supporting Rex Tillerson.

    "By ignoring his serious reservations about Tillerson's connections to Vladimir Putin, Marco Rubio is not only rolling over for Donald Trump, he's earning the nickname Trump gave him: Little Marco," DNC spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement.

    The DNC is shell shocked and pretty close to useless. Absolutely no real leadership and no new ideas. Like I said previously, what they're good at is losing and sadly they don't get to fail again for a while. Be patient, they will let us down as soon as possible.

    Elizabeth Warren will say something snarky on Twitter in a few days and it will be posted on Facebook. Anymore, that's as good as it gets.
