Alternative facts:Spicer said:
"We know that 420,000 people used the D.C. Metro public transit yesterday, which actually compares to 317,000 that used it for President Obama’s last inaugural."
That's not accurate.
There were 783,000 trips on the Metro on Obama's inauguration day.
Alternative facts: Trump said he won the popular vote too, claiming over 3 million fraudulent votes. There is no evidence of this. Spokesman Sean Spicer said on Tuesday the claim was based on a 2008 Pew report on the number of people incorrectly registered to vote - either because they had moved or died. The person who wrote the study said in November that the study found no evidence of voter fraud.
Alternative FactsTrump said his administration did not contact Russia prior to the election, and that has been proven false. I have nothing to do with Russia,” he told reporters on Thursday. “To the best of my knowledge, no person that I deal with does.”
The denial stands at odds with statements by Russian officials, who have at least twice acknowledged contacts with aides to Mr. Trump before the election.
Alternative facts: Stephen Miller, a senior advisor, 31 years old, said illegal voters were bussed over from Massachusetts to New Hampshire for fraudulent votes - New Hampshire says they have no evidence that happened.
