Trump’s White House Press Secretary explained to Fox Host Sean Hannity what “alternative facts” actually means.
In an exclusive interview with Hannity Tuesday in the White House, Spicer discussed how the mainstream media consistently twists facts.
Spicer said, “The press was trying to make it seem like we were ignoring the facts when the facts are that sometimes … you look at a situation … in the same way you can look at a weather report,” Spicer said. “One weather report comes out and says it’s going to be cloudy and the next one says there’s going to be light rain. No one lied to you.”
Spicer went on to discuss how the mainstream media has a predisposition to undermine everything President Trump says and does. Spicer also discussed how he came up with his numbers concerning the number of people who watched the inauguration.
“If you add up the number of people who watched [the inauguration] online, on Twitter, Twitter Live, Facebook Live, on YouTube, it broke all sorts of records,” Spicer told “Hannity.” “You combine that with what Fox did online, how many people streamed it, 31 million people watched it on the broadcast networks. Combine all that.
Where are [the mainstream media’s] facts? Because I got called a liar for something that I can add up and say, ‘Here’s how we come up with this number.’ And yet, where’s the number that [proves] that I’m wrong? In fact, the default was … ‘you’re lying.'”
