Dictionary trolls Conway by defining the word ‘fact’
The Merriam-Webster dictionary trolled Kellyanne Conway on Sunday by educating her about the definition of the word “fact.”
The Hill reports:
The dictionary noted on its website that searches for the word “fact” spiked after Conway’s Sunday morning use of the phrase “alternative facts” during an interview NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“You’re saying it’s a falsehood. And they’re giving, Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that,” Conway told Chuck Todd, referencing the White House’s claim about crowd sizes at President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
Todd pushed back against Conway’s use of the phrase.
“Look, alternative facts are not facts,” he said. “They’re falsehoods.”
