Trump's press secretary lies and bashes media

Trump's press secretary lies and bashes media

"It undermines the credibility of the entire White House press office on day one". And then some games we are told will eventually come out one day just vanish without a trace. However, Trump said that the media "showed a field where there was practically nobody standing there".

On the morning news today, Donald Trump's campaign strategist Kellyanne Conway said that Spicer wasn't lying, but rather presenting "alternative facts" - yet multiple outlets have been able to verify the falsity of Spicer's statements.

Speaking at Central Intelligence Agency headquarters on Saturday, Donald Trump blasted the "dishonest media" for underestimating the numbers who came out to witness his swearing-in as the 45th president on Friday. It's a lie. We caught (the media). "But it's a lie", Trump said. Spicer claimed that "we are going to hold the press accountable as well".

After Todd questioned Conway, who is counselor to the president, about Spicer's claims, Conway accused the media of spreading a "falsehood" about the removal of the bust of Martin Luther King Jr. from the White House.

"I have been on their cover like 14 or 15 times". "I don't think you can prove those numbers one way or the another", she said.

For those who missed it, Spicer graced the lectern of the White House briefing room on Saturday to dispute the mainstream media's efforts "to minimize the enormous support that had gathered on the Mall" during Trump's inauguration.

Challenged on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday about Spicer making incorrect claims, Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway made a startling characterization: that Spicer gave "alternative facts".
