Kellyanne Conway's alternative realityThe day after White House press secretary Sean Spicer lied through an entire press briefing about the size of the crowds at President Donald Trump’s inauguration, Kellyanne Conway insisted he had done no such thing.

Host Chuck Todd immediately called out Conway for equating falsehoods with “alternative facts” ― she, like Trump, claims he had the biggest inauguration turnout ever, which is easily disproven with photos and data ― and then the dictionary itself stepped in to help clear things up.

Trump doling out plum adviser jobs to rich friends

GuilianiRudy Giuliani, one of Donald Trump's top political surrogates and a millionaire, is running point on the president-elect's cybersecurity policies. Carl Icahn, a billionaire friend in New York, is charged with cutting regulations. And, now, Richard LeFrak and Steven Roth, two of his top real-estate friends, are special advisers to build a $1 trillion infrastructure plan.

Sean Spicer slams media over inauguration crowd coverage

Sean SpicerWhite House press secretary Sean Spicer came to the briefing room Saturday to chastise journalists for their coverage of attendance at President Trump’s inauguration before leaving the briefing room without taking any questions.

‘We’re Not Going Away’: Huge Crowds for Women’s Marches Against Trump

Women's marchHundreds of thousands of women gathered in Washington in a kind of counterinauguration after President Trump took office on Friday. A range of speakers and performers cutting across generational lines rallied near the Capitol before marchers made their way toward the White House.

• They were joined by crowds in cities across the country: In Chicago, the size of a rally so quickly outgrew early estimates that the march that was to follow was canceled for safety. In Manhattan, Fifth Avenue became a river of pink hats, while in downtown Los Angeles, even before the gathering crowd stretched itself out to march, it was more than a quarter mile deep on several streets.
