If the first official weekend of Donald Trump’s presidency is any indication of what the next four years will be like, it’s safe to say we’re in for one eventful presidential term.
Trump’s former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway came under fire for using the phrase “alternative facts,” to defend the Trump administration’s false claim that Donald Trump’s inauguration was seen by the largest audience ever.
"Alternative facts are not facts. They are falsehoods," Chuck Todd tells Pres. Trump's counselor Kellyanne Conway this morning. WATCH: pic.twitter.com/Ao005dQ13r

Merriam-Webster, the same dictionary that shaded Trump over his ’unpresidented’ spelling error, quickly came for Conway, who has been sarcastically dubbed the “Trump Whisperer.”
Sharing a link to a news article on Conway’s defense of “alternative facts,” Merriam-Webster tweeted, “A fact is a piece of information presented as having objective reality.”

Merriam-Webster wasn’t alone. Twitter users couldn’t believe Conway’s comments and immediately commenced to throwing some major shade.

Hey, Kelly Conway there's no such thing as "alternative Facts " there's only truth and lies

Despite conflicting aerial photos, television ratings and reports on subway records in the nation’s capital, Conway stands with the Trump’s administration’s initial assertion.
