Why do Democrats have a problem with "alternative facts"? by Tony Garcia
Answer by Tony Garcia:
“Alternative facts” fall on that sliding scale of lies between harmless untruths and malicious falsehoods. For those of us who consider veracity an ethical end, so-called alternative facts are not harmless exaggerations but skew toward an obfuscation of the truth.
Now, Donald Trump and his aides are by no means the only politicos who have mislaid their moral compass. However, as they continue to propagate alternative facts, they may find themselves so steeped in imbroglios of their own making that no one will attach veracity to anything they say.
