Facts are Stubborn Things, Particularly When You Disagree With Them

Andrew Buncombe, The Independent:

Donald Trump’s controversial press secretary has defended his claim that record numbers watched the president’s inauguration – saying “sometimes we disagree with the facts”.

Arguing over how many people attended Mr. Trump’s Friday inauguration is, admittedly, small ball.

Admitting that the Trump administration “sometimes disagrees with the facts” is a wholesale admission that facts don’t matter to this government.

John Adams, second president of the United States:

Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.

And Trump’s supporters called Hillary Clinton “crooked.” My guess is, they won’t care about this at all.

These guys will be lucky if they last four years. Even Nixon was smarter about his lies. Look where it got him.
