Trump team using "alternative facts" to influence public opinion.

They are doing it to cynically manipulate and to subjugate their base and their supporters. They are using confusion to spread doubt between the political camps.

The latest example is how they are telling their followers that Trump is not under investigation. As if they would send a memo or an email to inform them of the progress of an on-going investigation.

The ability for deduction and logic are necessary to cope with this bunch of miscreants. The Trump team understands that they must keep their base together if they are to survive this scandal. They are using propaganda and PR to keep their flock together. Because they are hoping their supporters do not reach the point where they might ask, "What is wrong with investigating the Russians and those that are allied with them against America?"

1. Since yesterday, Trump's surrogates have been spewing the bullshit at full blast.

First, there was Trump's lawyer.

Then Newt says that James Comey may be under investigation.

Now Kellyanne is on Faux this morning telling us how
the Russia investigation is wasting tens of millions
of dollars.

And they're only getting started.

4. I don't like the label "alternative facts," because too many people interpret it

to mean just a different interpretation, rather than what is really involved --i.e., blatant lies.

Yeah, it is fun to mock KAC's absdurd phrase, but people often don't realize that "alternative facts" are not actually new "facts" or a different understanding of facts, but lies and nothing but lies.

6. It's all about the sell.

They believe they can sell "lies" just like they would sell a course at Trump University. If people buy it, it is a success.
