“On Sunday’s ‘Meet the Press,’Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, called easily disproved claims made by White House press secretary Sean Spicer ‘alternative facts.’ A bewildered Chuck Todd responded, ‘Alternative facts are not facts.

By early Wednesday morning, the novel was the best-selling book on Amazon.com.” [nola.com]
