Through the Truthing Glass

Kellyanne Conway

knows Donald Trump

speaks in lies

and she must knowingly use lies to bolster

the new president's alternate reality

as something the public should accept

by declaring the existence

of "alternative facts"

about the size

of his inauguration attendance.

Stephen Colbert invented the word "truthiness"
on The Colbert Report

during the Bush administration

but has now been outdone

by the Trump administration's authentic use
of real and transparent dishonesty.
