I've NEVER done any drugs in my life nor have I ever swore in public nor smoked a cigarette #alternativefact

Today is the day Kellyanne Conway used the phrase “alternative facts” in defending the work of Sean Spicer, President Trump’s White House press secretary. Beyond absurd, her language is actually incredibly dangerous for our democracy. So, at times, I have to laugh to ward off the sense of doom. There were some funny pokes at the idea of #alternativefacts today on Twitter, and I particularly liked Courtney Love Cobain’s self-effacing humor.
