we talked a lotabout the falsehoods
that Donald Trump and his teammade over the weekend.
But on Sunday, we learnedthat Trump's senior advisor,
Kellyanne Conway, hasa different term for falsehood.
The president askedThe White House press secretary
to come outin front of the podium
for the first timeand utter a falsehood.
Why did he do that?
Don't be so overly dramaticabout it, Chuck. What it...
You're saying it's a falsehood,and they're giving...
Sean Spicer,our press secretary,
gave... alternative factsto that.
I like that she can tastethe bull (bleep) in her mouth.
-I like that.-(laughter)
Just that momentwhere Kellyanne's like,
"He gave...Mm. What is that? Mm.
Oh. Oh, what is that?"
My favorite part is,you can tell she's lying,
because right after she says it,
she tries to casuallyflip her hair afterwards,
like she's all chill.
Our press secretary gave...
alternative facts to that,but the point remains...
TODD: Wait a minute.Alternative facts?!
-...that there's... (clears herthroat) -Alternative facts for
the five facts he uttered.
It's the choke,the laugh, the hair.
I honestly wishmy girl had a tell that big.
-(laughter)-I would win every argument.
I'd be like, "Hey, I heard youwere at the club last night."
She'd be like, "No, I went to...my mother's."
(laughter,applause and cheering)
"I thought your mom was dead."
"Yeah, but she's... better now."
Look, the truth is,not all facts are created equal.
To find out which ones are,we turn to Desi Lydic
and What the Actual Fact?
-(applause)-Oh, no, no, no, no, no, Trevor,
you can't keep mein your little fact box anymore.
This is Trump's America now.
Time to shine a lighton the alternative truth.
Let's talk about the size
of the 45th president'sinauguration crowd.
NEWSWOMAN: Trump blamed the media, again,
for underestimating the number of people
who attended his inauguration.
This despite these photos taken from the Washington Monument
showing smaller crowds
than during Barack Obama's inauguration in 2009.
Yeah, see,the media wants you to believe
that the crowd was smallbased on what your eyeballs
are telling your brain.
But here's an alternative fact.
A lot of people left earlybecause, as Trump predicted,
they got tired of winning.
Another alternative fact.
You just couldn't seeTrump's crowd
because they were wearingpolar bear skin.
You know, the mediadidn't see Trump's crowds
during the campaign,
and I am not surprisedthey can't see them now.
And that is why Trump's claim
that he had the biggestinauguration crowd ever
is so true.
(laughter, whooping, applause)
Oh... and what a shocker,
no matter what Trump saidthis weekend,
people tried to delegitimize it.
They were even doing itwith the weather.
God looked down and he said,"We're not gonna let it rain
on your speech."
In fact, I... when I firststarted, I said, "Oh, no."
First line, I got hitby a couple of drops.
And I said, "Oh, this...this is too bad,
but we'll go right through it."
But the truth is thatit stopped immediately.
It was amazing. And thenit became really sunny...
NEWSMAN: ...Donald Trump yesterday at the CIA,
uh, referred to the sun coming out
after his inaugural speech,
when in factit was cloudy and raining.
-(laughter)-Oh. Oh, I guess CNN knows
what God was doingwith the weather
better than Donald Trump, theman he chose to be president.
-(laughter)-Also, that wasn't rain.
Those were tears of joy
splashing upfrom the record-setting crowd.
-(laughter)-Besides, if it was raining,
why was George W. Bushjust holding his poncho.
Then... then playing peekaboowith his poncho.
Then looking for WMD'sin his poncho.
I mean, that is whyI rate Trump's claim
that it didn't rainhis whole speech
as tremendously true.
You know... but the worst iswhen the media lies
to drive wedgesbetween Trump and other people.
I have a running warwith the media.
They are among the mostdishonest human beings on Earth.
And they sort of made it soundlike I had a... feud
with the intelligence community.
And I just wantto let you know,
the reasonyou're number one stop,
uh, it is exactly the opposite.
NEWSWOMAN: The president has often criticized
the U.S. intelligence community...
-WOMAN: Ooh.-Here's an alternative fact.
President Trump has never deniedcomparing the CIA to Nazis.
To him, that's a good thing.
If anything, he's more likelyto retweet them.
I'll tell youwhat I'm concerned about,
and that is this witch hunt,
where the media takes thingsthat President Trump has said
and remembers them.
-(laughter)-And I got to say,
personally, as a woman,I find it very offensive
that the press gets to decidewhat President Trump
is or isn't allowed to say.
I mean, frankly, I'm gladwe don't have a woman president,
because what I am seeingright now is blatant sexism.
And that is why I rateTrump's statement
that he's always respectedthe intelligence community
truer than fact.
-(applause)-Wow, Desi, that was, uh,
