On January 22nd, 2017 on Meet the Press, President Trump senior advisor Kellyanne Conway said that White House press secretary Sean Spicer gave "alternative facts" not falsehoods when describing the 2017 presidential inauguration crowd size. At a press conference on January 21st, 2017, Spicer said, "That was the largest audience to witness an inauguration, period." However, the statement was quickly fact-checked by media and found to be not true (Politifact.com).
